Bhagsu Waterfall Overview

Ranked 2 of 34 sightseeing in McLeodganj

Bhagsu Waterfall, situated close to Bhagsunath Temple, is one of the beautiful streams in the destination. The waterfall has a cascade of 30 ft during monsoons. Decorated with slate graffiti, the mountain side of the fall is among the highlights of the tourist spot.

Bagsu waterfall, in Mcleodgunj

Its a very beautiful waterfall. The temperature of water is low so all the tiredness of the body is easily lost as soon **** you jump in. One has to be careful with cold water because it can cause cramps if you are not adequately hydrated. This and many more of such waterfalls in this area are just an amazing watch.

For those who have the capacity to walk.

Generally those who can walk on the mountain, just like a small Trek then they can go easily. But not for aged people & kids as they will get tired. After a long beautiful walk, there will be waterfall but less water around April, May .. It depends!

Long walk leading to a beautiful falls

Small trek to Bhagsu waterfall from the main town of McLeodganj is highly recommended. After reaching the falls, don't forget to have chai and snacks at "End of the world" cafe, just below the falls.Also, you can take a detour to Shiva cafe and enjoy with the hippie crowd.

Nothing special in this waterfall. I won't recommend to spend time over here. There are more waterfalls on other places to enjoy. However. This place could be important if you visit during April-May when water is in full stream.

Hardly any water but nice shed up there to rest

The walk up is only 15-20 mins. There was hardly any water. The best part is a further walk upward to Shiva Cafe where you have food, music and a small pool.

Awesome experience

It was awesome trip. McLeod ganj was awesome. The main attraction of McLeod ganj is bhagsu waterfall and main market of McLeodganj. Bhagsu waterfall was little bit far. But this is not the matter. I enjoyed alot. Simply the best. People those who have not visited Dharamshala and McLeodganj, please visit atleast once.

A must for the trekker

A steep climb up the mountain, halfway through the climb you'll feel like stopping but give it a final push and you'll be filled with joy. Little tea stalls along the way. A little detour just before the Falls will take you to a place called Siva Cafe. Do wander to this little cafe as it offers a beautiful and a mind bender for the adventure seeker.
