Initially i started this blog as a photoblog depicting pictures from all my travels. But lately i've realized that i need to share some of my travel experiences too. So here it goes.. celebrating Life and its wonderful experiences.

Landsdowne - The Weekend Gateway!

28th June 2016, New Delhi.

Recently I had been to Landsdowne with my office colleague. Though the trip was more of a mingling trip compared to my usual travel trips, I still could find out some time to get to know the place while talking to people and roaming around.

Landsdowne is a small army cantonment in the foothills of the Himalayas. It is quite a serene place away from the crowd. There are few tourist spots in the town compared to other hill stations around the place. And these tourist spots can easily avoided. Then why one should go to Landsdowne? For me there can be mainly three key reason and i'm sure at least one of the reason should fit well to any traveler.

If you love company then go there in a group and you will enjoy the company in a nice weather. A good company will almost made you forget that there are very few things to do or look over there.

On the contrary if you are a loner and love peace and serenity then you can roam around the town to get some great views. Stop by some tea stall and have a cup of hot tea in the morning or find a nice view point and spend the evening watching the Sun going down. At night you can find a nice resort and get a campfire done while sipping your drink. 

And the last one is for the fitness freaks (It’s just my perception and may not be true). What caught my attention in Landsdowne were the runners and cyclist in the town. Being an army cantonment I think fitness runs in their blood. They were in abundance - both local and travelers. So maybe you can make a trip to challenge your fitness level. I’m not sure about you but I’m for sure will challenge myself one day and that too very soon. Till then don't discard this weekend gateway from your list... Its just 5-6 hours drive from Delhi and can be your savior at times.
