Getting to Khajjiar
Well there are lots of ways to get there. If you prefer the time saving way of travelling then take the airplane. There is daily flights for Dharamshala from Delhi and then you can hire a taxi from the airport to take you to Khajjiar. If you like train journeys then take a train to Pathankot from Delhi and then take a cab, or you can take an overnight bus journey to Dharamshala again from Delhi and then hire a cab.But if you are like me who prefers long drives then you can hire a car. We went in our own car and we did a lot of break journey. We started around 6 in the morning and by 5-5:30 we reached Palampur, another beautiful place. But since we were really short on time we couldn’t see much except the Tashi Jeong Monastery. It is a nice monastery which belongs to the Tibetan refugees.We stayed the night there and we left for Dharamshala the next day. On the way we saw some black bears kept in an enclosed area which I guess belonged to zoo but we didn’t really get to see that. We also saw a beautiful church where a monument was erected for James Bruce, Viceroy of India, who died during the discharge of his duties.On reaching Dharamshala we went to the Tsulag Khang complex which was built in 1959 when His Holiness Dalai Lama arrived in India. It houses the famous Namgyal Monastery, a museum, a book shop, a library, a coffee shop and the private residence of the Dalai Lama. We were a little unlucky as during our visit, his Holiness was not in town. Dharamshala is a wonderful town with a charm of its own. The next day we went to Dalhousie. Dalhousie is a really nice place as well. There we saw two beautiful churches of St. John’s and St. Francis. Then we left for our final destination of the tour ‘Khajjiar’.anwesha
