If your idea of the perfect holiday involves tranquil hills, untouched nature and a holiday experience that is unadulterated in the truest sense of the term, Mussoorie is the place you should be heading to. Nestled amidst the foothills of the Garhwal Himalayan ranges, Mussoorie, also known as Queen of The Hills, stands at an altitude of 7000 feet above sea level, and has a cool, pleasant climate throughout the year. The pristine, natural beauty of Mussoorie makes it a very popular choice of holiday for honeymooners. If you want to enjoy the beautiful sight of the rolling green slopes juxtaposed with the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas, Mussoorie is the place for you to be.
This beautiful hill station is the perfect retreat from the sweltering weather of the plains, and the fact that it was a very popular holiday destination during the British era can be seen from the multitude of British remnants engulfing the city, such as the archaic architecture of the hotels and churches dotting the entire terrain. One of the most popular tourist attractions in Mussoorie is The Mall (also known as the Mall Road), which is a slightly steep boulevard that has eateries and other shops lining its entire stretch. From the little houses spread around the area to the architecture of even the lamp posts, The Mall gives off a distinct colonial vibe.

- Just 33km from Dehradun and around 7 hours from Delhi makes Mussoorie one of the easiest accessible hill town. Mall road is the most happening area here and you can easily spend a day or two shopping and eating at cafes. However, it also gets crowded on long weekends and could be a turn off for those looking for peace and calm up in the mountains.
- You can dress in the local attire and click beatiful photos. These might sound cheesy, but they become beautiful memories later.
Mussoorie or the 'Queen of hills' is a wonderful destination to spend your next long weekend. Take a tourist bus or cab to cover as many places in a day as possible. Make sure to visit the Gunhill point and the famous Kempty falls( carry an extra pair of clothing if you wish to play in the water). The Buddhist temple in the Happy Valley along with several other temples in and around the city attract a number of tourists. However, being a hilly area, cabs do not drop you everywhere hence you may have to travel on foot.
Scenic beauty with bitter life lessons. What better deal can you ask of your weekend getaway vacation? Mussoorie boasts of tranquility and is a foodie paradise. It attracts a lot of tourists from across the country, many of whom opt to arrive by road. So what if there is parking space for only 1500 cars even though the number of local cars stands close to 4500 with an additional 2000 tourists cars arriving daily during peak season. Surely the enthusiastic tourists can find a parking space somewhere on the mountain slopes. If not, then even better as the authorities would tow it, charge exorbitantly, Shame/harass you, take away your DL/RC and eventually trap you in a court hassle. All this for an offence (if it may be called so) which legally has a Rs.100 fine (on the first offence). Remember this is done to only make you mentally strong. Additionally, it'll break your naive shackles which made you believe you deserved peace atleast for a day from your stressful life. Life doesn't have a break, sooner you realize the better. P. S: ppl who're weak at sarcasm, here's the concise and straightforward meaning: don't go to Mussoorie with your own vehicle. You'll end up regretting one way or the other.

Famous as 'Queen of Hills' the place is truly mesmerising. Mussoorie is very well known for amazing views and the most delicious variety of Maggie.
The place gets crowded during its peak season. Specially reaching there can get tiresome as the roads get jammed with cars.
The place is meant for all age groups. Be it senior citizens looking for a quiet and beautiful stay or a couple looking for a romantic time or friends looking for having a good time together. The Maggi points in between are great to get hot Maggii and for taking pictures.
