Kasauni is one of the famous tourist places in North India situated in close proximity to the Himalayan ranges. It is located 1890m. above the sea level in Bageshware district in the state of Uttarakhand. Termed as “Switzerland of India” by Mahatma Gandhi, the hill station is a scenic beauty near to another famous hill station Almora. Blessed with incessant natural splendour, Kasauni is a wonderful destination offering picturesque and panoramic view of 350 km. long Himalayan ranges with some of the major peaks like Nanda Devi, Trishul, and Panchchuli. Simply walking around the village can offer the visitors incredible magnificence besides exquisite landscapes.


Kasauni is a small village inhabited by only around 300 people. Pleasant and unspoiled ambience makes Kasauni one of the favoured tourist destinations not only for honeymoon couples but also for tourists seeking adventure in the form of mountaineering and trekking. Here, visitors come across not only the excellent views of the Himalayan peaks but also the majestic valleys of Someswar on one side and Garur and Baijnath Katyuri on the other side. Dense pine forest surroundings give the village a lush green appearance that is highly attractive. Kasauni is a perfect place for enjoying several breath-taking picnic spots enriched with beautiful wild flowers and vegetation in cool moderate climate. Experiencing snow fall during the months of December and January when the place remains extremely cool is yet another memorable highlight of the place.

Options for eating out at Kasauni are limited. However both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food is available in the restaurants attached to the hotels. Local eateries called dhabas are also available but for tourist information, it is pertinent to know that they offer vegetarian food mainly. You can enjoy local fresh fruits like cherries.

Shopping in Kasauni is mostly confined to warm apparel. Visitors may shop on the Mall Road for warm hand knitted caps and shawls as well as quilts, bags, pullovers, and gloves that are manufactured by girls at Sarla Ashram. That is not all about shopping in Kausani and there are some great eatables and divergent tea varieties to taste. Some of the best tea stores located just outside the tea factory are Anand & Sons tea stores and Puran Singh tea stores. Delicious Kumaoni jams, pickles, and chutneys are also amongst some good options to buy.
