My Two Days Trip To Mussoorie, The Queen Of Hills (Best Ever Trip To Any Hill Station)
Mussoorie is a famous destination for a perfect weekend with nature. It is popularly known as “Queen of hills”. This hill station is enriched by beautiful hills, rivers, temples, valleys, and waterfalls. The place is filled with manmade and natural tourist attractions, and thus it attracts Indians and foreigners equally. Since the monsoon is a good time to visit Mussoorie, I and my three friends planned a 2 days trip to Mussoorie on 2nd and 3rd July.
On the first day, we left Karnal (Haryana) at 4:00 a.m in the morning. We traveled by Newal>Yamunanagar>Dehradun route to reach Mussoorie. Karnal to Mussoorie distance is just 240 km. We reached Mussoorie at 12:30 pm in our own car.
We visited Robbers Cave in Dehradun on the way to Mussoorie. Local people call Robbers Cave Guchu Paani. It is a very popular tourist spot. It is situated about 8 km from Dehradun. This 6-meter long cave is divided into two parts. The cave has the highest fall of 10 meters. Since this is natural cave formation rivers flow inside this cave.
