Mussoorie Hill Station

Located at an altitude of 2000 m above sea level,mussoorie,is sprawled over a horse - shoe shaped ridge. Easily accessible from Delhi,mussoorie is one of the prime hill resorts of the country. It offers some breathtaking views of the snowclad Himalayan peaks of western Garhwal,as well as of the Dehradun valley below. It was in the 1820s,that the area was 'discovered' by Captain Young. It grew in popularity amongst the British officials,who craved for some respite from the heat and grime of the plains. By the mid - 19th century,mussoorie became a flourishing hill station,with its famous Mall.

The Mall: the nerve - centre of mussoorie,faces Dehradun,and distant snowclad peaks can be spotted from the summit of Gun Hill:,2142 m above sea level. A 400 m ' Ropeway' cable - car ride links Gun Hill with the Mall. Another tourist attraction is the Childers Lodge,the highest vantage point in the vicinity,5 km east of the Mall.
