On 22nd March morning I actually began my Dharamshala-Mcleodganj trip. Basically, McLeod Ganj is suburb of Dharamshala and 7 km away from dharamshala. Mcleodganj has many tourists places such as HH Dalai Lama Temple, Bhagsu Nag Temple and water fall, St. John in the Wilderness, Dal lake and Nadi view point. I rented a bike at McLeod ganj (Rs. 650 including petrol), off course one can explore McLeodGanj by walking. To begin with, I first visited to HH Dalai Lama Temple. This is basically monastery also known as Tsuglagkhang complex. Visitors can visit temple located within complex which is open to all. This complex also house Tibetan Museum which displays Tibetan history and freedom struggle. From here, I rode to Bhagsu nath Temple which 3km away from mcleodganj. Bhagsu nath is lord Shiva temple and sacred deity of Gorkha Rifles which was initially stationed at dharamshala cantonment (Forsyth ganj). Just behind the temple, there Bhagsu water fall, which is clearly visible from temple itself, but you need to climb a hill (approx 20 min). I spent there around 30 min. Climb few more steps and you will be at Shiva Cafe. This is ideal place for hangout. You should try out pasta or pizza at Shiva Cafe. Its awesome and delicious !!! if its raining, Maggie has no alternative, just unforgettable taste. But what makes Shiva cafe so special is its rock music and unbeatable scenic view.I spent around 1 hour there before heading to St John church. St.John in the Wilderness is a century old church,built in 1852, located 2 km away from McLeodganj. One can easily walk down to church as well (30 min), but in my case it was matter of 5 min as I was riding a bike. Adjacent to church, there is memorial of Lord Elgin who was Governor General of India during British era. From here you can head towards Dal lake and Naddi view point (I skipped it as lake was dried up).
Here McLeodganj checklist was completed (There is nothing much to do) , so I went to Dharamshala again (thanks to bike and shorter Jogiwara road), to visit Gyuto Monastery and Norbulingka Institute. Basically, these institutes fall outside the dharamshala ( 7 km , near Sidhbari), I went there only because of time availability. I returned to McLeodganj around 6 pm and started roaming around. McLeodganj market is very good to explore as there are various tibetan and indian shops of art and handicraft. It took around 2.5 hours just to explore whole market and off course it was worthful.
