More on Kausani

Back in the olden days, Kausani was known as Valna. The town became famous in 1929 when Mahatma Gandhi made the village his temporary abode to finish his works on Anasakti Yoga. The place is also famous for the great Hindi poet Sumitranandan Pant. Mahatma Gandhi dubbed Kausani as “the Switzerland of India” owing to its natural beauty. Initially, the town was inhabited by the Kumaoni and Garhwali communities and was a part of the Almora district. In November 2000, Uttarakhand was created as a separate district and Kausani came to be a part of it.

Among the myriad adventure activities available in Kausani, trekking is one of the many favourites. The majestic mighty mountains around the tinsel town are covered with Oak and Pine trees and present a pretty picture. Higher up the altitude, a mesmerizing enthralling panoramic view of the Himalayan ranges can be seen. Some common trek routes from Kausani are Adi Kailash trek, Base Kausani trek and Bageshwar- Sunderdhunda trek. The place is a haven for nature’s lover, you can just choose to take a walk on the hardly dotted roads in the forests and soak in the aura and tranquillity of the beautiful hill station. Explore the very famous tea gardens of Kausani and lush green meadows and take back with you, a very wonderful memory home.

Kausani, an unspoken hill-town of Uttarakhand, lies 53 km away from Almora and 65 km from Kathgodam. It is best known for its surreal view of the great Himalayan ranges boasting the snow-draped peaks of Trishul and Nanda Devi. A fresh breeze of peace flows among the splendid hills of Garhwal Himalayas that are completely covered in the vegetation of Deodar and Pines.

Kausani is a small hill station where hotels and its restaurants serve food in many cuisines including continental, Indian, Chinese and some Kumaoni dishes as well. However, major restaurants are absent outside the hotels. One will find few dhabas and roadside eateries offering delicious food.

- Carry extra food and supplies with you, facilities are not present at proper intervals.- Winters are excruciatingly cold but beautiful at the same time, so carry heavy woolens if travelling during the season.- Make sure you have enough information beforehand of wherever you go sightseeing or have a guide with you.

Does not have its own airport and railway station, which makes it a bit difficult to access. The transport for travelling locally isn't well developed.
