Tucked away in the hills, a pretty little town in Uttarakhand, Landour is often referred to as the ‘tiara’ for the ‘Queen of Hills’ Mussoorie and is one of the best places to visit in India in July! Colonial country homes grace the area with stunning sights, further heightened by the presence of cafes in the streetscape. With the mesmerisingly blue Garhwal Himalayas in the backdrop offering striking views of the Kedarnath, Yamunotri and even Nanda Devi, Landour is quaint, connected by elevating, winding roads, wrapped up in coniferous green, pines and deodar trees. It is best accessed by a trek through the streets lingering along the hills surrounded by a tiny bazaar with antique shops and the like, altogether adding a touch of poetry to the place. Why even writer Ruskin Bond’s home lies en route! Some people call this the best place to visit in July in India, and we don't argue either.
