Lansdowne Overview

Located in the Garhwal district of the state of Uttaranchal, Lansdowne is a small picturesque hill station. It is at a height of 1706 m above sea level and is preferred for its comfortable weather throughout the year. In fact, due to its weather and scenic beauty, Lansdowne was a popular hill resort for the British, and they built a cantonment here which is still preserved and maintained well.

Lansdowne is named after its founder Lord Lansdowne, the Viceroy of India during 1888-1894. It was the main base of independent movement activities during the Indian pre-independence time. Currently, the command office of the legendary Garhwal Rifles of the Indian Army is in Lansdowne. The Garhwal Rifles Regimental War Memorial and the Regimental Museum are places of significance in Lansdowne.

Lansdowne is known for its natural beauty and its tranquil environment. Though well connected by motorable roads and located quite near to many busy cities, the place is unique because of the sense of seclusion and peace it offers.

The lush greenery of the thick oak and blue pine forest that surrounds Lansdowne adds to its beauty and charm, making it ideal for trekking and nature walks. Trekking to Tip-in-Top or Hawagarh, bird watching, boating and paddling in the Bhulla Tal, etc are the main activities that visitors can indulge in on a trip to Lansdowne.

Like most other hill stations, the climate here is the biggest attraction, especially during the hot summers when people from the plains come here to escape the summer heat. Winters in Lansdowne are severe with temperatures falling below 0º Celsius during the peak of winter.

Snowfall is common during the winter season and the quaint town is covered with a blanket of white snow. For those who want to see snowfall and experience the winter chill, Lansdowne is an ideal place to visit during this time.

For a comfortable stay, the best time to visit Lansdowne is between the summer months of March to October when the weather is cool and pleasant for visitors to trek around and explore the place. During autumn, the annual festival of ‘Shardotsav’ is celebrated in a grand way bringing in tourists from all over.

The hill station of Lansdowne can be reached by air, rail and roadways. The nearest airport is Jolly Grant Airport (100 km), in Dehradun, which has connections to Delhi Airport, the nearest international airport. The nearest railhead is at Kotdwar, at a distance of approximately 40 km. Lansdowne is also well connected to nearby regions like Kotdwar, Haridwar, Dehradun, Mussoorie and Delhi, among other places, by bus.
