Mcleod Ganj is a small and pretty town located in Dharamshala! They say it has lost its charm in recent years; the weather is not as great as it used to be and commercialization of the town has taken a toll on the natural beauty and scenery it once boasted of. For me, it was still one of the prettiest locations on the trip! In my recent backpacking trip to Himachal Pradesh with The Land Out There, it was the first place that we hit. Views of the snow-clad mountains of the Himalayan ranges and walking on pavements along the deep valleys is what our two-day stay in this town consisted of.
Backpacking as a concept fascinates one and all! Living like a nomad in new and strange places, talking to new people from all over the globe and eating different kinds of food; whether you are a person that can pull it off or not, the thought of giving it a shot has definitely crossed your mind at some point in time or the other. Bringing the concept of backpacking to India, The Land Out There is one such company that is making travelling across the country easy and affordable for youngsters like us. Based in Bombay, TLOT is run by two young minds, Sherwin and Divya, and gives you the closest experience of backpacking that you can have.
