    Default Mussoorie or Nainital

    I want to go on holiday someone where nice and calm and a hill station, the two places which I have never been to are Mussoorie and Nainital. Although Mussoorie is much closer to where I live, but I have also heard a lot about Nainital!

    I am kind of stuck on which one to choose so please guide me to where I should go, I am planning my trip on Sunday evening, so let me know before then!

    Either are fine but you should try to go off season to enjoy peace and quiet.

    if someone can read my message to the questionator.(bhoot hoon mai;-)
    visiting Nainital is stupid if you have visited once. Its season always(sorry j4k but i live in this State) Nainital is heaven for the first timers. But a pocket sucker for the twicers of thricers.kausani(not kaushani)is good for just one day. There you should stay for not more than two days in Suman resorts(expensive though but it pays). One who is healthly fit should go to Patal Bhuvneswar district Pithoragarh(around 8hour journey from Nainital). Its a cave discovered by our Mighty ShriSHRI Adi Sankaracharya. It is a cave tunnel. Must to see. RANIKHET too is better than anything else. You should Book at Holmfarm. All hotels etc i describe here are 4k+ for one day.

    One can visit jageshwar. Which is a temple 35kms from Almora. A very old 1100 temple. With the Deodars standing attention all the way to the temple. And you can see Shiv-PARVATI deodars and morpankhi trees which are one at stem but twins in upper part. Contact Pandit Girish Bhatt for a peaceful mind soothing and prosperity bringing Puja.

    One can also see Mayawati Ashram (its not at all related to our own Sushri Bhehenji:lol its one of the chief branches of Ram-KRISHNA mission of Calcutta. Its in pithogarh. Great valley and great flowerland to view.
    I forgot to mention somethin. Pls visit Kausani and there is Gandhi Ashram above the main road. Its a good place for Gandhi lovers and all patriots. And a place for great Himalayan view. Father of the Nation was jailed there for about 4months. I think he like this jail:lol:

    Both the hill stations are very different from each other in many ways. Choosing between Nainital and Mussoorie is not that difficult if you know what both the places are like so I am going to write a few lines describing both.

    Mussoorie is generally colder as compared to Nainital so if you are planning to go in peak summer season then expect warm weather at Nainital and Mussoorie would still be very cold at night and you would need a blanket at night where as Nainital you might even be using a fan depending upon what time of the year it is. Nainital hotels are a bit reasonably priced for similar room quality as compared to Mussoorie.

    Mussoorie also gets extremely costly (Hotels rooms) in peak season due to proximity with Delhi and that is where most of the tourists come from where as Nainital also gets a considerable number of visitors from Kolkata.

    Mussoorie is more or less the only place around there with everything else like Rishikesh, Dehradun and Haridwar all being hot in summers, Nainital on the other hand is very close to Mukteshwar and a lot of other higher altitude destinations which keeps the tourist inflow divided to keep room rents low.

    I have heard about both of these places, however, I have visited none. Interestingly I had a chance to visit both of these places but could not visit because of some problems. If I am to travel to these hill stations, I will choose naintaal first
