Hello fellow travellers,
We are a couple in early 30s with a 4 year old daughter. We are planning a trip to Kausani in August - the 15th August long weekend to be precise. The plan was to travel from Delhi to Kathgodam by train and hire a taxi for the journey thereafter.
Here was a rough itinerary we thought of :
Board train on 14th August night. Arrive at Kathgodam on 15th Morning.
15th - Taxi till Ranikhet. Stay overnight at Ranikhet.
16th - After early breakfast, leave for Kausani and stay overnight at Kausani.
17th - After early breakfast, leave for Sitlakhet and stay overnight at Sitlakhet
18th - Leave from Sitlakhet to KGM . Catch afternoon train to Delhi
Note : we deliberately chose to break at Ranikhet/Sitlakhet so as to avoid 5 hour long road journey from KGM to Kausani (and vice versa) in one single stretch so that it is not too tiring for us , and more importantly for our daughter.
Any inputs/suggestions on this itinerary would be most appreciated.
More importantly, I was concerned about the weather in August. I know that this is not exactly the best time, since it is monsoons. Is it worth taking a risk to visit in August?Some intermittent showers are fine but I don't want a totally washed out holiday.Also, is there any chance of getting view of Himalayas from Kausani at this time? Please help with your inputs.
Thanks for taking out the time to help.
