McLeod Ganj is the perfect weekend destination if you are living in NCR, Punjab, Haryana or any place close to Himachal Pradesh. Since Delhi is quite a warmer place in India during summers and monsoon, trip to McLeod Ganj is perfect to chill and relax your head.
We started our day with new home of Dalai Lama McLeod Ganj. This is the place where many Tibetan refugees have been given a place to live. If you are planning a 1 week trip, you can club McLeod Ganj with Bir and Dalhousie just like we did. Or else you can cover these beautiful places on weekends or long weekends if you live close to Himachal Pradesh or in Delhi.
As I told you about our trip to Dalhousie in my previous blogpost and how we clubbed these lovely places in Himachal Pradesh making an ultimate one week trip plan that was full of romance, adventure, fun, food, and meeting a lot of crazy travelers like us on the way.
Next day, early morning we took a private bus from Dalhousie to Dharamshala and it took around 3 hours and then changed another bus from Dharamshala to McLeod Ganj which took around 30mins. Since our stay was at Zostel, Upper Dharamkot and we had luggage too, we took a cab from McLeod Ganj to Zostel parking area and then hiked up for 200 meters.
