Checking in your hotel/resort. Once freshen up, head towards some of the cafes serving authentic Tibetian cuisine. Soak in the pleasant atmosphere and enjoy your meal. Post that, head towards the famous Dalai Lama Temple.
Walking some distance on Temple road will take you to the Dalai Lama Temple. This is the residence of Dalai Lama, when he is not traveling. You will be amazed by the peaceful ambiance here. This is a must visit attraction in McLeod Ganj Itinerary.
By 4 pm, the monks start with a debate which is a unique attraction. Two monks debate against each-other. 1 monk will be sitting and the other monk will be asking him questions. While doing so, the challenging monk will clap and open the question for debate. Below mentioned is a captured moment.
You can also visit the close-by Tibetian museum to comprehend the atrocities Tibetian folks have suffered. Note the time so that you can adjust accordingly.
While returning, you can explore the Tibetian market and enjoy a peaceful evening at some of the roadside cafes. Sip a Ginger Lemon Honey tea as you watch the monks passing by.
At night, you can watch a Tibetian movie taking you through the cultural history of Tibetians. These movies are screened at many places. Try to find out some free screenings in selected cafes. End your Day 1 of Mcleodganj Itinerary by indulging in scrumptious Tibetian cuisine
1. Meditate at Tushita:
Start your day 2 of McLeod Ganj Itinerary by visiting Tushita meditation center. Tushita Meditation Center is situated in Dharamkot, not far from McLeod Ganj. The ambiance of this meditation center will leave you astonished. Attend a free guided meditation session. The session starts with Buddhism philosophy and after meditation, ends with a question-answer session. Everyday, the guided meditation session starts at 9:30 AM sharp. Make it a point to reach there in time or else the doors will close.
After meditation, spend some time at the center as the wind creates music in the dense surrounding forest. For detailed information about various sessions, visit Tushita Website
2. Bhagsu Waterfalls:
Continue your McLeod Ganj Itinerary by proceeding towards Bhagsu Waterfall. You can also visit the Bhagsunath Temple. The waterfall is not more than 2-3 KMs from McLeod Ganj. When you reach the waterfall, there is a small pond where you can spend some time. If time permits, ask for the route which will take you above the waterfall. As you trek further, you can also take a detour and reach Shiva Cafe. Overlooking the valley, this cafe will provide you a site to relax after climbing the ascent.
It would be evening when you reach back to Mcleodganj. Consider visiting a valley facing cafe where you can savor lip-smacking pizzas. After the sun sets, you might want to retire early to bed because next day will be a tiring one. End your Day 2 of Mcleodganj Itinerary by admiring a marvelous sunset.
Without visiting Triund, your McLeod Ganj Itinerary wouldn’t be very rewarding. Triund is the Jewel of McLeod Ganj. The snow-clad mountains that you might have seen while relaxing at those cafes, will be much closer when you reach the Triund camping site. Trust me, if you don’t complete this 3 hours trek, McLeod Ganj visit is incomplete.
Pack your bags for a return trip back Home!!
Wish you a wonderful Journey
