The closest metro station is Vidhan Sabha on the yellow line. Get down from the Vidhan Sabha station and you'll see E-rickshaws lined up outside who take you to Majnu ka Tila for a fare of Rs.10 for each person.
If you've got a group of 3-4 friends, you can even opt for a personal auto which costs Rs. 40 for the same. The only difference is that the personal auto will drop you exactly in front of the entrance and the E-rickshaw drops you on the opposite road.
So, you have to cross an overhead bridge to get to Majnu ka Tila when you take a E-rickshaw.

What I liked about the place
To be frank, when I got off the E-rickshaw on my first visit to the place, I was under the impression that I have made a wrong decision. The area didn't look that good or hygienic to me.
This is probably like one of those scenarios when the place looks better on Instagram than in real life. But upon entering the lane, it is quite better and feels safe too.
Safety has become such an important factor and 'men gawking at you' has almost become a regular thing now. But Majnu ka Tila made me forget that there are men around. Feels like a very safe environment.
Best shop to get first-copy of Vans & other branded shoes
There are stores which have the imported first-copy of branded shoes which are of great quality. Sometimes you can't even make out that it's not original.
One such shop, in which I found the best quality of shoes is of the name Lhamo Impex.

History & Facts About Majnu Ka Tila
Earlier, this region was resided by Tibetan refugees who stayed near the Indo-Chinese border. They had to move to the camps near the Yamuna river because of the Sino-Indian war of 1962.
This area has now become a hangout spot for college kids and tourists alike. It has a great variety of cute little cafes and restaurants which offer authentic Tibetan and Bhutanese cuisine.
Compared to the mainstream areas like Connaught Place, the food at these cafes are modestly priced. I went to the Ama Cafe and there's a detailed review on it coming up ahead in this post below.
It is quite fascinating that every guesthouse in Majnu Ka Tila is named after the family or monastery that runs them. You will see many guest houses with names such as Dolma House and Gangchen House.
