What a nice world is Khajjiar , did see one movie from there last year , forgot name ... totaly different India and small population , yep small population
Here is few words

Khajjiar, often called as India’s Switzerland, is a hill station in Chamba District of Himachal Pradesh. The hill station is picturesquely set in the midst of magnificent ‘Deodar’ forests. The clump of reeds and the green meadow add an exquisite charm to this place. A small plateau in its green turf of dense pine and Deodar forests along its fringes adds to the pastoral scenery. This offbeat place in India has the rarest combination of three eco systems. The lakes, the pastures and the forests come together to make a visit to this place a unique experience. Hence, it is also popularly called the Mini Switzerland of Himachal Pradesh.

Khajjiar sits on a small plateau with a small stream-fed lake in the middle that has been covered over with weeds. The hill station is surrounded by green meadows and dense forests. It is about 6,500 feet (2,000 m) above sea level in the foothills of the Dhauladhar ranges of the Western Himalayas and snowy peaks can be seen in the distance.It is part of the Kalatop Khajjiar Sanctuary.

On 7 July 1992, Mr. Willy T. Blazer, Vice Counselor and Head of Chancery of Switzerland in India brought Khajjiar on the world tourism map by christening it “Mini Switzerland”. He also put a sign board of a yellow Swiss hiking footpath showing Khajjiar’s distance from the Swiss capital Berne-6194 km.

But Himachal pradesh is a perfect description,I have never been to Himachal Pradesh but it seems on weekends people from Delhi go there its just 3-4 hour drive,people leave on a Friday evening enjoy a short vacation and get back by Sunday evening,definitely a place to see actually Kashmiri is more a perfect comparison with Switzerland but due to the dispute no one goes there especially foreigners,actually Kashmir is described as heaven on earth,I have been to Kashmiri a long time ago its beyond imagination.

Better off not going.

Fall from cruise ship, shark eat you.

Plane fall from sky, shark eat you.

Walk on beach, tide come in, shark eat you.

Drive car, crash off bridge, shark eat you.

Stay home and do surveys. That way you won't be ate by shark.

Valerie it is noting wrong if shark ate us , we ate shark , shark ate us it is ok

Almost 100 million sharks are being killed each year, with fishing rates outstripping the ability of populations to recover, scientists have estimated.
We are now the predators. Humans have mounted an unrelenting assault on sharks, and their numbers are crashing throughout the world's oceans

Let us hope more shark will ate humans and their number recover back to normal :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Let that happen because other creatures have suffered their maximum due to the cruelities of man towards nature.
