Enclosed by wood and three-dimensional blue pine forests, well joined by road and yet unspoiled by plain commercialism, at 1700mts above sea level, Landsdowne reduces as a secret masterpiece of a hill station.
Since it is managed by the Cantonment board, it’s well maintained, pollution/plastic-free. It’s a place of great satisfaction for the Garhwal Rifles as their war souvenirs and quaint, Heritage Regimental mess does adorn the place.
I would have made a separate entry for the mess itself as it needs a special permit and a dress code(basically laces and frills for the Gentlemen) for the approach, please take out at least a weekend out of your active urban times to undergo the natural beauty that overflows here.Looking at the flowers that take root in trees, the breathtaking beauty of the place is best soaked in while taking Lil treks along narrow tracks …
