SIMPLE, CLEAN "HOMESTAY"

About Dharamshala & Mcleodganj

Dharamshala is situated in the Northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. It lies on a spur of the Dhauladhar range in the Pir Panjal region of the Outer Himalayas; and commands majestic views of the mighty Dhauladhar ranges above, and the Kangra Valley below. Dhauladhar means "white ridge" and this breathtaking, snow-capped range rises out of the Kangra Valley to a height of 5,200 meters (17,000 feet).The Kangra Valley is a wide, fertile plain, crisscrossed by low hills.

Mcleodganj is the official home of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Western and Indian tourists and scholars come here to see the rebirth of an ancient and fascinating civilization. The high altitude and cool weather contribute physically to the re-creation of the original Tibetan environment. Dharamsala pulsates with the sights and sounds of old Tibet. Though certainly more modern, life is basically Tibetan in character. Shops strung out along the narrow streets of Mcleodganj sell traditional Tibetan arts and handicrafts and the aroma of Tibetan dishes lingers in the air.

The Tsuglagkhang Temple is the most renowned Buddhist monument in McLeodganj. There are three magnificent images of Buddha, including a gilded statue of Shakyamuni, statues of Valokitesvara and Padamasambhava. The Namgyal Monastery was founded by the Third Dalai Lama, and serves the Dalai Lamas exclusively. A unique feature of this monastery is its diversity of practice. Namgyal monks perform prayers and rituals of all the major schools of Tibetan Buddhism.

Just 4-kms from Dharamsala and 10kms from Mcleodganj is, Norbulinka which was established to preserve and teach the ancient Tibetan arts. The shady paths, wooden bridges, small streams tiny water falls make this place look like heaven. Here one can watch the wooden carvings and the tangka paintings, golsithing and embroidery being done. The nunnery close to the institute is a place where women are taught the advanced levels of Buddhist philosophy.

 

 

“Friendly, clean and beautiful!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 28 August 2014 This review is very late, but I just had to write this because my stay at McLeodganj Homestay was just so fabulous. I stayed here for two nights and the hosts Nisha Aunty and her son Saahil were ever so helpful. Right from booking the homestay, everything went so smoothly that I didn't have anything to worry during my trip. The Saris have a beautiful house with a small cafe and a wonderful small nursery. The house looks beautiful when lit up at night. The room was decent and clean. There was a small water issue one day but they were prompt to solve it. I fell ill on the second day and they were very helpful at that time. A wonderful place to stay while in McLeodganj (though it is little walk uphill from the main town).

“Serenity, kindness and one heck of a view” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago My sister and I recently visited McLeod Ganj and had to good fortune to have stayed with the very gracious Sarin family at the Flourishing Flora homestay. For us, this place had great appeal; simple, clean and cozy lodgings nestled mountainside on Dharamkot Road, we enjoyed the walk to and from the town square. The Sarin brothers were extremely courteous and helpful, while their mother Nisha's cooking was delicious! It was delightful to sit in the little outdoor dining area and take in the view of the mountains amid the flowers and plants dotted about the property. I found the location a calm respite from the bustling town square - and the nightly performances at TIPA just up the road provided a pleasant soundtrack for our adventure! :-) Megan H
