STARSCAPES OBSERVATORY KAUSANI
Situated in the state of Uttarakhand, Kausani is a cosy little hill station that Mahatma Gandhi lovingly called the “Switzerland of India”. We opened our first private observatory here in 2016. Guided by our friendly and highly experienced StarGuide, and equipped with a fantastic 8-inch computerized GoTo telescope, you can explore the wonderful view of the Universe.
