Located 19 kms. away from Pauri at an altitude of 1700 m, Khirsu is a peaceful spot, free from pollution. The snow covered mountains of Khirsu offers a panoramic view of the central Himalayas and attracts a large number of tourists. From here one can get a clear view of many named and unnamed peaks. The tranquility of the adjoining thick Oak and Deodar forests and people orchards, is broken only by chirping of birds. The ancient temple of Ghandiyal Devta in the vicinity is well worth a visit. Accommodation is available at Tourist rest house and Forest rest house.
