During 2nd week the group would move to Mcloedganj in Dharamshala which is a tourist town and also the Secretariat of the Tibetan Government in exile.

Bandh in Solan district is a small unknown hilly village with 30 odd families in Solan district of Himachal Pradesh.  The area is scenic and peaceful where the living people are dependent on farming.  RUCHI is situated 1000 meters off the village.  The altitude varies between 1,050 meters (3,200 ft) and 2,000 meters (6,560ft).  Due to the high demand of work force, slums have crept in and are also affecting the villages around.  

Dharamshala, popularly known as the ‘Queen of the Hills’, ‘the Scotland of India’  is one of the main towns of Kangra valley having a population of about 8600. It is located in the backdrop of snow clad peaks of the Dhauladhar mountains about 18kms. northeast of Kangra town. The mountains enfold three sides of the town and the valley stretches beyond to the south. Known for its scenic beauty amidst high pine trees, tea gardens and other timber-yielding trees vying with one another for height, calmness and serenity, Dharamsala’s altitude varies between 1,250 meters (4,400 ft) and 2,000 meters (6,560ft).
