    Default Mussoorie holiday- places to visit

    Mussoorie is a beautiful place and it has large number of places which should be visited by everyone. Here is a look at some of them.

    There is a beautiful nature walk also known as the "Camel's Back Road". This road is named after the mountain that has a shape of a camel's hump. Along the camelís back road is a beautiful cemetery which is located about mid-way on the mountainís loop.

    There is also the popular "Gun Hill" where the rulers used to keep their cannons to defend the hills of Mussoorie. You can only visit the Gun Hill through a cable car which you have to take from a Mall road.

    You can also visit St. Maryís , the oldest Christian church in the Himalayas. The church is situated right above Mall Road. The church is currently being restored. You can also pay a visit to the Kempty falls, which is a really nice picnic spot.

    Another popular destination you can visit is the Company Garden. During peak season, the Garden has a beautiful collection of plants and flowers and plants. There is a wonderful Tibetan temple in the Happy Valley, which is small yet beautiful. It was the absolute first Tibetan temple built in India. The temple was built in 1960 by the refugees who came from Tibet

    Another tourist spot you can visit is the Lal Tibba. Also visit the beautiful Dhanaulti located about 24 kilometers from Mussorie. You can also visit the country's largest roller skating rink located in Mussouri.

    Also visit the Lake Mist, located at about 5 km before Kempty falls on the Mussoorie-Kempty road. It is a recently developed good picnic spot with proper accommodation and restaurant facilities. You can also go boating in there.

    I been to mussoorie number of times and honestly i love the place
    there are so many things to do and enjoy in and around mussoorie, like walk from camel top to mall road.
    campty fall
    maggie on the way to campty
    ghanauty (a place to sit peacefully and enjoy the view with the great smell of nautre)
    ropeway (looks good in foggy days when it looks like you are coming out of one cloud and going in other one)
    tope tibba (i love to be here in foggy mornings when you can feel the cold wind and get a great feel to smoke)
    if you get bored of all these things then can go to any cool pub for a mug of beer with desi namkeen

    yes thats what i always say that we already got so many places to see in India. Don't know why everyone keeps running out. May be due to attractive offers and all, i just checked a holiday package to KL for 26000 only

    for round trip to assam need to pay around 18000 may be thats the reason people are going out
