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.
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
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.
