Khajjiar is the Playing field of Himachal Pradesh due to its sporadic advent and its geographical bearings.It takes half an hour from Dalhousie to arrive at this splendid abode and I chose December month to visit this stead.The luscious green meadows and the presence of deodar,pine forests and the lake covered with weeds makes it unexampled and exclusive among others and rated very profoundly and sometimes known as the Mini Switzerland of India.Khajjiar can be reached by car from Pathankot via Dalhousie by covering a distance of around four hours.The attraction and panorama of Khajjiar is unique and not found in any corner of the country which makes it really supreme and extraordinary.
Teenagers enjoy the fascination of paragliding,saucering and flying in this sphere with travelers coming from across the world to enjoy its grandeur and eminence.Prominent hill stations around the domain are Dalhousie and Dharamshala and there is also the Kalatop Khajjiar sanctuary to add to its significance and distinction.I was quite fortuitous and blessed to buckle the gravity and the splendor of the Dhauladhar ranges from the hamlet and the clear weather played a crucial role in ensorcelling our mind and heart.Khajjiar is a place for adventure and wildlife enthusiasts across the country to make an attempt to conquer this part of Himachal and contrive unforgettable memories.
It was encouraging for me and my courtiers to enjoy the favorable taste of the food available for travelers at reasonable prices and there were good home stays and lodges available across the proximity without much altercation.The treks of Chamba and Dainkund are very salient and striking for mountaineers and hardcore trekkers across the globe and I found Khajjiar the playing field and very decoying for any individual to get lost in mountain wilderness and adventure.
When I reached there,it was almost 2 pm in the afternoon and I was mesmerized to see the blue brackish water lake shining amidst the snow clad mountains of the Trans Himalayan region.The. colour of the mountains were mostly brownish and blackish but some were even chocolate brown and orangish in actualization.The peaks were easily discernible and very close to our contact and impact and we embraced the fact that the weather was crystal clear and free from dark clouds.
There were tents at moderate prices available for travellers ranging from high quality to ordinary and the food was awesome and had a great taste of the region and people very hospitable and kind enough.The lake became more famous in India after the 3 idiots shooting and some other renowned Bollywood movies launched in the recent years.The distinguished varieties of peaks around the lake makes it look more fascinating and ravishing.We can compare the color of the lake with the cool blue drink available in cafe coffee day outlets and changes with the color of the sky.
The lake has boats that exchanges goods between the neighboring countries and soldiers protecting the territory.The lake looks very artistic in dusk and makes a momentous appearance turning green to blackish.We stayed two days backpacking around the region and the surroundings catching glimpse of all the mountain peaks around it and taking weird photographs.It was enthralling and spellbinding for us to patrol this corner of the Trans Himalayan territory and contrive ravishing and unforgettable memories to last for a decade.
Dharamsala is the only unrivaled hill station in India with a cricket stadium to its name.Domestic and international matches are hosted often in a year between Indian neighbouring and European nations.The cricket stadium is situated in the center of the sphere which is a matter of pride and heritage of the region making it special and unique among other neighbouring hill stations. The best time to visit the Land of Lamas would be December and January when snowfall begins to show its charm and fascination to the travelers.
The unrivaled hill station of Dharamsala is situated in the upper extremities of the Kangra valley with dense forests, pine trees and rhododendrons surrounding the locality.There have been lot of monastries built by the Tibetian pilgrims across centuries and there are places of spiritual wisdom around the region.I visited the province with one of my friend in a chilled winter morning traveling by a bus from Delhi which took around 10-12 hours to reach the haven.
Places of interest around Dharamashala are Mcleodganj,Tibetian monasteries and the hill top of Triund.The food has the local taste of Tibetians and appreciated and acknowledged by travelers across the globe.Temperature mostly remains tropical throughout the year and the Buddhist monasteries are opened for visit paying a tribute to the religion.The Dhauladhar and the Pir Panjal ranges are visible from Dharmashala and the Triund trek remains popular among mountaineers due to the presence of Bhagsu waterfalls in the way and the snow clad peaks of the Dhauladhar ranges.Dharamsala and Mcleodganj remains very crowded these days due to the flurry of tourists from all over the world to pay homage to the religion Buddhism and meditate for peace and prosperity.
It’s tough and challenging for individuals living under the sheath of the brownish mountains of the Trans Himalayan region when there is nothing much left for them to do rather than building their small wooden houses,making proper planning for planting their own natural and fundamental ways of farming and vegetation.
When I traversed through these rocky mountains of the region I saw something unique and a landscape which I had never witnessed before in my entire life.Tough and hardy people making a living under these mountains and maintaining the vegetal is something to praise for and be proud of irrespective of the difficulty penetrating across the region.The mountains became brownish red due to the scorching effect of the sun and their appearance became very terrifying and alarming.One landslide or earthquake could change the entire scenario prevailing in the region and could ruin the lives of hundreds living in the habitat.
These people are living there for hundreds of years and thanks to the entire community and the ecosystem for being kind and gentle towards these inhabitants.It requires tremendous perseverance,infinite patience and hardships to confront to the circumstances prevalent in the region.Irrespective of these adversities and grievances the people live there celebrating the famous Kumbh Mela of Himalayas and maintain a resilient and cohesive lifestyle not led my many and something to remember and be proud of the region and the inhabitants.
