The Glade (6500 ft above sea level) sits on a small plateau, with a small stream-fed lake in the middle and thick forests along the perimeter.

Khajjiar Meadows

Khajjiar was named “Mini Switzerland of Himachal Pradesh” by the Swiss Ambassador on July 7, 1992.

Khajjiar Meadows

It has a rare combination of three ecosystems – lake, pastures and forests, all in one place.

    Beautiful place it is for sure! Though am a Himachali, haven’t been there yet for the simple reason that have been out of Himachal since completed my college at REC Hamirpur. Well, going thru ur post, am sure would plan a visit ASAP 🙂

    Savita…. I have never been to these parts of HP. I need to plan a trip and make it in the next couple of years. BTW do let me know if you can babysit my kids while we are traveling 🙂

      🙂 Nice to hear from you, Raj! Howz everything? Yeah, HP was an eye-opener for us; never knew it had sooo much. In fact, we have yet to visit the Lahaul Spiti and Kinnaur regions there. Will probably head there after we leave Leh.

    Just to share, I was quite excited and felt great, at the first instance on my first visit in 1995 to know that christening of Khajjiar as’Mini Switzerland’ having been done on 7th July .. happening to be my birthday …
    one falls in love with the pale …
    I just don’t remember .. as how many rolls I finished then .. just catching the beauty of the place… clicking even while waiting for bus to Dalhousie …
    One is at peace .. when there ..
