Pauri, Uttrakhand
PauriIf you are looking for a laidback holiday in the Himalayas, Pauri is an ideal destination. Pauri is a small town and headquarters of Pauri district in the state of Uttarakhand. It is located some 350 km north of Delhi. The highlight of visiting Pauri is the 180 degree views of the Himalayas the town offers. It is located at an altitude of 1814 meters above sea level.

Once you visit Pauri, you’ll love the town for its relaxed ambience and breathtaking views. It offers panoramic view of the snow laden mountains of Neelkanth, Chaukhamba, Nandadevi, Trisul, and various other Himalayan peaks. There is not much to do in Pauri except taking long walks and appreciating the views and simple local folks that you meet in the town.

If you are religiously inclined, Pauri is home to a number of ancient temples such as Kyunkaleswar Mahadev, Kandoliya, Nagdev, Lakshmi-Narayan Mandir and Hanuman Mandir. Devotees from the surrounding villages throng these temples during annual festivals like Shivratri.

When in Pauri, one can visit Kandoliya, which is two kilometer from the Pauri town. It is known for the temple of Kandoliya Devta, a folk deity, which is located on the Lansdowne road amidst scenic surroundings. Chaukhamba View Point is another popular tourist site that you can visit. The 8th century Kyunkaleshwar Mahadev temple is another highlight of the town, which provides breathtaking views of the snow-clad peaks.

Since Pauri has still to catch as a popular tourist destination, there are not many places to stay in Pauri. There are limited hotels in Pauri, which cater to the handful of travellers who visit Pauri during summer months.  Pauri has mostly budget hotels, which offer basic facilities to tourists. One can also stay at the tourist rest house in Pauri, which is managed by Garhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam Ltd.

Day trips can be organized to Khirsu, 19 km from Pauri. It is a beautiful resort, which is located at a height of 1700 meters above sea level. Khirsu offers breathtaking views of the Himalyan peaks. The most interesting part of visiting Khirsu is the road itself, which passes through the thick oak and deodar forests. Jwalpa Devi, 34 km away from Pauri on Kotdwar Road is a popular temple, which comes alive during Navratras.
