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.

It is a beautiful place but vendors have covered all the top area of the hill. You have to hike on high sloped road to get there, and when you reach there you just see vendors all around. If you really want watch nature don't waste your money on Rope-way or Your energy
This is the second highest point being nearly 6100 feet above sea level. Has excellent views and you can reach this place either by walk which provides you with good views of the hill station on the way along with various vegetation on the way and the other way to reach this place is through cable car service which is also exciting. At this point you have facilities to eat and shop for small articles. There are also some small games organised by the locals. Also there are telescopes with guides through which we ca see some important landmarks around this place. A visit to Mussoorie is incomplete without going to this place.
Mandatory to visit if you're visiting Mussorie. Beautiful. But I do not like the fact that the view is not complete because of hindrance from shops and stalls.
Beautiful scene of dehradun city can be seen.. good food ...
Once u get on the top in the cable car you will certainly enjoy the place... The short journey in the cable car is itself so amazing... The aesthetic beauty is so so amazing .. There is the telescopic view point ...Go guys enjoy the view ...Will never regret being there
