Are you a foodie? And a Traveler ? Then the 24 hour McLeodganj Foodtrail is just what you need to do.
McLeodganj is a very popular travel destination in Dharamshala, and is just a couple of hours away from Amritsar which is the home to the Golden Temple, and plenty of amazing Amritsar Street Food options on offer. Being just 250 km (5 hours) journey from Chandigarh and around 475 km (9-10 hours) journey from Delhi, McLeodganj has become a hotspot for weekend trips. It is frequented by travellers but usually jam-packed with tourists specially on long weekends.
McLeodganj has a lot to offer to all kinds of travellers alike. First the Triund trek which is  a 9 km trek from McLeodganj main square. And it is a foodie’s haven with all kinds of foods and cuisines available in the many cafes spread all over the town and that is precisely why you should do the 24 hour McLeodganj Foodtrail
McLeodganj is best explored on foot and to enjoy the city it is recommended to park your vehicle in the parking lot near the bus stop for the duration of the stay. This does two things – Less traffic on the narrow roads and making your effort to keep the town pollution free.
The buses from Delhi usually arrive early in the morning by 6-7 AM which is the perfect time to start the 24 hour McLeodganj foodtrail in the streets of McLeodganj.
Start the day with a hot cup of lemon ginger tea and some bread omlet from any of the numerous stalls spread around the city.

Satisfy the pre-lunch hunger by trying out some hot Momos from any street vendor. The best part about Momos or dumplings is that they are available all through out the day so you can have them any number of times you want during the 24 hour McLeodganj foodtrail. They are priced very decently starting from some Rs 40 per plate. The accompanying chutney and mayonnaise act as the perfect accompaniment and balancing the taste.

Indulge in some freshly baked pastries/cakes from the bakeries out there. The one right in front of Carpediem sells Chocolate Banana cake which is just out of the world.
If you are still hungry, do try out the soups at the Norling Café before hogging onto some freshly cooked tikkas and kababs right off the tandoor. The area in front of the Temple just steps away from the Main Square is filled with vendors selling such items when all the cafes have closed down and should be definitely tried out during your 24 hour McLeodganj Foodtrail.
PS – The cafes close down early and its highly likely that you might get a seat in any of the cafes post 8:30 PM, so step out of your rooms early to fill up your tummies with all that you can have.
