Lansdowne, A Place To Do Nothing

Lansdowne is a cantonment town in Pauri Garhwal district in the Indian state of Uttarakhand. Lansdowne was developed by the British and is till date the quietest hill station of India. This was my third visit to this place in September 2015 and like always the place was simply awesome.


Lansdowne is one of the most popular hill stations of Garhwal region when it comes to weekend destination. Just 260 kilometres from Delhi, it becomes a great getaway option for people who look for peaceful environment. This pristine place is managed by the Garhwal Rifles and is very neat clean unlike other hill stations because of Army rules and discipline. At an elevation of 1700 metres, this place offers great weather and mesmerising sunrise views of the Himalayas.
