  • We visited at the peak time and it was fully crowded. Just looked like a big ground with too many people. Had we visited at other time and month, the review might have been different.  more »

  • Scenic place, but limited options for any activity. There are a number of persons who approach you for paragliding. Charges are Rs 1500/- (longer glide) & 1200/- (shorter glide). But, the initial price which will be quoted are 2000 & 1500, therefore bargain. The start point of the paragliding point is on a hill which is 5-7 mins drive from the lake, followed by a 15-20 mins climb on a jungle trail.
  • Well saying Switzerland is an exaggeration.. Nothing much than a lake with certain activities. One of the things that I liked was paragliding. Height was not much still liked it as was my first time.. Decent place to hangout with family.
  • This was totally copy of Sanasar near Patnitop Jammu and Kashmir. But the experience of it was very spectacular.
  • The Khajjiar lake is situated in the Chambal district of Himachal Pradesh. Surrounded by grassy hills and cotton clouds, this lake is a tranquil picture of natural beauty. Located at the height of about 1920 meters, this destination is a picture perfect landscape. Hailed as 'Mini Swiss', Khajjiar is famous for its paragliding and horse riding activities. If you wish to rejuvenate your body and refresh your spirit, then perhaps Khajjiar lake is the best place to be. Coupling scenic natural beauty and thrilling adventure sports such as paragliding, you will enjoy each and every experience over here. Paragliding here is a must, for it's a unique chance to capture the Himachali terrain from an altogether new height. And of course, the exhileration of the ride is amazing in every way! You can also traverse the gentle Himachal hills on horseback, and it will certainly give you a regal feeling. A charming destination, Khajjiar is the perfect weekend getaway!
  • Beautiful place to witness the beauty of nature and to have fun with kids in a huge open ground. One should carry their own sport equipment because buying from there might not cost less.
