Mussoorie is called the “Queen of the hills”. A famous tourist destination it retains the traces of the British era to a large extent. Also houses the best boarding schools in the country.
When we started from YHAI hostel, we had still 5 more kilometers to go. We found a bus to go up to the city. Drivers driving on the hills have little fear of heights. Turning and twisting the vehicles at more than the permissible limit, they can make you sick. The bus veers dangerously close to the edge and vehicles pass each other like they are traveling in a 6 lane highway.
After all time is money here and the more trips you make, the more money you earn.
We arrived to a cold but bearable Mussoorie weather. The cars in Dehradun was to bring us to this spot and then we had to walk around. We did that at a much cheaper option using the bus.
Mussoorie is built on hills and the roads go up and down, narrowing and broadening as the hills permitted.
