The best viewpoint in Mcleodganj no-one will tell you about. Durga Temple perched atop Gallu Temple ridge.

Last week we visited what we reckon is the second best viewpoint over Mcleodganj. Today we share the best viewpoint over Mcleodganj with our readers. It is a moderate 1.2 km / 1.5 hour trek to this viewpoint but the views along this trail are dazzling. Read on to find out more.


The best viewpoints in Mcleodganj no—one will tell you about. Runners up – Durga Temple and Tibetan prayer flags near Gallu Temple.

Are there places other than Triund with an equally good or perhaps a better view over Mcleodganj?
We find two places that we reckon have an equally good or better view. The first of these viewpoints is the roofless Durga temple and Tibetian prayer site a few hundred metres from Gallu temple.

Waterfall Cafe trek – A quiet and serene hike near Mcleodganj

If you find Triund to be loud and boisterous this summer, we recommend taking a quiet trek to Waterfall Cafe. The Waterfall Cafe trek is a 2.5-kilometre / 1-hour easy trek with a waterfall and a tea shop at its terminus. You may extend the length and difficulty of this trek by following the waterfall rivulet, upstream.
