I'm a long-time resident of Landour and intimately know almost all there is to know about what to see and do in this serene colonial hill station. When I'm not conducting walks, I'm actively engaged in community causes, including cleanliness drives and water conservation. I'm an avid trekker and have completed many high-altitude treks in Uttarakhand. I love the hills and I believe the best way to experience the grandeur of hill towns is to walk, walk, and walk. And that's precisely how I would love to show Landour's natural beauty to those who visit Mussoorie.
