  Kausani in Uttaranchal is known as the " Switzerland of India". Standing 1890 mts. above the sea level, Kausani is nature's own reserve. Even the father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi had contemplated on the beauty of Kausani.
Several snow- capped peaks stand in a stately row, over 300 kms. in length, shining against the azure sky making the horizon as seen from Kausani and enviable spectacle. The glory of the snow crowned Himalayan range reaches its pinnacle when the sunrays turn them into crimson and gold.

Several snow capped peaks such as Bunder Poonch, Chaukamba, Neel Kant, Badrinath, Kedarnath, triple peaks of Trishul, pyramid shaped peak of Nanda Devi, the pole shaped Nanda Kot, five peaks of Panchachuli and many more are visible from this heavenly land of Kausani.
