Khirsu Travel

The snow-laden mountains of Khirsu tempt the tourist in the winters, while the panoramic view of the central Himalayas attracts tourists in the summers, when one can get a clear view of 300 named & unnamed peaks. Located 19 kms away from Pauri at an altitude of 1700 meters, Khirsu is a peaceful spot, free from pollution. Only chirping birds break the tranquility of the adjoining thick oak and deodar forests and apple orchards. The ancient temple of Ghadiyal Devta in the vicinity is well worth a visit.
