Kotdwar at a distance of 44 km situated an elevation of only 370 m. Since Lansdowne is more than 1,300 m higher than Kotdwara, the drive from Kotdwara to Lansdowne is quite steep and scenic. The drive through Blue Pine trees on hills near Lansdowne is a wonderful experience. We traveled through a curvy roads looking like a dead end. It was a breath taking experience.
The War Memorial, at the Parade Ground of the Garhwal Rifles Center is an attraction for the visitors. Places of interest around the city are Tip n Top View Point offers excellent views of surrounding Shivalik Hills. Santoshi Mata Temple, Regimental Museum (also called the Darwan Singh Sanghralaya), Bhullatal Lake(a must visit for boating enthusiasts) St. Mary's Church, Lover's lane etc.
This place is great for those who wants to make their way to unexplored places. This place has great peace and the only noise you will hear is chirping of birds.
