If You’re Looking For A Romantic Getaway, Mussoorie Is The Place For You!

I was first introduced to Mussoorie when I read Ruskin Bond’s story  “The Cherry Tree” in school. All of Bond’s work was greatly inspired by his home in the hills, and you’ll see that he wasn’t lying about the loveliness of this little hill town the minute you arrive.

Breathing in the cold, crisp mountain air is both a refreshing and rejuvenating experience for lungs acclimatised to city smog. The salubrious climate immediately envelops you and awakens your senses.
Apart from tranquillity, you’ll find a culture here that’s unique to the place, and a cuisine even more so.

What To Do

Lose yourself in thought and time as you make your way uphill to Landour on meandering roads with trees on either side. Visit the bookstore that Ruskin Bond himself often visits.

What To Eat

Enjoy a meal and a view of the valley outside at the charming Little Llama cafe, where the wonderful owner will make you feel right at home.
P.s. The hot chocolate is to die for!
At Char Dukan, you can indulge in fancy omelettes, Nutella pancakes, freshly-made waffles and piping hot momos on the street!

What To Buy

The walk up to Sister’s Bazaar is well worth it for home-made products like yak cheese, chutneys, pickles and fresh fruit jams you can buy there.
Chic Chocolate has a whole section of home-made chocolates that will make you feel like you’ve walked into Honeydukes.

Mussoorie is a typical Indian hill station in many ways: there’s a lot of walking involved, and there are a few viewpoints and bazaars and even a mall road for tourists to visit. What sets it apart is the distinct colonial aura around it, its charming cafes and a way of life reminiscent of the days of the Raj.

After spending pretty much all of my teen years waiting for a Hogwarts letter that never came, I gave up and settled for being a wizard with words instead. A hopeless romantic, when I’m not penning down short stories, I’m busy imagining my own happily ever after.
