Kausani Copyright M. Anil 2008

Hi folks,

I am back from my holidays but bit tired. You may explore my new page “Incredible India” above wherein you will find some photographs and texts about the places visited. Best things deserve best places, thats what made me to introduce a new page to post the best pictures which will remain always accessible and will never be lost in the midst of posts. Above picture shows the Kumaon hills from Kausani. Kausani is a beautiful hill station which is known as the “Switzerland of India”. Kausani commands an unobstructed view of Himalayas. Its situated at a height of 1890 meters.

If you look carefully to the picture above, the Himalayan peaks “Trishul”, “Panchachulli” or Panchachouli etc are visible behind the Kumayun hills. There is a story in favour of the name “Panchachulli”. As per epic Mahabharata, Droupadi, wife of pancha Pandavas cooked food for five brothers in five separate ovens (chulli). Those marks of five ovens are still visible on the Himalaya and have been named as “Panchachulli”.

Kausani SunriseCopyright M Anil 2008

The sun is trying to come out from the clouds above and at the same time the thickly dense clouds covered the entire valley which looks like a lake turned ice.
