A day in Mussoorie! #MyFriendAlexa

I had visited Dehradun & Mussoorie over a long weekend. We had travelled from Delhi via road in our own vehicle. You can read my earlier post about Dehradun trip here. I only had few hours to spend in Mussoorie before starting my return journey to Delhi the same day.

Places to visit in Mussoorie

Camel’s Back Road – It is a naturally formed stretch in shape of camel hump. Good for trekking or horse-ride in early morning or late evenings.

Mall Road – It is centrally located marketplace. You can indulge in shopping & food. Almost all hill stations that I have visited have a similar named road. πŸ˜€

Shop at Mall Road

Lal Tibba – Β This point is located on the highest peak in Mussoorie. You can view snow-clad Himalayan range from a telescope established here.But too much rain may act as a spoiler!
Kempty falls – These falls are located approx 13 km away from Mussoorie. You can reach here by hiring a cab. The falls are easily accessible and you can enjoy the water. Unfortunately, due to time constraint I was unable to visit the falls.
Cloud’s end – It is a colonial bungalow converted into heritage hotel. The surrounding area has dense forest covers which offers tranquility.
Cambridge Book Depot – If you are a bibliophile then this place is a must visit for you. Author Ruskin Bond visits the bookshop on Saturday to meet & greet people. πŸ™‚
Mussoorie – the Queen of hills has lots to offer to its visitor. My personal experience was not so enchanting due to excess crowd over long weekend. Over commercialization & influx of vehicles lead to hours of jam on narrow hilly roads. Maybe, I will visit again on a quieter day & enjoy the beauty.
