Destination has been decided, plans have been charted out and you are all ready to go. To make your travel smoother, these few tips and guidelines have been provided.


  • As Mcleodganj is a hill-station, a drop in the temperature might hamper your travelling plan. Avoid it by packing your warm clothes and enjoy as much time as your body permits in the misty mountain town.
  • Once you witness Little Lhasa, as it is fondly known, with its melting pot of the cultures, dances, architecture of the Tibetan settlement, you will surely have a strong urge to frame these memories. So, don't forget your camera!
  • If knowledge for Buddhist culture is the driving force to your visit to Mcleodganj, check out the events where Tibetan culture is best reflected and coincide your vacation with it.
  • Going for trekking is a great option to rejuvenate the body with fresh mountain air. Don't forget your trekking shoes and essential gears to minimise any risk in the hill trails.
  • The essence of this vibrant hill-station can be best enjoyed by mingling with the lanes, the monasteries and the markets in the most engaging way possible. So, start walking and start exploring.


  • All bookings of anything related to your travel has to be confirmed at least 2 days in advance to avoid any unwanted hassles.
  • If you are travelling by your own vehicle, check the condition of the vehicle to make sure your trip plan is not interrupted. Servicing your vehicle properly before hitting the road is a must.
  • Many people take taxis from Majnu Ka Tila in Delhi. If you are also taking one, do check whether the license is given by the state of Himachal Pradesh.
  • Most hotels have parking facilities for its guests. Check with your hotel about this facility before travelling.
  • Save all the emergency numbers and if you are on medication, carry your prescribed medicine for the duration of your stay. Pack your first-aid kit also.
