While Uttarakhand has a lot to offer, booking one of the Mussoorie packages is a great way to see the highlights of the state while taking in the lively, peaceful setting of this hill station known as "The Queen of the Hills."
Mussoorie: An overview The Queen of Hill Stations is located 278 kilometers from Delhi and 34 kilometers north of Dehradun, the state capital of Uttarakhand. It is at the foothills of the Garhwal Himalayas. The snow-covered Himalayan peaks are first visible from Mussoorie, which is located at an elevation of 6561 feet.
Since the 1820s, Mussoorie has served as a retreat for the British Raj. Its neighborhoods are lined with colonial bungalows, many of which have been converted into heritage hotels. The Library Bazaar and the Kulri Bazaar, the hill station's two most popular addresses, are located on the Mall, a 2-kilometer-long pedestrian-only stretch in the heart of Mussoorie.
Hotels, churches, summer palaces, libraries, and other buildings in Mussoorie still feature British architecture. Mussoorie's warm sunshine, colonial feel, open skies, and misty forests are no match for Nainital, Uttarakhand's most popular weekend destination. But when the mist clears, the lush Doon Valley and the farther, snow-capped Himalayan peaks stand out, providing respite in the summer and inviting you to stay warm in the winter as the mountain air circulates around your hotel through the windows and deep verandahs.
All year long, the hill station is crowded with tourists, especially during the summer months of April through June, when backpackers, honeymooners, solo travelers, and families come to enjoy the mountains and jungles.
Make sure your Mussoorie tour package includes all the highlights of this charming hill station from the British era as you plan your vacation. .
