A doodwala (milkman) from Kolti or Kimui village, carries his 'dol' with milk in it from Sister's Bazaar in Landour towards Prospect point and Kilmarnock / Rosebank. (Prospect Lodge in the clip belongs to St. Thomas' School, Delhi)

Before reaching the hill-top town of Landour, the milk-men converge at a municipal water supply tap below Bataghat bazaar where they top-up their milk supply with an ample quantity of water, to get the right consistency for sale!!!

This year's winter snowfall has set a record of sorts! We normally don't experience more than a few inches of snow at a time in the Landour-Mussoorie region. This year, we have had a sustained two weeks of repeated snowfall which has turned to ice on the steep and narrow road leading up from Ruskin Bond's house and Momo's Doma's Restaurant up to Char Dukani and Rokeby Manor. Some of the best SUV's have not been able to handle the icy conditions and skiddiness and have backed off to Mussoorie.

Regardless, Landour was left looking lovely and aloof! So enjoy our imagery which was taken from the 6th to the 9th of January 2012...

Landour in the snow and cold. Freezing weather in Landour brings the temperature down to about -2 degrees Celcius. On the 6th of January 2012, the maximum temperature for the day was 2 degrees Celcius! The maximum standing snow was around 1 foot. It has not snowed like this in Landour for about 8 or 9 years and because of so much snow there were no cars going up to Landour and cars were skidding, everything was white and people were giving up on their visits up the hill. If all the cars would not have skidded and the roads turned icy, Landour would not have been so empty and quiet like it was but would instead have been crowded with 'snow tourism' from the plains!
