Gun Hill, Mussoorie

2.5
#1 of 9 in Historic Sites in Mussoorie
Particularly popular with photographers, Gun Hill offers panoramic views of the surrounding area, including several ranges of the Himalayas. Take the 20-minute walk from the town center or opt to ride the cable car, whose short route yields a different perspective on the hill station and mountainous landscape. The hill received its name during the colonial era, when a gun mounted at the top of its water reservoir was fired at midday each day, so that residents could adjust their watches.

  • Gun Hill is located above the Mall Road. You can walk up there or take the ropeway. However, it is not worth the visit. At the top there are shops and more shops. The views are spoiled by all the shop...  more »

  • Gun Hill is the second highest point of Mussoorie, located at an altitude of 2024m. It is accessible by a cable car, and it offers an enthralling view that one shouldn’t miss! The 400m ropeway ride is fun and all through the travel, you will get to enjoy a panoramic view of this scenic hill station. A land of nature’s treasure, indeed! But if you have time I suggest to enjoy tracking experience of this place which is 500 meters (merely 20 minutes).
  • This place defines Mussoorie as queen of hills. Awesome view in all direction either it's east-west-north-south. Place contains several stages or can say view points showing and portraying whole valley. You can have a very good refreshment for your appetite too. Place is must visit fir kids and children as this place have a bunch of gaming and playing stuffs. Surely a must visit for every age group or family person or a photography lovers.
  • Nothing special to see up here. You will have to visit this place only for the cable car ride. One keychain shop is there which has something decent. All other shops are trash.
  • The place is quiet and serene. You can get a good view of the Camel back peak from this viewpoint. The many games centres offer exciting games that are fun to play. The ropeway ride to this point, though a short one, offers great panoramic views of Mussoorie .
  • If visiting Mussoorie then it's a must visit place ...enjoying Maggi and a hot tea with enjoying scenic beauty of snow capped mountains is pure bliss in food points of gun hill.....only bad thing that for visiting the place you have to take a rope way and they charge around 100 from you..and if you will take the pedestrian route it has very steep slope.. otherwise no issue
