Khajjiar has been one of my favorite destinations since I stepped among the clouds there for the very first time. I stood there in the middle of this huge ground and all I could see were clouds and clouds only. As I mentioned, the ground is very massive which makes it a perfect picnic spot. You can take a long walk, get a horse ride, eat snacks from the local vendors there and spend the whole day having the time of your life. I would recommend it for everyone as I do think that experiencing this is a must at least once in a lifetime.
Take along woolen clothes when travelling between October and Feburary.
Nice place people say it mini Switzerland, yes it is. Go around Dec to Feb everything is covered with snow. Paragliding and Zorbing are must when u visit the place

It has been commercialised over the past few years and over-exploited as a tourist destination.
