This place is on the road of khajiar. You can visit this place before 6 clock. The entry pass of the cars are very high and lots of waiting period. You can walk in without entry fees.

Just drive past. Ugly tattered tents and wash lines of gypsies fill the beautiful black slopes of tall pines rolling down into the stream.

Call at +91 189 922 2639 or +91 189 922 7503. It's the number of DFO Chamba fur Kalatop FRH booking. Maybe you will be required to call 3/4 times before you can reach them for your booking.
