Sir George Everest House, Mussoorie Reviews
Trekking to this point is fun. The path is through the jungle that's full of greenery. The point offers a nice view of the hills and the valleys. Though one can go up there in a car, I would recommend trekking. In fact there are two routes to reach this point. The one via Wishing Well is much more serene as most vehicles take the other route. There is a peak that one can climb if one is fit. The climb is very steep but I'm sure if one can climb to the top it would offer an exhilarating view. I only wish that people could keep this place clean and not litter.
Your eyes will absolutely shine by seeing this place, the view is so perferct for hill lover and even a small trek can be done. Take the long route via the cloud end, its more beautiful but you'll have to walk a little more via this route. For trek lovers its a must watch.
Built around 1830s. Nice views around this place. You can't believe that Mr. George Everest had built his house there. Its truely amazing and blissful when visit the that height by walking. There is another peak next to this, where people are trying to go there, even some were on the top of it. I had nice time there. Nice place to go with family friends and have good time. Few shops are there around this place, where you can get water tea and eatables.
Beautiful place. Awesome view. The day I visited it was drizzling and it was an awesome experience. There is a trekking of approx 2km to reach the spot. Taking small cars to the valley is bit risky. It's a must visit place.
Located on the way to Mussoorie, George Everest Peak is a brilliant getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. A small walk from the main road takes you through a dense forest path into and open almost unknown place at the top of the hill. Atop this place sits the now desecrated house of Sir George Everest. The place itself is a beautiful sight. Climb up to the top to watch the sun rise and sun set. Camp out in the night , light a bonfire, everything is almost perfect. Except the fact that the whole point of the house is lost. The home itself is in ruins, no authority has taken charge of maintaining the civility and cleanliness of the once surveyor general of India. But thankfully, the dirtiness doesn’t extend into the natural world, the surrounding are surprisingly clean and worth the small trek to this beautiful place.
