What comes to your mind when you think of Mussoorie? The surreal weather that just feeds your heart and soul, the panoramic views with every twist and turns, some good old convent schools and home to writer’s paradise. Mussoorie is popularly been called the Queen of the hills. The scenic drives with cloudes all over makes you wonder if you are in a fairyland! The weather does some kind of magic here and entralls you.
In my case, I just love the Mussoorie vibes, the picturesque views, hill side dhabas serving Maggi and chai, the never ending Mall Road, hotels at every nook and corner, the famous Kempty fall and the list is endless…Mussoorie is definitely an overcrowded, commercial, busy yet beautiful hill station that has its charm.
Few things to keep in mind while traveling to Mussoorie are:
- Consider the location of hotel if going by your own vehicle. Hotels located on Mall Road have very small parking generally and there are chances that you get stuck in traffic during peak seasons.
- Consider staying near Library Chowk. It is ideally the most convenient location as all important places such as the Mall Road, Bus stand, entry and exit from Mussoorie is easy.
- While booking online, look for parking in hotels. Hotels without parking are slightly cheap as compared to the ones with parking. So, if you are not travelling by your own, why pay extra?
- If travelling in monsoon season, Umbrella is must. The Mall Road is never ending so its better to have umbreallas on when its pelting with rain.
- Bargain at all shops selling wooden items, woolens and all things fashionable. Tibetan market also has a lot of scope for bargain.
- Both Mussoorie and Landour are famous for their peanut butter, jams, honey, home made cheese and preserves. Don’t forget to devour these when you here.
