Regarded as the mini Switzerland of India, Khajjiar is more picturesque and idyllic than how they appear on photos. Once you get there, you’ll realize how beautifully it’s nestled between the mountains, with an alluring lake in the center of the landscape. The green spread, horse stables and a private house just before the pine trees make the place resembles the ones you’ve only seen on postcards. Situated in Dalhousie at around 25 kilometers from the prime area, the place also has a board that directs towards Switzerland and reads 6194 kilometers. You can also find activities like zorping and paragliding here.
