Lansdowne; A Lesser Known, Must-Visit Travel Destination In Uttarakhand, India

Lansdowne is the untouched bit of beauty resting in the lap of the mountains in Uttarakhand, the land of mountains and Gods.
It is silent yet mind blowing. It is green, gorgeous and great in all senses possible. Lansdowne is best described as a journey and not a destination.

The town is now an army cantonment. Lansdowne stands tall at 1700 metres above the sea level. It is less crowded, clean and just about 250 kilometres from Delhi.
