What To Do in Dharamsala : Your Complete 5-day Dharamsala and McLeod Ganj Itinerary

Crossworld Holidays

When you think of a break from your daily routine, the first thing that comes to your mind is a vacation amidst the mountains. India is blessed with a number of hill stations which provide picturesque views all around. the weather in these places is simply stunning and they make for great short trips. Himachal Pradesh is one state in India which is home to some of the most popular hill stations visited by tourists all year round. While places like Shimla and Manali are hugely famous and thronged by tourists every year, there are others that are not very commercial and mostly attract backpackers and offbeat travelers looking for a unique and pleasant experience away from the crowds. One such place is Dharamsala. Known for its Tibetan settlement and the monastery where His Holiness The Dalai lama resides, Dharamsala is divided into two parts – lower Dharamsala and upper Dharamsala which is called Mcleod Ganj. Together, they make the best destination for a 5-day vacation. Here is a complete 5-day itinerary for those wishing to explore this beautiful and rejuvenating hill station in Himachal Pradesh.

Himachal Group Tours From Mumbai

Day 1

Do not be on your urban time here. Understand that the point of taking a trip to Dharamsala is to relax and rejuvenate. Start your trip at Mcleod Ganj. Check in to your hotel and rest for a while before heading out. Visit one of the many cafes here (Tibetan Mandala Cafe on Monastery road is a good choice), sip some coffee, make acquaintance with some of the other travelers. Use this day to just get a feel of the ambiance of this wonderful hill station. Watch the light fade away and feel the air get cold as night approaches. End your day with a meal at Mc Lo, the hep restaurant on the main square.

Day 2

Today, start walking. Visit the famous Bhagsunag Falls which is about an hour’s walk from the main square. It also leads to the Bhagsunag temple which is worth a visit. Check out the trendy Shiva cafe nearby and spend some time enjoying the ambiance here. Come back to the main square and then head to the popular Naam Art Gallery in McLeod Ganj. The famous gallery has paintings by renowned artists Elsbeth Buschmann and AW Hallett. So popular is the work of these artists that the Himachal government too owns many of their paintings. Spend a couple of hours in this gallery before getting back to the market area. Walk around, sit at a cafe with a view and end the day on a relaxing note.

Day 3

Today, embark on a little trek to one of the best trekking delights of India. Yes, take the 3-hour trek to Triund in the morning. It is totally worth spending an entire day hanging around at Triund, watching the clouds cover up the mountains, witness a spectacular sunset. However, the best part of Triund is camping under the stars. You will see millions of stars including some shooting ones. The cold weather makes it an adventurous night stay in a tent. You can feed on paranthas and noodles at the local dhaba here. The night and the spectacular sunrise is something you will never forget.

Day 4

Have breakfast and come down to Mcleod ganj. After a hot water bath, head down to Lower Dharamsala. Check out the amazing Norbulingka Institute of Tibetan Culture. Known to provide education and training to Tibetans, the Institute is a great place to witness Tibetan culture as well as buy souvenirs like traditional clothes and art pieces. Check out the Losel Doll Museum which has the largest collection of Losel dolls in the world. You can also check out the HPCA cricket stadium which is located between the most picturesque surroundings. Get back to the main square and try out one of the several amazing Tibetan restaurants for dinner.

Day 5

And then finally, there is the Namgyal monastery which is also known as the Dalai Lama’s temple. After Dalai Lama fled Tibet, he established this monastery to carry out his Tibetan practices and rituals. The monastery today manages an elderly home and temple and is the home of the Dalai Lama. It is a great place to witness Tibetan prayer sessions and also the culture of this region. Spend as many hours as you can in the monastery on your last day in order to soak in the spiritual ambiance. It is this feeling that will stay with you forever and will make you want to come back to Dharamsala again and again.

The World’s Best Sunset Destinations

Crossworld Holidays Tours & Travels

Sunset has a magic beyond the scientific fact of the sun disappearing behind the horizon and the atmosphere playing up the colours as the earth turns. Memories, farewells and romance cloud your thoughts. And like romance, there’s more to it than just science and scattering air molecules.

