German Cakes, Dogs & A Garden Cafe: This McLeod Homestay's A Steal For INR 1,000

Shortcut

The hosts of this bnb property are an Indian-German family of five who’ve been staying in the Dhauladhar range for two decades. Their two adorable dogs {and a cat} drop by for occasional petting and we hear they do the best vegan and German bakes in town.

Solitude's The Cherry On The Cake

If you’re someone who’s forever ready to hop on to a bus to the hills, you’ve probably been to McLeod Ganj. If not, we’ve found a place a little away from the town’s madness that’d be great for some much needed downtime. It in fact even works even if you’ve been with your gang and stayed at seedy guesthouses with leaky geysers before – this will give you a new perspective.

Trimurti Gardens, as its called, is filled with sunshine and doggie love courtesy Moti and Coco. If you’re a cat person and solo, book-loving variety, you’ll probably be better friends with Lily the cat though. Yes, it’s a short climb up but that’s a very small price to pay for a place as peaceful and musical as this.

Garden Of Eden, This

You can choose from a single room if you’re hoping to tap into your creative juices by reading and writing or drag along a fellow traveller who likes the same mountain things as you {the views from the windows are spectacular}.

Practice yoga or just enjoy a wholesome meal in the garden cafe with other foodies who drop by in search of memorable meals. Try their cappuccino and cookies and you’ll keep going back for more.

Oh, and you know what else you can do? Learn an instrument. Ashoka, the host is a celebrated tabla player who welcomes music learners from all over the world who come to train in sitar, table or the flute and if you’re keen, you can sign up for classes. We hear that thanks to the peace-loving family, the house is filled with the mellow aroma of incense and you’ll sometimes be privy to musical notes wafting from the other room. This is bliss if you ask us.
