H'lo..
A girl said to me once about McLeod, that during the heavy rains didn't see the sun for weeks,that it was real cold.. etc.
So this helped me tons.
Any advice about Dalhousie pro and con.

Same as McLeod, cloud, rain, cool in cloud.

Are close enough can visit both, or try Spiti and may see the sun.

thanks for the info. Perhaps if I land a decent room it'll be tolerable. What do you think? BTW. Where besides Spiti could I survive the monsoon?

Priority 1 is affordable. (Un affordable was Mcleodganj & Dharamsala in March. A room that was 300 IC was now 700 IC. 2 is coolish climate (not tropical). Mountains are 3. Anywhere in India but not tropics. Thank you.

I'm out of India during the monsoon; I gave up. BUT where is affordable with the above priorities in the fall? Thanks so much.

.. well if that ghetto of Mcleodganj is too costly for you ! perhaps need to walk a few km away from town centre.

For rainy times the suggestion of Spiti stands.

ok. I am not in india for the monsoon. This is for fall.

Do you know where to hang out in india where prices aren't so inflated? I mean, it was weird to see that 2 years could hold so many bizarre changes to prices...thank you.
