Overview

Situated at an altitude of 2003 mts in the Garhwal hills, Mussoorie is a small hill town in Uttarakhand. They who had relished the flavour and charm of this town will definitely come here again. India is rich in hill stations but still Mussoorie sits complacent on her title- “Queen of the Hills” bringing out romance and adventure.

 

Doling rich in beauty and tradition, Mussoorie was a favourite holiday spot of Indian rulers as well as the colonists.  The British officers who escaped to here from the summer heat of the plains beautified this Himalayan pastureland further with many colonial bungalows. This may account for the salon-like ambience, vigorous social life and ample entertainments here unlike other quiet hill stations.

 

Mussoorie is perched on a 5-km long ridge with the shape of a horseshoe on the foothills of Garhwal Himalayan ranges. The town swells with visitors during summers. But still the air here is serene with the majestic mountains and verdant plains.

 

The many heritage bungalows and cottages here add to Mussorie’s beauty. The main roads of Mussoorie are always crowded with tourists and its hill slopes are packed with hotels and bungalows. So, the thick jungle surrounding it in just an 8 km ride is a pleasant surprise.

 

Though known for its scenic beauty and climate, Mussoorie has got something for all senses. Trekking, hiking, roller skating rinks, waterfalls and horse riding are there for the adventure lovers. Quiet romancers can enjoy stroll along the green woody pathways, shops, corners and gardens here. There are many things one can do in this charming and crisp hill town.
