Chonor House is the perfect place to stay in Mcleod Ganj as it’s conveniently located near the Thekchen Chöling Temple adjacent to the Dalai Lama’s residence. The accommodation is part of the Norbulingka Institute dedicated to the preservation of Tibetan literature and artistic forms and was built by the British architect David Porter to blend in with the natural environment.

This boutique hotel has eleven rooms which are decorated in a unique Tibetan theme, with beautiful murals featuring nearby regions, appliquéd fabrics, hand-knotted carpets and carved and decorated wooden furniture, all made by local craftsmen.

Dining at Chonor House involves fine international cuisine made with fresh ingredients, alongside cakes, fresh juices, and speciality coffee. The Hummingbird Restaurant menu includes dishes such as handmade ravioli, Tibetan thukpa and Vietnamese spring rolls, which you can eat in the cosy dining room, or alfresco accompanied by gorgeous views and landscaped gardens.
