Honeymoon in Kausani (Uttarakhand)

Destination


Kausani is a small hilltop town and a celebrated holiday snow resort that offers exquisite views of the majestic snow-clad Himalayan Mountain peaks of Nanda Devi, Panchachuli and Trishul.

You’ll simply get lost in the lovely, dark and deep coniferous forests, held to thrall by the melodious chirping of birds and mesmerized by the golden sunrises and the ochre-red sunsets. Mahatma Gandhi was so taken in by the spellbinding beauty of Kausani that he christened the place as ‘Switzerland of India’. Newlyweds from all over the world flock to Kausani to soak in the astounding environs of the place. Weekend holidaymakers from Delhi routinely rush to Kausani to reinvigorate themselves.

Location


Kausani is a hilltop town that falls under the district of Bageshwar in the state of Uttarakhand. Kausani is perched at a height of 1890m in the lower reaches of the Himalayas in the Kumaon region. One gets sweeping views of the Someshwar, Baijnath Katyuri and Garur valleys from Kausani.

Getting There


Kathgodam is the closest railhead. One can reach Kathgadom by rail from Delhi, Howrah (Kolkata), Dehradun, Jammu, Kanpur, and Lucknow. The nearest domestic airport is in Pantnagar and the nearest international airport is the IGI airport in New Delhi. Kausani is also conveniently connected by road with almost all major cities and towns in North India.

Best Time to Visit


The weather remains pleasant throughout the year barring the winter months when it gets unbearably cold. If you want to visit all the sightseeing attractions and/or take a trek to the Pindari glacier or Sunderdhunga glacier, then you should be scheduling a post wedding trip between July and October. However, if you want to witness Kausani in its winter glory then you should be visiting the place between November and January. Not only are the surrounding mountains and valleys enveloped in snow even the entire down is draped in thick sheets of ice.

Where to Stay


There is no dearth of luxury and budget hotels and resorts in Kausani. However as a honeymooning couple you can make reservations for a room or suite in ‘The Heritage Resort’, ‘Hotel Uttarakhand’, ‘Blossom Hotel and Resort’, ‘Pratiksha Himalayan Retreat’, ‘Krishna Mountain View Resort’, ‘Suman Royal Resort’ and the ‘Sun n Snow Inn’.

Things to Do


If you’re an adventure seeker and like the thrill of adrenaline rushing through your veins, then you can plan for a trekking tour to any of the popular treks including the Pindari Glacier Trek, Milam Glacier Trek, and the Sunder Dhunga Trek. Rock-climbing is another sought after activity. Since the town is very small in area, you can cover all the nearby spots by walking taking short, impromptu breaks. There are numerous water-sports and other adventure sport activities you can enjoy.

Sightseeing Attraction for Honeymooners



Other spots that you not miss visiting are the Sumitranandan Pant Gallery, Pinnath mountain peak, Lakshmi Ashram, Rudrahari Mahadev Temple and the Kot Bhramari Temple.

Shopping


Certainly pick up a handmade shawl or two and packs of Kausani Tea sourced from the Kausani Tea Estate.
