Zostel Mcleod, our cosy backpacker hostel is tucked in a scenic, peaceful corner of Dharamkot with stunning mountain views & a great cafe. While initially famous for being the residence of Dalai Lama, Mcleodganj has long been synonymous with the backpacking culture of India. Fondly known as Little Lhasa because of the large Tibetan settlement here, Dharamkot is famous for housing cafes offering the most delicious dishes from around the world and the views of the mighty Dhauladhars. Besides the Dalai Lama temple and museum, you can spend a peaceful time in Bhagsu and Dharamkot villages. In Dharamkot, Zostel is about 3 Km from the Mclow Square. Majestic views of the valley would be an understatement!
