Often referred to as the 'mini-Switzerland of India', Khajjiar is a town situated in the Chamba
district. Khajjiar is 24 km away from Dalhousie. The vast stretches of dense forests and green meadows constitute the natural beauty of Khajjiar. And the pleasant climate amplifies the effect.
Khajjiar is also known for its nine-hole golf course which is nestled amid lush greenery and a breathtaking landscape.
Khajjiar is famous for the popular Khajji Naga shrine dedicated to the serpent god from which the name is believed to have been derived. The comparison came into his mind due to the striking topographical resemblance of the place with Switzerland.
This region is less explored compared to other areas of Dalhousie. So forest trailing, wildlife safari, and picnics are so much fun here. Khajjiar is also famous for various adventure sports like trekking, camping, paragliding, horse riding, and zorbing.
The mesmerizing beauty of this place has greatly influenced and inspired many kingdoms throughout the years, including the Rajputs and Mughals.
The wide grassy areas that meet dense forests of deodar and cedar forests, with cottages dotting them at occasional intervals, lend them an appearance similar to the Swiss countryside.
