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.

Since its just an hour's drive away from my college, Mussoorie is generally my weekend getaway. Being located at a high altitude is what makes the weather here cool and hence, I will suggest carrying windcheaters and full sleeves. A smooth drive to Mussoorie, aided by spicy hot Maggie and freshly brewed tea from roadside stalls, makes the journey a real refreshment. After wandering on the Mall road, I head straight to George Everest for trekking. The climb is exhausting but watching the rays of the rising Sun fall and highlight the outline of the mountains feels like watching a painting come to life.
Mussoorie is one of the best weekend holiday destinations. It has a lot to offer from trekking activities to sightseeing to enjoying bonfires. My three day trip included visiting the great author Ruskin Bond’s house, Kempty Falls, Happy Valley and Lal tibba. I also enjoyed the savoury momos at Chinese restaurants which are a speciality of Mussoorie. My trip also included visiting Dhanaulti, a region close to Mussoorie which had various Maggi joints as tourist attractions. In my opinion one should keep enough warm clothing as the weather is likely to change at any point of time. Also, do keep a pair of comfortable shoes for the hilly terrain.
Mussorie, its a mesmerising place. I loved it. Also the weather is also good. I have visited that place in winters as well as in summers. In winters, u can witness snowfall whereas in summers, the weather is quite good
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.
