Calm, serene and untouched natural beauty define Lansdowne. The nearest hill-station from Delhi, Lansdowne is an ideal retreat destination, away from the maddening crowds and pollution of city life.
Away from the usual tourist traffic and crowded markets, this quaint and offbeat little hill-station in the Pauri Garhwal region is a legacy of the British, particularly the viceroy Lord Lansdowne, after whom it takes its name. With lush green surroundings, dense pine and oak forests and refreshingly clean air, Lansdowne is best suited for those looking for peace and tranquility. The area comes under Indian Army's Garhwal Rifles, due to which its infrastructure is well-maintained and make Lansdowne's roads highly accessible. Commercial activity is restricted, which helps to keep its unspoiled, untouched charm intact. The popular Snow-View Point offers a stunning view of some of the Himalayan peaks like Chaukhamba. Take slow, quiet walks around town or go for a more rigorous trek in the steep tracks around Lansdowne to completely soak in its spectacular beauty.

Also known to be one of the quietest hill stations in India. It exists in, around and because of the cantonment — the command office of the Garhwal Rifles Battalion of the Indian Army is located here. The Cantonment Board is in charge of the administration, saving Lansdowne from unchecked development. Back in the Raj, it was a popular hill station. Formerly Kalundanda, it was named after Sir Henry Petty-Fitzmaurice, Marquis of Lansdowne and Viceroy of India from 1888-1894. Winding roads are still lined with colonial bungalows. The town gets many migratory birds due to its proximity to the Sonanadi Division of Corbett NP.
