About Khajjiar Tourism

Khajjiar is a beautiful hill station, located in the Chamba District of Himachal Pradesh. Often known as the Switzerland of India, it is situated at an altitude of 1,951 meters and is located in the north-western part of the state.

During the 6th century, Chamba valley was under the reign of Rajput rulers who made this region their capital city. Later in the medieval period, the valley became a part of the Mughal Empire, after which it came under the rule of various Sikh kingdoms. Subsequently, it was taken over by the British, after which on April 15, 1948, it became a part of the state of Himachal Pradesh. 

Since the destination was under the reign of Rajput rulers and the Mughal Empire, the architecture in Khajjiar represents a blend of Mughal as well as Hindu architectural styles. One of the prime attractions of the destination is the Kalatop Khajjiar Sanctuary that provides tourists a spot to connect with nature. Khajjiar Lake is another sightseeing option which tourists must visit along with the ancient Khajjinag Temple, which comprises images of the Pandavas and Kaurvas. A nine-hole golf course is an added attraction to this hill station.

The major fairs celebrated within the region include Baisakhi fair, Jwalamukhi fair, Dal fair and the Sayar fair. In addition, the destination is also known for its handicrafts, among which the 'rumal' is the most prominent.

Khajjiar, being a major tourist attraction, is well connected to the rest of India and other parts of the world through several modes of transportation such as flights, trains and buses. The nearest airport to this hill station is the Gaggal Airport, which is approximately at a distance of 46 km from the destination, while the closest railway station Pathankot Railway Station, situated at a distance of 95 km from this hill station. Besides, tourists can also visit Khajjiar by buses which are operated by Himachal Road Transport Corporation (HRTC) from places like Dalhousie and Chamba.

The best time to visit Khajjiar is during summers, which extends from the month of March to June.

"A perfect weekend retreat in nature's bed" new review

  • 5/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
This place is covered with a thick blanket of pine trees with vast grass plains and snow capped mountains in the background, which gives us a feel of Switzerland alps and South American pampas. It's nature at its best and well reminds us the fact that - nature doesn't need us, we need nature and it's at its best when we leave it be.! You can already notice that the pond at this place got polluted :( - the only minus of the place! Nearby there's a huge IDOL of LORD SHIVA atop a temple which again is in the foreground of snow capped peaks. :D This place is best for a romantic weekend getaway from Dalhousie (just 23 km).

"Dirty place"

  • 3.5/7
  • Posted Nov 6, 2014
The lake in between the field is too dirty, if cleaned regularly, then it can be rated 6 on 7. Visiting Khajjiar was disappointing because it didn't stood up to the expectations. If seen from a distance place looks like heaven, but when u start descending to the field and cow dung starts appearing everywhere, then your reviews start changing about the place. When you reach the lake you, you will definitely think that the place is overrated. Maybe it is good to visit in Winters when this place is covered with snow, because probably then the cow dung will be buried under snow. The restaurants near the lake are not at all god, they are too expensive, and the food they cook is not at all good. Me and my cousins regretted visiting this place. :(

"Best time to visit is after November"

  • 5/7
  • Posted Oct 18, 2014
A very very nice place to be. Although its a place more for couples are seen, but if you are bunch of friends and family who love peace, you can go there. Wonderful and a beautiful place to be. Best time to visit is after November, when it is covered with ice. Was unlucky to see but would definitely visit again soon.

"A place to relax"

  • 2/7
  • Posted Jul 31, 2014
Having heard a lot about this place, we made a five hours journey from Dharamshala to Khajjiar only to be disappointed. Although it's a nice picnic spot but that's just it. There are good hotels around, although not a lot to do except relax. Go here if you want to seek solitude and a break from busy life. Adventure and thrill enthusiasts should stay away.

"Beautiful and serene"

  • 3.5/7
  • Posted Nov 13, 2013
Khajjair gives an out of the world experience. You reach there and the view of the meadow/ valley is extremely overwhelming. It is rightly called the Switzerland of Himachal Pradesh.
There is nothing much to do, except sit and relax. There are pony rides though, and phot-ops in traditional Himachali outfits.
It is best enjoyed early in the morning when the no of tourists is less. There are few dhabas which serve fast food.

"The Dream Destination"

  • Posted Jul 15, 2013
It is a dream destination , calm at night but busy and full of tourists at day. Lovely place to be with nature.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: Food is good at some selected places but you get a lot of opportunities if you are a fan of fast food . Ample places to roam around on a horse back and get yourself clicked with rabbits and in traditional dresses.

Activities & things to do: There are magic shows and other traditional entertainment activities where kids enjoy a lot .

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Warm clothes are required if you wish to stay for the night . An umbrella will also help.

"Amazing place to be"

  • Posted Jul 2, 2013
This place is somewhat an hour drive from dalhousie. There is not much to do but to relax and enjoy the beauty of the nature. Adventure sports in form of Paragliding is available to enjoy.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: No shopping available as such to do due to absence of mall roads in this locality as in case of dalhousie which is also very limited. Sightseeing is a good idea and you can visit nearby places.

Activities & things to do: Paragliding

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Suggest to take your own vehicle or hire one. Public transport is hardly available.
