About Mcleodganj Tourism (Dharamshala)

Mcleodganj in Himachal offers everything a traveller can ask from the Himalayas: spirituality, serenity, and sublimity. A winding road through the Pine tree tunnels on the Dhauladhar mountains leads travellers to Mcleodganj, which is located 10 kilometers north of Dharamshala. Essentially a hilly suburb of Dharamshala, Mcleodganj retains a colonial charm while emanating Tibetan vibes.

Sightseeing in Mcleodganj

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. Bhagsunath Temple and St. John in the Wilderness Church are some of 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 and Dal Lake to take in nature’s best offerings.

Trekking Tours in Mcleodganj

The Dhauladhar range in Dharamshala is a favourite spot for nature lovers and adventure enthusiasts. Triund Trek and Kareri Lake Trek are ideal for beginners and nature lovers. It takes about 6 hours to trek from Mcleodganj to Triund top. On the other hand, Indrahar Pass Trek allows perfect thrills for mountain dwellers.

Camping in Mcleodganj

Tourists can enjoy camping at several spots in the town of Mcelodganj. Triund and Upper Dharamkot are the most popular spots for overnight camping. Adventure lovers can also pitch their own tent at Kareri Lake and on the route to Indrahar Pass. Several budget hotels in Mcleodganj also provide camping in their premises at nominal rates.

Paragliding in Mcleodganj

Paragliding take off point in Dharamshala is located on the Khaniyara Road near the Indrunag Temple. Tourists can pre-book their flights from several operators at the main market in Mcleodganj. For a longer flight and better views, tourists can plan a day trip to Bir Billing that is one of the best places for paragliding in India. It may cost around 3000 per person for a 20-minute flight.

Shopping in Mcleodganj

Travellers can explore the main market in Mcleodganj that is lined with make-shift stalls, Tibetan cafes, and souvenir shops. From woolens to jewelry and from gemstones to prayer beads, tourists can bargain for a range of items sold at the market. Another option is to visit Mini Market at the Main Chowk in Mcelodganj.

    Our travel experience was very good with Travel Vichar. Ms, Shilpa (from travel vichar) arranged itinerary very well. Quality of rooms and services of hotel Clarks Inn Suites in Kangra and Moonglade in Dalhausi was great. Hotel at Kangra (Clarks Inn Suits) was awesome. Food ambiance and manageme
    nt are really good Clarks Inn Suites was the best among all the three hotels. Driver, Mr. Kewal Kumar was nice person and his driving skill is very good. Travel Agent Ms. Shilpa is very nice and supported where need. But the hotel in McLeodganj, Sky Bhagsu was not good. It is like a guest house not like a 3 star hotel. Rooms are very small just like stores in houses. Even basic amenities are not available in rooms. Thanks to Ms. Shilpa, Travel Vichar and Travel Triangle for great experience.

    The staff at Hotel in Manali lodge where we were going to have special honeymoon candlelight dinner was rude serving us candlelight dinner. The videos shown to me of candlelight dinner were different than what they given us in actual. There was mismatch in itinerary provided to cab driver and me.
    Also check-in/check-out scheduled listed on Travel Triangle and actual check-in/check-out date for Hotel in Dharmashala were incorrect due to some technical glitch which resulted me in paying out of my pocket. Despite all these issues we were able to enjoy the trip but I was expecting more smoother experience.

    Service for the trip was good overall. Quick response from agent to attend any issue. However , the hotels were changed last minute leaving no room for options to change. Felt that quoted price didn't match with the standard of hotels provided to us( hotels with small rooms/uncozy locations with no
    outdoor view.Few Hotels provided were upto standard). Visit to Rohtang and adventures of Kullu valley made our trip pleasant and joyful. Cab driver was helpful and polite always.
