Khajjiar Lake And Ground Overview

Ranked 1 of 7 sightseeing in Khajjiar

The Khajjiar Lake and Ground can be reached via the Bakrota Hills from Dalhousie. On the way to the Kalatop Khajjiar Sanctuary, one can see the Lakkad Mandi and further down, the Khajjiar ground with the lake located centrally in it.

This spot is ideal for photography and has also featured in lots of movies. The lake is considered holy due to its long association with the idol of the Khajji Nag Temple. This perennial lake is fed by a number of tiny water streams.

Situated at a distance of 20 km from Dalhousie, the Khajjiar Lake covers an area of about 5000 sq yards. On the lake, some clusters of grasses and weeds have grown that appear like a floating island, and is the major attraction. The spot around the lake, situated at an elevation of 1950 m above sea level, is a popular picnicking area.

Khajjiar

The place is called the Switzerland of India. The views of background of the place is nice. There are so many things to ride and enjoy. The photographic background of the site seems to one stand on a foreign ground. There are Car parking zone and food available.

Like Dream

Visiting Khajiyar ground is looks like a dream coem true. It is one of the best locations of India. So many films shoot here. You can see lush green valley and enjoy horse riding, a walk to forest, listening music with local folk singers like Roshan Lalo. Time goes here like dream.

Natural garden surrounded by mountains

Khajjiar is called asMini switzerland because of this garden, the trees and lake which are fully natural and organised. The huge planes surrounded by hills and valleys. The ground is huge and best time is during summers when the grass is green and trees are fully grown. Hotels are mostly constructed beside the ground. EATABLE stalls are easily available so no worry of food over here. The grass in pic is white that's actually snow which is on the grass. Due droplets turned into snow. You can sit anywhere in the ground and can have drinks no restrictions at all. Good place for couples actually

Switzerland of India

The only reason you visit Khajjiar is because of Lake and Ground. Numerous activities to do there as well as fun games for your kids. You can just sit in a corner and enjoy the view of this scenic beauty. But yes do go for Paragliding which happens early morning and is an experience in itself.

Awesome place to be visited in the evening

Place is very much awesome than expected. It is good place for tourism for family. And also there are some rides for kids and also there is horse riding. Anytime rainfall can occur. Khajjiar Lake is drought now and it is Khajjiar Ground. Best time for visit is evening. Many people visits Khajjiar Ground or enjoy the beauty of Khajjiar Ground in evening. Khajjiar is some kilometres away from Dalhousie which is also a beautiful place. At Khajjiar must carry warm clothes because it is cool place. At Khajjiar there is a good hotel for stay and their food is also tasty. Service is very good, the name of hotel is Shinning Star. People who want to enjoy the natural beauty must visit Khajjiar in life.
