INFORMATION ABOUT KAUSANI
A 300km wide view curves across the Himalayas from Kausani, a breathtakingly beautiful hill station in the Kumaon Hills. The eye sweeps past dense forests and glowing hills lit up by the setting sun.
The panorama unfolds over the snow-covered peaks of Nanda Devi and Trishul, their impenetrable beauty overshadowing the lesser mountains scattered at their feet. At 7817 metres, Nanda Devi is the second highest peak in India and has exerted a tremendous impact on the cultures and lives of the Kumaoni and Garhwali peoples. Mt. Trishul and Nanda Ghunti hover close by, symbolic of Shiva’s trident and his wife’s veil.
Besides these heart-stopping views, Kausani offers blissfully undiluted silence and tranquillity. The crisp air is laden with the scent of pines. Tea gardens and pear orchards dot the landscape while the summer months see a profusion of wild flowers in the valleys. The hill station itself is perched on a narrow ridge on Pingnath Peak, overlooking mountain vistas, while the rivers Gomti and Kosi flank the town.
