Everyone knows how it feels when you are homesick and unexpectedly you are travelling to your favourite hill station ‘Mussoorie’ the next day. This is one of the most beautiful memory that you make unexpectedly. Thought I make my plans on the spot but getting out after 7 months and that too unexpectedly is a different feeling.
This is what happened with me on a trip to Mussoorie. I was the happiest person that time, the feel of mountains, the fresh and cold air, lush green environment, everything was heaven for me.

Next Morning in Mussoorie
We did the party last night and slept around 1 a.m., we made the decision to visit Lal Tibba in the morning but nobody woke up. Mussoorie has one of the most beautiful sunrises and sunset of India and I’m very fond of watching it but I missed it. We all almost woke up at 8 in the morning, we freshen up and were ready for breakfast.
If you want to do the best breakfast then there is a restaurant in Mall Road of Mussoorie with a name of Uphar near Library Chowk. We tried some parathas, Pav Bhaji, doughnuts and kullad Chai. Everything was awesome and you can try anything from this restaurant.
After having breakfast we were back to the hotel and slept again. The whole day went in the hotel. It was 5 in the evening, 3 of us out of 6 people decided to have a walk on Mall Road. We tasted many things that evening. We tried Panipuri, Aalu Tikki, Burger, Momos, bun kulcha, Coffee and roadside Maggi and everything was awesome in taste.
The time was around 6 and whether was in a dramatic mood. The clouds were crossing by the mountains with an incredible sunset view made the day.
We were back to the hotel, had our drinks, enjoyed the time with each other and at around 11 we were again out to hangout in Mussoorie at night. This place looks totally different at night. No crowd, no cars around, few restaurants were open and the whole environment was silent. Surprisingly, the whole area becomes dark due to a power cut.
It was like God did for us to have a beautiful view of sparking Dehradun city. The view was so beautiful that no-one wants that view to ending, the experience was incredible. After watching, we were back to the hotel and decided to wake up early for Lal Tibba.
Last Day at Mussoorie
Though we had a plan to get up at 5 in the morning I woke at 6:30. In our group 3 people are active and other 3 are lazy and don’t want to explore the place. I, my friend’s cousin and his Jijaji went out by 6:30 in the morning for Lal Tibba. It took approx. 1/2 hr to reach the place.
Lal Tibba is nothing but a cafe from where you can have a look of the whole Mussoorie and mighty snow-capped Himalayas on the other side. Unfortunately, the place was closed so we chose to have a walk at the place. The morning experience was mesmerizing. Before going back to Mussoorie, on a route, you will find Char Dukan and Cafe Ivy. The shops were open and we had Maggi and Nutella Pancake. The pancake was divine.
As we have to check out from the hotel, we all were ready to go back to our home but before that, we also had a plan for Kempty Fall. How can we miss the one and only beautiful waterfall of Mussoorie? The whole place was fully packed everyone was bathing, no social distancing, no mask, it seems like a usual day like before the pandemic.
After checking the waterfall, we took a route from Mussoorie because the route was short. Though I was crossing I did the last goodbye to Mussoorie ‘my favourite destination’, thinking about the memories I had with this place and I passed the hill station. The trip was awesome and the most important thing is it’s my first trip after a lockdown in this pandemic. I was very happy and everything went well.
The whole trip cost me ₹5,200 for 2 nights 3 days including hotel, travelling and food.
Stay Safe, JAI HIND🇮🇳
