    Camel's Back Road connects the two ends of the Mall Road providing a longer, very quiet, winding and, most importantly, a level route compared to the steep inclines of the Mall Road. Provides for a nice, leisurely 30-40 minute walk with good views of the mountains and valleys.

    This place is beautiful but very under developed. No place to stand & very badly maintained. Just the gandola ride is fun. but once u reach there, trust me 10 min & u can stand further. Overall can be missed

    We spent good 2 hours here. What a place! The Gufa is strictly for people who want to meditate, not for photography. For people who meditate, it's heaven and you'll realise it in Arundhati cave as well as Vashishta Gufa.

    We went last week when there was hardly any flow in the river. But I think it will be a great place to visit in the monsoon when there will be enough water in the river and forest around will be fresh and greener.

    A bit expensive trip in my view, the charges are Rs 180 per head (for every one above 3 Yrs).
    Takes about 3-4 minutes to ascend and descend from Gun Hill.
    The View is nice, you have restaurant , some games shops up there.
    Should visit in case its your first trip to Mussorrie.

    How to Reach: Dehradun/Haridwar/Rishikesh to Govindghat via Joshimath, by
    road. The distance is around 300 km and takes around 10-12 hours
    depending on road and traffic conditions. One can take night halt at
    Joshimath or Govindghat. From Govindghat to Pulna village is nearly 5
    km and shared sumo is available which costs Rs. 200 per head or
    Rs.500/600 for full vehicle. From Pulna village it is around 10 km on foot
    or one can take horse ride which costs between Rs. 1500 to Rs. 1800
    per person or one can go by pitthu (man carrying you on back).
    Depending on the mode of Travel it takes 2 hours to six hours. The last
    4 and half kilometer is too steep. So one need to be mentally prepared
    for the same and the road is paved with stone which tends to slip
    during rain. Then you reach Ghangria. Night halt at Ghangria. From
    Ghangria one can leave in the morning for Valley of flowers ( Phoolon
    Ki Ghati). The gate opens at 7 in the morning and the entry fee is Rs.
    150 per head. This entry pass is valid for three days. Thus one can
    enter the park three consecutive days by buying one pass of Rs.150.
    From the gate the valley is 3 km trek and once again it is a steep trek.

    Altitude : Govindghat is at 6000 feet, Ghangria is at 10000 feet and valley of
    flowers is at around 12000 feet and Hemkund Shahib is at 15000 feet.
    Valley of flowers is over two and half kilometer spread.

    Time to Visit: The best time to visit valley of flowers is in the month of July. Though it
    will be raining but one can get to see the valley at its best. From mid
    August the flowers will start dropping and by September middle, it will
    be all over.

    What to carry: As the time to visit is peak monsoon, so one must have a good rain
    coat, a good trekking shoe, cap rather a hat will be better, sunscreen
    lotion is must otherwise skin will burn due to strong UV rays. One should
    preferably carry mosquito/insect repellent cream as all hotels are
    infested with insects. Ghangria is normally warm during day time but
    after evening the temperature starts falling rapidly. So one should
    carry warm cloths accordingly. Day temperature hovers around 12-
    18/19 but the night temperature goes down to even 5/6 degree
    centigrade.

    Mobile Connection: Only Jio has a mobile tower, rest no other service provider has
    any tower. Hence except Jio and on rare occasion one can get Airtel
    connectivity. Rest no other mobile network is available there. Secondly,
    only two/three hotels provide Wi-Fi connection, rest majority of the
    hotels do not provide Wi-Fi facility.

    Guide: Valley of flowers has over 520 types of plants and of those nearly 500
    are flowering plants. So it is always advisable to have a proper good
    guide who knows the flowers and its characteristics. Though there are
    many but hardly few who are from Ghangria. I was lucky to come
    across two such local guides who are exceptionally good in their
    knowledge and equally good companion. One is Eshwar
    (+91 9458927294) and the other one is Rupesh (+91 7579000228).

    The Valley: If one wants to see maximum no of flowers then one day is not
    enough. In any way the entry-pass allows one to enter three
    consecutive days inside the valley. Though it may be physically
    strenuous to trek three days continuously but it can be cherishing
    experience if one can do. I could do two days. Secondly, the more one
    goes higher altitude from valley one can see more rare flowers. The
    higher the altitude the more beautiful and rare flowers. Like
    Bramhakamal and Blue Poppy can be seen more, near Hemkund
    Shahib. Kunth Khal which is in the range of 3700 – 4500 mtr, has to be
    trekked further from Valley of Flowers. The flowers which can be seen
    in Kunth Khal are not available in the valley nor around Hemkund
    Shahib. So if anyone really wants to enjoy and feel the beauty of this
    heaven in earth then one must go between mid July to first week of
    August and spend 7/8 days based at Ghangria and trek different
    routes to explore the entire valley in totality. But I must say, every
    nature lover must go once in his life to see this beautiful gift of mother
    nature to India. Please don’t miss it.

    I visited Bhatta falls around 5-6 years back and had memories of it from then. But to my amaze things for drastically changed in last couple of years. You can reach there either via ropeway or via your won vehicle but be careful the road is very narrow, steep and have 3-4 hair pin turns. I would suggest the ropeway as it covers entry fees of 50 bucks as well so it would be a reasonable deal. They have made an amusement park sort of thing at Bhatta falls. They have some adventure activities like swings, zip lings and few others. For small kids they have battery operated cars and bikes. To relax they have made small gardens to relax and a restaurant to fill your tummy. However the food quality/taste and the cost are not in sync. I would prefer to void the restaurant. Thye have made a small artificial lake as well with few boats in it. Overall a good place to spend few hours. The good part is that you dont have to plan it during the stay at Mussoorie but you can visit it on your way back from there.

    Jharipani Fall:The cascading Jharipani Falls is located on Mussoorie-Jharipani road about 9 km from Mussoorie. From here one needs to cover a favourable distance of 1.5 km either by bus, car or on foot to reach the waterfall. The enchanting Jharipani Falls offers a picturesque view of the Shivalik Range.Need to Walk 2km To reach fall.Advisable to visit from 7: AM to 6 PM
