Lansdowne – A Serene and unspoilt hill station near Delhi

Serene and unspoilt, Lansdowne is a hill station in the secluded reaches of Uttaranchal. Surrounded by beautiful oak, silver fir, spruce, bamboo and pine forests, it is a summer getaway for nature lovers and romantics. This hilly town was established as a British cantonment in 1887 and named in honour of the Earl of Lansdowne, the Viceroy of India (1888-1894). Now it is the headquarters of the famous Garhwal Rifles of the Indian Army. You won't find much of popular tourism here and it is as if the town intends to preserve its local charm and sanctity.
It was a great experience of visiting the Lansdowne. It is not crowdie like the Shimla and Mansoori... Even it is cleaner as compare to them... Just Five hours drive from Delhi and its wow.
Less options for food BUT they are worth it.. And this is what we expect from a hill-station maintaining old world charm... Do try out Local Bal-Mithai and Maggi at Tip-in-Top...

You can enjoy Boating at Bhulla Lake, Laze around, enjoying sunshine, Go for a walk on Tip-in-Top Road, enjoy mighty and Mystical Himalayas...

You can go by train to Kotdwar and from their you can get local cab at 40 Rs per passenger or just drive your own from Delhi.
This destination is perfect if you don't want to do anything and just unwind yourself... Relax, discover yourself, be with your loved ones...


  1. “I believe Lansdown is the one of the most beautiful hill station for budget & leisure holiday in Himalaya’s with family, friends, loved once, honeymooning, adventure etc.”
