Done with the usual sightseeing within the city and still left with time on your hands? Get ready then to explore the amazing locales around Kausani, which are equally beautiful and rich in history and culture. Some of the popular places around Kausani are:

  • Baijnath Temple

    Located in the capital city of the Katyuri dynasty, this temple dedicated to Lord Shiva was built in 1150 AD. On the banks of river Gomti, this cluster of temples built in stone, echoes the legend of the marriage of Shiva and Parvati, who were believed to have been married at the confluence of rivers Garur Ganga and Gomti. About 17 kms from Kausani, this is an ideal point of interest for believers and history buffs alike.

  • Rudradhari Falls and Caves

    Did you secretly grow up wishing you were a treasure hunter, accidentally tumbling over a treasure chest? Here’s a chance to explore some natural caves and waterfall in Kausani and who knows it just might be your lucky day! Located at a distance of 12 kms from Kausani, these caves and waterfall will fall in your way while trekking towards Adi Kailash. Feeling adventurous, step into the clear, clean but freezing water. Surrounded by lush green pine forest and paddy fields, this is what you can come closest to being in harmony with nature.

  • Bageshwar

    Wishing to add some bonus points to your
    Karma, head towards Bageshwar. At a distance of 39 kms from Kausani, it is described as a holy place in Hindu scriptures. It is believed that by making a pilgrimage here, you can attain Nirvana, or free yourself from the eternal cycle of birth and death. Even if not, the place is surely going to attract you for its mystical charms, ancient temples and beautiful landscape.

  • Bhramri Temple

    Popularly known as Kote-Ke-Mai temple or Bhramri Devi temple, it is located inside a ruined fort in Kausani. It is widely believed that Adi Guru Shankaracharya spent a good deal of time here while on his way to Garhwal region. What really has generated buzz about the temple is the fact that the goddess faces north while the devotees offer prayers from the south direction. During August a grand fair is organized known as Nanda Raj Jat in which the idol of Devi is decorated and a procession is taken out in the town. Just about 20 kms from Kausani, you sure don’t want to miss this one.

Make sure you carry ample woolens, according to season you travel in, on your trip to these nearby attractions as the temperature can be a little unpredictable. This might be a good time to dig out those comfy sneakers as the hilly terrain here would need you to wear steady and sturdy footwear. Before leaving from Kausani, make sure you speak to the staff at the hotel where you’re staying for some local insights and tips. They might also be able to help you get a bargain with cabs, or at least, give you an updated idea about how much they may cost.

With so many
places around Kausani, you’re sure to be spoilt for choice. So what will you choose on this trip?
