Triund trek was long over due and I finally decided to pack my bag and proceed to mountains (No, mountains were not calling). I started my journey from Delhi on October 13, 2017 around 7 pm and reached Dharamshala next morning around 7:30 am. Since I was planning this from a long time, I had booked my bus tickets in advance. I would recommend everyone to book their tickets atleast a week before if you are travelling during peak seasons.
Day 1- As soon as we reached Dharamshala, we took a cab to Mcleodganj which costed around INR 200. Since we were hungry, we decided to have breakfast at a cafe called “Carpe Diem” which serves excellent breakfast and coffee. The first day in Mcleodganj was spent leisurely by exploring the streets which are filled with Tibetan artefacts and books, silver jewellery, hand-knitted wollen socks, caps etc. After shopping some stuff, we went to The Namgyal Monastery- it is a must visit place. As soon as you enter the temple complex, you will feel calm and happy (atleast I felt). I was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of The Dalai Lama :)
