Ideal Time: 2-3 hours
Thick deodar foliage, a plethora of wildlife, snowcapped mountains, carpets of verdant grasslands and easy on the eye streams of fresh water make up the Kalatop Khajjiar Sanctuary. Also called the Kalatop Wildlife Sanctuary, it is located in the picturesque hilly Chambal district of Himachal Pradesh. The name Kalatop means 'black cap', which probably refers to the thick black forest cover on the highest hilltop in the sanctuary. Situated a few kilometres away from the Chamba dam and Chamera reservoir on the river Ravi, it is known to be rich in flora and fauna. Hundreds of small streams of freshwater empty themselves into the Ravi river to the north of the sanctuary. Kalatop Wildlife Sanctuary is the perfect weekend getaway destination, with very few other places coming close to its natural charm.
The well laid out trekking and hiking trails in the Kalatop Khajjiar Sanctuary offer a pristine, mesmerizing experience with nature and are arguably the best means to explore the beautiful untouched forests of the park area. Views of the towering and immaculate Pir Panjal range from the enigmatic Kalatop Wildlife Sanctuary resthouse is a breathtaking sight to immerse yourself in. The countryside landscape is sure to provide you with a sense of astonishment and wonder. Over the years, it has gained popularity as an extremely scenic picnic spot and a great place for trekking and nature walks.
