Lying in the lap of the snow-capped Himalayas, the picturesque hill station of Kausani, in Uttarakhand, boasts a natural splendour that leaves one in awe. The perfect example of a hilly paradise, Kausani is nestled amidst deep green forests, crystal clear skies and many quaint lakes, hidden like gems in the wilderness. One can head over to Kausani for clear views of important peaks like Nanda Devi, Trishul and Panchachuli. In fact, one can see the ranges of snow-clad mountains stretching to about 350 km around the town.
Perched at a height of 1,890 m above sea level, Kausani is a haven for trekkers, who are greeted by clear and mesmerising views of meadows, waterfalls and the many pine forests that make up the profile of the region. The best time for adventure sports is after monsoons. The climate of Kausani ranges between cool and cold and if one wishes to avoid the cold, the best time to visit is between April to June and then between September and November. Though for those who like wispy winters and snowfalls, Kausani is a treat at any time of the year.
Kausani registered its place in history as more than just an average hill station when in 1929, Mahatma Gandhi came to stay for 14 days at the Anasakti Ashram and titled Kausani as 'Switzerland of India'. He was in the process of writing his book Anasakti Yoga when he visited here. This book is a Bhagwat Gita treatise. Another famous personality associated with Kausani is the popular Hindi poet Sumitra Nandan Pant, who was born here. A number of famous poems written by Pant were inspired by the natural beauty and vibrancy of this breathtaking place.
There is good connectivity by road through cars and buses. The nearest cities from where one can drive to Kausani include Delhi, Ranikhet, Nainital, Dehradun and Chandigarh.
