Khajjiar lake, Khajjiar Overview

Situated in the Chambal district, the scenic Khajjiar Lake is perched on a massive height of 1920 meters and presents a picture-perfect bird's eye view of the surrounding valley. Hailed as 'Mini Swiss', Khajjiar is famous for its paragliding and horse riding activities.

The waters of Khajjiar Lake sparkle against the blue of the sky, and you can enjoy it in a number of interesting ways - take a walk through the landscape as the sun goes down, or visit the Khajji Nag temple which features intricate wood carvings and a gilded dome. If you're lucky and the sky is clear, you can also catch a glimpse of Mount Kailash from Khajjiar Lake.

Dedicated to Khajji Nag or the Lord of the Serpents, this is believed to be the holiest temple in the state of Himachal, and by association, the Khajjiar Lake is also greatly revered. The construction of the temple is simple and is a subtle reflection of both Hindu and Muslim architecture. Made out of wood, the Khajji Nag temple features the statues of Lord Shiva and Goddess Hidimba while the inner sanctum houses the hanging images of the Pandavas defeating the Kauravas in the epic battle of Mahabharata.
