Visit the Tarkeshwar Temple and the Garhwal War Memorial.
The Tarkeshwar is a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva, and is a 30 km drive from Lansdowne. The temple is located in a dense Deodar forest, and looks particularly scenic in the morning. We hence recommend that you leave early for it. The route to Tarkeshwar Temple is also perfect for a refreshing, morning drive. It weaves through rolling hills covered with towering Deodar trees, just the kind that marks a perfect start to the day.
Your trip back to Lansdowne is about an hour long and you should be back for lunch. Unless you plan on eating at your resort, a little restaurant called Tipsy' cafe is your only alternative.
Post lunch, head out to the Garhwal War Memorial, which exhibits the illustrious history of the Garhwal Rifles regiment and its contributions to the Indian Army.
Thereon, all attractions - St. Mary's Church, Bhulla Tal and Sunset Point are stacked one behind the other on the same road.
St. Mary's Church over 100 years old. Due to structural weakness, it was declared unfit for regular church functions during the 1950s. The Garhwal Rifles restored the Church, and now run it as a museum showcasing the history of the Garhwal region.
Bhulla Tal is a manmade lake with a park that is maintained by the Army. It has its own restaurant, a mini bird zoo and boating facility in the lake.
Two kilometres further up is where you can see the sun wind down for the day. The best way to watch the sunset, however, is from inside the Army Public School, which is located just adjacent to the Sunset point.
