About

The Dharamshala Network, AirJaldi’s first network, began as an initiative to cross-connect local offices and institutional campuses and was one of the first wireless broadband networks in India.  

Dharamshala, a popular domestic and international tourist destination, is known for its natural beauty and for being the center of the Tibetan community in exile and its spiritual leader, the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet.  It is situated in the Kangra valley at the foothills of the Dhauladhar mountains range. Very high rainfall, winds, and foggy days at its upper reaches make this network a challenging one, in particular at the height of the monsoon season and during the cold winter months.
