Vacation Travel Guide
Gun Hill showing tranquil scenes

Walk or ride a cable car to the summit of this hill to take in magnificent views across Mussoorie’s rooftops and distant Himalayan peaks.

Gun Hill is a hilltop and lookout deck that commands unparalleled views over Mussoorie, the Doon Valley and the Garhwal Himalayas. Here, sample traditional Indian snacks, enjoy family-friendly fun at a small fairground and take a souvenir photo while dressed in traditional clothing. Gun Hill sits at a height of 6,640 feet (2,020 meters) and is the second-highest point in Mussoorie.

Reach the viewpoint by riding on the cable car, which travels up for about 1,300 feet (400 meters) from The Mall. Watch as Mussoorie’s rooftops disappear into the distance and marvel as the views of the surrounding countryside become clearer. An alternative way to get here is to walk along a winding trail that leads off from The Mall. The walk takes about 30 minutes.

At the summit of the hill are views of the rolling green hills of the Doon Valley in all directions. On a clear day you can spot the snow-capped peaks of the Garhwal Himalayan range. These include the towering Bandarpunch and Gangotri glacier. Pay a small amount to use binoculars to observe the landscapes in closer detail.

Both local residents and tourists enjoy visiting Gun Hill. Kids will have fun playing on the roundabouts, ring throwing and balloon shooting games, among other attractions. Professional photographers offer visitors the chance to dress in typical Indian clothing and pose for a souvenir photo. Warm up on a chilly day with a cup of masala chai tea from one of several cafés and restaurants. Sample Indian snacks including chana kulcha, which is spicy chickpeas served with flatbread.

The hilltop is above Mussoorie’s town center. Combine your visit with a stroll on The Mall, a lively commercial promenade. Alternatively, hike or ride on horseback along Camel’s Back Road, a scenic trail named after a rocky formation that resembles a camel.

Gun Hill is accessible daily. The cable car runs every day. Purchase a roundtrip ticket for the cable car which is cheaper than purchasing two separate single tickets.
