The poetic view of the Valley

Mussoorie which is often referred as Queen of Mountains, is situated at a height of 1,880 metres (6,170 ft) with green hills & a fresh environment, with a distance of 34 KM from Dehradun.

Started my journey from Meerut on bike and reached this place where the below photo was taken in around 6-7 hours. Yeah, took a few chai breaks(much needed).

Found this beautiful place in between where the faint chromatic mist was just coming up the valley and I just stood there and felt that cool breeze.

Sure, winter was there and I could see the white walkers behind those luminous clouds, just kidding if you're into GOT stuff ....LOL!

Woah man! you getting that Gothic vibe from this place. That moody silence it had, sure can give chills to anyone visiting this place in the late hours.

So, first day I had to cover the Char Dukaan area and Lal Tibba, so this was around 5 PM before the sunset. While I was capturing the beauty of it, a troop of monkeys arrives and took over the place.You need to take a slight right from 4 dukaan to visit here. A must visit

Do have something to eat on your way to the Lal Tibba Sunset point as its a 1 km steep trek up the valley. Its a concrete trek so if you have a bike, you can take it up only at your own risk. The risk factor being, when you'll come down, you need some bloody good skills to keep the bike straight as I've already told you, its steep.

The vibe here is again magical, you could see the pic below.

So, finally I reached this brilliantly red and orange sunset view point called Lal Tibba. The winter line was spectacular. Do read about it in the post below.

If you look attentively then you can even see the peaks of Kedarnath, Badrinath and Banderpaunch.

Lal Tibba is one of the highest points of Mussoorie and stands at an elevation of 2275 metres from the sea level.

And with this, Day 1 ended. Will be writing about Day 2 and the top of the world views in Mussoorie. Thanks for reading and I would really appreciate you following me for more. Peace be upon you.
