    4 more images

    This Mid Himalayan Range is clearly visible from almost many part of the Towm, even from our Hotel Vishnu Palace. These peaks are also known as Badrinath/ Kedarnath range where four greatest of Hindu Shrines are located. The Shrines are known as Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri( from where The Ganges emerges), and Yamunotri( from where river Yamuna emerges). Thousand of people all over the world visit these places every year. I have visited these mountains in 1982 but I do dream to take Rakhi & Munu along with me someday in near future.

    Now one can go by road upto Badrinath and then 14KM trek to Kedarnath & Gangotri.

    Just drive at leisure. There is too much of scenic beauty to appreciate
    . Mussoorie offers an average night life till 9. After that, it's better to remain inside as the wind gets chilly. Though one is never going to miss the city life you ask for it you have it. It is far more developed. So no probs in getting anything. Carry lots of woolens though. The weather is quite unpredictable. It might rain all of a sudden and the wind becomes very chilly then.
    Nice roadside restaurants are quite affordable.
    If you are a literary buff don't forget to meet Mr Ruskin Bond and evening tea at Gun hill point is a must.

  • Cable Car for Himalayan Views

    Boarding the Cable Car at the Mall

    From about half way along the Mall there is a cable car which takes you up to the top of the ridgeline where you can get views over to the mighty Himalayas. The owners run the cable car when it is packed to the brim (we had 14 people in ours). The views on the way up are pretty spectacular too as you can look back over the town of Mussoorie and also down into the valley towards Dehradun, provided it is a clear enough day - otherwise you look down into a murky void but the Himalayan views were stunning even when the views into Dehradun weren't.

    A round-trip costs Rs.50 and you buy the tickets from the window on the Mall.

  • Views from the top of the Ridgeline

    Look at the centre of the picture for the muntains

    At the upper Cable Car station there is a courtyard with small shops all around and some funfair rides in the centre. Move on out past these and down onto the lane bahind and you will get the most stunning views of the Himalayan giants. You can gaze out towards Bandarpunch, the Bhagirathi Peaks and Shivling. We stopped at one of the places along here for a chai and just to sit in the strong mountain sun and take in the views. See my other tip about returning from here - try and sell-off your return cable-car ticket (if you are a backpacker like I was, or just keep it as a souvenir) and go back by the footpath...well worth it.

    (Picture Note: A camera never does the views justice, I was raving to friends and family back home about how stunning the mountains were and then went to show the picture to end up saying "If you squint you can just make them out in the middle there!" again, my pictures don't do them justice...go and see for yourself!)
