    Serene and steep trek around stupa
    Take a walk of almost 45 minutes from HH Dalai lama residence/temple with a steep incline at the end of trek. You get to see awesome scenic views of the valley and stupa surrounded by pine trees. Not very popular among tourists and not much crowded.

    A peaceful nature walk
    Dubbed the kora walk, this is one of the most peaceful experiences during my time in Mcleodganj. While the path is hilly in parts, it can be easily attempted even by beginners with minimum physical fitness. It traverses through beautiful Tibetan flags, Buddhist stupa, towering trees and local lives. Absolutely gorgeous!

    Nice place
    I had visited during morning time. The area of the temple is huge. Namgyal Monastery also called Dalailama Temple. There are Institute, admistration office and residence of Dalai lama, library adjacent of temple. This place is very calm. There is no entry fees. This temple is just one minute walking distance from Dharamsala skyway/ropeway.

The Dalai Lama Temple is a Buddhist temple and monastery located in Mcleodganj, about 2 km from the main square. It's a serene and spiritual destination that offers a beautiful temple surrounded by natural views in the lap of nature.

The temple is well-maintained and managed, and although it can be crowded with tourists most of the time, it remains a peaceful and calm place. Visitors can spend a full day at the temple, taking in the atmosphere and enjoying the beauty of the temple and natural surroundings.

For those seeking a spiritual or meditative experience, or an opportunity to learn more about the cultural and religious significance of the temple, it seems like a great place to visit. Overall, the Dalai Lama Temple offers a unique and unforgettable experience that is sure to be a highlight of any trip to Mcleodganj.

We stayed at Norbu House Hotel which had an alternate exit that involved a 300 mts walk straight to the Tibetan market where the Dalai Lama Temple is located. An event had just concluded when we entered and all devotees were distributed snacks. The hall of the temple was comparatively much smaller than Gyotu Monastery.

The place where the Dalai Lama resides is at a higher level and tourists are not allowed to visit him. We were told that when he wants to address the gathering, he would come down to the temple. We did not get a chance to see him unfortunately.
