Best things to do in Mussoorie and sightseeing in Mussoorie

A quick getaway destination for Delhi-NCR residents, Mussoorie or the 'Queen of Hills' is the most favoured place for anyone battling urban heat. It remains quite crowded from May to July, as popular hotels and hangouts such as Mall Road, Mussoorie Lake, Kempty Falls and Gun Hill remain pervaded with tourists no matter where or what you may set your eyes upon. But if you carry the spirit of an explorer within you, Mussoorie can surprise you in many ways. For instance, if you curious to check out where the man who Mt. Everest is named after, once lived, you can reach the house and laboratory through a picturesque 4 km walk from Library Bazaar or Gandhi Chowk. Ditch the customary visit to Kempty Falls and take an uplifting trek to the quiet, serene and crystal clear Jharipani Falls instead. Mussoorie, when mist free, provides frame-worthy views of the Himalayan ranges, which can be enjoyed at points such as Lal Tibba, Nag Tibba and Camel Back Road, all of which need to be trekked or walked to, with the effort being worthwhile. Devalsari, a village quietly burrowed 55 km away from Mussoorie, is the gateway to the Nag Tibba trek and a location perfect for seeing beautiful butterflies and birds in the heart of nature. For those curious to delve into Himalayan life, history, art, culture and spirituality, Soham Heritage and Art Centre gives exquisite displays of the former, through various artefacts. As for foodies, restaurants such as Neelam, Imperial Square, Meeting Point Cafe and Casa Mia bakery do justice to North Indian, European and Tibetan cuisines and also offer delicious cafe knick knacks and drinks.

There's no point in beating around the bush so I'll just come straight out with it. This is the most disappointing part of Mussoorie and can definitely be excluded out of your itineraries. Its a flat ground on top of a hill with restaurants and shops and Maggi points all around. The irony is that the restaurants are named 'Himalayan View', 'Snow View' etc. But they block any chance of getting a good view. And then there's the irritating photographers who will eat your head until you let them click you dressed in pahaadi clothes and carry a flower basket on your head. You can reach this place by a not-so-spectacular trolley ride. I have heard that there is a hill trek also but haven't tried it. The verdict : this place is definitely worth a miss.

We took a taxi to reach the bottom of the falls. There were very few people there and we had Maggi and tea at the small shop there. The next time was with my hostel mates. We walked downhill from the main road to reach the bottom and had a wonderful time there. We were 11 girls and went crazy clicking pics and having some water fun. On the way back we got a bit adventurous and decided to take the dirt track going vertically up instead of the standard route. The outcome was a few scratches here n there and a lot of leeches in our feet. Overall we had loads of fun on this adventurous trek. Apart from these visits I went there thrice again and each time was a unique experience on its own. I fell in love with the place because there was no commercialization and I could thoroughly enjoy nature in peace.

Little Llama Cafe - Mussoorie

I reached the hotel late night on 15th. The next morning I was under the cold weather and was looking for a cosy and comfortable place to drink some hot liquids. I had seen this cafe before on my previous travels. So I thought to give it a try. The place is located a few minutes on the road towards Landour which is right next to the Picture Palace. The cafe was really comfortable when I stepped in. I sat right next to the window that had a pleasing look of the valley. The clouds came and went. It rained for a while, and then the sun shined in all its glory. Who wouldn't enjoy to sit at a cafe like this? I will! always! I ordered a cup of hot chocolate and some steaming hot chicken momos. The hot chocolate was the best I ever had. I couldn't find a cup of chocolaty goodness like that even in a city like Delhi. The food was delectable as well. I spent many hours sitting there writing about my travels and some poetry. I plan on returning to the place again and spend some more time talking to the people there. This time I will try the Chamomile Tea which is a huge hit, as I have heard from other people.

The Mall Road - Mussoorie

The Mall Road is famous area in Mussoorie, famous for city walk and shopping.
Personally I would prefer the Shimla or Nainital Mall Road any day over this crowded road. I guess I'm being harsh but really can't help it. My idea of a perfect hill station is a peaceful solitary getaway from your normal life and Mussoorie is the exact opposite of that. Its all so cluttered and full of shops and tourists. There is an awesome omlet shop on the main road. Ask anyone there and they would direct u to it. There are some stretches which are relatively less crowded and offer magnificent views of the Doon valley. And no matter how crowded it is, its hard to complain when you're walking in clouds. That's the best part i guess. The weather in Mussoorie is almost always perfect and a walk down this winding road always lights you up. And it gets even better when it snows.
