Escaping the ordinary life and living it the way I always dream of is exactly what travel helps me do. It lets me go places, meet people, make new friends, and makes me happier than I usually am. And so, to experience all it at once I stepped into my sporty shoe, and decided to explore Mcleodganj with my friend on a thrilling weekend getaway.
This was my first of its kind friends trip to McLeodganj, and so I was looking for someone to plan it for me. My friend suggested me to talk to TravelTriangle the moment she knew about the trip. From their planning to their booking process, everything happened so smoothly that I was completely smitten.

Here’s everything we did on our friends trip to Mcleodganj!
Day 1: Arriving Mcleodganj and trekking to Bhagsunag Temple
Upon reaching Mcleodganj around 10 in the morning, we checked into our hotel, and I must say that we were in luck because we got a room that offered the most beautiful view. Totally impressed with the hospitality and amenities, we took some to relax and refresh ourselves.
The time passed so soon, that in the next moment we were tying our shoes to begin the most adventurous part of our trip. All of us began our trek to the Bhagsunag Temple, which was my first ever trek experience. The stunning views from the top were awe-inspiring and I was completely amazed. We not only admired the waterfalls, but even got the chance to take a dip in the chilled water.
Day 2: Enjoying the breathtaking beauty from a height of 3000 feet
The weather in McLeodganj during our whole trip was pleasant and soothing. Though, it was also raining at times. We began the morning of the second day of the trip on a refreshing note by resuming to trekking while it was drizzling.
There is no denying that trekking is one of the best things to do on a friends trip to McLeodganj. The whole experience was super thrilling and rejuvenating. We also spotted a few animals around on our way to the top.
It took some three to four hours to reach at the top of the mountain from where the world looked like a tiny beautiful ball. It felt like we were in heaven, and away from the ordinary world we knew. Standing on a mountain cliff, which was at a height of 3000 feet was no less than a victory for me.
While we admired the mesmerizing view, all of us also tantalized our taste buds with the scrumptious food prepared right there on the hill. Later in the night, we shook our leg on different tunes and played innumerable games with the other travelers.
Day 3: Bidding farewell to the hills
On the third day, we woke up to a blanket of fog, which was spread all around us and we could barely see anything. Without wasting any more time, all of us decided to come down back to the hotel. After freshening up and having a hearty lunch, we boarded the bus back to Delhi.
