Hell yeah, I am back from a weeklong vacation doing nothing but trekking in the hills around McLeod Ganj in Himachal Pradesh and I’ve never felt so alive. If I have to describe how amazing this place is, I won’t be doing justice so I’ll let my pictures do the talking.
Bhagsunag Falls is just 10 minutes from McLeod Ganj Market
Bhagsunag Falls: Some hippies told me that if I hike twenty minutes more from the fall, there is a cafe called the Shiva Cafe where you will get kick ass herb. Unfortunately i don't do the herb. Thought some of you might wanna know.
The way up to Triund.
This place is located around 90 minutes before Triund. There is a stall here and its suppose to be a tea stall but you will find possibly everything, from tea and biscuit to soft drinks, beer, rum, vodka, sunscreen and so on.
Triund: The view, the fresh air and the serenity was worth the trek. A joint and some Pink Floyd would make the whole experience even more memorable.
The view from my hotel balcony. The hotel was freaking cheap. Just Rs. 550 for a night with hot shower.
What did I learn from this Trip:
- Never Drink the beer and vodka which you've brought to celebrate at the top of the peak before reaching the peak. It will mess up your body.
- Drink the local wine. Its just Rs 200 for a bottle and it is strong enough to keep two guys buzzing.
