Gun Hill - Review
Falling in the top places to visit at Mussoorie in the row of every Mussoorie tourist guide is the Gun Hill. The most famous attraction in Mussoorie, Gun Hill is the second highest peak of Mussoorie. Gun Hill offers an enchanting view of some of the highest Himalayan ranges namely Bunderpunch, Srikantha, Pithwara and Gangotri group. The point also offers a picturesque view of Mussoorie town and Doon Valley.
A steep winding path or a cable car from the Mall will lead you to Mussoorie’s second highest peak at 2530m – Gun Hill. The hill derives its name from the fact that in the days of the Raj a cannon was fired here to announce mid-day. Said to be an extinct volcano, Gun Hill offers a panoramic view of several surrounding peaks including Banderpoonch and Nag Tibba which result in excellent photographs especially at sunset.

This point mainly accessed by ropeway... Here lot of games for entertainment... Kids will be enjoying lot... Photographers are available for professional photos... They will be charging 50 to 150..... Coffee shops & restaurant r there...
It is a nice place to visit in Mussoorie. There are a couple of food joints where you can eat, drink coffee/tea/juice and relax.. you can also get indulged in some archery or gun shot games. The place has a small temple in the area which can also be explored. All in all a good family hangout place.
The hill top is at a distance of around 2 KM from Mall Road by road, the alternative way to go up and down is use cable car but you may have to wait for 10-15 mins for your ride. There are games like shooting, ball throw etc you can enjoy up there apart from nice view of the mountains around. You can pay 50 Rs for looking around, one thing they show is time of a clock tower in a nearby mountain.
It could have been wonderful had it not been surrounded by shops. Scenic view is hampered by constructions of shops on hill top edges
