Mini Switzerland of Himachal


Himachal is the full of stunning hill station and khajjiar is one of the dKhajjiarindiaramatic hill stations, today I am going to talking about. Khajjiar is a hill station in the Chamba district, Himachal Pradesh (INDIA), located about 24 km from Dalhousie. Khajjiar is also famous for the name of mini Switzerland.

It is also referred to as “Gulmarg” of Himachal Pradesh. The glade surrounded by Pine and Devdar forest has the charm of a lake in its midst. Khajjiar has a rare combination of ecosystems: lake, pasture & forest, all in single place. This place like is a magical glory. The lake remains filled with water in all the seasons and requires no rain water for survival.

One of the most popular places seeing in khajjiar is “Khajinag temple”. A little away from the lake is the temple. This temple is also called the Golden Devi temple, as it is decorated with a golden dome and spire. Pilgrims visiting the Chamba vallKhajjiar5ey often come to this temple.

The climate of Khajjiar is alpine summers (April-June) are mild & winters (November-February) are icy & bitter. In winter, the temperature drops around freezing point with snowfall & heavy woolens are necessary. In summer, the climate is mild & light woolens / cottons are recommended. March to June is the finest time to vacation this India’s Switzerland or Mini Switzerland.
