Gun Hill, Mussoorie

2.5
#1 of 6 in Historic Sites in Mussoorie
Mountain Historic Site
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. Put Gun Hill at the forefront of your travel plans using our Mussoorie tourist route planner.

  • You reach this point by ropeway. So can enjoy the surroundings of hills. When u reach this point, some views are breathtaking. There is a small market also. Overall experience very good. Would have given 5 stars if that was non smoking zone.
  • The view is beautiful. Cable car ride for 100 bucks might be nice for many. Nothing much activity to do up there
  • Nothing special to see here. Have to go by cable car. If you are in extra enjoying mood, you may play some childish games here. Will be ok if you drop unless want to experience cable car of a very short distance.
  • VERY DELIGHTED EXPERIENCE , COOL WEATHER WITH SIPS OF COFFEE ALONG WITH CLOUDS , GIVES YOU A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE , MUST VISIT TO UNLEASH THE STRESS .
  • This hill covered by shops all around. There is only one 10 feet wide view points. Only trum car ride feel good
