YHAI’s Weekend Adventure – Mussoorie!

0 2,196

“The Queen of the Hills” is but an apt name for Mussoorie. Situated in Dehradun, Uttarakhand, Mussoorie is a magical place, waiting to be explored. There are umpteen sights here, which are spectacular. In fact, it is quite a challenge what to accommodate in a weekend trip! However, we have put together a lot of activity right from Day One for you to get the maximum out of this trip.

Mussoorie was the summer capital of British India and it is easy to see why. The vibe and warmth of this place starts right from the moment you step foot here. The first day takes you to Mussoorie Lake. A man-made lake with scenic views around, it makes for a great family time. Paddle-boats are available to go round the lake. Views of the nearby village and Doon valley can be enjoyed from this spot. This is a fairly recent addition to the sights of Mussoorie. The next stop is Mall Road, supposedly with a rich 180 year history. There are a number of cafeterias, souvenir-shops and small restaurants which can be visited. This place has a gentle, winter-feel as one walks around. You get ample free time of your own to enjoy Mall Road.

The next day, after having a good rest, we set out to Lal Tibba. Lal Tibba or Red Hill is a famous attraction for one and all. The viewpoint has a rugged terrain, so this little walk has to be considered. But once, you reach there, the views and captivating scenery will make you enjoy this spot. Keep your camera ready for clicking some memorable photos. Char Dukan and Picture Palace are visible from here. Lal Tibba is the highest point of Mussoorie, from here we go the second highest point, which is Gun Hill. Gun Hill is just off the Mall. Though you can go there by foot also, the ropeway is the main attraction. You can take this cable car from the Mall Road. The adventurous ones can go by foot, but it is a steep climb and the ropeway is a better option as it hardly takes a few minutes.

A visit to Kempty waterfall is a must for anyone visiting this hill station. This waterfall is a short distance from Mussoorie and is perennial throughout the year. The interesting story behind this name is it is made up of “camp and tea”, due to tea parties which were once held here in this picnic spot. This cascade of waterfall divides into two main falls. The second water fall can be reached by walking a little further. From this scenic spot, we have planned for a trip to the Amusement Park, where you can partake of various activities like zip lining, water zorbing, wall climbing, wire cycling and some other interesting water sports.
