Khirsu is a small village about 15 kms from Pauri Garhwal and 125 kms from Lansdowne. Though there are bus services to this place we took a private SUV and visited the place from Lansdowne in June 2014. The hotel run by the Uttaranchal Government is located at a vantage point with a beautiful view of the forest and the... More

Excellent place near Pauri with diving beauty. I visited in mid October 2014 with family. One who loves nature and calmness he should visit the place. Only drawback of this place is hotel accommodation. Just one ok type private hotel and GMVN Tourist lodge are there.

The park is neat and with excellent view of mountains. There are lots of swings and slides for kids to enjoy. Many birds were found around and it was lovely to pick a spot and lie down for hours together.

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.
