It was freezing weather even in mid of march, and while entering in town the first place one can see is Shatabdi Dwar, but you can visit this place from outside only as to get entry prior permission required from Military officials, This place is maintained by Military people. From here we moved towards our next destination that was "Bhulla Lake" which is situated at the center of Lansdowne and also maintained by Military staff.It's a beautiful lake and opens for tourist from morning 10:00 am to evening 5:00 pm and closed on Wednesdays. We stayed there for some time, had snacks at the canteen situated next to this lake and move towards next attraction of Lansdowne i.e Tip and Top point. while traveling we stopped at St. Mary Church which is very close to this point, It is one of the oldest church and now a museum maintained by Indian Army.
From Tip and Top point, one can enjoy beautiful scenic views of mountains but it was freezing cold and snowy weather. This place was extremely cold in the evening with frosty winds. So staying there for long was quite difficult for me but it was an amazing place to spend quality time. Near to this place, there is Guest house which is maintained by Indian Army only and if one would like to stay, they can do booking as well.
Lansdowne is a town surrounded by beautiful mountains & greatly maintained by the Indian army. A small Market is also situated at the heart of the town with all basic necessities. While returning back we stayed and enjoyed at the beautiful "Kho" river it was freezing water on the stony bed and surrounded by lush green mountain, This river is flowing continuously along with Road from Duggada till Kotdwar.
Lansdowne is perfect weekend Gateway from Delhi and the best place for Peaceful mind and to fulfills Inner soul.
