Mussoorie
Top Travel & Tours Pvt. Ltd.


Mussoorie HillsLocated in the Garhwal hills at 6,578 ft, on a ridge 34 km north of Dehradun, Mussoorie is a land of immense natural beauty. Once a favourite outpost of the British, Mussoorie was famously called the 'Queen of the Hills'. The times have changed and the British have long since left India but Mussoorie's popularity has not faded. Its sylvan valleys, majestic mountains, pure, invigorating air, sulphur springs and panoramic views draw visitors to its embrace from far and wide.

The journey to Mussoorie starts in earnest once you are on the 34 km drive up from Dehra, steep winding roads, with innumerable hairpin bends are quite exhilarating. The uphill climb allows one to witness a dramatic change in scenery, the sal trees give way to oak and pine and the air acquires a palpable nip, the valley below spreads out in a chequered play of grey and green. Along with its verdant beauty, Mussoorie also offers an exciting range of activities to its visitors. From horseback riding through pristine mountain trails to hiking, boating and even a wide variety of video game parlours and an amusement park for children, Mussoorie has something to see and do for people of all ages and interests.

Attractions
The tourists love to promenade along the Mall, relax in plush hotels, drive out to the Deodar laden Dhanaulti or picnic at the gorgeous Kempty falls. Getting photographed in a variety of costumes at the Gun Hill, visiting ice cream parlours and video game shops are just some of its many well loved pastimes.

The Mall
Mussoorie's promenade, the Mall extends from the Library Bazaar or the Gandhi Chowk and ends at the Clock Tower where the Landour bazaar starts. Laden with shops selling trinkets, wood decoratives and gift items, one can also find brass statues, wooden boxes, Tibetan prayer wheels and ceramic vases here. The showrooms also stock good quality woollens and exquisite pashmina shawls. The hand carved oakwood walking sticks sold here are also popular among tourists. The mall also contains some of Mussoorie's famous eateries, cafes and restaurants which serve a wide variety of cuisines.

Kempty Falls
Kempty Falls 15 Kms from Mussoorie, these gushing falls are set amidst the picturesque surroundings of high mountain ranges, these pretty falls cascade down from an altitude of 4,500 feet and split further into five small cascades. The tumbling water and its fine spray creates a mist over the lake into which it falls, the lake is a popular swimming spot for tourists and a dip in these cool waters surrounded by lush greenery is a delightful experience.

Lal Tibba
The Lal Tibba has the distinction of being the highest peak in Mussoorie. The first houses built by the Britishers in Mussoorie were constructed on this hill. Still inhabited by the locals, it contains some gorgeous old bungalows, beautiful churches, an ancient cemetery and a rich historical legacy of the colonial past. A horse ride up the hill offers panoramic views of the snow covered peaks of the Himalayas up ahead.

Gun Hill
The second highest peak of Mussoorie and its most popular the Gun Hill overlooks some of the highest Himalayan ranges namely Bunderpunch, Srikantha, Pithwara and the Gangotri cluster. This point also provides a bird's eye view of Mussoorie's little town and the Doon Valley spread out below. The adventurous can walk upto the hill while the rest can take the equally thrilling 400 m ropeway ride to land at this vantage point. A small market atop the hill includes various eateries, video game parlours, and stores that rent out elaborate Gharwali costumes in which one could get photographed.

Mussoorie's other attractions include the curvy Camel's Back road, the Algar River, Happy Valley, Tibetan Temple, Hathi Paon and the various walks through its many slopes laden with rhododendrons and clad in Deodars.

Climate
Mussoorie has a pleasant and cool climate for most part of the year, however winter can get very cold with light snowfall in December and January. The rains between June and August are best avoided. After the rains however the hills are at their verdant best, fresh and green and flowers and shoots sprouting everywhere make October to early December and again March to June the best times to visit.
