Long-term stays @ McLeod Ganj - DharamkotHi guys: will be solo traveling in northern India + Nepal, this summer onwards. Will stay for 1 month in McLeod Ganj area. Probably July or August. Any suggestions on a place for long term stay? An ashram (yoga/meditation) could be an alternative. Thanks in advance for your input. Be well and be happy...

1July and August are the worst months to be in McLeod Ganj because of the heavy monsoon.
There are a lot of apartments you can rent by the month, better than a hotel if you want to do a long stay; Gandhi's apartments and the Pink House are good options. I don't know how to contact them in advance, probably just turn up and ask around. It is very easy to find your way around McLeod. Every cafe and restaurant will know about those places.
You could also try looking in Contact magazine, a very useful free newsletter for travellers. If you are interested in studying Buddhism, the Library of Tibetan Works and Archives has some rooms for rent but you need to book those well in advance.

8Thank you all for your input. I am very glad to tell you that have arranged a stay with a local Tibetan family thru LHA. I will be arriving from a couple of weeks at Ladakh and Spiti valleys where, I am told, there is no monsoon. So, I will make it at Dharamsala by mid August til mid september. Waterproofs will be in my pack for when necessary !!
Your comments on Contact magazine and LHA has really allowed me to find exactly what I wanted. Really appreciate your feedback guys. Be well and be happy...

9I was there at the same time last year and found a travel umbrella pretty useful. Because sometimes you won't be wanting to carry an umbrella around, and you could just put a collapsible travel umbrella in a day pack. Of course some people make do with a raincoat, but the trouble there is it is often too hot for a raincoat.
