An unexpected turn on the Kotdwar-Pauri road brings you to a pretty hill station, Lansdowne, in the Pauri Garhwal region of Uttaranchal. Lansdowne is set amidst lovely 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 picnics. There are amazing mountain views of the Western Himalayas from a number of vantage pints like Snow View and Tiffin Top.more info
