About McLeodganj in Dharamshala

What makes a travel destination worth visiting? From cultural encounters to romantic escapades, Mcleodganj in Himachal Pradesh checks out all the requisite a traveller can ask for. A winding road through the Pine tree tunnels on the Dhauladhar mountains leads travellers to Mcleodganj, which is located 10 kilometers north of Dharamsala. Essentially a hilly suburb of Dharamshala, Mcleodganj retains a colonial charm while emanating Tibetan vibes.

Also known as Little Lhasa or Dhasa, Mcleodganj is a spiritual paradise where Buddhism prevails from lifestyle to cuisine. It is the seat of Tibetan government-in-exile and the residence of the 14th Dalai Lama. Honeymooners, hipsters, volunteers, mountaineers, filmmakers, and families visit this hill station to seek their definition of nirvana. Triund Hill, Tibetan Museum, Kalachakra Temple, Bhagsu Waterfall and Temple, St. John in the Wilderness, and Dal Lake are some the popular places to visit in Mcleodganj.

Most Mcleodganj tourism packages offer a visit to attractions in Dharamsala and the Kangra Valley. A visit to Tsuglhakhang Complex, better known as the Dalai Lama Temple, is mandatory for those looking for a glimpse of Buddhism and Tibet. Once you’ve bow before Buddha, shop for souvenirs and trinkets sold by local vendors along the temple road and sample mouth-watering momos. Plan an excursion to the well-known Triund Hill, the Bhagsu Falls, and Dal Lake to take in nature’s best offerings.

Be it winter or summer, the morning sun brings a river of monks and vendors in the main market while night goes out with a panoramic view of the Kangra Valley below. While the atmospheric Tibetan cafes allow great opportunity to strike a conversation with fellow travellers, there are several view points where one can admire the picturesque landscape.
