Picturesque Hilltop in Pauri Garhwal
On a hilltop, surrounded by peaks and valleys as far as the eye can see, AstreVue is universally regarded as the best located resort in the Lansdowne area. Beyond the Nayar valley, on clear days, one can see some of the tallest peaks of the Himalayas, including Thalay Sagar, Kedarnath, Satopanth, Chaukhamba, Kamet, Hathi Parbat, Dhaulagiri, and Trishul. The Khoh valley rolls down to the southwest, with the Charekh mountain top, where the Charak Samhita is supposed to have been written, forming the horizon.
AstreVue is located in Gumkhal, at the intersection of the Meerut-Pauri highway and the Lansdowne-Rishikesh road. It is a 6-hour drive from Delhi starting along the Meerut expressway and going through Khatauli, Miranpur, Bijnor, Najibabad, and Kotdwar. It is ideally located as a night halt on the way to popular religious, adventure, and wildlife destinations in Uttarakhand, many of which are within 6 to 9 hours drive from AstreVue.
Another way to get to AstreVue is by train. There are direct connections between Delhi and Kotdwar, from where it is an hour to AstreVue by taxi. Najibabad, less than 2 hours from AstreVue, is another important railhead, as it is on a trunk route from Howrah to Jammu Tawi, connecting many stations in Jharkhand, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Punjab on the way.
The Jolly Grant airport in the Dehradun-Haridwar-Rishikesh area, is about 3½ hours from AstreVue by road. A direct flight into Jolly Grant and a taxi to AstreVue from the airport is the fastest way to get here from the metro cities across the country. There is a choice of 5 daily flights from Delhi, and there are direct flights from Jaipur, Mumbai, and Lucknow.
