McLeod Ganj Kangra - Should I visit?

Also spelled McLeodGanj  India, this little Lhasa, at 6831 ft according to Wikipedia, is essentially where the exiled Tibetan government lives now, along with the Dalai Lama, and a lot of Tibetan Monks. So many people make the spiritual journal there to connect with the holy mountains, and the people there, along with taking courses, workshops, etc. Some people look at moving to McLeodGanjKangra too, here's a Youtube on life there:
