Gun Hill, Mussoorie Reviews
Mussorie is queen of hills. You have lots of scenic points in and around. But Gun hill provides a different view. It's different. No chaos, absolutely calm. During sunrise and sunset, it is beautiful. You are at one of the most highest point and you let the sun rise over the horizon. You appreciate the slow moving sunlight, gradually whipping the darkness.
Good scenic 👉 point, especially if u visit in the evening 🌃. It's above the hill as the name tell itself.. I named it gamble hill because all the gamble game you can play there, win or loose depends on your skills and luck. On the other side you can eat and drink nice snacks whatever of your choice, chaats too. Temple, eat, roam, games, view points all are there,. Most importantly it's fun when moving uphill.
A nice place for a short time span. One can enjoy the beautiful view from there. A fun loving place specially for kids and for a great view for adults too.
It is a very amazing and calm place. You will see some mindblowing views of the Himalayas. Get upto there using trolley or by foot, you will end up enjoying there only if you want to see attractive views of Himalayas.
Not a good place to visit.. If you wanna see the real beauty of mussoorie then visit camels back road and laal tibba..Also you can visit mossy falls near jharipani... The real natural beauty lies there... 2 star is only for the cool breeze...
