Lansdowne Hill Station Uttarakhand (Hindi: लैंसडाउन)
Lansdowne is one of the quietest and unspoilt hill stations of India and has been a popular destination since Britishers came to India. Lansdowne is unlike other hill stations, as it is well connected with motorable roads but remote in its own way. It is situated at an altitude of 1,700 mts above sea level surrounded with thick oak and blue pine forests in the Pauri Garhwal district of Uttarakhand state.
Lansdowne got its name from Lord Lansdowne, who was the then Viceroy of India during the period of 1888-1894. Presently, Lansdowne has the command office of the Garhwal Rifles division of the Indian Army.
