Local Attractions

Mall Road
Mussoorie’s Mall Road offers all that is expected from a typical Indian hill station. Restaurants and cafes coexist alongside videogame parlours and souvenir vendors. There are two opposite ends of the Mall Road, referred to as Library and Picture Palace sides by locals.

Lal Tibba
This is as high as it gets in Mussoorie! Lal Tibba is the highest point perched at 2,346 metres above sea level, and a must-visit attraction. Surrounded by dense clusters of pine and deodar trees, Lal Tibba gives you a chance to behold some of the most picturesque views of the Himalayan Garhwal mountain range called Bandarpunch or Hanuman’s Tail.

Kempty Falls
Located about 15 kilometres from the centre of Mussoorie, it is Mussoorie’s most popular tourist attraction. The cascading perennial waterfalls gush down from a height of about 12 metres. The best part about visiting the Kempty Falls is the fact that you can take a long cool bath under the falls!

Happy Valley
Located about 2 kilometres from Library Bazaar, it is a large Tibetan settlement and a beautiful trail, which leads to Cloud’s End, a scenic spot located at the far end of the town.

Lake Mist
The pristine Lake Mist is among the most beautiful attractions of Mussoorie – the Queen of Hills. Embraced by forest-covered terrains from all sides, this picturesque water body is an ideal place for spending moments of repose with friends and family.

Gun Hill
The spectacular Gun Hill is among the most famous tourist attractions of Mussoorie. It is the second highest peak in the region after Lal Tibba. Perched 400 ft above the Mall, this enthralling place of tourist interest can be reached through a cable car ropeway.

Christ Church
The exquisite Christ Church is believed to be the oldest church in the entire Himalayan region. Built in 1836 by the British, this church boasts of brilliant Gothic style architecture. The beautiful pre-Raphaelite stained glass windows, representing the life events of Jesus Christ, fascinate every onlooker.
