Welcome To Lansdowne

About Lansdowne

For a brief introduction, located at a height of 1,700 meters, Lansdowne is a small hill-station in the Pauri Garhwal region of Uttarakhand. The town is named such after Lord Lansdowne, the Viceroy of India, who visited the place in 1884. It is in fact a cantonment and much thanks to the Indian Army, is also a place that is not yet spoilt by tourist mania. It still retains its quiet and serenity, unlike the other popular hill stations of our country. The entire town is administered by the cantonment board and hence is much cleaner, less commercialized, and well connected by super smooth roads. The place offers stunning views and is perfect to escape the scorching heat of the plains for a few days. Lansdowne or Lansdown is a town and a hill station at a height of 1,700 m in Uttarakhand, India. Lansdowne is located in the Pauri district of Uttarakhand, 45 km from Kotdwar.
