You're Here!

McLeod Ganj

Day 1

The place showcases the vibrant and distinct Tibetan culture, and you will be fascinated to see the splendid monasteries, prayer flags and wheels and the lamas.

Day to Lay Back

Dharamkot

Day 2

Just a half an hour hike ahead of McLeodGanj will take you to Dharamkot, a more rural and laid-back village that is a more peaceful accommodation alternative for budget travellers, especially popular among Israelis.
Itinerary Image
This sleepy hamlet of Dharamkot is a complete contrast to the Tibetan world that one experiences in McLeod Ganj. Trekking is one of the most popular activities this village offers and the place is a haven and a must-visit for backpackers and travellers.

My Choice to Stay

Zostel - Dharamkot ,Dharamkot

Day 1-2

Quite unbeatable at its price with it's crazy vibe is this hostel. What I truly love is their roof-top area! As soon as it gets a little dark, things heat up with a lot of conversations and songs here.

Another One!

Triund

Day 3

Triund is a lovely alpine meadow located just about ten kilometres from the bustling city centre of McLeodganj,perched right at the top of a ridge amidst the jaw-dropping views of the peaks of Dhauladhar Mountain and Kangra Valley gracing the two ends.
Itinerary Image
The first 5 kms of the Triund trek are simple and never fail to offer excellent panoramic views of the Dhauladhars along every bend of its trail. Thereon, the route gets steep and requires a sturdy walk. This stretch is popularly known as 22 curves because of the 22 sharp curves en route. The Triund trek will take at best four hours to complete. The trail itself isn’t too grueling, even for the unseasoned trekker.

Go Further!

Day 4

Getting to the Triund valley is an achievement in itself. But the more adventurous can try hiking further to the Kareri Lake, where you’ll come across rock-cut caves to explore, Indrahar Pass, Minkiani Pass and all the way to Kuarsi Pass and Mani-Mahesh.

Try out Night Camping
Night camping at Triund top will be one of the best camping experiences you will ever have. Sleep underneath the blanket of a starry sky and admire the inky blue sky!
