Kausani is located 52 km
north of Almora. A picturesque hill station famous for its scenic splendour and
its spectacular 300 km-wide panoramic view of Himalayan peaks like Trisul,
Nanda Devi and Panchchuli. Kausani lies atop a ridge at an altitude of around
1890 m amidst dense pine trees overlooking Someshwar valley on one side and
Garur and Baijnath Katyuri valley on the other on Almora-Bageshwar-Didihat
Highway. Mahatma Gandhi called this place the 'Switzerland of India', due to
similarity in landscape.
