Gun Hill Overview

Ranked 3 of 31 sightseeing in Mussoorie

Gun Hill is one of the popular tourist attractions of Mussoorie, possessing historical significance dating back to pre-independence. It is believed that a canon was fired from the place at a fixed time on every afternoon. This firing at the hill provided an idea of time to the local residents of the destination and they adjusted their watches accordingly.

Situated at a height of 400 ft above The Mall, the location presently houses a water reservoir of the destination. Tourists can witness snow capped peaks of Himalayas and The Mall on either side of the place.

Gun Hill can be easily reached by taking a ropeway ride, which is operated frequently for transfer of passengers. In addition to this, tourists can also cover a path from The Mall to reach the location by foot.

At the TOP

The top most point of Mussoorie hills. The english administration got the water supply tanks made here for supply to the town. Take the cable car to reach the top. A tough winding road also goes to the top but only a few of us can walk up, because its steep. Enjoy the breathtaking view of the himalayas and the Dehradun valley ...

Top of mussorie

Visited Gunhill by trolley. Its on the top of mussorie. You get a wonderful view of nearby places on Gunhill. It was so cold out there on the top. We were shivering badly. There were a lot of games for children to enjoy. Highlight is the telescope view from there

Gun Hill, Mussoorie

It is located on the Mall Road. One can take the Ropeway to reach the top of the Gun Hill. View of Mussoorie from top is beautiful. One can have food from the small restaurants situated there.

Nice place to visit

Every one should take ropeway from Mall road end (besides Hotel Mall palace or Tourist information centre) nice view from the top and it is operational till 8 P. M. From 10 A. And it is better to take some water along-with you so that you are not required to buy that) Have maggi on the top and enjoy natural beauty.

Very picturesque area

One has to reach here by ropeway, very picturesque area. This place is almost on the top of Mussourie, many mela type games can be played here, there is a water storage plant for whole Mussoorie, on that plant there is plane space where it exists. Actually gun hill point is ruined near this place, it was of britishers time, still old type of gun is kept there.

Great view from hill top

Use ropeway to reach hilltop. Spend some time there enjoying the view. Good eating options are available there. Few games to play around with kids and adults. Later come back to mall road via ropeway. But waiting time too much for ropeway on long weekends.

The view is very good

The beauty of Gun Hill has been lost with all the commercialization. As soon you step out from the cable car you are surrounded by numerous stalls and shops with all shopkeepers shouting and pursing you to go to their stall/shop.Nevertheless, the view is very good and luckily we went to a shop where we got a very good view of the valley and enjoyed maggi and apple beer as well.

One of the highest points of Mussoorie

The Gun hill is one of the highest points of Mussoorie and getting up there you need to wait and hour in the queue of the another ropeway. Its ok for a short visit as Mussoorie has less sightseeing options.

Amazing Sunset view

This place is extremely well-placed for Sunset. You get a very good view of the peaks and some places through Binocular. The around looks like a festive area. You take a Cable Car to reach the place. You can spend more time to enjoy the view of valley & sunset. Would recommend a must visit place.

Awesome place on TOP of a HILL

I have been there last year, I reached to Gun Top and it was quite awesome place for doing shopping of Fancy Items and food items. Many items are very beautiful as it looks like a speciality of Mussoorie. It was a paisa wasool trip for my family. You can carry a camera to make the moments memorable.
