About Mussoorie

Mussoorie, ‘The Queen of Hill Stations’ is in close competition with Nainital as Uttrakhand’s most popular hill station. Nestled along a 2km ridge, overlooking the Doon Valley it boasts the most stunning vistas of the Himalayas beyond. Our pick of the best places to stay in Mussoorie are great for both relaxation and travelling with the family.

A popular destination during the Raj it has some impressive colonial buildings and bungalows that remain today.

Just off the main Mall road, take the cable car up to Gun Hill. On a clear day it has far reaching views across the Himalayas on a misty monsoon day it is eerily beautiful.

A leftover from the British, Christ Church with its stained glass windows and visible steeple is still a landmark in town. Built in 1836 it is reported to be the oldest church in India.

Like Nainital, Mussoorie enjoys temperate weather in the summer months but can be very busy. During monsoon it is esoterically beautiful, shrouded in mist and in winter, covered in a layer of snow.
