Reasons to go to Mussoorie

1A Himalayan adventure, Mussoorie
A Himalayan adventure, Mussoorie

Why: Just before families deal with the summer holidays, Mussoorie is calm peaceful and uncrowded. This is also the best time to explore trekking, camping and rock climbing in these parts of the mighty Himalayas.  Mussoorie is a popular choice amongst travellers because of its scenic views, lush green hills, amazing views of the Doon Valley and Shiwalik ranges on the south. Weather is the main attraction of Mussoorie as even during the summer months it's cool and pleasant.

HolidayIQ reviewer Dan Dan says, “Mussoorie is very close to Delhi and very easy to commute to. When you think of spending the weekend on a hill station, it's Mussoorie that comes to mind. It has excellent weather during summers. 'Kempty fall' is the USP of Mussoorie and you cannot resist being there.”

Carry clothes for pleasant weather and suitable for adventure. Warm clothes for the night, a suitable pair of sturdy shoes and sunglasses are the most useful picks from eBay for a fun and safe holiday.

5Bhadraj Hill Trek
Bhadraj Hill Trek

The most unique feature of this trek are the topographical diversities one comes across, like an anomalous variance between the thick forests on the northern slopes to the bare grasslands of the southern slopes. This bizarre anomaly makes this such an appealing journey.

Jay talks about his wonderful stay at the Amber Vermout Estate. He shares: The Amber Vermout Estate is the best place to stay in Mussoorie. Has a great location. Fantastic and supportive staff. Good food, luxurious rooms and above all great watch pad to view scenic Mussoorie besides its reception desk where you can spend a splendid evening watching sunset with your loved one.

Tip: The trek can be completed in a day but we recommend taking 2 days and enjoying an overnight stay on the mountain top.

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.
