Great.Will keep that in mind when I go next to Lansdowne. Feels really good to get in touch with so many 'like-placed' people. Jai Jharkhand.

Please somebody let me know how can Meerut city be avoided. I do not want to get stuck in Meerut morning traffic.
Try and hit Meerut by 5. It will be a breeze to go through.

Just want to check if you've done any recent trips and would you still stand by your statement regarding the route above.
Yes, the route is amazing.

# At Miranpur, the horse shoe road, that I had mentioned earlier was traversed and we reached a T-Point which showed Muzaffarnagar to the right and Meerut to the left.
# On this T-Point, Monty Million? QSR is located. It looked well lit and overall nice from the road.
# We moved towards Muzaffarnagar and after 12 kms, reached Jasnath.
# From Jasnath, we took a left turn for Khatauli that was 18 kms away. Inside Khatauli, after crossing the flyover, we again took a left turn to hit the expressway NH58.
#Road from Miranpur to Khatauli is good.Though it was dark, there was movement of some motorcycles and jeeps on this road.
# To our delight, we found Cheetal grand outlet at the junction of Khatauli road and NH58. After a cup of warm coffee and some snacks, we started on NH 58 towards Delhi. It was around seven fifteen in the evening.
# Muradnagar and its neighbouring cousins were surprisingly free of traffic snarls and we zipped through these places. Maybe, saturday evening and india-australia match played a part.
# We reached Noida Home at 09:15 PM after dropping bro-in-law at indirapuram.

Distance between Lansdowne & Noida Sector 61 was 256 kms. via Khatauli.
One correction,
Inside Bijnore, while returning from Lansdowne, a RIGHT turn is to be taken from a prominent chowk which has proper road signages.

After retracing the same route which we took while going, we reached Bijnore. The bypass cut was missed and we went inside the town. Luckily for us, this route inside town involved just one right turn and was without traffic jams.

Hi, I will be travelling to Lansdowne this weekend.

Can you please confirm if this right turn is the Najibabad Bypass road?

I am not sure if this is the najibabad bypass. After travelling for 6-7 kms along the canal, you take a left turn on the najibabad moradabad road. You touch the town again but it looks like the outskirts of the town.

I spoke to someone who happened to go inside the town, i.e. did not take the right turn at the canal.He wasted 90 minutes inside the town because of the traffic jam on account of an under construction flyover.

Hi All,

We will be travelling to Lansdowne in mid of April.
This is the first time we are travelling to Lansdowne.

Google throws up following route (Muradnagar/Meerut bypass/Khatauli/Miranpur/Bijnor/Najibabad/Kotdwara/Lansdowne):
https://www.google.co.in/maps/dir/In...29.8377457!3e0

Some queries:

1) Is this above route the most optimal and "safest" one? (since we would be travelling with an infant 1.5 yrs)

2) Any decent eating places in between?

3) Any other tips?

Can tell you till Bijnore from Noida/Delhi.

Take the Meerut bypass and use the toll road to reach Muzaffarnagar. You can stop at Midway, some 10-12 kms before Muzaffarnagar and this place has Haldiram, McDonalds, Subway, Coast Coffee etc etc.

On Muzaffarnagar bypass, keep watch for small boards pointing towards jansath take the right towards (under the flyover) and in 20-25 odd Kms you will reach Miranpur. From there it joins the road coming from meerut to Bijnore. Prominent signage you will not miss.

At Bijnore, take bypass and exit towards Najibabad road . Even if you miss the bypass, Bijnore is small town and need not worry. Just ask and you will get around.

NOTE: The meerut bypass road is a bit long but will be safest & least crowded. The road between Ghaziabad/Meerut is horrible and Between Muzaffarnagar to Miranpur is ok-ok. Good in patches and bad in some. It's a state highway.

I did Noida/Bijnore just few weeks back and this is the route I took. Much better than Meerut traffic.

Thanks Khan_Sultan,


A small doubt:

Why not take right turn from Khatauli towards Khatauli-Miranpur road and reach Miranpur directly instead of going to Muzaffarnagar and coming back?

The midway food/eating joint :-)

Plus the road is a tolled highway till that turn off from Muzaffarnagar bypass to Jansath. A bit longer but better roads.

Not sure of the road quality between Khatauli-Jansath.

Hey Team BHP Fam,

Planning a trip to Lansdowne in the end of June. Does anyone have an update on the current route situation?

Is the route highlighted in blue in the link better or should I take the NH9 route via Hapur?

Route is good, but if you can,look for another destination. The place has gone to the dogs with huge numbers visiting. With the current holiday season, you are guaranteed to be met with even more. I'd suggest kasauli/chail, but only drive down on a weekday. On weekends, the same holiday season means the thousands heading to Shimla throttle the road.

I know man, and given a choice I would have skipped landsdowne specially on a weekend, but my grandparents who have visited this place for so many years want to visit again, they have a special bond with Landsdowne and I just dont have the heart to say no.

Plus I am going on the eid weekend, and I am prepared for the "aam junta"

Planning on leaving from Delhi my 4-5 am to get a headstart on everyone else. Thank you for the route advise, ill stick to the one with meerut pauri via khatauli
