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.

 

 

“serenity” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 22 November 2012 "I was traveling alone to Mcleodganj from Shillong and was really unsure of how to get a comfortable and safe place to stay. I was so glad to come across Flourishing Flora through Tripadvisor, that i didnt have a second thought but called up Anil Sarin if I could be accommodated there. Luckily I was and when I reached this beautiful place I was completely mesmerized by the serenity of the place and the beauty of the surroundings. This homestay is infact the best here and the room that i chose was this wooden cabin and it was so so cozy and warm, very comfortable and makes you feel at home. If one is looking for a peaceful retreat, then this room is the best. The breakfast was awesome. One should not miss the banana pancakes. Dinner is superb and relishing. Last but not the least, the hosts were very hospitable. Each and every one of you, Anil, Nisha, Sahil and Bhushan, thank you so much for your warm hospitality. I indeed had the best stay and i do wish to come back someday and stay there another time." ( As Sent on Trip Advisor) ---monalisapyngrope, Shillong, India monalisapyngrope Shillong, India

With cozy comfortable rooms, breath-taking valley view, lip-smacking food and warm friendly service this is like a home away from home. Nothing extravagant but a wonderful basic comfortable and relaxing stay is what you can expect at The Flourishing Flora. Definitely recommended.

“Home away from home..” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile Piglet - "How do you spell love?" Pooh - "You don't spell love, you feel it." And that is precisely the vibe you get while staying with the delightful Sarin family. This was my second stay with them. I felt the warmth and welcome right from the moment I walked in. The room was very comfortable, beautifully located. The aalo paranthas at breakfast are to die for!!. For this a special mention of their wonderful chef. In a nutshell, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there and would definitely return. A note: While staying here don't miss the trek to Triund. Its a 7km, 4 hour tough trek but totally worth it. The view from the top is spectacular (have enclosed a couple of pics of the same) Tarun
