Let me introduce you to the “Queen of Hills”. This was the first time I travelled to mussoorie. Though I have visited the other hill stations like Manali, Nainital, Lonavala etc.
I visited Mussoorie in July, everyone knows that this is a rainy season for the hill station and lots of people avoid to go in this season. But believe me if you want to see the nature at its best, visit mussoorie in monsoon. Beauty of mussoorie is at its best during monsoon. Even though you can visit mussoorie in winters and summers but I will recommend visiting at this time of the year. This is totally upto you. If you like to see the snow you should choose winter and if want to get a relief from heat in summer then this place is for you. Also, you will be getting less crowd and so you can enjoy in peace.
It depends of what occasion you are going to Mussoorie. You can make a long trip If you are looking to spend peaceful time but for exploring the hill station 2 to 3 days are enough. One thing to note here is if you are travelling to mussoorie, please plan a day for Dehradun as there are some good and exciting places to visit and also its near by to Mussoorie which is approximately an hour travel.
How to reach : Best way to go to mussoorie is by your own car or you can also take a cab but this may be costly. One other way is taking a Volvo bus which goes from Delhi “Kashmiri gate” and “Gurgaon old bus station” if you travelling from Delhi NCR. I was travelling from Delhi. These will cost between 800-900 per person which is quite pocket friendly. You can leave in the night and can reach Dehradun by morning so these buses are perfect regarding your office or college timings. I have taken the bus of 8:00 pm from Gurgaon and reached Dehradun at 4:30 AM. You also have an option to choose flight from Delhi to Dehradun or from whichever city you are travelling.
