Perched on top of a cliff overlooking the beguiling Mussoorie valley, George Everest’s House offers a sense of serenity, tranquility and nostalgia. Built in 1832, the house is located in Park Estate, 6 kms west of Gandhi Chawk in Mussoorie and is also popularly known as Park House. With panoramic sights of the scenic Doon Valley on the side, mighty Aglar river valley and spectacular Himalayan peaks in the north, Sir George Everest's House holds an old world charm and draws history buffs, nature enthusiasts and adventure travellers to visit it. Although in a dilapidated crumbling state, the ancient dwelling tells the paramount tale of Colonel Sir George Everest.
Sir George Everest owned this mountain house in Mussoorie, India and spent a grand total of 11 years living here and using it as his observatory and laboratory. Although, very derelict and in a precarious state, the house still holds its walls and has a roof; and is likely to be converted into a museum soon. The interiors have been stripped of any belongings but the doors, fireplace and windows still remain in place. The walls have been covered in graffiti although it is whitewashed very often. George Everest's House now comes under the jurisdiction of the Tourism Department
