MUSSOORIE

After 2 days in Haridwar and Rishikesh, we continue our journey to Mussoorie.

Mussoorie is a hill station, similarly to Ooty or Simla. It’s located at an altitude of 2000 meters above sea level, which has cool and pleasant climate around the year but November to January are of freezing weather and snow. Night temperature can touch to subzero levels and roads get blocked by snow and snowfall is common from December till mid of February. Unfortunately, we went end of April, so we don’t experience any snow.
