Made a good start with a 30 km descent on a good road. Of course we ended up at a river and had to climb out the Kosi valley again. In Almora the Tourist Bungalow offers 'cottages with mountain-view'. Unfortunately those cottages are located at the end of a steep series of steps- so we had to carry our bikes all the way up to get there.
Almora - Kausani
The countryside around us looked very similar to what had seen on a previous trip to Nepal. We passed through numerous small villages where the friendly locals waved to us and said 'namaste' all the time
The cycling on this stretch of road is superb. Great views and plenty of places to stop and relax under a shady tree. Only the last 5 km's to Kausani we had to do some real climbing. But the road was layed out in many hairpins so even that was no great challenge.
Kausani is a small village. It's actually not more then a junction with some hotels, shops and small restaurants. After a good meal with rice, sabji, dal and chai we went to bed early. Tommorow at sunrise there would be an excellent opportunity to have some more great views of the Himalayan range.
