Romance with Himachal is not yet over. Evening is quite chilly in the third week of November. McLeodganj, being on the top of the hill is colder than Dharamshala. Mcleodganj has its own charm. From Thangkas to prayer wheels, jewelleries, incense sticks, Tibetan art and crafts, woollen garments, shawls made up of yak wool, everything is available in McLeodganj market. It is better to buy these Tibetan stuffs from McLeodganj as in Dharamshala where we later moved, could not find any such beautiful items.
Next day after reaching here, we strolled in the market and got hold of some books on Tibetan folklores, festival and folk culture, Tibetan incense sticks made of medicinal herbs and Tibetan shawl made up of yak wool and some other knick-knack. We also looked into the open stalls of hawkers selling Tibetan jewellery, artefacts etc and I must admit they are really tempting. After a quick exploration of the shops, we were heading towards the hotel but stopped by a roadside open space. The sun was ready to set, the misty mountains all around bidding adieu.
