  • Nice beautiful place. Few attractive for kids. Big transparent ball where kids can sit inside. Very very short para gliding kind of thing. Play with Rabbits. Enjoy snacks, not vey tasty but okay. Take water with you.
  • Go visit in the morning. 6-7 AM is the best time. There is mist over the dried lake/marsh. Walking on the dewy grass through the faint Haze makes for a wonderful delight.
  • Khajjiar Lake is one of the very few sight-seeing destinations around Dalhousie. The actual lake is incredibly small in size, but what's astounding is the massive unending grass-covered plains surrounding it. Thousands of people occupy it during peak season, and yet it never feels crowded. Lots of activities can be indulged in, like zorbing, paragliding and more. There are some really good restaurants on the entry point which serve delicious North Indian food. A liquor shop is also present here. Although very pleasing to the eyes, Khajjiar gets boring after a few hours. It's not a place where you can spend an entire day. A few hours is more than enough.
  • Khajjiar lake is situated at a height of around 1,920 m above sea level between Dalhousie and Chamba town in the state of Himachal Pradesh of India. The small lake is set in huge grassy glade with surroundings of evergreen cedars covering an area of about 5000 sq. yards. Its name has originated from Khajji Nag, the deity in a temple nearby. The vast green grassy meadow around the Lake as far as you can see seems endless with  thick cedar forest and shadow of tall mountain peaks on the horizon .This place is sometimes called "Mini Switzerland" as the scenery resembles the Alps. This Lake is easily accessible from Chamba, the District head quarters.
  • Any description of this place in mere word wont do a justice to the beauty of this place. it can only be felt if you visit this place. Great place for Delhities and specially bikers for weekend escapades
