This post describes what to expect when going from the Dharamshala Airport to MacLeod Ganj, Dharamshala, India – the central tourist area of Dharamshala.

We took a taxi from the airport to McLeod Ganj for 800 rupees, though the exact price depends on the location of your residence. Go to the prepaid taxi booth and talk to the booth. There will be a number of drivers and a clerk outside of the stand. The drivers may try to circumvent you from speaking to the booth, ignore them temporarily and get the slip signed off. In our case, we ended up getting a lower price confirmed by the booth.
