Mountains have always been my best friends, I grew-up by with them and also gained experiences for life. Last year, I visited another Nature's own place- Lansdowne, ah! if only, I had the words to express the feelings which I had when I first saw the place, it was utterly beautiful. It's a place which gives you the feeling that the God himself has made this place with loads of love and care.
My trip was a 2 days trip. We drove down from meerut and it took us 5 hours to reach the place. Lansdowne is 2 hours ahead of Kotdwar and trust me when I say this that you'll find no man on the way even strolling around, it's like as if you are entering the house of the Nature.
I stayed there in the guestroom of Garhwal Center (a perk of being a fauji kid) and so the stay wasn't must of a price, but the mansion in which I stayed was from one of those colonial times- royal yet mysterious, though it is said to be haunted, but fortunately or fortunately I didn't experience any sort of para nominal activity even though I went out for a stroll at 2 am.
