About Bhagsu Waterfall

Bhagsu Village is a quaint but highly picturesque ‘Gaddi’ (a shepherd tribe) Tribal village where traditional livelihood was herding and farming. It lies at an elevation of 6,669 feet above sea level. Over the years, this quaint little village has emerged as the hub of tourist activity at McLeod Ganj, and the beautiful Bhagsu Falls have a huge part to play in this found fame. These falls are 30 feet high. From the Shiva Temple, the only way to reach these falls is by walking. The trek is easy as proper walking trails are paved in between the hilly walks. This trek is a totally worthy climb as the sight of water gushing from the 30 feet elevation is mesmerizing. There is not much water during the summers, but the falls are brimming during the monsoons. Water is freezing cold and totally refreshing. Dip your bare feet in it to experience rejuvenating chills. People can be seen merrily posing for pictures and dipping in waters. The best time to visit the Bhagsu Falls in the mornings when it remains less crowded and the best season is, of course, the monsoons when water is in full flow. Near the falls there are many makeshift eating joints interesting in their unique seating arrangements of piled up flat rocks that act as chairs!
