Lancedowne is the gateway to the heavenly Himalayas. Far from the crowd and nois, surrounded by thick Oak and pine forest, it is a very quite hill station. Till today Lansdowne has retained its quiet and serenity.
The town is named after Lord Lansdowne the then Viceroy of India who visited the place in 1884. The town has two churches made in the pre independence era although only one St. James is functional.
Lansdowne is located at an average altitude of 1700 metres above the sea level and experiences snowfall during winter months.
From the snow view point on a clear day one can view great Himalayan peaks like Chaukhamba etc.
Lansdowne was founded by Lord Lansdowne in 1887 A.D. Britishers established a cantonment here.
