Recently, We were on a short and enjoyable family trip to Mussoorie, the Queen of Hills.

Road trips with family are always refreshing and rejuvenating.

This outing was after a long-long time, due to obvious reasons (the Pandemic).

Mussoorie is a hill station, in the Dehradun district, in the Indian state of Uttarakhand.

It’s about 280 km from Delhi, situated at the height of 2005 mt. that is 6578 ft. from sea level.

Sharing some pictures here—

The first picture is of the Deodar trees, native to the Western Himalayan Region, India.

These fascinating trees are about 40 meters to 60 meters high. As you ascend the hill station of Mussoorie in Uttarakhand, you can view these tall beautiful trees on one side of the mountain roads. On the other side is of course, the valley.

The second picture is taken from the clean and awesome trekking path of the Lal Tibba, where you can breathe in the fresh and refreshing air of the greens all around.

Lal Tibba is the highest point of Mussoorie, from where you can also view the mighty Himalayan Regions.

Fascinating view indeed.
