Welcome to Ghoomakad!
Overlooking the beautiful, snow-capped Dhauladhar, is village Rakkar, in Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh. Although it’s just a while from the twin destinations of Dharamshala and Mcleodganj, the village has an old-world charm and tranquillity to it. Here, you get the best of both worlds. And it is here, where Ghoomakad is based.
The vision behind setting up the place was to provide temporary settlement to all such fellow wanderers – like-minded people, who could benefit from the interactions and the network, simultaneously, contributing toward the local community.
So far, many technology workers – Web developers, designers, coders, ML & AI professionals have visited this place, used it as their co-working space to create and collaborate, in a creative environment. The new-found freedom that they get here as compared to the cubicles of the urban offices, has had a very positive impact on their lives in general, and work in particular.

Basically, you can't complain. And of course, scenic beauty nearby is just mesmerising. Taxi is available at your steps to roam about places in Dharamshala and MacLeodganj (20 min-1 hr ride). "
