Hotel Raj 8989 is worst place to stay. Mussouri is Awesome

Mussouri is far mesmerizing than we thought. Once you stay in here you will know how beautiful the place is. The whether was lovely with clouds entering hotel rooms. The serenity in the lap of mountain is peaceful and we loved to spend there whole day. Must visit places are Lalo Tibba, Santura Devi Temple and Buddha Garden . Kempty falls is also good. In case visiting in Snow time, Dhanolti is best place to go.
