Mussoorie, a picturesque hill station in the Northern part of India, was discovered in the 18th century by Captain Young. The British officials added to the popularity of this hill station, as they mostly visited it as a getaway from the heat during summer.

Mussoorie is located at an altitude of 2000 meters above sea level, on a horseshoe shaped ridge. This altitude gives the destination cool and pleasant climate conditions.

Mussoorie is a lovely hill resort in the state of Uttaranchal. It is like a picture right out of your dreams! A paradise spread over a vast carpet of greenery coupled with a rich variety of flora and fauna, breathtaking views of the snow capped mountains and a town buzzing with activity marks a perfect destination for a memorable holiday. The rays of the sun reflecting on the snowcapped peaks, the valleys adorned with colorful flowers, and the gushing streams are a treat to sore eyes. No prizes for guessing that this hill station is known as the Queen of Hill Stations!

Mussoorie opens the path to Gangotri and Yamunotri, two sacred destinations known to be the origin of rivers Ganga and Yamuna respectively, flowing through the mountains into the plains.

A one-stop destination for the old and the young alike, Mussoorie unfolds a variety of activities for all tourists, be it trekking, mountain climbing, long walks down the nature’s path, exploring glimpses of British occupancy in the town, or shopping to your heart’s content. Definitely, Mussoorie is the best place to relax and rejuvenate in the lap of nature. When holidaying in Mussoorie also include Nainital packages.
