Dharamkot is a
village adjoining McLeod Ganj that oozes sparkling sceneries. Just three
kilometres to the north of McLeod Ganj, forests of towering pines and rhododendrons
welcome you to experience bliss first-hand. Not far from Dal Lake, the
festival-fair organized every year adds to the vividness of Dharamkot. More
spellbinding views of the Dhauladhar range await you, and a spiritual retreat
at one of the several dedicated centres is just a step away.
only a stone’s throw away, the village of Dharamkot is in complete contrast to
the Tibetan realms of McLeod Ganj. Trek to the villages at Naddi and Triund,
which are right around the bend, and delve into the offerings of bountiful
nature. A few cafes en route to Dharamkot sees the crowd dwindling, and peace
is on the offing at throwaway prices.
One of the most popular things to do
among hikers is to rent a room in relatively noiseless Dharamkot and travel
back and forth to McLeod Ganj—with the goal being solitude. Getting one’s own
stock of alcohol from a kilometre away and chilling in the cafes is another one
of travellers’ favourites.
