Has any of you been to Mussoorie ?
It is one of the best places on the hills, I guess that's why it's called the queen of the Hills
Though there is not much to see, that may be considered cultural or otherwise.
But still it is a great place !

i don't think any of you foreign tourists would want to go to a place that is overcrowded, messy and turns as bad as any lousy indian town in tourist peak-season.

And the worst part with Mussorie is there is NO off-season.
If you are not on the edge, you are taking too much space

Places in an around Mussorie are JhadiPani, Kempty falls and Dhanaulti. Actually the trek from DehraDun to Mussorie is pretty good. Although I am not sure as how safe is it for foreigners. Season or no season incase you can convince the PWD guest house person in Mussorie then you just might get a great room for cheap value and that too in the heart of Mussorie. If you come to Dehradun, then there is this cave I am not sure incase it is Rovers cave or Robbers cave , but it's a great place to be. Could pay a visit to my alma marter , Rashtriya Indian Military College. It is a residential school.

Mussoorie was pretty quiet when we were there in February this year. Weekends are a bit more busy though when people drive up from the plains. I would imagine that during holiday periods and the hot season it gets very crowded.

There are some good walks in the area and some of the best gulab jamuns and samosas I've had in India!

Mussoorie is one of my favortite places in India.

I spent time at the Landour Language School (up the hills from the main town) and, though there were tourists, it was quiet and they were wonderful to get to know.

I stayed in a guest house - and I just cant remember the name - with a fabulous view very near the Language School. There were some of the most fantastic walks imaginable. I got to know the Alters (the parents of author Stephen Alter). For me, it was a quiet refuge, and I have only fond memories.
