Travel and Places
Mussoorie, the proverbial Queen of Hill stations, as professed by the British gentry who evaded hot, desultory summers of Delhi and Kolkata by spending time here.Being at an average altitude of 2,000 metres (6,600 ft), Mussoorie, with its green hills and varied flora and fauna, is a fascinating hill resort. Commanding snow ranges to the north-east, and glittering views of the Doon Valley and Shiwalik ranges in the south, the town was once said to present a ‘fairyland’ atmosphere to tourists. The highest point is Lal Tibba with a height of over 2,290 metres (7,500 ft).

A must visit place in Mussoorie. The zig-zag drive through mountains is amazing. A sign on the road mentioned we were 6000 mts above sea level and we were still climbing. There is a short cable car ride that takes you to foot of the waterfalls.
There is something for everyone to do. Taking bath in icy cold water, boating, shopping and the roasted corn (bhutta) is yummy.
