Blue-green mountains, dabbed with snow; swirling mists and the lingering scent of pine; dark, towering deodars and bushy shrubs of green tea; luscious pear orchards and spreads of rainbow blooms; rolling slopes covered with velvet grass; roads that wind on and on; little hamlets perched on the hillside, tranquil and charming and two gurgling rivers Gomti and Kosi that sing along as they flow - this is Kausani.
At Kausani, a hill station perched on a narrow ridge on Pingnath Peak, 1890 metres above sea level, nature is at its intoxicating best. Wild, yet tame when you know it better; beautiful, yet dangerous, if you aren't careful. No wonder, it has emerged as one of the most loved tourist destinations in India. Kausani is also famous for being the birthplace of the poet laureate Sumitranandan Pant.
