Mussoorie is one of the most popular hill stations located at a distance of 290 km from Delhi in the Dehradun district of Uttarakhand. With a backdrop of the Shivalik range of the Himalayas and doon valley, Mussoorie, also known as Queen of The Hills, stands at an altitude of 7000 feet above sea level. Mussoorie was once the British summer capital with a cool and pleasant climate throughout the year.

The British remnants can be seen in the city in the archaic architecture of the hotels and churches. One of the most popular tourist attractions in Mussoorie is The Mall (also known as the Mall Road), which is a slightly steep boulevard with eateries and other shops lining its entire stretch. The Mall gives off a distinct colonial vibe from the little houses spread around the area to the architecture of even the lamp posts.

Another major highlight of Mussoorie is the Ropeway to Gun Hill. Gun Hill is the second-highest peak in Mussoorie, and tourists can avail of the cable car ropeway ride to Gun Hill, which offers an enchanting view of the entire city and the surrounding Himalayan mountains.

The adjoining little hill station of Landour, along with Mussoorie, Barlowganj and Jharipani together form the greater Mussoorie.  With a lot of waterfalls, the town of Dhanaulti in the vicinity, and the remains of colonial architecture, Mussoorie has everything to make a memorable vacation.
