"MOUNTAINS" My Obsession.

Since childhood, I've been dreaming about having my own wood house in the hills.
Being a sister of an elder boarding brother, my parents and I used to visit Dehradun (Uttarakhand) every 15 days to meet the apple of our eyes.
I was 8-9 years old when my darling brother started with his high school miles away from me at Scholar's Home.
I couldn't resist meeting him and being a stubborn kid my parents had to take me to him. Innocent parents weren't aware about the fact that I was more interested to visit my 'True' love - Mountains   :D
That was the time when I started having a strong desire to be in the hills.
The smell, the feel of being in hills is simply amazing. Words are less to describe that feeling! 
I personally feel safer in Hills than in my hometown.
Mountains make me feel as if I'm home :)

"Mussoorie" a small hill station located in Uttarakhand, almost 2000 meters above sea level, is indeed a beautiful place.
To be honest, I've visited this hill station for about 20-30 times since I was a small kid.
It is the most familiar and nearest hill station with smooth roads and comfortable driving.

I visited Mussoorie twice in less than a year. Both the times I went with my friends. (September'14 and June'15)
During my first trip in September, I stayed at my friend's house at Landour. And during my second trip, I stayed at Hotel Himalayan Club, one of the finest hotels in Mussoorie, few metres from Picture Palace. 

Cycling in the hills was an epic experience.
Feeling the cold air hitting my face, surrounded by mountains.
I'd never experienced this before. It was indeed an unforgettable experience.
If you're planning your first ever trip with your friends or if it is a bag-pack trip then Mussoorie is a good choice because it's the nearest and the safest!

'Must' visit places in Mussoorie- 
  • Gunhill
  • Landour
  • Chaar Dukaan
  • Camel's Back Road
  • Chick Chocolate
  • Lal Tibba
I can go for like a thousand times to this place and never get bored.

PS- Both the times, I had kickass fun! :D
