The political centre of Tibet's Government in exile, this hill-station gains its tranquillity from the strong Buddhist influences on its culture and lifestyle. Often seen as a retreat away from the madness of city life, Mcleodganj (Macleodganj) (Macleodganj) offers the bounty of nature in all its splendour to its visitors. A popular trekking destination, it sees tourists from all across the globe.


This quiet, secluded hill station rose to fame in 1959, when the Indian Government offered the 14th Dalai Lama to set up his Tibetan Government in Exile after a failed revolution. Ever since, this town has seen an influx of historians and visitors, offering them a chance to explore the vivid culture and history of Tibet. The Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts also is a major attraction for tourists, especially during its annual festival during May. The home of Dalai Lama and the most prominent monastery in the region, Namgyal Monastery is a beautiful complex with an aura of soothing peace and spiritual calm. Trekkers throng to Mcleodganj (Macleodganj) (Macleodganj) for some exciting and adventurous hill trails and to see the magnificent Bhagsunag waterfalls. A foodie haven, Mcleodganj (Macleodganj) is renowned for its Tibetan cuisine, as well as other continental menus, some of the restaurants being run by monks themselves.


Every corner of the town is home to a plethora of shops selling anything and everything. From small trinkets, silver jewellery to Tibetan souvenirs, you name it and they have it. Colourful, enthralling and exciting, the markets in Mcleodganj (Macleodganj) will surprise you and how. Enveloped in the soft aroma of tibetan incense sticks and soothing tibetan music, the market is all yours to explore. The kiosks are crowded with authentic Tibetan dresses, handicrafts, prayers items and melodious Tibetan music cds. You definitely will not be going empty handed. Take back earrings, pendants, tee shirts, bags and wall hangings with prayer lines and pious Tibetan prayer symbols.


The only tip for all you shoppers is, pick anything and everything that catches your fancy. Brush up your bargaining skills and you will have no complaints. With the prices a little high for tourists, haggling a little would do the trick.
