Mussoorie Travel Guide

Overview

The charm of Mussoorie in Uttarakhand is unparalleled. ‘Queen of Hills’ Mussoorie has continued to be a popular summer destination since colonial times. It still attracts hundreds of weekend travelers, backpackers and foreign tourists on a regular basis. You can see the entire Doon valley lit up like tiny lamps at night from here. Prior booking at any of the hotels is a must at any time of the year. Old Mussoorie that has the Sisters bazaar is still hidden from the chaos of the main city. Mall road is the most frequented place with its many shops selling knick knacks. Gun Hill, Lal Tibba, Landour bazaar, Kempty Falls, Jwalaji Temple and Christ church are popular places. Taking a ride on the 400 meter ropeway provides for a scintillating view of the valley. Small Tibetan cafes here provide different experience with good food, good music and quirky ambience. Mussoorie is also the abode of the famous writer Ruskin Bond and if you are lucky enough you can get his autograph during one of the book reading sessions organized locally on day tour to Mussoorie.

How to visit:
