Delhi to Mussoorie Weekend Holiday Packages
Mussoorie holiday packages from Delhi for your weekend trip
What to See
Kempty Falls : A must see spot, Kempty Falls 15 km away is just an hour's drive away on the Mussoorie-Yamunotri route. It was once a picturesque spot, but now is ridden with evidence of tourist visits - plastic bags, empty bottles and other litters. It is particularly busy in May and June and we recommend you find a quiet spot on the Yamuna riverbank.
The Mall : Mussoorie's lifeblood, the Mall stretches from Cloud's End in the west to Rockville (the "Haunted House") in the east. Officially though, the Mall starts at Gandhi Chowk and ends at the Clock Tower, where Landour Bazaar begins. Close to Library Bazaar is the Happy Valleywhich is home to the municipal gardens, the Tibetan School and Home and the National Academy of Administration. Also you'll find here the road leading to Barlowganj, which has old and famous schools such as St George's and Oakgrove.
Gun Hill : Accessible from the Mall by ropeway, Gun Hill derives its name from the guns that were kept atop the hill earlier and fired at mid-day to indicate the time. Gun Hill also provides scenic views of the Himalayan peaks and a bird's eye view of Mussoorie.
Camel's Back Cemetery : It is the final resting place of most of the early settlers of the hills. Australian novelist John Lang, who worked as Charles Dickens' correspondent, Fredrick Wilson known for his marriage to a Harsil girl and Alfred Hindmarsh are some of the prominent people who are buried here.
Lal Tibba : Literally meaning "top of the hill", this is the highest point in Mussoorie. It offers marvelous views of the Himalayan ranges. The peaks of Badrinath, Kedarnath, Bandar Poonch, Sri Kantha and Nanda Devi can be seen from here on clear days.
