Khajjiar can be done from Dalhousie in a day trip. The itinerary would be Dalhousie - Kalatop - Khajjiar - Dalhousie. It is a small valley, you can refer that as a tiny edition of Gulmarg. You can enjoy the valley for few hours with some activities available there. Overnight stay is not required.

Hi Nitinyo_11,

If you are going by car then prefer to stay the night at Khajjiar. Khajjiar is also called the switzerland of India. U need only 1 day to see it as it is just a picnic spot but it is preferred if u can stay longer. In Dalhousie u can spend 2-3 nights. One day for seeing Dalhousie, second day for local sight seeing as Panjpula, Tibetan Village, Kalatop Wildlife Sanctuary, 4 Churches, Kalatop, Subhash Baoli, Satdhara etc.

Hope this helped! I wont be able to answer further queries as I am travelling for next 2 days. So pls wait!
