Mussorie – the Queen of hill-stations

On last weekend, one more crush for my hobbies ie., Travel & photography.
It’s Mussorie, a superb place that I have visited in North India.
I’ll never forget the experiences of Mussorie, its beautiful climate, sceneries, water falls, etc.,

Here are some scenaries and photographs from my Mussorie trip

Mussorie, the Queen of hill-stations which is at 6500 feet above the sea-level is located in Uttaranchal (Now called as Uttarakhand).

In 1820 Captain Young from the British army was very much attracted and influenced by the beauty of this place and made this place his residence and British army camp. This marked the foundation of a hill station called Mussoorie.

When to visit:
The best seasons to visit Mussoorie is between April to June and again during September to November. The spring season starts from September over here and it’s better to avoid visiting Mussorie in monsoon and winters as the roads are in very bad shape and there is snow fall in winter. You can have a best view of Himalayas in Spring season itself.

How we reach:
I went to Mussorie in a travel bus from Delhi. But the Queen of hill stations is very near to Dehradun ie., around 60km. Bus services are provided by Uttarakhand State transport authorities.

Places I visited:

  • Mussorie Lake – This lake looks like a Gateway which is located around seven kilometers on the highway to Dehradun.
  • Kempty falls – These are located around 13 kms from Mussoorie. This place was developed as a tourist destination in 1850’s period.
  • Gunhill – Gunhill is second highest point in Mussoorie located at 7500 feet above Sea level.
  • Mall road – The road which is famous for Shopping in Mussorie.
