  • I honestly found the place to be a bit overrated. The drive up to Khajjiar from Dalhousie is scenic. However there's nothing much at the destination itself besides a large field surrounded by tall pin...  more »

  • This place is called Mini Swiss of India. To the some extent its true. The place have awesome view during April to August months. In other season the greenery is introduced to the great extent and therefore the best view is missing. However it is very nice place to visit in any season. The main issue is you get stuck in traffic in most of the times during the peak season. therefore it is advisable to leave early in the morning to visit this place to avoid traffic. further the situation get worst if there is snowfall. Try wearing traditional dresses and have excellent click here. The place is good for photography. Have a horse ride here. The improvement is expected in the status of the lake since it is in very bad shape.
  • Beautiful place with green grasslands and a lake in the middle surrounded by mountains and trees. Lovley place for a picnic with family and friends.
  • A perfect place for all.. whether they are couple or family.. A Must visit place
  • It is a small lake, also known as Mini Switzerland of India, situated amid lush green pastures surrounded by deodar trees. The place is very pleasing but some people are spoiling it's beauty by throwing litter everywhere even in the lake instead of throwing it in the dustbins. Local people take holy bath in the lake on local festivals. We should not pollute it. One can enjoy lots of fun activity there like zorbing, horse riding, paragliding, photo shoot in local traditional costume and with rabbits. Few dhabhas(sharma dhaba) near the lake serve delicious food (especially breakfast). There are lots of street dogs ,don't be scared of them. They are very friendly. The lake is believed to be named after the diety 'Khajji Naag' whose temple is situated on the shore of this lake.
  • Khajjiar Lake is positioned at a height of 1900 m in the district of Chamba, 25 kms and 16 kms from Chamba and Dalhousie respectively. Khajjiar was in 1992 christened as "mini Switzerland" by the then Vice-Counsellor and Head of the Chancery of Switzerland in India, Willy Blazer. Khajjiar Lake is situated at the central part of a large Khajjiar glade. This lake is fed by small streams. It stays full of water during all the seasons. Consequently, it doesn't need any rain water for its survival. But lake have lost much of its beauty and charm over the years The dense forest of the Kalatope sanctuary in its neighborhood adds to the beauty of Khajjiar Lake. There are some rides and paragliding for kids (₹500) in khajjiar ground. 🏇 @ ₹300-400 for a full round of ground. 3mnt paragliding for adults @ ₹1500 and ₹400 for GoPro recording.
