Forest Research Institute, DehradunReached Dehradun's Jolly Grant Airport and after checking in to Hotel Lalit Palace in heart of the City decided to not waste time and start to explore the nearest destination. Checkouts & Significance: Have a Look at the whole heartedly spreaded FRI Building, with a distinct feature of Arched columns & a Museum created for Students by the own faculty & staff of FRI.The museum is divided into 5 parts which gives us the information regarding the working of FRI and the nature viz. Forests, Animals, Tress & its products. Being a Construction professional,It was nice to see a typical building structure built during British Rule.I decided to walk through the Long walkways road with Tall Tress and spend time in the garden and reach the Main Gate of FRI.Locals come here to have leisure time in the vast garden.Tried to travel through the local Transport and explore the city before reaching the Hotel.

Kalsang Friends Corner - Dehradun

Located in Dehradun this restaurant offers authentic Tibetan, Thai and Chinese cuisine.
I am a big fan of momos and thukpa and everything Tibetan and this place is heaven for people like me. It is a small restaurant run by a Tibetan family and the food is to die for. This place is very popular among locals and tourists and you would mostly see young crowd here. They play some oriental Tibetan kind of music which is very relaxing. I made it a point to come here every time I visited Mussoorie. The popularity of this place is evident from the plethora of lovely messages left on napkins by visitors which are used for decorating the place. The decor is red, bold and lively. You can see many 'Free Tibet' posters all around the place. The staff is super friendly and the food is super yummy.
