It is very cold in winter as Dhauladar range of hills, at over 15000 feet, is close by and covered with thick snow during winter and sometimes in Autumn and Spring. The natural features surrounding the town include rich forests of Pine and Deodars. Rice, wheat and tea are grown around Dharamsala.

Prayer Wheels @ mcleodganj Temple
Prayer flags and wheels are other unusual forms of prayer. A prayer wheel is a cylinder. These range from ones which can be held in the hand to large drums outside holy places. Inside is a paper scroll on which thousands of prayers are written. Prayers will also be written on flags that will be placed out in the breeze. Buddhists believe that each flutter of the flag and turn of the wheel signifies a prayer.

Anyone who spends time in Dharamsala or McLeod Ganj makes the hike up through Bhagsunag to the waterfall up the canyon.It is a popular spot: while people go to enjoy the rough mountain scenery or swim in the pool at the waterfall's base, many wash their clothes in the cold, clear monsoon-swollen river that flows down toward the Indian plains.
