ABOUT MUSSOORIE

Mussoorie the Queen of hills is a famous hill station in Uttarakhand. Perched high above Dehradun with the nearest railway station just 32 Kms. away. Mussoorie was established by Capt. Young, a British Military officer in 1827. At a commanding height of more than 6500ft. Situated on the foot of Himalayan ranges, with spectular view of snow cladded mountains on one side and the panoramic view of Doon Valley on other side makes this hill station with its varied Flora & Fauna, nothing less than paradise on earth.

A fascinating destination on the gateway to Holy Shrines of Yamunotri & Gangotri.

At the onset of Winter, the view of winter line in the sky is a very rare view either in Mussoorie or in Switzerland.

Mussoorie rests in the lap of Mother Nature with an awe-inspiring view of snow capped Himalayas and the Garhwal Range in the day time and the glittery Doon valley at night. Standing at an altitude of about 6500ft above sea level, the place is located at a distance of about 250kms from Delhi. Nearest airport is at Jolly grant, which is 60kms away from Mussoorie and is situated nearby Dehradun. Nearest railway station is at Dehradun, about 35kms from Mussoorie. The place is well connected through steadfast bus and taxi services from both airport and railway station. Mussoorie is a fascinating destination on the gateway to Holly Shrines of Yamunotri and Gangotri shrines of Northern India travelers.

Besides its stunning picturesque beauty, Mussoorie has an all season charm, wherein winters bluster bone chilling winds with frequent snow showers, summers are incredibly pleasant with fluctuating temperatures, monsoons make the place all the more romantic with clouds sheathing all over and the greenery is at its full bloom from September to November. The cold climate of Mussoorie demands residents and visitors to be well clad in woolens all the year around. Indeed, one can spot a lot of woolens, raincoats as well as overcoats in the market. The main shopping areas of the Library, Kulri Bazaar and Landour Bazaar sell curious wooden decorative souvenirs and gift items, ethnic jewellery as well as antiques. One can also pick beautifully handcrafted oak wood walking sticks, once been a popular produce at Mussoorie. Mussoorie is further famous for offering some of the world's top rated boarding schools and country's first Indian Administrative Service (IAS) training academy.
