Gun Hill, Mussoorie

(2.5/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • Took the rope way on a cold rainy afternoon. Rs 129 per head for a 2 mins ride looked a little steep. Sunny afternoon rides would probably be worth it.  more »

  • 500 mtr steep climb or you can go by the rope way. A nice view of surrounding hills. Fooding places with a nice hill view.
  • Perfrect during sep-aug. For more adventure loving people, go on foot. its a quite a scenic journey
  • Exact location is this.. Many types of Magic and Games shops available here.. By Rd around 2-3km if u have guts to climb on straight Rd.. Otherwise you can go from Cable Car.. Fast food shops are also here. Telescope also available here to See a Gud view of Mussorie and Mountains..Best Time to come here in Summer.
  • CABLE CAS EXPERIENCE WAS AWESOME. HOWEVER GUN HILL EXPERIENCE WAS AVERAGE.
  • Ropeway, hill top view, snow, lots of folding, playing and eating options but little que and rush
