Bhagsu Waterfall

Bhagsu is like a picturesque taste of Indian village life combined with techno hippy mecca. The locals go about their daily business of tending vege gardens, goats and dairy cows to the drifting accompaniment of trance techno and muffled bass from one of the many Israeli hangouts. Most of the area is inaccesible to vehicles and everthing is connected by forest trails and steep, stone pathways leading up the hillside. But many of the old 'authentic' houses here share the landscape with recently built guesthouses catering for the increasing number of visitors. In fact, the local Indian families seem to make a tidy living from converting part of their homes and gardens into accomodation with homestyle hospitality for lone travellers such as myself, and a reluctant tolerance for the noisy tribes of young Israelis and backpackers getting their first taste of freedom.

Psuedo-hippy hangout, Bagsu is a place of learning, with a myriad of courses in the field of alternative medicines, self-development and healing. It is encouraging to see youth who are balancing their rebellious partying with the positve and life-affirming energies of Reiki, Ayurvedic Medicine, Chakra healings, massage, Tai Chi and many different styles of Yoga and meditation. The Israelis come here for the lush scenery, cheap living.. The cafe scene is all floor cushions, tie-dye wall hangings and coloured lamps, tinged with the sweet aroma of natural atmosphere. The young jews lounge around in groups dressed in every colour of the rainbow, smoking, eating, playing music together and just chilling out. They describe their scene as Shanti, a Hindi word for peace, and their shanti is very warm and welcoming. It is easy to start friendships here, the Israeli youth love to talk about their experiences and perspective of world issues, politics, life, love and healing. Passionate, intense and deeply personal conversations are frequent and many are genuinely interested in learning.

Bhagsu offers a shanti (peaceful) vibe that brings me to a relaxed state that makes it possible for everybody to reflect the lessons and growth.

About two kilometers from McLeod is a holy pilgrim site for Hindus. Bhagsu, as it is better known has an ancient Shiv temple. The main attraction for the tourist and the crowd puller here is not the temple but the public swimming pool. It is a treat for tourist making it to Dharamsala during the hot months. But if you are not a great fan of crowded places then stear clear of this swimming pool as it is always crowded. Of course except during the cold winters when the water is freezing. Further from the swimming pool is the stream which flows rather narrowly down below but then here also the main attraction is the waterfall which is about a kilometer from the swimming pool. If you have a lot of clothes to wash and you don't want to give it to the laundry man to save some bucks then this is the ideal place to do your own laundry and take a bath in the cool, clear water from the Dauladhar ranges.
