Nice information about Pauri . This place is one of the best hill stations in Uttarakhand. There is tall pine and deodar trees around the town and this place offer a beautiful panoramic view of Himalaya.

- Do wear a life jacket while indulging in activities like fishing and boating and rafting.- Winters are excruciatingly cold but beautiful at the same time, so carry heavy woolens if travelling during the season.- Avoid travelling during monsoon season as the area faces excessive landslide and poor road conditions.

Review for Kandoliya, Pauri Garhwal

Khirsu is a small village located in Uttarakhand. I really enjoyed myself in Khirsu and felt like being nurtured by nature. I visited many apple orchards and viewpoints . One can clearly see the snow-capped peaks of Himalayas in Khirsu. There many beautiful hotels which serve hot and spicy dishes in compliance with the chilly weather. I think everyone visiting Dehradun should give this place a shot for a one day trip.
