  • This is the highest point in Mussoorie. Great views of the mountains from here. More than just spending time here, I would suggest people to walk around the Landour area. Beautiful streets amidst Deod...  read more »

  • Lal Tibba is a place to visit Only On A Clear Day. Do not visit on a cloudy day . The place offers a good view of the peaks and holy places in Uttrakhand. Telescopes are available for use at a nominal...  read more »
  • There are 2 buildings that are at the Lal tibba. The one that says New Lal Tibba has a better view...but pathetic binoculars...the coffee is good but tell him not to make it like jaggery !! Come till char dukan (4shops) take a walk till Lal Tibba, see the sunset, take a panoramic shot from top, walk towards the British cemetery, will wind up to sisters bazaar till you circle back to char dukan. Also if u have a Vespa/bike this circular road is an excellent drive
  • Hike here from Mussoorie. The coffee is bad and overpriced, so you can skip it. The trees obstruct your view of the snowy Himalayas to the north so you may consider climbing one of the 2 buildings (coffee/telescope peddlers). This is not the highest point in Landour, no matter what people tell you. It was the original Lal tibba (red mountain) which was, but that now hosts an AIR tower. Take a leisurely stroll around Landour town and then head back to Mussoorie.
  • Laal Tibba is the best view point it is part of Landour Cantt. Take a taxi from Picture Palace to Char Dukan ₹300/- I paid. Then walk it down to Laal Tibba. The telescope there is useless and the coffee not worth it. But the sights of the Himalayan Peaks is fabulous and memorable must take a panoramic photo with a camera. Continue walking cross the old British Graveyard reach the language school do read the history of Landour Cantt . Walk ahead to Sister Bazaar, nothing much to by there. Back to Chat Dukan have a sumptuous breakfasts of bun omelets, waffles various flavours of tea and other beverages. Take the shot cut and walk down to Mall Road 20-30 minutes leisure walk, no point in taking taxi downhill. Clear winter morning is the best time.
  • Highest and most beautiful point but i had to walk 6 km. From camel back road.
  • Lal Tibba is the highest point at Mussoorie (apparently!). The views from there are pretty spectacular, but if you're walking up the stretch, you will gradually get taken in by the view - and the end point is nothing exponentially fantastic. There is a 'tourist point' which is a three-storey coffee shop. 20 Rs entry fee there. It's got a telescope at the top level (which is nice, a guy shows you 3-4 points with a pretty powerful Japanese telescope). The coffee is meh (definitely not worth the 50 buck asking price) and sadly, there are pushy photographers. The place would be a lot better if it just had an unmanned booth from which people could enjoy the view. That being said, the trek (or drive) up is definitely worth it.
