Khajjiar - A Himalayan Hideaway
Dalhousie (6000+ ft asl) and Khajjiar (6000+ ft asl) are twin destinations, 27 kms apart.
If Dalhousie has a colonial character and little bit touristy then Khajjiar is completely idyllic and off-beat. Guests do a day visit from Dalhousie (27 kms) to Khajjiar and Chamba (22 kms). Drive is scenic. Khajjiar is a lake which dries out into nature meadow like landscape which is very pleasing. There are wooded walks, horse rides on offer and a few restaurants around.
If you don't find snow in Dalhousie in Winter then there is a good chance that you'd find it enroute to Khajjiar. Khajjiar enjoys excellent snow peak views and therefore makes for a very relaxing stay.
Khajjiar lies enroute from Dalhousie to Chamba and guests staying here make a day visit to Chamba and Dalhousie.
Hotel stays in Khajjiar aren't most luxurious and can be classified as comfortable or mid-segment.
