What is the first thought that comes to your mind when you hear Landour? Peaceful, Quaint, Idyllic, Serene…well, for us, all of this and so much more.
It’s only been few days since we have been here, but it has already become one of our favorite find so far. Often referred to as the welsh town in India, this small hill station draws its name from an old Welsh village – Llanddowror. To say the least, this place is a hidden treasure in amongst the mountains.
With no particular agenda in mind, we have been exploring this place on foot (the best way to get around in Landour) and have successfully explored some bit of the town.
We have loved eating at some of the well-known eateries; the one that tops my mind is the Landour Bakehouse. A trip to this town is incomplete without a visit to this bakery. Not only the interiors are warm and welcoming (with a strong vibe of an old English styled bakery – like the ones in Downtown Abbey), the aroma of freshly baked bread is enough to make you want to sit and enjoy a leisurely meal.
Starting from Croissant to Chicken Sandwich to English Madeline (small sponge cakes coated with jam) followed by the much loved Crepes, the food is beyond delicious. Oh! Not to forget a mug of peppermint tea to go along with the meal – yes, we meant it when we said A Leisurely Meal!
Just can’t seem to get enough of the place and in case you are wondering, the bakery is also easy on the pocket.
We are absolutely enjoying our stay in this little heaven.
Next up on the blog is our trek through the Jabarkhet Nature Reserve.
Stay tuned to know more about our adventure.
