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.

  • Visited long back.. It was fun back then more scenery and open space was there but now its all commercialized ... Shops has surrounded the area and nothing else is there.. Scenery has been blocked
  • Thin Air, winds blowing at tremendous speeds.. Some fast food shops & several gaming options. All this among peace & tranquility of the beautiful hills of Mussoorie. Why would anybody not fall in love with it?
  • the view from up top was amazing. but not much crowd. ropeway was a good experience. plus there is a small temple. one should definitely go and spend some time their
  • This place offers an iconic landscape view of the queen of hills and areas nearby. Peaks of the great Himalayan range could also be seen in a clear sky. The only disappoint was the condition of rope way trolleys. Overall a very good place.
  • Cable car is old. View is great from the top. Loads of eating places once you reach the hill. It has a Shani temple on the top
