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.

 

 

I was on a road trip and i'm traveler who likes to stay in homestays n hostels as i like to meet people . I believe great conversations take place when we meet new people . It totally surpassed my expectations . So i like places which are peaceful n away from noise n all the chaos of a city . This place is perfect . It is a 10 minute walk from mcleodganj mainsquare n on the road to dharmkot . Its away from all the chaos of town and very peaceful . You could simply enjoy your morning tea in peace with a amazing view of the mountains from the in house cafe . The walk to mcleodganj main square( centre of town ) is very photogenic n thus keep your cameras ready :p . Since its a homestay so please dont expect it to be a normal hotel . It is a family run and sahil the amazing guy handles the guest part . He was so caring about his guests that i noticed that he doesnt sleep unless his guests are back home and especially concerned regarding safety of women . The food was very well served and the rooms were very clean .this time i was in family room but next time i want to stay in the hut they have on the top floor . That room gives a breathtaking view . So if you get that room consider yourself lucky as the valley view is to die for . I prefer travelling like a local n meeting new people thus homestays gives you that experience were i made some amazing friends from across the globe . I loved the place so much that i stayed an extra night out there . Sahil n family has perfected the art to give experience of a homestay and services of a hotel . Also i missed out on the special roasted chicken that mrs. Sarin makes , make sure you dont miss it :( . Simply amazing . Thank you sahil n family uday b

“Loved staying at this home away from home” After a much exhilarating ride all the way from my hometown which is like about 1700 kilometers away from McLeod Ganj, we wanted a place to crash at which should to say be good enough to relax our butts. Our booking at Homestay was a 11th hour decision. It looked decent and cozy in the pictures. Reaching Homestay almost in the middle of the night, the owners from the very first minute made us feel that we were meeting a family we've known since ages and not some inn keepers and that we should feel at home. Sahil and Bhushan, the two lovely chaps who run this place have stories to tell, advises to share and are absolutely fantastic at cooking leaving you smacking your lips and if you are an Asian who doesn't mind getting the fingers messy, then it will be finger lickin' good :P Their mother will treat you with some good home cooked breakfast every morning that is nothing short of sumptuous and delicious. We stayed in one of their cottages that was appropriately small and cozy. The bathroom was clean when we came in and had a small geyser to suit to our needs for warm water to bathe with. You get a nice adequately spaced closet to keep your things in. The bed was comfortable and the chilly nights are saved by the soft quilts they give you. The cottage opened to a picturesque view of the valley and the Himalayas. You might want to sit outside your cottage in the morning with a hot cup of coffee in hand and enjoy the view and the brew. Overall, my stay was fantastic and would definitely recommend lodging here. TANAY M

I stayed here with a group second time. This is a private bungalow suitable for travelers who want to stay in homestay. This property is designed in excellent way that although being a homestay your privacy is maintained. Since each room having independent entrance and with a private bathrooms. The feel of the location IS SUCH THAT IT TAKES AWAY ALL THE MENTAL STRESS THAT IS THERE IN YOUR DAILY LIFE AND PRESENTS A PEACEFUL ATMOSPHERE DUE TO THE VIEW OF THE VALLEY AND THE PINE TREES THAT SURROUND YOU. On my arrival owners son sahil and kulbhushan welcomed us. And served delicious breakfast cooked by aunty Nisha . After having the breakfast we kept sitting on the wooden deck which is so nicely decorated with different plants and flowers, you never feel like leaving the table. Property is small with simplicity embedded and cleanliness is maintained very well. I never got to know that when did these 3 days went away. I will definitely come back.

“Comfortable, Value for money Homestay” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago 'McLeodganj Homestay' is located at a convenient spot; at a short distance from the Main Square and just before the TIPA. 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. Room Tip: The valley-facing room on the first floor is The Best Room!
