Kausani Tea Estate
After the Ashram visit we walked down the mountains for some 4-5 Kms towards the Kausani Tea Estate. This is the place where you find the tea plantations. However it's not really been given alot of importance but that's what draws a lot of attention for tea lovers here. The plantations here is not that great as compared to Darjeeling and other destinations.
In the last couple of years, this quiet hill station has become quite popular with tourists from across the world. Leaving behind crowded hill stations, travellers are now making their way to this retreat. Home to waterfalls, lush green meadows and stunning walking trails, there is not much to see or do besides enjoying nature in Kausani. Mahatma Gandhi stayed here for a brief period and penned down the memorable 'Gita-Anashakti Yoga' here. There is a museum dedicated to Gandhi's life here and is a must visit. So is the lovely Baijnath Temple and the waterfalls next to it. Do visit the Kausani Shawl Factory and take back shawls as souvenirs. Besides this, there is not much to shop here at Kausani. Finding a place to stay here is also a little tricky since most hotels are usually booked and there aren't too many options. If you are coming from Delhi, it should take you about 15 hours when travelling by bus. Alternatively, you can also take a train till Kathgodam and then take the bus till Kausani. Do remember that it can take about 2 to 3 hours extra depending on the conditions of the road.
Best Time To Visit
Best time to visit Kausani is from January to June and from October to November
