Mussoorie is very rightly named as the Queen of Hills. Placed just 26 km from the valley of Dehradun, this hill station is one of the most beautiful destinations in India. Though Doonites visit Mussoorie very frequently still the beauty and serenity of this place takes the breath away.
Being a Doonite there are numerous stories which are related to Mussoorie but there is one that should stand out and it is certainly the one which i would love to convey to people.
This trip happened in January this year when a normal day of outing turned into a trip to Mussoorie. This is a very normal thing for people in Dehradun when a long drive suddenly turns to be a brief trip to Mussoorie. This was that kind of a trip. The best place where we love to go in Mussoorie is the Char Dukan which is situated at the Landour area. Landour is the highest point in the town. Char Dukan is one of the eating points in the Landour area and you can eat some of the most delicious Chocolate pancakes and Waffles here.
After indulging in our share of Pancakes and Waffles we decided to take a stroll through the hilly streets of Landour. As we finished our snacks the sun had set and the glimmering lights of Dehra were clearly visible. But this evening was even more special because as the sun had set the winter line above Mussoorie appeared in its full glory. This natural phenomenon can only be seen from only two places in the world and one is Mussoorie.
After experiencing this amazing sight we decided to go on the opposite side of the hill where another once in a lifetime sight was awaiting. The darkness had engulfed the hill of Landour but far away ice capped Himalayas were visible and last rays of the sun falling on the snow was radiating a golden light. It was one such moments when we again fell head-over-heels in love with Mussoorie.
There may be many moments which may come and go and many trips which will again happen in the future but the sheer serenity and magic of the nature visible in that evening may never happen again and hence we knew why there can be no other place like Mussoorie.
