This was my first visit to Dehradun.
Actually, It was totally unplanned & random. We (Me and my two friends) had gone to dehradun to attend a wedding in april & only then we made a plan to visit dehradun. However, due to the lockdown in uttarakhand, we could not explore more places. But this trip was absolutely wonderful & truly fun.
First of all we went towards the landour. Landour is a small cantonment town which lies in a close proximity to Mussoorie. It is at a distance of about 33 Km from Dehradun & is a perfect weekend getaway for the residents of Dehradun & Mussoorie.
The unsafe part during this trip was the weather. It was the month of April & a heavy rainfall was happening there, leading to the possibility of land slides in hilly areas. But then we thought well that can be taken up as another challenge. We stayed here in a cottage 'The Cliffe Cottage & Cafe'. The view from this place was too beautiful & mesmerizing.
The next day we explored Landour. The scenic town of Landour is loaded with tranquility & serenity of the Garhwal Himalayas.
In evening we made a plan to visit Dalai Hills as we had to return to Delhi, next day. Dalai Hills is one amongst the very magnificent & extremely beautiful places located in Mussoorie. It is decorated with the Buddhist prayer flags all over & has a statue of lord buddha.
'It's a custom of the mountains (Wherever you go in Mountains) that without Maggi & Momos your trip will remain incomplete'. So we had pahari tea, maggi & momos from a local shop here in Dalai hills.
We enjoyed the trip & had great memories there. There are some other magnificent attractions in Dehradun like FRI, Robber’s Cave, Maldevta,Sahastradhara,Tapkeshwar Temple,Shikhar Fall (which are on my bucket list)
I am looking forward for another trip to the doon to explore other places as well.
