Khajjiar, a huge circular meadow, is ringed by the forest-covered slopes which are overlooked by the towering mountains. Smitten by its beauty, some enthusiastic tourists ended up calling it ‘mini Switzerland’ and that became its moniker. Khajjiar’s beauty and its proximity with Dalhousie has made it quite popular amongst package tourists, which means you can expect it to be crowded during season. But nature lovers shouldn’t get disappointed; walking away from the crowds towards the wooded slopes will get you that desired communion with the nature. If you like walking on wooded trails, opt to stay in Khajjiar; there are a few hotels and guesthouses.
Location: Khajjiar is just 24 km from Dalhousie.
