After enjoying the greenery and freshness of the forest, head towards Khajjiar Lake.

Khajjiar is 10 km uphill from Kalatop and this is the place which attracts tourists to Dalhousie. This is also called Mini-Switzerland and it does appear to be like that when it is covered with snow. The landscape of this place is hard to explain in mere words and it is best to experience it.

There are restaurants nearby where you can have your lunch along with the mesmerizing views of the landscape.
