Panoramic Himalaya's view at dawn in Kausani. 

Spreading from east to west along  a narrow pine covered ridge, 52 km northwest of Almora at a height of 6000 ft., the village of Kausani has become a popular tourist spot since last few years. The reasons behind popularity of Kausani as a tourist spot are-  The relaxed atomosphere in Kausani that gives one the feeling of being in heaven and secondly the 300 km long panoramic view of major Himalayan peaks from Kausani.

Kausani is a simple day trip from Almora, although it's worth staying overnight there because the view of Himalayan peaks are at their best at dusk and dawn. The major Himalayan peaks visible from Kausani are Trishul ( 7128m), Nanda devi and Nanda devi east ( 7850m and 7500 m respectively), Nanda Ghunti, Panchachuli peaks, Maiktoli and Kamet, etc.

The number of tourists are growing with every coming year in Kausani so the hotels and resorts too.

There are several ashrams in Kausani including one that once Gandhiji visited i.e., Anashakti ashram. Gandhiji walked here in 1929 and stayed in Kausani for twelve days. He wrote a book there in the Ashram, naming "Anashaktiyoga". Gandhiji loved the ambience and environment of  Kausani so much that he termed Kausani as "Mini Switzerland of India".
Kausani is also the birthplace of great poet "Mr.Sumitranandan Pant", first Hindi poet to receive prestigious Jnanpith award.
