Blue Pine Valley- Lansdowne

Lansdowne is one of the quietest hill stations of India and is popular since Britishers came to India.

It is situated at an altitude of 1,700mts above sea level surrounded with thick oak and blue pine forests in the Pauri Garhwal district of Uttarakhand state. Lansdowne got its name from Lord Lansdowne, who was the then Viceroy of India during the period of 1888 - 1894.
