“Family delight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

Must visit place if you are visiting chmba or dalhoisie. My european memories were back when I reached there. Entire landsape is scenic - cheddar trees, big grass lawn, small lake at middle of the lawn. Multiple activites in the area - horse riding, kids can play with rabbits, bubble ball etc.
TIP - carry your own food. not many good places to eat.

“Overrated Place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

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

“good Scenic View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

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.

“Good if you want to do local hikes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

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!
