The small hill station of Kausani offers such stunning views of the nearby Himalayas, Mahatma Gandhi once called it the "Switzerland of India." Although Kausani tourism sector provides a vital source of income for the locals, the remote outpost never feels too crowded with foreigners.
Explore hidden gems such as Rudrahari Mahadev Temple and Katarmal Surya Temple. Venture out of the city with trips to Bagnath Temple (in Bageshwar), Almora (Kumaon Regimental Centre Museum, Nanda Devi Temple, & more) and Jageshwar Temple (in Jageshwar). And it doesn't end there: look and learn at Stargate Observatory, admire the sheer force of Rudradhari Falls & Caves, take in nature's colorful creations at Kausani Tea Estate, and explore and take pictures at Lakshmi Ashram.

The popular hill station of Nainital was named after the pear-shaped lake around which the resort town has evolved.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Pangot and Kilbury Bird Sanctuary and Hanuman Garhi. Get out of town with these interesting Nainital side-trips: Karkotaka Temple (in Bhimtal), Ghorakhal Golu Devta Temple (in Bhowali) and Ranikhet (Golf Ground Ranikhet & Haidakhan Babaji Temple). There's lots more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Governor's House Raj Bhawan, see the sky in a new way at Astronomical Observatory, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Gurudwara Shri Singh Sabha, and gain insight at Himalayan Center of Sri Aurobindo Ashram.
