Khirsu is a small of paradise in Pauri garhwal. As we all know Garhwal is Devbhumi where every tourist destination is somehow related to any God / holy place with some divine story linked to it. But I guess Khirsu is a real exception …………. Didn’t find any heavenly connection but it offer incredible view of mighty Himalayan peaks. Khirsu... More

Dont expect luxury though rooms are clean, hot water,... More

Its a small village; situated near to the mother town of Pauri Garwhal ; Pauri (18 km). Few tents & a tourist bungalow is available for public. You might need to book it in prior to stay &... More

In a suddenly planned trip from Meerut by road (Hatchback car) to Pauri Garhwal between 9th-12th Feb 2013, Khirsu (in the neighborhood) was termed as one of the top attractions in words of the locals. I was with my wife and kid (3 years) and was hoping for an amazing , thrilling experience. On the contrary, the visit to Pauri... More

The basic room/ hut facilities are available with restrictive supply of water and electrical power. An alternative place to stay is the forest bungalow. The food is of acceptable quality to the tourists. the view... More

Khirsu is sleepy serene. full of forested walks, and colourful birds. Chaukhamba and Kedarnath peaks are tantalizingly close. With great local people, and hospitable GMVN staffs its a must visit place in Gahrwal. Just relax there for 2-3 days.

Khirsu would basically mean the GMVN tourist rest house. The silence and the openness of the property is very soothing. Be warned that the cottages do not have any fans, and the afternoon in May was uncomfortable. With flies swarming, the door could not be kept open, and the sun was strong. There is also water shortage, but one has... More

Khirsu does not offer the big city facilities but if u r looking for that virgin hill beauty then definetely u should not skip this. this is still not much travelled by tourists but offers breathtaking views.

Just wanted to highlight this pleasant trip to Khirsu a small hamlet in the hills near Pauri about which much has not been written anywhere. In the 3rd week of August I decided to take a few days off from work and drive down to Lansdowne and Khirsu. I had the challenge of taking my two little daughters with the... More
