Welcome to Bhagsu & Dharamkot
Through pine trees north and east of McLeod lie the villages of Bhagsu (officially Bhagsunag) and Dharamkot, more rural and laid-back and alternative than McLeod itself. These are the abodes of choice for many budget travellers and long-stayers, and especially popular among Israelis. Here you can take classes in tarot, Reiki, numerology, crystal healing and varieties of yoga you've never heard of, do sitar, tabla or flute lessons, get or learn to give a dozen types of massage, have your hair dreadlocked, dyed or extended, or just lounge in cafes and practise your juggling. Some of the area's best and most serious yoga and meditation schools are here too.
