It is my dream place and I have visited Mussoorie ttree times. Very reasonable in case of stay, shopping, food and celebration. I enjoyed 3 days in Mussoorie and never wanted to go back home from Mussoorie. The sayings about Mussoorie "Pahadon Ki Rani" is so true that no one will wish to return from Mussoorie. The real queen of hills. Everything is so natural and beautiful that everyone wants to visit again and again. I will surely visit again. So many points to see-Gun hill, Landour Bazar, Tapkeshwar Temple, Tibetian (Buddha) temple,Company garden, Laal Tibba, Kempty falls, Library road, Mall road, Jwala temple; just awesome! ” Read Full Review
