On a clear day, you can see the Mountain Kailash from Khajjiar ground. You can also enjoy the horse riding here. Some local people are engaged in this business and you can ride the whole Khajjiar ground (from outside) for a nominal charge. The riding is very enjoyable, also the horses are well trained and do not scare you away. It does make sound sense to be aware of the different accommodation options near the horse riding at khajjiar lake as this helps save a lot of time. For instance, if visiting horse riding at khajjiar lake is the main agenda of your trip, you will definitely prefer to stay at some nearby place rather than spend half your day on travelling to and fro.
22 Kms from the township Khajjiar is situated in a valley surrounded by huge mountains on all sides. It is like a huge stadium and the pine and deodar trees are like spectators and cheer leaders around the stadium gathered to watch a match. The lavish green valley of Khajjiar is a perfect place for the game of cricket but here there was an altogether different ball game called Zorbing.
Khajjiar - (1951m) : Just 27-km from Dhoudar the beautiful little plain of Khajjiar is one of the favourite retreats for visitors. The saucer-shaped meadow, ringed by pines, has a lake set in the middle, complete with a floating bland. A little golden-spired temple of Khajjinag belonging to the 12th century and a picturesque golf course complete this pretty picture. A stunning valley with a spring in the middle, while being quite beautiful, it gets littered with trash in the peak season of July when a massive number of tourists come. Known as the 'Switzerland of India' for the meadowy look.
Dainkund Walk : A gentle, sloping walk near an Air Force base in Dalhousie, leading to a Hindu temple.
Upper Bakrota : The highest area in Dalhousie, it has a number of estates, a residential school, and an Army barracks at the top. The area is circled by a road called Bakrota Walk, on the way to Khajjiar which ends at Alah Water Tank. It was the preferred destination of the landed gentry of Punjab during the Raj, now populated by similar residents from the new India. Some of the houses are worth seeing, but are mostly on private gated estates.
Kala Tope Rest House : It's on the way to Khajjiar at the toll barrier for Kala Tope, a road to the left of the barrier leads to the government rest house, a nice quiet spot and a great place for a picnic. The 3-km route through dense pine forests from Lakkadmandi to Kala Tope is simply exhilarating. No cars are allowed on this 3-km route.
Ganji Pahadi Walk : It is called Ganji Pahadi (ganji means bald, pahadi means hill) because there are no trees on the summit of the hill and it looks like it's got a bald patch at the top. You can ask a local how to get there. It is a long walk of at least an hour, but quite pleasant.
