If you're traveling to McLeod Ganj with family, we would suggest not to stay at Zostel because you have to hike up around 200 meters to reach Zostel since there is no direct road. But again, the location is amazing - on the hill top close to nature and peaceful with no chaos of the city.After resting for a while, we trailed around the main market in evening. The food in McLeod Ganj is delicious, a lot of bakeries around and also don't forget to try some Tibetan food.
Tired from the exhausting bus travel and all day long exploration, we reached Zostel, Dharamkot, near Heena Cafe by taking a cab for ₹ 200 for 4 people. This place accomodated such a young and fresh vibe and we booked 4 beds in the dormitory @ ₹500 per bed.The place was such a delight for the body and the soul.
