Perched at an altitude of 1700m from the sea level, at a distance of 365 kms from New Delhi, 155 kms from Haridwar and 115 kms from the nearest railway station of Kotdwar is a small yet beautiful, quaint little hill station of Khirsu. Nestled among the forests of oaks, deodars and apple orchards, Khirsu offers a spectacular panoramic view of the Himalayas. Situated in the Pauri- Garhwal district of Uttarakhand, this place is a must visit to the mountain lovers. Khirsu is not known to many and hence is bliss to the travelers who seek peace and tranquility. One can experience the majestic view of the Himalayan peaks like Trishul, Chaukhamba, Kedar, Gangotri etc.

Where to stay

Accommodation is not plenty in Khirsu, the best option being the GMVN tourist rest house which provides a comfortable stay in rooms as well as cottages. From the rest house complex one can watch the breathtaking view of the Himalayas.

Places to visit

There is a temple dedicated to Ghandiyal Devi very close to the rest house. One can visit Pauri, a big hill-town just 15kms from here. Khirsu experiences snowfall during winters and is very cold then. Summers are pleasant.
