Lansdowne market road
This is nothing but the main market of Lansdowne. Lansdowne being a very small place, you cannot expect shopping malls and departmental stores here. This is a large market which is like roadside market but the good part is you get everything that is available over here. Starting from fruits and vegetables to bakery items and small handicrafts to winter veils and shawls, you can buy anything from this place.
St. Mary's Church
A historical church built in the 19th century by a royal engineer named Col. A.H.B. Hume, this is just near the Tip N Top Pint. This is like a heritage monument of the hill station but all church services were stopped after 1947 given the deteriorating conditions of the building. The charge of administration was taken by the Garhwal Regiment and it was then converted into a museum like we find it now. The museum houses nothing but a pretty good collection of old pictures and details about pre- independence era of this place. You can also enjoy audio- visual representation of the British Era when you come here.
Tip N Top
This is a holiday resort in the beautiful hill station and you can stay in log cottages or normal cottages when you come here. The views of the foggy surroundings are even more perfect from here and the dense forests are perfect places for some camping, picnics and walking. The rooms here are just enough for you to put up and there can be a few spiders here and there but this is what you call real camping experience in the midst of the forest. The service and food is good otherwise.
Bhulla Taal Lansdowne
And it was evening when in the twilight me and a couple of my friends were Enjoying the tea and the mist of the evening air. And we knew we needed some time off. Suddenly Honey burst with the plan of going to Manali and me and Ankit stood there with Mouths open knowing it might be too quick but with the urge to Move out, 6 hours later we had our bags packed and booked a self driven Honda City. It was midnight when we started the trip and in the Following dawn, we were there enjoying the Cold morning wind of the hills. What a delight it was moving from the scorching heat to the chilly winds. The major difference that Lansdowne had from the other Mainstream hillstations I had visited was that, it had perfect greenery to it. There were flowers and trees and the even the stony hills had a tinge of greenness to it. As the air was thinning with altitude, the more green was it getting and the more pleasure was the location providing. And then finally we were there from the foots of the sea to 17,000 feets above sea level.We planned to grab some rest in the car itself and then we explore few picturesque places there. I still can't forget the beautiful lakes that it had to offer. The way had a lot more to offer than we had thought. It was just fantastic. ????. It's a fabulous weekend get away for the trip takers.
Darwan Singh Museum
Also known as the Garhwali Museum, this is a war museum housing a good collection of all sorts of war antiques, weapons and badges. This museum was inaugrated in 1983 and was named after an army man Darwan Singh Negi. The most attractive part is the very rare Garhwali gun collection preserved here with lot of care. The good part you will see in every place here is that people are very caring and concious about their land and heritage.
Beautiful place, Amazing view & Awesome Stay... This is what you can call it as. Fairydale has big property more than spacious rooms - Neat, clean & must say there service is like super fast 4G. Fresh air, beautiful pine trees & peace. Once you reach there you will be amazed by its beauty.
St. John's Church
Built in 1863, St Johns Church is much like the Roman Catholic Church in England. This monument was constructed during the British rule by Protestant missionaries and is of much religious and historical importance to the hill town of Dalhousie. The architecture is that of a typical British structure as it is made of brick and wood. The church is located in Gandhi Chowk and is a mere 2 kilometres away from the Dalhousie bus stand. Many tourists come to visit this holy shrine all round the year. Next to the church is a library that houses a great number of books and records for visitors to read and go through.
Another name for this museum is the Garhwal Rifles War Museum and it was established in the year 1923 by Lord Rawlinson of Trent. He was the then governer chief of India. The museum is in the famous Rifle Ground and is one of the most popular attractions here. You can visit this place to get detailed information about pre- independence history and the achievments of the army men here. The museum was built in the honor of the valour of the officers of the Garhwal Regiment. It remains closed on the day of Oath taking of new recruits of the Garhwal Regiment.
Tip N Top Lansdowne
Tip n top is the highest point of lansdowne and marks its territory. It is 1756mts above sea level and you can practically see magnificent snow covered mountain peaks touching the sky. That panaroma is a treat for the eyes.This is the point beyond which its only abyss, beyond which you and me would cease to exist.There is this rock which seemed so fascinating to me and yaa for dat one so called "kick" i just climbed up and sat on it. When ever i am at such locations i end up sitting/ standing at the extreme edges. Not out of a desire to flaunt or may be to seek adventure, rather i just find such edges alluring me towards themselves. And every such edge brings with itself a lot of thrashing from my friends who always say," chotti, marr jaeggi. Picche ajja kakke !!"(Awwww, poor me )And every such thrashing brings with itself the same answer from me," Everything will scare you, if you are afraid to live..!!" *filmy dailouge*The other destinations worth visiting are St. Johns church, army museum.
