HolidayIQ Reviewer yashodhan agarwal says, “Dreams comes true! If you want to enjoy living between clouds you must go to Mussoorie. What a place! Real natural beauty. 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! ”

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.
