The 207 crore project has 10 towers and two stations and covers the distance in just five minutes. The top station of the ropeway is in front of the Dalai Lama Temple in McLeod Ganj. The ropeway is constructed using monocable detachable gondola technology. The fare is fixed at Rs 300 per person for a one-way trip and Rs 500 per person for a round trip.

You may have visited and attended matches in many stadiums across India, but none would be like witnessing a match at the HPCA stadium in Dharamshala which is situated at an altitude of 1457m, commanding panoramic views of snowclad mountains.

Things to do in McLeod Ganj

Bhagsu waterfalls

A post shared by Lokesh (@indianinvidesh)

One of the most popular tourist destinations in McLeod Ganj is the Bhagsu Waterfall. After a bit of a hike that takes you to the waterfall, you get to witness the 20m plunge in all its glory which makes it more than worth it. However, remember that it gets very crowded here because of the tourist rush.

P.S. When in Bhagsu, don’t forget to try the Bhagsu cake from any of the confectionary or grocery stores there. It is unlike anything you’ve tried before.

Dharamkot

A post shared by The Unmad (@theunmad)

A few kms ahead of McLeod Ganj is the abode of Dharamkot where you will find yoga classes, amazing bakeries, and cafes which will make you want to spend the day there, along with, of course, nature’s bounty. It’s a fantastic place to stay in if you want to forego the rush of McLeod Ganj and spend some time hiking away in the mountains.

Dal Lake

A post shared by traveller (@travel_addict_photography)

McLeod Ganj, too, has a Dal Lake which is guarded by a Shiva temple which is of great religious importance to the locals. The quiet, albeit small lake, is surrounded by deodar trees and is a sight worth witnessing.

Dalai Lama Temple 

A post shared by 🌟𝓐𝓵𝓲𝓼𝓱𝓪🌸 (@thatgirlfromhyderabad)

One of the major attractions here is the Dalai Lama Temple, also known as the Tsuglakhang Temple. It is also an important pilgrim spot for Buddhists as the Dalai Lama visits the temple twice or thrice every year to preach there. The temple complex has shops that sells ritual items and books, and is a place of meditation, quiet, and peace.
