Landour, "the tiara" of the "Queen of Hills", Mussoorie, is an idyllic town, dotted with old country homes reminiscent of the days gone by. Landour is located an altitude of 6,600 to 7800 ft and offers striking views of the Garhwal Himalaya with a wide vista of up to 200 km (125 miles) visible on a clear day. The seclusion and verdant mountain scenary are perfect to spend some quiet time and commune with nature. The area has long winding roads that are lined on one side by majestic deodar and pine groves. Here the air is nippier compared to the lower hill, and cleaner too as it is far away from shops and vehicular traffic.
