I would like to travel to Khajjiar (Mini swiss) or Dharamkot or maybe both, basis voice of friends. Need your expert advise and help on -

      - Planning an itinerary
      - This is going to be a budget vacation, so am keen to spend less, save more
      - Things to do
      - Weather updates
      - Etc. Etc.

      I would like your advice and suggestions on:

      --- what is the most preferable way to travel between destinations

      This place used to get some very good reviews but nothing that I can see that is recent. Is it still in operation and does anybody have any feedback on what it's like now. First entry I found was in an old Lonely Planet guide. Any feedback gratefully recieved. Excluding this I'm tempted to join the pilgrims at the golden temple itself. What is the position regarding leaving and returning to the dorms as I would probably want to wander off into the city for an evening meal. I'm assuming that there is a seperat enterance for the dorms as opposed to the temple?
