Gun Hill, Mussoorie

(750+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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.
  • This hill covered by shops all around. There is only one 10 feet wide view points. Only trum car ride feel good
  • Its is a good point to have telescopic view, you can play lot of small games get pictutes and do try the kachalu here, but its nice and fun and view is awesome
  • The view from the top is mesmerising but don't fall in trap of those games having prizes. Play for fun but don't play for prizes. Or else you are likely to lose a good amount of money from your pocket.
  • Good view. Small viewing area. Covered with shops all over. Activities and games are expensive. Long queue for rope ways.
