Dear Friends Hi:
I would be in Roorkee for few day i.e 21 to 26 Dec., 2008. After that I would like to visite some nearby places apart from Massoorie and other Teerth-Sthans (Religious Places) for four to five days. I would be there with my family (i.e. My wife and my son, ofcourse with the Driver) in my Santro car. We would really love to see the snow fall and to be surrounded by the snow but taking safty as the prime aspect.
Now, I request you kindly suggest me accordingly.

Note: Please let me know to what extend one can move from Mussoorie towards Har-Ki-Dun by a car with the family at the end of Dec., 2008.
Thanks
MAS

From Mussoorie, you can visit nearby places like Kempty Falls and Dhanolti.
If you don't mind walking 1.3 km uphill, you can go to Kaddukhal, which is close to Dhanolti, and walk up the hill to Surkanda Devi. From there you can get an excellent 360-degree view on a clear day.

There is no guarantee of snowfall in December. If you are lucky you will get it otherwise just look at the snow peaks. You could drive from Mussoorie to kaddukhal and visit Surkanda as Dilliwala suggested and then drive on to chamba and New Tehri for a look at the latest tourist attraction added to the area namely the great Tehri lake. Then back to Rishikesh and Haridwar.

With a small car, you cannot go past Sankri in general.
As it happens the road is broken a few kms before Sankri as reported in other threads, so you wud even have to walk now just to get to GMVN.
They have no electricity, only diesel genny for 2 hours every evening.

You cud stay at GMVN Hanol though.
