Lansdowne Weekend Package 2N/3D
(price per person)
An unexpected turn on the Kotdwar-Pauri road brings you to a pretty hill station, Lansdowne, in the Pauri Garhwal region of Uttranchal. Lansdowne is set amidst beautiful 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 picnins. There are amazing mountain views of the Western Himalayas from a number of vantage pints like Snow and Tiffin Top.
Like other hill resorts in north India, Lansdowne too has its fair share of temples and shrines, most of them dedicated to the various forms of the Mother Goddess.
Lansdowne lost its existence to the British who established a Garhwal Rifles cantonment here during the Raj era. They specified this hill-station cantonment in honour of the Earl of Lansdowne, Sir Petty-Fitzmaurice, the Viceroy of India (1888-1894). The town is well refined thanks to the cantonment, yet it is charmingly unspoiled and tranquil.
Lansdowne has an average elevation of 1,706 metres (5,686 feet). Surrounded by thick oak and blue pine forests, Lansdowne has scenic beauty and good surroundings.Show less