A wedding planner friend was recently asked where to find the best sunset, a ‘sweet young thing’ wants to take his hopefully intended somewhere exotic to pop the question—backed by the best sunset in the world. I didn’t have to think too much about where I’d seen the best sunset—it was while sitting on the balcony of the Indiana Tea Rooms on Cottesloe Beach, Perth, Western Australia. The balcony opens out over the smooth bay and looks directly west, where my gaze was transfixed for an hour or two it took for the colour and light show to finish, and for our supply of mint juleps to run out.

Just down the coast in Broome, I experienced one of my other top five sunsets, riding a camel along Cable Beach. The final suggestion I wanted to throw at our sweet young thing was Kota Kinabalu, in Sabah, where you have Mount Kinabalu looming in a myriad of striped colours on one side, and the paradisiacal Tunku Abdul Rahman National Parkislands, in their bright blue sea, on the other. These sunsets were almost magic for their beauty, and like love is more than a chemical reaction, these sunsets were more than just pretty views, they felt like perfect moments, an idea echoed by a friend who was able to write pages about his own favourites from his travels round Australia.

Further research uncovered recommendations for beaches and islands around Phuket, and a story about someone watching the sunset from the deck of their boat floating in the Andaman Sea. The Grand Canyon also got a good many mentions. Apparently, watching the rays of light sweep across the layers of the canyon from the west rim, and seeing the whole place change from bright orange to deep purple, is well worth waiting out the chill for. But, the recommendation is to take a sweater. If the Grand Canyon’s grand crowds reduce the magic for you there are many quieter pockets within the Canyonlands National Park, where the combination of unique geological features and dramatic multi-coloured skies make for lifelong memories.

The European equivalent of this grand sunset spectacle seems to be the area around the Dolomites. I know of it for skiing, but apparently, Cortina d’Ampezzo is a glorious place to watch the sun set behind the hills, or in this case, rocky mountain peaks. Further, the blues and white of Santorini’s buildings are augmented delightfully by the setting sun, as are the bright green, bowler hat shaped hills of the Lofoten Islands—you can admire them most clearly from a kayak, paddling between them. By the end of October, the sun sets in minutes, but during the summer, the light refraction show goes on for hours.

British patriots hate to see their country left out when it comes to being the best or most beautiful, so there were some suggestions of spots in Wales. Rhosneigr Bay, for the views of Snowdonia and the Lleyn Peninsula, and the Conwy Castle, a ruin right on the sea—can’t you just see the fingers of colour tracing over the old ruined battlements. The Isle of Skye was also recommended as being graced with some of the world’s best sunsets, again, it’s at its most photogenic when seen from the comfort of a sea kayak. The Brecon Beacons have been called a ridge of fire because of the shades they’re coloured, as well as for the fires that used to burn on their spines to warn of English invaders—at least by one person.

5 Best Places to See Wildlife in South Africa

Crossworld Holidays Tours & Travels

“Every breath you take, every move you make and every step you take, they’ll be watching you”. With their sharp eyes and heightened olfactory senses, the wild beings of our planet remind us of how fragile we actually are. We might hold them captive and make a mockery out of them, but when in their territory, we are the ones who need to tread lightly. Brave the elements, the rough terrain and the overabundance of foliage but do not exhibit your bravado while facing them. You are in the wild and peaceful co-existence is imperative, and South Africa is a brilliant illustration of this harmony. Apart from being a multi-ethnic society and a major seat of international politics, the country is also home to numerous species of wildlife and South Africans take a lot of pride in that fact.

The ‘Big 5’ is perhaps the most important attraction when it comes to wildlife in South Africa. This group is comprised of Cape buffalo, the African elephant, the lion, leopard and black rhino. Watching the wild in their natural habitat, reposing where they belong and preying upon their subordinates in the food chain is an unparalleled experience, and there are plenty of game reserves and national parks in the country that provide you with this wonderful opportunity. However, five of these reserves stand out for obvious reasons.

