    Hey, I am an Indian Traveller, Trekker and Blogger. I did the trek 4 months ago. The trek was wonderful and I felt like I was in heaven with snowy mountains. It was overall beautiful. A must-visit place.

    Great view point - but I’d hesitate to make the trip up there if you weren’t using it as the starting point for a trek/hike. We did a gentle 8km around the mountain and back down into Bhagsu and McLeodGanj. The views from Naddi are great, no doubt, but for me it’s a starting point rather than a destination in itself.

    Just between the two main roads in Mcleaod Ganj market area ,so convenient to eneter into this small temple.
    Stairs are very narrow,climb up out onto the rooftop and up to see the statue in the actual temple.
    Colourful stupa ground floor.

    A small temple of lord Shiva situated at Mcleodgunj. A clean pool situated adjacent of temple you can bath there. There is a Waterfall backside of temple in the name of Bhagsunag. Both are tourist attraction of Mcleodgunj.

    Whilst in McCleod Ganj we visited the monastery, a vast ecosystem. When you get to the security gate you can take the stairs or ask for directions to a lift that takes you to the top floor. Here you will witness newly ordained monks together with those who have been praying for many decades: a unique and truly special place to visit. There is also temple in the grounds which would be peaceful if it wasn’t for the many tourists yapping rather than observing silence! There is a big market outside the complex so make sure you pass through but remember to bargain firmly to counter rip off tourist pricing.

    Coming here, it is interesting to witness the pilgrims going about their prayers. The site is expansive enough with many side temples and they are beautiful decorated with gorgeous Thangka paintings. There is also a lovely kora walk surrounding the complex which is good if you fancy a nice hilly stroll with a peaceful vibe!

    An 8.5km senic walk from McLeod Ganj takes you to the uniquely beautiful temple. Set in delightful surroundings in the foothills of the Dhauladhar Range.
