This summer, since recession has hit us quite strong, I decided to take a trip to nearby hill station KAusani and believe the experience was worthwhile!
Trip from Lucknow to Haldwani is quite smooth if you go by your own ca. * hours and we were at Haldwani lured by amzing breeze and great view from our hotel, Saurabh Comfort Inn. Good place to put up.
Next morninf we proceeded ti Bhimtaal booking Lake Palce Hoel for return stay! Yes, not to mention, I tried my best to avoid Nainitaal because that is one place where you can find anybody and everybody. I wanted to go somewhere nice and quiet. And Kausani was all that.
But reaching Kausani was going to take some time! From Bhimtaal, we scooted to Almora and took a turn to Jaageshwar temple somewhat 40 km from Almora. But once you reach there it's alltogether a different world. It is said that gods live in this valley and trust me you can feel it.
Serinity and beauty combined with a very pious atmosphere! Just felt like putting up at night there but unfortunately there are no decent places to stay. Just visit and proceed, that's the dictum.
Unfortunately, weather thought out this journey was very hot. Deforestation and commercialisation have taken their toll. The good part is Kausani is pleasant in mornings and evenings. Days are hot but if you are in hotel, you won't feet the heat as much. By the way there are no ACs in hotels in KAusani!
Unlike it's more famous and much peopled counterpart Nainital, Kausani is away from commercial glamour and is really really peaceful. Only nature lovers will enjoy there as there is nothing to do otherwise. Just trek and sit and relax and think! But isn't that a luxury most of us cannot afford. For me it was a therapeutic experience! Going for a walk daily for one hour then sitting in peace on some stone .
Kausani is the birthplace of known Hindi kavi Sumitranandan Pant and Gandhi also stayed at this place for a fortnight and found it so peaceful that he established an ashram named Anasakti. Fortunately my hotel was quite adjascent to it so I could go there everyday and watch those rare pics of Gandiji!!
- Pros:This place is like heaven if you are in need of peace
- Cons:No burger and pizza parlours. No night life
- In a nutshell:Closer to tranquility of nature
Kausani is best explored by trekking. There are so many untouched spots that you will never feel bored. A true mountain... more travel advice
Approx 10 km from KAusani there is a trekking route called Rudradhari which takes you to a completely different world!... more travel advice
