Lansdowne Travel Guide

An unexpected turn on the Kotdwar-Pauri road brings you to a pretty hill station, Lansdowne, in the Pauri Garhwal region of Uttaranchal. Lansdowne is set amidst lovely surroundings - tall oaks and blue pines rise like spires off the mountainside. The forests are lovely, dark and deep, just ideal for those long walks and picnics. There are amazing mountain views of the Western Himalayas from a number of vantage pints like Snow View and Tiffin Top.

Like other hill resorts in north India, Lansdowne too has its fair share of temples and shrines, most of them devoted to the various forms of the Mother Goddess.

Eco tourism is a big thing in this pretty little hill station. The residents in Lansdowne firmly believe in preserving nature and the town is in spic and span. So watch it - don't litter or you are liable to be pulled up by a resident!