Mapungubwe National Park

What happens to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Mapungubwe National Park is the perfect place to introspect in peace. Your reverie will however be broken perhaps by the trumpeting of an elephant, a soaring eagle or the chirping of over 400 species of birds but none of that will be a damper. Apart from being deeply entrenched in history right up to the Iron Age, this park is also home to Nile crocodiles and meerkats. The big five can be spotted occasionally and so can oryxes, zebras, hyenas, baboons and kudus. Baobab trees, woodlands and sandstone formations are a major part of the brilliant landscape that Mapungubwe has to offer and every sight is of extreme cultural importance. It really is the idyllic animal kingdom that a multitude of Hollywood titles have attempted to represent. You will invariably have a good time!

Kruger National Park

Yet another massive game reserve in South Africa, Kruger National Park also happens to be the first. While it has gained a large amount of international popularity due to the viral ‘Battle at Kruger’ video on YouTube, physically visiting this UNESCO Biosphere Reserve is a surreal experience. Despite the profusion of magnificent veldt landscapes and every imaginable wild beast, Kruger also unfortunately happens to be a notorious asylum for poachers. Strict anti-poaching measures have been put in place by the government but that hasn’t really deterred plunderers from mercilessly killing rhinoceros and elephants for horns and ivory, respectively. Over 50 rest camps and lodges cater to wildlife enthusiasts and the safari rangers are the most efficient of the lot. I remember how we once had an entire herd of elephants peacefully crossing our path and the incessant clicking of pictures angered the mother who then furiously trumpeted at us before walking away. And then, rather ferocious lions can be seen after dark and they advertently circle your vehicle like they mean business. However, do not panic because the guides know exactly how to keep you safe. Do not be surprised if you see a vervet monkey sitting right outside your cabin on a wonderfully pleasant morning. They’ve probably just come to say hello.

Pilanesberg National Park

Located right outside Sun City, the entertainment capital of South Africa, Pilanesberg National Park, is a geological wonder, a haven for rich flora and fauna and home to an overflowing number of lodges. Driving to the reserve from Sun City is literally like being in two different worlds within an extremely short span of time considering how one is a luxurious man-made wonder and the other is the raw, unembellished face of nature. While the park is replete with African buffaloes, black and white rhinoceros, lions, cheetahs, leopards, zebras and elephants, they apparently like remaining unobtrusive for most of the day.

My most vivid memory of Pilanesberg, which now happens to be the most popular public game reserve in South Africa, was more terrifying than anything else. While I was safely nestled inside a semi-open jeep that was swerving on the unsurfaced track, a mighty elephant suddenly decided to block our way. My guide tried every tactic in the book to get the animal to move away from us but he seemed more obstinate than we had imagined and gradually started advancing towards the vehicle. I was preparing to get crushed by the giant when another jeep came from the opposite direction and together, we were able to confuse the beast and drive away, the maddening adrenaline continually pumping through our veins. I haven’t been very fond of elephants ever since.

Madikwe Game Reserve

Imagine waking up to the sounds of elephants trumpeting from somewhere eerily close to you. So close that it almost seems like they’re babbling, in their language of course, right into your ears. This makes up for one of my fondest memories of Madikwe Game Reserve where I woke up on my first morning and found a herd of elephants right outside my chalet, happily drinking out of a waterhole and playfully spraying water on each other. It was an incredulous experience and it set the tone for all the adventure that was in store for me.

One of the biggest game reserves in South Africa, incidentally the fifth largest, Madikwe is also a favourite for those who do not want to compromise on luxury during their tryst with the wild. For the ones who vehemently swear by their environmental consciousness, it is dotted with rather fancy eco-lodges. What once used to be a farmland, Madikwe was converted into a national parkbecause of its unyielding soil and that evidently was a great decision by the South African Government. During the brilliantly guided safaris, you will be greeted by lions, cheetahs, rhinoceroses, leopards, zebras, buffaloes, impalas, giraffes and ostriches among other majestic fauna. In order to satiate the most hardcore of gluttons, an array of delectable South African delicacies will perpetually be available. Missing out on Madikwe is almost sacrilegious.

Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

The Kalahari Desert is as unearthly a phenomenon as it could possibly be. For the longest time, you might wonder if you’ve somehow landed on Mars, considering the lack of life, vegetation and water (well, that is debatable now). Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, located within the desert, is one of the largest wildlife conservation areas in South Africa and the name literally means ‘a place of thirst’ given the fact that riverbeds are perpetually dry and there is nothing but a never-ending expanse of red sand. While the weather can be extreme with incredibly hot afternoons and nights so cold that even a dozen blankets couldn’t stop you from shivering, wildlife is abundant in the park. There are mighty lions, inconspicuous cheetahs, menacing leopards and sly hyenas. A multitude of herbivores ranging from springboks to gnus can be found roaming nonchalantly until they sense a predator coming for them. Kgalagadi is also a bird-watcher’s paradise.

Kgalagadi is a wonderful place to camp and experience being in the vicinity of the raw elements of the earth. Additionally, it also is the perfect gateway to explore and understand indigenous communities such as the Kalahari Bushmen, also known as the San people. Watch the stars at night and let the velvety sky be your roof for a change. It will be one beautifully indelible memory.

Sightseeing in the Andamans

Crossworld Holidays Tours & Travels (IATA approved)

One can never get enough of the aqua marine sea and the breezy beaches of the Andamans, but if you want to pack in some action, the island has a number of interesting sightseeing options. History, adventure and culture converge here, to make a wholesome holiday. Here are the top picks for travellers who are looking for something other than the beaches.

Andaman Group Tours From Thane, Mumbai

Cellular Jail National Memorial

A reminder of India’s sombre history of colonial rule comes alive in the Cellular Jail National Memorial at Port Blair. A former jail (also known as kala pani) where many Indian freedom fighters were housed and killed, is a peek into the country’s history. A moving light and sound show in the evenings from Monday to Wednesday sums up the experience of the political prisoners here. History buffs are bound to love this.

Wandoor & Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park

Head about 30 km outside Port Blair to Wandoor, the hotspot for exotic marine sightings and a base for the Mahatma Gandhi Marine National Park. Expect a slow boat ride along the mangrove islands. Snorkeling and other underwater experiences are very popular here, and many tourists even prefer to dive here rather than at Havelock island. Jolly Buoy and Red Skin are the islands most popular spots for underwater adventures, but be mindful of the timing—they’re open to public only between Oct and May.

Chatham Saw Mill

Established in 1836, one of Asia’s largest saw mills was set up by the Britishers on Chatham Island. The mill is still functional even to this day. This is a good pit-stop for those who’re interested in learning a little about the history and economy of the Andamans. It’s a relatively off-beat experience, but worth your while—you’ll get to see weathered machinery still trudging along. A fort museum close by is avoidable, but look out for the crater in the vicinity—which was formed when the Japanese dropped a bomb during World War II.

Anthropological Museum

Even if anthropology is not your choice of subject on a holiday, this museum cannot be given a miss. The exhibits might be slightly old and dusty, but they give a great insight into the indigenous cultures of the islands. Seeing the Jarawas (the tribal inhabitants) on your way to Diglipur will seem much more exciting if you know a little about them. Likewise find out more about the other tribes and their cultures.

Diglipur

The explorer in you will be enthralled by this massive adventure park, replete with caves, a turtle nesting site and the highest peak of Andamans in Diglipur—all in all, the trek to the north is worth your while. The craggy Island, mud volcanoes, a trek through the jungle to Alfred Caves and Ross & Smith Islands are the other highlights here. If you like some extra adventure, then the Saddle Peak is a day-long hike with rewarding views of the vicinity. You can use a combination of ferries and road or seaplanes to get here from Port Blair. The route from Port Blair to Diglipur is known as the Jarawa belt, where it is not uncommon to see the tribal inhabitants of the area close to the road. Taking photographs is strictly prohibited.

Indian Snacks to Binge on in The Cold Winter Months

Crossworld Holidays Tours & Travels

Churned out along the length and breadth of the country, these popular street snacks are cater to hungry diners all through the year, but take on an extra dollop of deliciousness during the cold winter months. From hot steaming cuppas of ginger tea and molten sweet jalebis, to delicious stuffed parathas and happiness in the form of deep fried kachoris—these ten Indian snacks will warm your tummy and your heart.

Street Dishes in India

Chai from Giani Tea Stall

Gurmit Singh has been running his tea stall very successfully for the last 58 years, and shows no signs of slowing down. When it comes to bubbling hot creamy chai, this man has the perfect formula.

