Back-Pack-Go! McleodGanj, Himachal Pradesh
Welcome to Back-Pack-Go!
We personally hope you leave the city version of you behind. We're going to the hills. The hills will always greet you with her arms wide open, provided you respect her.
We are not tour operators, you will not be tourists. Our aim is to create an experience for you, a personal experience. Come with old friends, make some new ones, write a story, climb a mountain, jump into a river, dance, sing and fall in love. Do everything you’ve always wanted to. We implore you to break free. Come rediscover yourself.

Day 2: We reach McLeod Ganj early in the morning. Our home-stay type hotels are located in Dharamkot, a picturesque hill town which is just a 10 min cab ride away from us with spectacular views of the entire valley. After breakfast at McLeod Ganj, we head to H. H. Dalai Lama Temple, Namgyal Monastery and the Tibet Museum. We will also visit the ‘St. John’s in the Wilderness’ Church and then sample some local cuisine for dinner.
Day 3: A good night’s rest and a heavy breakfast later, we will head to Naddi, a tiny, peaceful village nestled amongst the pine covered mountains and vibrant yellow mustard fields. We’ll begin our first hike toward the pristine Naddi River where we’ll spend our day lazing next to the river and exploring the valley. Dinner will be back at McLeod Ganj, post which you’ll be free to explore the night-life of the town.
Day 4: Aaah! The big day! We’ll trek to Triund, one of the highest snow-capped peaks of the Dhauladhar mountain range. After an early breakfast we’ll head to Galudev Temple. We’ll make our way to Triund, which is 2875 meters above sea level. It’s a day long hike but the serene mountainous landscape, rare wildlife and a trail dotted with magical little cafés with breathtaking views will keep you going. At night we’ll camp in tents facing the majestic snow-clad mountain range.
Day 5: After experiencing an unforgettable sunrise, we’ll have breakfast and trek right up to the snow line. Be warned, we take our snowball fights very seriously. Small icy streams and glacial waterfalls are a common sight on this trail. Another night of camping, music and good food is what lies ahead of you this day.
Day 6: After breakfast we say goodbye to Triund and start our descent, reaching our hotel in Dharamkot by afternoon. The day is yours to rest those muscles you never knew you had. In the evening we’ll stroll around the quiet hillside of Dharamkot before we meet for dinner later. You can check out some of the popular cafes in the area which have live acts, music, jam sessions and workshops happening every other night.
Day 7: Post breakfast we’ll head to Shiva Café which is a good 45 min hike. We’ll stop by the holy Bhagsunag waterfall on the way and then head back in the evening for dinner. The evening can be spent shopping or wandering around the lanes of the McLeod market.
Day 8: After breakfast and check out we’ll make our final shopping calls at McLeod Ganj. Post lunch we head to Delhi by a semi- sleeper AC bus.
