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.

“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

Me and my family were planning our holidays from last one month , finally selected Mcleodganj Homestay through tripadvisor where travelers had given wonderful reviews..... (Sent on TripAdvisor) Yuga10 Mumbai, Maharashtra

“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
