Okay! So first of all, this wasn’t my first trip to Mussoorie. I have been to Mussoorie twice before and all I did was nothing. Confession: I underestimated Mussoorie. But this time I had my checklist ready, my shoes, my shades and my zest, everything ready.
I had to plan a weekend trip with two of my friends and Mussoorie is the perfect getaway for the Delhiites, anyway (when you have a leave crunch). We had our bus and hotel pre-booked for convenience since it was more of a planned leisure trip than an unplanned adventure.
We boarded our bus from Anand Vihar ISBT in the evening and it dropped us at Library Chowk around 5:00 in the morning. My encounter with the chilly October morning in Mussoorie was one helluva adventure. We had our rooms booked at Fortune Resort Grace but their early arrival charges were so ‘grace-ful’ that ‘un-fortunately’ we had to take a shelter at some decent place for few hours, later only to magnify the luxury of Fortune Grace. We relaxed ourselves after a budgeted and bumpy ride in a roadways bus (there are no direct Volvos) from Delhi to Mussoorie.
Day 1 was dedicated to biking and Day 2 was for hiking.
Day 1: Biking - Camel's Back Road - Little llama Café - Mall Road
