Visiting Coming Weekend, need advice on mode of transport?
Save

We are off for a weekend trip to lansdowne from New Delhi.

I have already booked the Garhwal Express for Friday Morning and Return for Sunday evening but someday recommended that not having a vehicle in lansdowne will limit the options to see and do activities around.

We booked train so that we are not tired and not really interested in driving that long. Will we really be handicapped or taxis @ lansdowne will cover up??

Nothing to worry as such. Arranging cab for local s/s in Lansdowne won't be big issue. The hotel will help you for that.

Hi, thanks for your reply.

Would you know anything about staying at " Oak Grove Inn ". We are looking for peaceful weekend holiday.

Priority is to find a place with best views, apparently, huts are all booked now, thus, looking for next best option?

The nearest train station connecting Delhi to Lansdowne is Kotdwara. Taxis can be taken from Kotdwara to reach Lansdowne which will charge approx. Rs. 2000.

I would suggest you use the same cab for sightseeing in Lansdowne. There are not too many places.. Can be easily covered in half day.

Some good and popular resorts of Lansdowne are:

Kasang Regency

Blue Pine Resort.

Both these resorts have great views from their balcony. You can also do some trekking as well.

Lansdowne is great place to enjoy at peace. Do not expect great sightseeing spots.

Kausani is far off from Lansdowne. It cannot be done in day tour.

Not sure Sarojpatni2. Have never been on a road trip on this route.

Going by the map, it shows the distance is approx 270 kms. The best route to be taken is:

Lansdowne ->> Kathgodam ->>Pauri Garwal ->>Almora ->> Raniketh ->> Kausani.

Travel time should be approx. 5-6hrs.

Let's see what do other members on the forum have to say

When u r visiting Lansdowne, heaven on earth, forget going other places n just relax there itself. Great weekend getaway close to NCR. U can travel either by train or road. Both r good options.Best place to stay is with Neera n Rajiv at 'Prem Sadan', their family bunglow, reminiscent of the British Raj, perfect in every way, including home-made food of ur choice.Its located on Mall Road, just before the War Memorial Boys & Girls Hostel.Contact mob # 9458376714 / 9458623305.

Queries to experts here ( marketing folks pls avoid responding):

1. What is the typical driving condition - road and traffic from delhi to lansdowne

2. Best route to take , won't mind going few kms extra if road condition is good through the other route

3. Is this place expected to get too much occupied for last week of May ?

4. What are the best resorts/ hotels / huts to stay with some good views / food ?

5. How safe it is to travel there ? We are a married couple travelling.

Any key suggestions while travelling to this place.
