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.

    • Trip to Dharamshala

      Hotel in Dharamshala (Sai Taj Grand) was excellent with very polite staff. But the hotel in Dalhousie (Satyadev Grand) was horrible. The entrance and ambience was so poor that you wouldn't like to stay in the hotel. The staff was rude too and I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. The cabs AC wasn't working and hence it was too hot in Haryana and Punjab when we were traveling from Delhi towards Dharamshala. The agent (Guruji Travels) refused to accept its AC is ill functioning. The driver (Vikas Kumar) was a very polite guy. One of the best drivers that I have ever travelled with. He needs all the desired appraisals from his company. Guruji Travels needs to be o be more customer centric as they are in service industry. Should give a heed to customers complaints and should check the hotels that they are giving to their customers. Himanshu from Travel Triangle was very helpful in listening to our complaints.

      Hotel Raja’s palace of Dharamshala was pretty good but Hotel Dalhousie grand provided the worst hospitality one could ever give ... even for a cup of tea they had several excuses... next time kindly don’t provide hotel Dalhousie grand to any tourist in order to avoid bad reviews. Cab driver was good ... work more speak less
