Harsil - The Nature's Blessings

Harsil is an unexplored beauty of Garhwal Himalayas. Situated on the way to Gangotri, at a distance of nearly 75 Kms from Uttarkashi, this sleepy hamlet offers immaculate beauty of the Himalayas, at an impressive height of 2620 meters above the sea-level. It is surrounded by the breathtaking splendour of the majestic Himalayan peaks.

Harsil is also known as a major apple growing Zone. A Britisher, Mr. Wilson planted here the first apple tree in the 19th Century. His Cottage was still a major attraction in the area till a major fire destroyed the cottage.
Situated amidst the incredible beauty of mountain peaks, Harsil is counted amongst some of the most beautiful places in the Garhwal region.
Harsil has a cool climate throughout and gets snow bound between December and March.

Harsil is a cantonment area. So, it is restricted for the foreign tourists. Apart from being at the way to Gangotri, it's also the entry point to the Kinnaur Himalayas in the Himachal Pradesh.
