Landour can be a perfect weekend getaway from Delhi.It was a randomly planned trip, when I left for Mussoorie with two of my friends. But when we reached, we realized that there were too many 'Bengalis' and Mussoorie appeared to be 'mini Kolkata'!!In search for calmness, we headed towards Landour - and that's when we landed up at Rokeby Manor - an elegant 19th Century manor which has been turned to a boutique hotel.(Landour is about 45mins to an hours drive from Mussoorie.)They say photographs can reveal more than words. So I would rather put a pause here, and show you how it was all like...
To get a break from the hustle and bustle of city life, we decided to visit Mussoorie, the Queen of hills. After a long search on various sites and reading reviews about different stay options, we came across by Rokeby Manor, in Landour cantt , Mussoorie.So we started early in the morning(around 6 am)on 22 Aug from ludhiana. Only the two of us(me and my husband), long drive, awesome weather, soothing music and nice roads.We decided to choose the way... Ludhiana>Ambala>Yamunanagar>Paonta Sahib>Herbertpur>Dehradune>Mussoorie>Our Destinaton. It took us around 7 hours(Distance ~300kms and 2 stays in between) to reach Mussoorie and 40 min(Distance ~35kms) from there to reach RokeBy Manor. Google maps helped us arrive the destination.The way from mussoorie to Landour Cantt is awesome. Narrow lanes, sharp turns, serenity, greenery and cleanliness all around. And one of these sharp turns led us to Rokeby Manor.
Beautiful up class restaurant for a perfect date
