How to Reach from Delhi to Mussoorie
One important thing, if you are from Delhi then you must travel to nearby mountain places like Himachal and Uttarakhand in Bus (Public Transport).
Only in Bus, you will be able to watch the serenity happening outside and that’s what I feel. Otherwise, it totally depends on person to person.
Daily buses run between Delhi to Mussoorie and usually take 8-9 hrs to cover the distance. The journey will be peaceful.
Note – I say this every time that don’t travel empty stomach likewise not with overloaded stomach because the hilly areas are criss-cross and food couldn’t be digested while sitting.
How to Reach from Dehradun to Mussoorie
Dehradun to Mussoorie is about 2-3 hrs and sometimes more depends on the traffic.
You can take a bus from Dehradun bus stand and the fare is Rs.60-Rs70.
Our Journey started from the Dehradun; early in the morning because we came from Delhi to Dehradun and have explored the capital for a day. We reached Dehradun bus stand to board our bus to Mussoorie. However, we thought that we take the bus early and will get there by within 2hrs, but the god’s plan is a bit different. As we reached the Bus stand we watched a long queue waiting for the bus to arrive. And every bus comes after 30 minutes gap.
i.e we waited for 1hr for our turn to get the no. of the bus we are traveling in;
I Have Highlighted the main points for an easy pick.
So, we stood in the line waiting for our turn its 10:30 a.m. in the morning, We had not thought that we have to wait for about 1:30 hrs for our turn. The delay is over our because the bus arrives and we left at 12:05 p.m. It is in the month of March; the peak season is around the corner. The bus fare is around 60Rs. The weather outside is very pleasing and we can’t wait to reach there.
At around, 1:40 p.m. we reached Mussoorie.
As we stood down from our bus, the beauty is refreshing. After walking some distances, we came across the mall road and headed towards our hotel which is near Clock Tower. After walking around 2-3 km we reached our hotel. We two have already decided that without wasting much of a time we will head towards Lal Tibba. At around, 2:30 p.m.
Honestly speaking, My all travel guides are unguided; means I don’t search a lot before planning and same I did and wrote Mussoorie travel guide after experiencing.
We left for Lal Tibba which is the highest point of Mussoorie at an elevation of 7,500ft approx. We started walking and it is becoming quite steep as we progressing further, hence there is a proper road to go, just gave us a feel of Trekking. Certainly, Around 5 p.m. in the evening, we reached Lal Tibba, there is a café from its top we can see some breathtaking views, but we have to buy something to go at the café top. So, we decided to take a Cold Coffee with Ice-cream which eventually allowed us to go on the Top.
We spent some time there clicking pictures enjoying a coffee while returning we had seen a famous chai shop since 1910 which named as Tip Top Tea Shop. And around 7 p.m. we reached our hotel. Took some rest it is about 8.pm. in the night.
We had planned to go visit mall road and enjoy the nightlife of this city. We had our dinner and went to our room around 11 p.m.
Next day we woke up early in the morning. Finally, today is the day of Kempty Falls so we decided to take a bike on rent and headed towards our journey which is around 14kms away from Mussoorie. We reached Kempty around 10 a.m. and started to explore. Eat Maggi at Kempty. After spending about 2 hrs at kempty we decided to go further to the Yamuna bridge.
But Time became our main problem because at 7 p.m. we have a bus to catch to Delhi. Rather we went back and in between had seen Company garden.
We reached Mussoorie around 2 p.m. and went to explore more in Mussoorie like Landour and Library Bazar. Our Journey of Mussoorie coming to an end as we took our Bus from Mussoorie bus stand and at around 4:30 p.m. left and reached Dehradun at 6: 00.pm.
The Two-day Journey is very Memorable and Joyful.
I hope my Mussoorie travel guide gave some input to plan your trip accordingly.
