What you can find around Kausani - 5

I know, all you guys never know what is around the Kausani. If you are missed to read this article then there is no use to visit here. Just keep remember the distance and beautiful locations around the Kausani.

Baijnath (16 km):

A little lower than Kausani, Baijnath is a one-horse town on the banks of the Gomti, in the Garuda Valley. The main attraction here is the temple complex. Pick up a large packet of channa to feed the fish near the temple and do not get tempted by their size - fishing is strictly forbidden.

Also look out for the large round stone which nine men should lift using only a finger each, just outside the compound. The black stone idol of Parvati in the main temple is exquisitely worked and worth spending time over. Eight km from there is a Kali Temple, known as Kot-ki-mai.

Rail Nearest railhead: Kathgodam (138 km/ 41/2 hrs). Taxi Costs Rs 1,200-1,400 Road From Delhi, drive along NH24 to Rampur and NH87 till Bhowali, then bear right towards Khairna and on to Almora. Kausani is 50 km north of Almora via Kosi and Someshwar.

Stay in Baijnath at the KMVN Tourist Rest House (Tel: 05963-250101; Tariff: Rs. 200-300, dorm Rs 50 per bed).

Bageshwar (39 km):

Bageshwar is located at the confluence of the Gomti and Saryu rivers at 3,200 ft. The temple complex is one of the main tourist draws. The temple is strung with bells - traditional Kumaoni offerings. They come truly alive during the Uttarayani Mela in January every year. So, what you think? Just reach at Bageshwar and Baijnath to pray for future.