Malaiyo from Shribandhu Sweets

Shribandhu Sweets off Kachauri Gali is one the most famous sweet shops of Varanasi and locals swear by its fresh preparations.

Channa bhatura at Sita Ram and Sons

To sample some of the best channa bhaturas in town, make your way to Sita Ram and Sons, a famous eating joint at Shimla’s Lakkar Bazaar.

Street Dishes in India

Shrewsbury biscuits from Kayani Bakery

Over half a century old, this tiny, old-school Irani bakery is a Pune landmark.

Pav Bhaji from Sardaar Pav Bhaji

If you’ve had pav bhaji anywhere else, we can assure you that it cannot even be compared to the one Sardaar Pav Bhaji dishes out

Street Dishes in India

Paratha

Om Sai Paratha is the 5-star equivalent in street food, and dishes out some of the most hygienic, expensive and delicious parathas you’ll ever eat.

Samosas from Munni Lal Halwai

Few things taste as good as a hot samosa on a cold winter day. And when the samosa in question is made by Munni Lal Halwai (Frontier Waale),a samosa shop in Gole Market, you’ll be salivating, weather notwithstanding.

Jalebis from Chandni Chowk

Situated at the northern end of Gurudwara Sis Ganj Sahib in Chandni Chowk, this age-old sweet shop dishes out the juiciest jalebis in the city.

Ram laddoos in Alaknanda market

It’s difficult to trace the heritage of these deep fried balls of moong dal popularly known in the capital as Ram laddoo. Essentially, the laddoos are golden balls of lentils which are light and fluffy, crunchy on the top and soft inside, and are served with a garnish of tangy green chutney and grated radish. Vendors station themselves at crowded hubs across the city, and the one at the Alaknanda market in south delhi is definitely one of the best.

Kebabs at Bade Miya

If you’re in the mood for meat on a stick or just a quick mutton roll to fill you up before or after a binge drinking session around town, this roadside eatery near Colaba Causeway is something of an institution when it comes to midnight snacking. Functioning out of a tiny cart parked in the alley behind Taj Mahal Palace in Apollo Bunder, Bade Miya is a name synonymous with great kebabs, delectable Baida Roti (flat bread doused and fried with egg) and delicious tandoori preps. This place is essentially a take away place while they have a few tables which are invariably occupied. Most prefer to grab a roll for the road by just driving past this master of flaming meats. If you’re planning a full-fledged meal, circle Mutton Rohanjosh or Mutton Bhuna among mutton dishes, Chicken Lasooni Tikka or Chicken Reshmi Tikka among chicken specialties or the full Chicken Tandoori if you have the stomach for it. Also, if you’re more comfortable with a sit down experience in a restaurant setting, head to their new branch only 5 minutes from this one at Fort (7/8/9, 6, Botawala Building, Near State Central Library, Horniman Circle, Fort, Mumbai, Phone: 022 22655657).

Adventures in Thailand you shouldn’t miss

Crossworld Holidays

There is no dearth of adventures in Thailand—depending upon individual preferences, tourists can choose from sea kayaking, diving and sailing to climbing and training camps, among others.

Thailand Package Tour From Mumbai

Climbing in Railay

Railay is famous for bolted sport climbing with challenging, overhanging routes and bouldering opportunities in caves, shorelines, and on sea stacks only reachable by a boat (known as ‘deep water soloing’). Tourists are welcomed to the towering limestone cliffs of their dreams. While there’s established climbing all over the peninsula, the best and greatest concentration of routes is found on Tonsai—a cove just down from Railay West. This is also where you’ll find the climbing community—both local and foreign. It is advisable to avoid the monsoon season, and the best time to enjoy climbing in Railay is between November and April.

Diving in Koh Tao

Wrecks, corals, tropical fish, warm water, killer visibility, and plenty of post-dive entertainment await travellers at Koh Tao. You’ll be hard-pressed to find better diving at a more affordable price than on Koh Tao in the Gulf of Thailand. Instructors and divers come from all over the world for the clear, warm water with an abundance of tropical fish, corals, and wrecks. Koh Tao is small enough to feel intimate and unspoilt, yet has some great beachfront bars, restaurants, and classic Thai bungalow accommodations. The ideal time to go is from July through September when the visibility is best.

