We were a group of six which visited this place in April 2013. Reviews and pictures were good, so we decided to pass by Dalhousie and came to Khajjiar directly from Pathankot for a 2 day stay, in spite of some people remarking that this was not a place to stay in the night. And boy, how right we were!
It was raining intermittently when we reached. Everyone of us was amazed at the wonderful sight which was very different from what we had ever seen in India, and in spite of the fact that I and my wife Sushmita had seen pictures of this place on the net earlier.
The real fun, for us, were the early morning walks on the meadow and near the lake, as also on the road that skirted the meadow. The deodar trees were a treat to watch. In fact, many like us can stay long at this place by just absorbing the tremendous beauty that is at store there.
Not many hotels, and that is because people still treat this as a fun place to visit in the morning to return back when the sun sets. That, according to me, is the biggest folly they make.
