Dharamsala the starting point of the trek is a hill station established during British regime in India. It is located on the base of Dhauladhar mountain range. The place also served as a base for the military troops during British period. Attracted by the beauty of the place many European officer started making it their home and the this settlement of European was named McLeod Ganj, in the honor of the Late Sir Donald Mcleod, the former Lt. Governor of the province.

Now Dharamsala is mainly divided in two parts: Lower Dharamsala, is the district headquarter of Kangra and is the main commercial place.
