The 300 km wide view of the Himalayas is spectacular. Kausani is nestled amongst deep pine forests, on a hill top where the view of the snow capped Trishul and Nanda Devi is so clear that one feels the snow is at a touching distance.

At an elevation of 1126 m. in the Garur valley of Katyur is the complex of Baijnath Temple.
