Pristime and soothing Lansdowne is place to come to for meditation and relaxation. Lansdowne is a small cantonment town in the Pauri Garhwal region of Uttarakhand. It an ideal getaway destination for a laid back holiday. It is one of the quietest and unspoiled hill stations I have ever seen in-spite of it being so close to Delhi and with good motor-able roads. Since it’s maintained by cantonment, it is clean and well maintained too.
Where to Stay: Blue Pine Resort, Lansdowne
Distance from Delhi – 287 km
Tucked away in the Solan District of Himachal Pradesh is a small cantonment hill station, Kasauli. A favorite destination of Britishers, whose inspiration can still be seen in the architecture of the old bungalows and the churches around. Himachal atttracts many tourists but somehow Kasauli remains somewhat eluded and has that old world charm about it. A scenic beauty with amazing weather is an all time favorite.
Where to Stay: Baikunth Resort, Kasauli