Sailing in the Andaman Sea

Just offshore of Phuket lies some of the best cruising destinations in the world. Everywhere you sail will be gorgeous. Plenty of boats-for-hire sit waiting in the marinas, ready to whisk you off on the trip of a lifetime. If the sailing bug gets you good, consider signing up for a lesson from Royal Yachting Association-certified captains who will show you the ropes (quite literally) over an afternoon or multi-day lesson. For those seeking a multi-day adventure, inquire about trips to the rugged and untracked Tarutao National Marine Park. In an area crowded with noisy longtail boats and fancy motor yachts, there’s nothing better than switching off the engine, hoisting sail, and letting Mother Nature do the work. Avoid monsoons by booking your boat between November and April.

Thailand Package From Mumbai

Jungle trekking around Pai

Waterfalls, rivers and open grassy fields flanked by steep, lush mountains define the stunning landscape of Pai. While Chiang Mai commands more tourist dollars, Pai is the laid-back alternative, popular with backpackers and nature lovers for decades. Moreover, Northern Thailand is home to some of the best jungle trekking venues in Southeast Asia, and few towns make a better base camp than Pai, located about three hours northwest from Chiang Mai. The area has trails, waterfalls, hot springs, and excellent local food. March is the most comfortable month to explore Pai as it transitions from winter (October to February) to summer (April to May). Rainy season starts in May or June and can be a fantastic, tourist-free time to visit, as rains bring out lush tropical foliage.

Exploring Bangkok’s Chatuchak Weekend Market

Chatuchak Weekend Market means great food, bargain prices, authentic goods, and sensory overload. Dive right into the largest outdoor market in Thailand (and probably all of Southeast Asia), which covers 35 acres and contains over 15,000 stalls. The deeper you explore, the deeper you’ll go into a fascinating menagerie of exotic birds, hand-carved teak furniture, fresh-cooked rice dishes, live prawns, puppies, pet squirrels, bolts of brightly coloured fabric, massage oils, candles, patent leather goods, sandals and much more.

Chatuchak Market—or the more farang-friendly ‘JJ Market’—has it all and is an adventure to explore, so join the 200,000 other daily visitors navigating the circular market, where a prominent clock tower marks the centre. If you see something you like, buy it straightaway because you’re unlikely to find your way back to that particular stall in this tangled web of hyper-commerce. Every stall is open on Saturdays and Sundays (get there early—9 am or so) but a few stay open all week long, and most vendors close shop about 6 pm.

Muay Thai training camp

Get abs like those Spartans in 300 while also learning basic self-defence at the Muay Thai training camp. You don’t have to be an aspiring professional kickboxer or mixed martial artist to attend Muay Thai kickboxing camp in Thailand. Anyone willing to pay the price both financially and physically is rewarded with seriously elevated levels of fitness, increased hand-eye coordination, more confidence, and a deep sense of camaraderie.

Many Thai gyms in Phuket, Bangkok, Krabi, Chiang Mai, Pattaya, Koh Samui, and Koh Phangan cater to Westerners just learning the sport. There’s no long-term commitment required—train for a day or a year. Facilities are clean, modern, and comparable to any martial arts gym in the West. Though you can participate in this activity anytime of the year, the rainy season is considered perfect. Just be careful, don’t get so fit that you become unrecognisable and have trouble passing back through immigration!

Sea kayaking along Ao Nang Bay

Ao Nang Bay boasts karst islands, white sand beaches, sea caves, grottoes, and a waterline view of Thailand like none other. Eighty-three islands pockmark this rugged bay of steep cliffs, white sand beaches and crystal-clear tropical water. Hiring a kayak or joining a tour is super easy—reputable outfitters offer everything from daily excursions to week-long ‘mothership’ (travel by motorboat with kayaks in-tow) adventures.

Kayaking is a quiet way to enjoy the beauty of Ao Nang Bay. You’ll paddle by massive jungle cliff faces, stalactite-filled sea caves, maze-like mangroves, and day-glow coral. Bring or rent snorkel gear for a refreshing plunge over the side. January, February and March are ideal months for sea kayaking along Ao Nang Bay.
