Lansdowne Tour, Lansdowne Tour Packages


Tiny Lansdowne is one of the quietest hill stations in India. Lansdowne was one of the popular hill station, where the Sahibs, mostly from the army, galloped across the ridge that overlooked a sprawling valley and the Greater Himalaya, or drove to the church on the hill (the popular Tiffin Top) every Sunday in their horse-drawn carriages.
The town itself is named after Sir Henry Charles Keith petty-Fitzmau-rice, 5th Marquess of Lansdowne, 6th Earl of Kerry and Viceroy of India from 1888 to 1894. Shaded, winding roads are still lined with colonial bungalows, some in a state of disrepair, some steadfastly retaining their charm with ornate gates and window sills hidden behind blanketing bougainvillea. Silver fir, spruce and the elephant’s favourite bamboo forests cover the hills in and around Lansdowne.

A barely motorable road leads to this important temple dedicated to Shiva. It is considered to be one the ancient. Siddhpeethas and is nestled in a thick forest of deodar, blue pine and oak. Water pools around the temple lend an aura of mystery to the place. It is on the road heading back to Kotdwar.
