So, adventure is your staple diet when you are on a trip to a destination? Well, the excitement in that domain will refuse to die away if you are in Khajjiar. Options are plenty, and are sure to set your adrenaline rushing. Let us have a look.

  • Trekking

    The magnificent ranges of Dhauladhar mountains are ideal for trekking expeditions. Trekking excursions to Kalatope Sanctuary, Dalhousie and Chamba are very popular. Moreover, the activity is not very difficult or tiring, and can be undertaken by most age-groups. If you have a bit of experience, you don’t even require assistance.
    Although, in case you do need help, there are many trekking packages available out there. Guides, equipment, maps and pack-animals are all available in abundance. For example, you can contact
    Sun Holidays in advance at +91-011-45509123 or Atal Bihari Vajpayee Institute of Mountaineering and Allied Sports at their Bharmour office: 01895-225036. There are also a number of old rest-houses known as 'dak bunglows' on the routes that you can book. The Forest Rest Houses can also be booked through the area's Divisional Forest Officer (DFO) (Telephone: +91-1899-222239).
    The sky-touching wonders of
    Bakrota Hills on the way to Dalhousie are also accessible once you have put your trekking shoes on. The passage from the village Lakarmandi inside Kalatope is an especially preferred route for trekkers.
  • Horse Riding

    On a clear day, horse riding is an amazing idea to give vent to your adventurous streak. The religious abode of Lord Shiva, Mountain Kailash can be reached through a scenic ride on a well-trained horse. There are rides available even around Khajjiar Lake, which are likely to cost you somewhere between INR 100 to INR 200.
    Notably, horse-riding is a popular means of transport in the area both among tourists and the locals. You can contact the local guides for organizing your trips. They charge reasonable fares, which can be talked out in advance. You don’t need to worry about your safety, as the horses and ponies are generally very well-trained and experienced for such tasks.
  • Zorbing

    This upcoming adventure-sport involves you rolling downhill across a levelled slope trapped in a transparent orb or sphere. The picturesque slopes in the meadows of Khajjiar are an ideal site to enjoy these rides.
    Zorbing is a commercial sport and you need to consult trainers or guides or the local tour operators in order to undertake this activity. Per person, the cost comes to anywhere between INR 200 to INR 300 in Khajjiar.

Aren’t you already packing your sports kit? Well, its always good to be prepared.
