Just a short hop from the underwhelming Dal Lake, 3km northwest of McLeod, the Tibetan Children’s Village provides free education for nearly 2000 refugee children and lodging for most of them. Founded in the 1960s, it's now one of 12 such schools around India. Visitors are welcome.

You can get there by autorickshaw (₹100) or taxi (₹150) from McLeod.
