The Tibetan Children’s Village -Thousands of children flee Tibet each year and arrive in McLeod Ganj, often without their parents. The Tibetan Children’s Village is where they live and study, along with other Tibetan children whose Indian-resident parents send them to TCV to receive a Tibetan education.
The children–over 3,000 of them–are housed in numerous dormitories and small apartment complexes near Dal Lake. They attend classes in Tibetan language, literature, history, science, math, English and the performing and visual arts. Visitors are welcome to observe classes and long-term volunteers are sometimes accepted to help with the many needs of the children.
The Norbulingka Institute - located about 15 km from McLeod Ganj and is well worth the effort to get there by taxi or local bus. Developed by the Dalai Lama as a center for the continuation and training of traditional Tibetan arts and crafts, the ground alone are testament to the Tibetan’s architectural and artistic skill. A number of buildings, all ornately decorated cover several acres complete with a koi pond, bridges and gardens.
Norbulingka also has a restaurant and a guesthouse on the grounds, and, if you happen to find someone who will show you, an apartment that is one of the Dalai Lama’s residences.
Dal Lake - A small mid altitude lake (1,775 m above sea level) near of a very beautiful village "Tota Rani".The lake is surrounded by deodar trees and is considered as a sacred spot as there is small Shiva mandir (shrine) on its bank. There are different kinds of fish that live in this lake. This lake has greenish water.
Bhagsunath Temple - a medieval temple 3 kms east of Mcleodganj.The ambience of the temple is tranquil and reposed, with plentiful pools around, considered sacred by the Hindu devotees.
Bhagsu Waterfall is situated at Bhagsu . It lies behind the famous Bhagsunath Temple. During monsoons the fall turns into a glorious 30 ft cascade. The mountain side of the fall is decorated with stylish slate graffiti. It is an ideal spot for picnics and recreation.
