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.

Fabulous stay! We had a wonderful stay at this cozy B&B. The Sarins were always very helpful and gracious. The breakfasts were great every morning, served hot and at whatever time was comfortable for us (usually around 10am as we were traveling with 3 teenagers). We all loved sitting on the patio each morning in the sun. The air was cold in February but the rooms had space heaters (for use from 8pm to 8am for an extra 100Rp per night) and extra blankets. We had roast chicken in front of a wood fire one evening and would have eaten more evening meals at the home stay had the evening temps been a little warmer. Happily, there are no shortage of great restaurants in Mcleodganj. The wifi was slow but reception was good. The walk to town took only about 10 minutes and was quiet, scenic and very enjoyable (though steep) and we did it several times each day. We were in Mcleodganj for a week and still didn't have time to explore all the local sites, restaurants and shopping. Flourishing Flora was a perfect place for our family and we would highly recommend it to others who are looking for a clean, comfortable, well located authentically Indian experience.

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
