Lansdowne is one of India's most peaceful and unspoiled hill stations and has long been a popular tourist destination for British visitors. It is located in Uttarakhand's Pauri Garhwal district at an elevation of 1780 metres above sea level. Surrounded by thick oak and blue pine forests, Lansdowne, located far from the maddening crowds of the cities, is an ideal retreat for vacationers.
The historic town of Rishikesh is one of the main tourist and pilgrimage destinations in Northern India, drawing visitors from all over the world looking for peace of mind and inner calm. No wonder why the English rock band, The Beatles, went on to explore India’s rich spiritual heritage, passionately practising meditation in this perfect Himalayan setting—a deep forest on a small hillock on the eastern banks of the Ganges. Rishikesh is frequently referred to as the "capital of yoga" and for good reason, as visitors that come to the location learn yoga and meditation.
