Watch debating monks


Visit the Tibetan monastery in McCleod Ganj and you will have the opportunity to watch monks practice debating.

This is very theatrical. By and large, one monk adopts a passive role sitting down another assertive standing up. As points are made arms are flung theatrically.

Good pair of shoes

by DaDrifter

Walking up a hill, walking down a hill and walking some more ... thats McLeod Ganj in a nutshell :) ... a comfortable pair of shoes is highly recommended.

Temperature tends to drop to near freezing point during the winter months. Heavy wollen clothing is required for the months of November through February.

Dharamshala also receives the highest rainfall in northern India (second highest in the country). The rainy months from July through September are best avoided.

Packing List

by wispofcloud

It can get cold up here, especially at night. However, if you arrive in high season, and come from a colder clime, then it should not bother you.

It does rain without warning here, and it rains throught the year. Londoners should feel right at home! :-) Malaria pills, diarrhoea pills, gastric medicine! Pretty standard stuff if you're coming to India from the developed world. If not, you're safe! Make sure you have a camera! There's too much beauty to not take home with you.

Bhagsu – Shiva temple & baths

by Willettsworld

About 2km east of McLeod Ganj is an ancient Hindu temple dedicated to Bhagsu Nag, the snake god, and to Lord Shiva. The temple dates back to the 16th century but legend states that the site dates back some 5,100 years. Beside the temple is a spring pool which has been turned into a sacred swimming pool and was being used by local Tibetan monks when I was there.
