I went in October 2012 when it was off season. The lake almost dried up and looked like dirty pond. People said it would be covered in snow in December. But this was definitely a touristy places crowed with families spending time lazing out. The views were good specially the backdrop. But travelling alone spending 1K for cab and ending up there was not a great thing to do. Not a place for travellers . It a tourist place

we just went to dalhouise to see Khajjiar the Switzerland of India very disappointed Place. but you can say its the only a place in dalhousie to see. The nature's beauty is mind blowing.but as such there is nothing like a memorable moment.

Khajjiar located 25 km from Gandhi chowk is a good place but again ill maintained. Whole view is awesome but you can see all animals dungs there.

A good place like should be properly maintained. It has hotel and restaurants nearby, I would prefer to eat from thela outside rather than restaurant as they are good.

If you are staying in Dalhousie and drive all the way here, the view is not that worth the drive. You can pretty much get the same view from Dalhousie. The lake is a more like a pond (at least when I visited in June, and don't expect any difference even if it rains). There is definitely nothing to do if you decide to stay here. The only thing I heard is there are smaller hikes which begin here, so if you plan to do that, it is the only reason to drive all the way there(would rather spend more time at kalatop). Very commercial, not a calm and quiet place as I has expected. I would not call this mini-Switzerland. There are many prettier places in India which are similar to or more beautiful than Switzerland.
Happy Traveling!

This was an amazing visit.... It is very beautiful and no wonder is called the Mini Switzerland... The lake is considerably small, but the view from this location is majestic. The place is surrounded by green meadows and dense forest. You can enjoy horse rides and also have some memorable pictures clicked here in traditional Himachal Clothes.
