Kausani is one of the most charming hill towns in Uttarakhand, which is nestled at 1890 m above sea level. Kausani offers panoramic views of the snowcapped Himalayas and spectacular sunrise and sunsets with such elevation. The hill town is an ideal getaway for a weekend where one can get away from the hustle-bustle of cities. The green cover of pine trees and lush forests offers fresh air.
Kausani’s blessed ambiance has earned it praise from every visitor. The pictorial setting is the birthplace of the famous Hindi poet Sumitra Nandan Pant. He wrote some of his memorable poems in praise of this earthly paradise. The peaceful ambiance is said to have also inspired the Father of the Nation. In 1929, Mahatma Gandhi stayed here for 14 days at the Anasakti Ashram. Greatly impressed by its environs, he gave the hill town the ‘Switzerland of India’ sobriquet.
The popular tourist attractions in Kausani are the beautiful Rudradhari waterfall and Kausani Caves. The revered site is associated with Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu. The holy Someshwar Temple lies close to the falls. The Anasakti Ashram and Lakshmi Ashram are serene locales to spend a few refreshing days in.
