“My hometown near Pauri Garhwal, Uttrakhand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2011

Recently I visited my hometown in Uttrakhand, village Dhamund after few years of hectic stressful life in the city. The village is nestled in the Garhwal hills and is exactly in the middle of Devprayag and Pauri. Amazing weather, amazing sights, panoramic views, pure mineral water from nature's lap and plenty of Oxygen to energize one's soul and heart. One just feels like relaxing, relaxing and relaxing...especially under the shade of huge Pine, Peepal and Mango trees.

I love this place and long for spending all of my time here. Village is surrounded by scenic beauty and motor able distance of Rishikesh, Devprayag, Pauri, Shreekhal, Khirsu, new Pauri etc. Devprayag offers opportunity to take a dip in the holy sangam (merger point of river Alaknanda which flows quitely and Bhagirathi which rushes in transforming into river Ganges which passing through the Rishikesh and Haridwar). Pali Khal and Sabderkhal are the small town markets which sells everything needed for ones living. Brief walk from Pali Khal towards Pauri gives a breathtaking view of Himalyan range (in clear weather). The cold wind gushes and envelopes you making you feel heavenly. At Pali Khal you can experience the beautiful sunset everyday...golden sun kissed mountains! Shreekhal is also a place to be in....it is quite and serene offering a fantastic 360 degree view of high hills and tons of mint fresh air. The road from Pali Khal to Pauri or Shreekhal is newly laid offering a smooth ride like a butter surface.

The place is great if you are looking for peace, seclusion, panoramic view, great all heal weather, recuperation, zero stress....head to this part of Garhwal....unexploited, few people and more for less. Days are pleasant nights are cold....One never feels tired....good sleep, jungle walks, hill walks ascending descending into the mountain tops and foothills, fresh air and pollution free environment.....jungles and much more! Star gazing in the sheer darkness of night is a thrilling experience...one can see the twinkling in the hills also when all the village homes switch on their lights....it is likes stars have descended into the mountains. Nights are very quiet and very dark...sound waves travel fast and people can hear you even from a distance…slightest of noises can be easily heard. Sitting out in the night and seeing the meals being cooked in a pure organic way with gup-shup (gossiping) with your near and dear ones is a perfect way to unwind and experience the nature! This is a true lap of nature which comforts ones soul.
I am proud to belong to Uttrakhand.....I love the Devbhumi (place of God)

May Uttrakhand blossom to be the Best!

“Small up hill Village/town with scenic beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2010

We were in Pauri last year in the month of Nov ( Last week) We travelled from Lands Down to Pauri, Reached Pauri by around 2 pm and our booking were in Gadhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam, Since it was not a season to Travel , the GMVN rest house was not 100% booked, We received a very good attention form the staff there, Weather was Chilly even in the afternoon but we could see a Entire range of about 200 KM East west Himalayen Range from Gangotri to Even Trishul , Possiblly Panchchuli too

Pauri is a excellent place to have a stay of about 2 gays or so and then go to Khirsu to have a closer view of Nanadevi and Choukhamba Peaks

Pauri is good town with all basic needs available there, Staff of GMVN is so good that they will help you with what ever you ask for.

Secondly the season we travel is always helpful, not many travel in these months but if you want to explore all the region without much of a rush do travel in off season,

Going to A hill station and not enjoying the chilly weather, then what is the use of it? In season time in May- July the temp are about 20%+ and rush hour every where,I travel for leisure , pleasure and to chill

So liked this place , I would like to go again
