Let’s answer a few questions and understand why Mussoorie is a perfect holiday destination:

Whether you’re looking for a quiet holiday amidst nature or little adventure, whether you’re longing for a great sightseeing experience or just some relief from the heat, Mussoorie, the Queen of Hills, is the place for you.

Traveling Time – An undemanding 1 hour 55 minutes flight from Kolkata to Delhi and then prepare yourself to enrich your senses with the serene beauty and lush greenness on your 284 km drive to the desired destination.

The Perfect Place to Stay – Mussoorie being a holiday destination has innumerable comfortable places of stay, yet the best being The Grace Resort of the Fortune Group. Perched amongst the Garwhal Hills, 2500 meters above the sea level, Fortune Grace Resort overlooks the Doon Valley. The costs range from about Rs. 7,500 to Rs. 9,000 per night. Located on a hilltop, Jaypee Residency Manor features panaromic views of the Himalayas. In addition to 3 dining options, it boasts of an indoor pool, shopping arcade and a full service spa. The cost ranges between Rs. 12,000 - 15,000. As for the not-so-expensive places of stay, one can find many hotels such as Hotel Vishnu Palace where it will amount to not more than Rs. 4,000 per night.

Sights to See – The city will envelop you with its beauty and make you want to visit it, time and again. Visit ‘Chaardukaan’ in ‘Sister Bazaar’ early in the morning to witness the magnanimous view of Landour, the oldest settlement of the station and enjoy a hearty breakfast of pancakes, sandwiches and momos. The daytime is ideal time for a visit to Kempty Falls to enjoy the cascading waters and water sports. As for the evening, you can plan a visit to Gunhill and ride a cable car to reach the highest point so as to enjoy the chill and the scenic beauty. After the wonderful cable car ride, a visit to the mall road and camel road to enjoy street shopping would be a perfect way to complete the day. Yet as you do this, be prepared to walk the entire stretch, as no other mode of commuting is applicable.

Places To Eat – Just like any other hill station, Mussoorie has ample places to eat. Yet, some of these places serve finger-licking good food, which you will not be able to forget for days to come. Also, you don’t need to shell out a bomb for this amazing food, which is a great attraction and add on. If Chinese appeals to you, Kalsang and Rice Bowl on the mall road should be your picks. Clock Tower Café and Chic Chocolate are two places you can’t afford to miss if you’re looking for some real good food. Rest, food is not going to be much of a botheration on the trip as you will find eating joints at every small little corner of every street.

What Is It About Mussoorie Which is so Captivating − It’s not in every city that you decide to holiday in, that you’re going to find Ruskin Bond sitting and signing books for you. It is not in every city you visit, that you will be relieved from the hot climate even in the summer. It is definitely not in every city that you visit, that you will find yourself at a lack of words to describe the beauty. So without a second thought, pack your bags, and plan a short 3-day trip on maybe a long weekend and get started for a journey and holiday that is going to be cherished by you long after it ends.
