A Short Trip to Mussoorie: Dehradun and Haridwar
Hello guys it’s time to travel “Mussoorie -The Queen of Hills”
. It is situated in the foothills of the Garhwal Himalayan. The distance from New Delhi to Mussoorie is approx 300km.
My Trip started from the Faridabad city with friends
The year 2016 I travelled Mussoorie
with my friends it was just 3 days trip. The travel clock had completed full circle considering the reality that I had visited Mussoorie
already with family and yet choosing the same destination with friends but the difference is that I planed 2 more places to visit i.e. Dehradun and Haridwar
I travelled by private travel bus
. The Bus was ready to depart Mussoorie
. I sit in the bus and the bus departs at 11PM. It is a tourist bus. Now we were on the way to Mussoorie
and enjoyed the journey as better as possible. In the bus we started a game of Antakshari
and we divided peoples in the two teams one is Team A
and another is Team B
. After the game Team B
won and I was in Team A
. it was bad luck of me but game is game, someone will win or someone will lose.
Reached at Dehradun
At 4 AM we reached at a Restaurant to drink tea and had some snacks that is in somewhere on the way of Mussoorie
. There weather was cool and we stayed there around 30 minutes. Before we reached Mussoorie
we went Dehradun
(Doon) for few times. In the way of Dehradun
the Hills were began to seen. Here we took a bath in “Sahastdhara
” the water was so child and after bath we sit on nearby Dhaba (Hotel) to eat Breakfast and then ready to go to Mussoorie
. It was 9:30AM around. Here you can see the monkeys that outing here and there.
Travelling around the hills between Dehradun to Mussoorie
After the lunch we go back to the bus and take own seat. The weather was cool and romantic. In the Between Dehradun
the roads are very narrow and turning point very near and sharp. The view from the bus looking delightful and felt like that I am very lucky to see this natural beauty of Hills. After that finally we reached Mussoorie
- the Queen of Hills
At Mussoorie Hotel and planning for outing, Ghandhi gate
