Kausani Overview

Kausani:-

Standing 1890 m above the sea level, Kausani is nature’s own reverse, nestling among thick, dense pine forests atop a narrow ridge and separated from the towering mountains of the Nanda Devi range by low, medium mountains at Kausani. Kausani is famous for its breathtaking and astounding view, over 300 km in length, of the Himalayas. From here one can see the settlements of the Katyuri valley, the river Gomti and the snow-clad peaks of Panchachuli, Nanda Kot, Nanda Devi, Trishul, Nanda Ghunti, Chaukhamba and Kedarnath.

Tourist Attraction


Kausani is frequented by tourists for the panoramic views of the Himalayas. It offers excellent sightings of the Trisul (7,120m), Nanda Devi (7,816m) and the Panchachuli (6,904m). Frozen in time, this backdrop makes Kausani the perfect place for a holiday with the family. Kumaon at its best.


Anasakti Ashram
A quiet and revered place where the Father of the Nation spent some days. Set against the breathtaking beauty of the Himalayas, this place has been made into a memorial in his memory.
In 1929, Mahatma Gandhi spent 12 days here. He was so enamoured of Kausani that he called it the Switzerland of India and brought his thoughts out in his book called Anasakti Yoga. The place where he stayed is called the Anasakti Ashram. Earlier the guest house of a tea estate now its an ashram and offers a good resting place for travelers and can accommodate 300 people. Every evening prayers are conducted in the main hall. It also has a library. There is nothing like the mesmerizing Himalayan sunset and sunrise from the Ashram premises.
