Budget backpacking in Mussoorie

Once in a lifetime who doesn’t think of backpacking and traveling the wholeworld, it’s now the culture, it’s a trend among millennials, Afterall wanderlust is the real lust.


Getting there-

The cheapest and easiest way to reach Mussoorie is to board on a train for Dehradun, which is just 35km away. After reaching Dehradun, you can take a taxi or bus for Mussoorie.



Before you get harassed by travel agents and brokers on mall road (or any road, basically), it’s advised to make your arrangements in advance, I know a good company UK07hotels having a range of hotels from budget to luxury, but for the best value for money, I advise hotel 7oaks hotel. It’s the coolest!



Place to Visit-

You can start from one corner and visit places to the other end, for instance, you can start from Landour and end your trip at the cloud’s end.

Lal Tibba- Away from the tourists and crowd of Mussoorie, Lal Tibba lies in relative silence and piece on top of the highest hill here. On a bright day, you can see the far away snow-clad Tibetan borders from here.

Mall road-The Mall Road is the long road between the library and the picture palace. All the shops and fine restaurants are along the side of roads to facilitate the shoplifters to shop and walk around. ATMs are not nearby from the place so please carry the cash with you.

Gun hill- Gun Hill is one of the most famous tourist attractions of Mussoorie, being the second-highest in the region obviously after Lal Tibba. There is an interesting history that makes itpopular is thatit is said that from this hill,British used to fire a cannon every afternoon to let the natives know the time.


Waterfall-Mussoorie offers many waterfalls likeKempty Falls,Jharipani Fall,Mossy Fall and also a lake Mussoorie Lake, if you have time you can visit them but usually, they are very crowded.


George Everest House-Grand mansion & laboratory of Sir George Everest, with whitewashed walls & sweeping valley views. The view from here is breath taking, the best time to visit is sunrise or sunset.
