Khajjiar Lake

#Lake in Khajjiar

The beautiful lake is situated in the middle green Alpine forest between Dalhousie and Chamba Town. The most serene natural site, full of green grass which is covered almost 6 months of the year and when it opens up then it just glows. Pine trees all around the big huge field.

The placid lake is very clean and peaceful. You can play polo and golf here as well. You can easily spend 2-3 hours with your loved ones and just relax and admire the beauty of it.

The lake is the most visited place in Khajjiar which makes this place worth visiting at least once in a lifetime.

"Good place for weekend getaway. Not more. Roads are patchy n tiring. The lake has gone bad, black water n smelly. Ground is good to spend time along with trekking, paragliding n couple of temples. Local water is infectious so be careful to eat/drink. Use mineral water even for cooking. Nearest doctor/chemist 7 km away towards Chamba, though emergency medicines available at local confectionery store."

"Beautiful hill station near Dalhousie in Chamba District of Himachal Pradesh. If people (Locals and Tourists) and Government can focus towards cleanliness, then indeed it is Mini Switzerland. Food served is ok, it’s better to have snacks and have proper meals in Dalhousie which is around 28 Kms i.e. around 1-hour drive. Also there is Jagdamba Temple which is around 2 kilometres from Khajjiar. 81 feet high idol of Lord Shiva, clean quiet environment of temple and beauty of this place is a mesmerizing. If you are looking for accommodation, then prefer to stay in Banikhet which is around 15 minutes’ drive from Dalhousie or nearby place around Dalhousie to get better accommodation at reasonable rates."

"It's easy to imagine Khajjiar as a beautiful, sun-kissed meadow surrounded by hills and conifers with a lake in the centre. But you can only imagine it. The restaurants at one end, zorbing at another end, paragliding at yet another and people peddling photos in local attire all over the place have all but made it a shadow of what it could be. Even the lake is almost dried out. Yet, go with a strong imagination and a willingness to ignore the crowds and you'll see one of the most beautiful places around!"
