Located 10km away from the main city from where you could view the mighty hills, little you would guess the haunted story behind. Once upon a time, there were 50,000 workers who worked in the mine. It so happened that all these workers were choked and died just like that. Many stories say it was the presence of a with him while many say a curse. From the on paranormal activities take place that it is locked and shut down till date. Mussoorie is a popular honeymoon spot of India, filled with lovely spots like kempty falls, lake, Lal tibba, clouds end and company garden to explore.

As a child when I used to read Sydney sheldon or Mary Higgins Clarke or Robin cook, the very eeriness would give a chill feeling followed by lot of scary thoughts. These thoughts made me go behind the haunted places and find the stories. I wont say I was too strong and at the same time too bold to listen to these stories, but to say the truth each place, each story was an experience to listen too.
