Sunrise from Lansdowne.

The beautiful town of Lansdowne is situated at an elevation of 1780 m above sea level. It is in the south of Pauri en route Kotdwar and is surrounded by thick oak and blue pine  forests offering great mountain views. It is a charming place for a quiet holiday as it is devoid of the usual hustle - bustle of other hill stations in Uttarakhand. Lansdowne was originally a popular hill station with the British.

Attracted by its healthy climate and natural beauty, they established a cantonment here. It was founded by the, then Viceroy Lord Lansdowne in 1887. Thus the place has been named after him. The famous Garhwal Rifles of the Indian Army has its command office here.

The climate of Lansdowne is characterized by cold winters and pleasant summers. Summers during March to June are pretty enjoyable in Lansdowne with pleasant climate. Winters during December to February are extremely cold with minimum temperature falls subzero level. Snowfalls throughout winters are a spectacular characteristic of Lansdowne.

Celebrations associated with Maha Shivaratri during February - March are very attractive and are conducted with much devotion and enthusiasm.

Best season to visit Lansdowne is from March to November!
