Standing 1890 mts above the sea level, Kausani is nature’s own reserve of solitudes and greenery. Even the father of the nation, Mahatama Gandhi has contemplated on the beauty of this region. Several snow capped peaks stand in a stately row, over 300 kms in length, shining against the azure sky making the horizon as seen from Kausani and enviable spectacale. The glory of the snow crowned Himalayan range reaches it’s pinnacle when the sun rays turn them into crimson and gold. Mahatama Gandhi, who spent 12 days in 1929 at Kausani, penned his memorable commentary on the Geeta-Ana-Sakti yoga inspired by the scenic grandeur of this richly gifted spot. The guest house where the Mahatama stayed is now know as Anasakti Ashram. Hindi poet laureate Sumitranandan Pant was born at Kausani. Some of his early poems composed here have described nature in it’s myriad manifestations. There is small museum to earmark that sacred spot. Kausani is ideal for those who seek to escape from the din and dust, hustle and bustle of big cities and wish to spend a quiet holiday in the lap of nature. Indeed, Kausani is a veritable heaven of beauty to which an excursion must be made on visiting Kumaun. The wide expanse of the famous Katyur Valley lies in front of it as you wake up to experience the Kausani sunrise.
