Things to do in Mussoorie – A destination guide
The mountains are calling and I must go! This quote seems really apt for us as we can be found planning a trip to the mountains almost every month. The last time when we were in Kanatal, we were discussing our next destination and mountains came as the common choice. We planned a trip to Almora, Binsar, Ranikhet and Munsiyari with family, however, we also had a short trip to Dehradun and Mussoorie before that. The last time we shared a destination guide on Dehradun where we talked about things to do in Dehradun. This time we are sharing the things to do in Mussoorie – A destination guide.
Weekend Getaway from Delhi
How to reach Mussoorie
Best time to visit Mussoorie:
Mussoorie is one of those popular hill stations in Uttarakhand which can be visited during any time of the year. However, it is recommended to visit it between March to June as the weather is mostly clear during this time. The only con of choosing this time to visit this place is that it is overcrowded and the prices are high for everything during the peak season.

Long Weekend Getaway from Delhi
There are few places from which can be planned as one-day excursions from Mussoorie. These include places like Dehradun, Dhanaulti, Kanatal and Landor. While each of these places is beautiful in its own respect, its close proximity, within 300kms from Delhi, adds to the charm of your trip. These can be clubbed as a long weekend getaway from Delhi.
Places to eat in Mussoorie:
The increase in the number of tourists visiting Mussoorie has boomed the number of eateries in the city. It has a variety of food to offer right from Indian, Continental, Italian, Chinese and desserts too. We went on a food exploration and tried our hands at a few of the specialties.
Located on the Mall Road this is a heaven for dessert lovers especially. One of the most happening cafes, the interiors of this place makes you fall for it. The cafe is built with vibrant colors and serves as one of the best hot chocolate fudge in town. Our experience with the Chick-Chocolate Cafe was pleasing as we tried few of their preparations including a cappuccino which was awesome.
There are many other Maggi and tea/ coffee vendors on the mall road to help you with a quick snack.
