    McLeod Ganj

    McLeod Ganj is a village in the suburbs of Dharamshala in Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh. The place is also known as "Little Lhasa" or "Dhasa" because of its large population of Tibetans. The village is predominantly inhabited by a hill tribe, the Gaddis. The place got its name after Lord David McLeod, the English lieutenant governor of Punjab, who is believed to find the village in 1848. McLeod Ganj comes under the circuit of Dhauladhar Range.
