Hello Friends!

I hope you all are doing good and safe.

Today I am sharing one of the most memorable trip of my life. Although trip was short but memorable. There is a hill station in north Indian state of Uttarakhand which was named after then viceroy of India- Lord Lansdowne. Now I guess you already figured out the hill station???? Yes its a beautiful Lansdowne which is situated in Pauri Garhwal district. Me and my friends made a plan to have a short break from our daily routine(Thak gaye the yaar????). We started searching out the destination and we chose Lansdowne as our destination. The distance is around 250 km from Delhi.

Day 2

We booked Eden river side camp situated in Jogi Bhilangi for stay. Lansdowne is 20 Km away from this camp. It is a nice camp with all basic facilities and mountain view.

As you can see , we enjoyed the day with full blast and made a wonderful life time memory of that day. It is much needed soothing break which helps us to revive ourselves. I must say it is the best vacation spot. We spent the evening at camp only. Enjoyed rest of the day with chit chat(Lyf me kya chal raha hai, Kuch to krna hai) and of course partying(ye kese bhul skate hai)????.

We took the following route to Lansdowne.

Delhi--> Meerut--> Bijnore-->Kotdwar--> Lansdowne

It is 45 km from Kotdwar. The road quality is good all the way to Kotdwar. The drive from Kotdwar to Lansdowne is quite scenic and you can feel the peace and beauty of hills.

In the motion of excitement, we could not rest much. After resting little bit we again headed forward to explore the beauty of Lansdowne. There are many places in Lansdowne where one should visit while staying. Below I am mentioning the places we visited.

After visiting two places, we came back camp to enjoy the peace of hill station and have some fun on the river flowing next to our camp.
