Ever dreamed of leaving the world behind? Lansdowne just might be the place for you. A tiny town up in the hills of Uttaranchal (and a 5 hours drive from New Delhi), Lansdowne is surrounded by green, lush hills. The term ‘unspoilt’ is used these days quite liberally (and for all sorts of places) but Lansdowne truly is.

As a friend once aptly said, Lansdowne is the kind of place where you put a chair in your balcony, get a cup of tea, settle yourself comfortably and while away the time looking at the hills. It is the ultimate weekend getaway. You can recharge your batteries here, safe from the tourist hordes and souvenir shops. In fact, its citizens are proud of the fact that the town does not even have a cinema hall.

We re-located to our century old heritage family bunglow ' Prem Sadan' on Mall Road, Lansdowne Cantonment 2 years ago after spending over 3 decades in the metros/cities. I belong to a prominent Garhwali family and am here to serve the local people. I am a Kathak dancer and take the dance/hobby class at the Army Public School here. Its lovely out here, for you get what you seek--- health, peace of mind and happiness. Nature is at its best in Lansdowne, be it any season. One visit to Lansdowne will lead to another and another... You may come to our home and you will get all the information you want. Season's greetings ! Neera

Lansdowne! What a place it is. It’s beautiful, clean and peaceful hill station. We were a group of six adults and one child. We went from 30.04.11 to 1.04.1. At this time also weather was pleasant and peaceful. It was good that we didn’t drive our self and hired a taxi from Noida to Lansdowne. We stayed at Retreat Anand. Resort itself was a USP. It was in deep jungle about 4km from city. Cottages were OK but the location made up for all the minuses. Don’t go there if you want luxury of a 5 star hotel. Go only if you want nature right at your door step. Food was good service prompt. Rates were also OK. All in all – a good place. Time passes slowly there. You can enjoy mountains, jungle, Bulla Lake, Tip n Top, momos at Gandhi Chowk, Museum and lots of lazy and fresh air. I will definitely go back with my family for at least 2 days and feel the nature.

Plus there is a bonus in a form of cinema hall. Its know by the name of Aggarwal Cineplex and trust me, its worth it. For a ticket of only 18 rupees, you'll get the best value of money. The cinema hall is at par with most of the cineplex you'll find in any metropolitan. Its situated right at the Gandhi park.

I have been to lansdowne twice, its a lovely quite place away from madding crowd especially punju's. Good to spend couple of quiet days . Driving is the only option to reach lansdowne, not very far from delhi. One can reach lansdowne from delhi in flat 5-6hrs via meerut-bijnor-najibabad-kotdwar-lansdowne. Remember their is only one decent place to eat & relax on this entire journey & that is HOTEL PALM GREEN just before you enter bijnor & exactly midway between delhi & lansdowne. Nice clean place, well maintained, great food & homely ambience. Do not miss THIS.
