Gun Hill, Mussoorie

2.5
#1 of 6 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.

  • 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.
  • Nice place to see snow covered mountains and enjoy yourself out with lot of games... Much recommended... Either one can take a trolley or a steep trek route... Both are fun :)
  • Not so good place... Just a view is amazing and travelling there is fun and inexpensive... Nothing much to do on the top except great photos to click...
  • One of highest points in Mussoorie. Great visuals. Although there are other places where the scenes are even better.
  • Must do best when in Dehradun. Gives a 360 degree view. Can see Himalayaa on clear day
