Tourists and trekkers have been coming to Dharamsala McLeodGanj, Bhagsunag and Dharamkot and trekking to Triund Hill for to be close with Nature.
To breath fresh air, enjoy the views of Mountains, Deep Horizon and seek Peace are some of the main reasons that made McLeodGanj and Triund Hill a favorite spot in Kangra district in Himachal Pradesh, though Manali and Simla are still pretty popluar. But in both locations like Shimla and Manali, Nature has to pay a very heavy price for helping out stressed tourists.
In the name of comfort and luxury, we have converted Shimla the Queen of Hills to a Queen of Concrete Hills and Manali is also on the same direction to become another concrete jungle. Beside this the term Development (Negative Development) has also caused more of damage to Nature and with that we are spoiling the beauty of Mother Nature, the same very beauty for which tourists come here to enjoy.
In Kangra district too famous spots like Dharamsala, McLeodGanj, Bhagsunag, Dharamkot, Naddi and Satovari are getting developed with concrete structures. The felling of Green Cover (Pine and Cedar) has been rampant since year 2000 and it has just crossed its limit this time.
Many new hotels and restaurants have come up in places where earlier the spots were covered with thick Deodar, Pine and Rhododendron trees. Now we even want to develop Mountains by constructing Cable Cars and Rope Ways.
With all this unbalanced and negative development we are killing Nature and the things that are the main attractions in Himachal Pradesh.
Back in Simla as you are about to reach Shimla, the view from distant is very disturbing unless you don’t understand what Nature is. Few months back, in TaraDevi region of Simla hundereds of age old Trees were uprooted for some fancy hotel.
In 2000 if you visited Bhagsu Waterfall the Waterfall and the surrounding area used to be more greener and even the Waterfall was huge and alot more beautiful. In Dharamkot, Naddi and Satovari too the green cover has shrunk to a large extent and now you only see hotel rooftops.
We modern humans have no respect for anything and anyone. Technologically we are advancing but when it comes about Humanity, Senstivity and (Etiquettes) Cleanliness of Nature, we are loosing it day by day. It is only for the Photosession and to be in news. We even don’t help out the fellow humans in need than how come we can feel the pain of Mother Nature. We are pretty Modern and over educated!
And most of all with all this kind development, Dharamsala McLeodGanj are certainly losing the International Trousit base!
