Our next destination from Dehradun was Mussoorie, a distance of 35 km on a hilly and winding road. We left at 5.30pm from Dehradun, after saying "bye" to Paramjeet Singh, reached Mussoorie Himalayan Club at 7pm and checked in at the hotel for the night's stay.
The city was lively, with lot of noise due to the celebrations of burning RAVANA, on the occasion of NAVRATRI.
In the night we sat around the campfire, spent sometime chatting with other guests of the hotel, had some food and went bed.
Mussoorie is a hill station and a municipal board in the Dehradun District of the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand. It is located about 35 km from the state capital of Dehradun and 290 km north from the national capital of New Delhi. This hill station, situated in the foothills of the Garhwal Himalayan ranges, is also known as the Queen of the Hills. The adjoining town of Landour, which includes a military cantonment, is considered part of 'greater Mussoorie', as are the townships of Barlowganj and Jharipani.
The next morning, we went for a walk seeing the valleys and hills in morning sunshile and slight mist, had some tea in a local teastall. It was really pleasant and wonderful. 
We had some breakfast, checked out from the hotel, went to see KIMPTY FALLS about 15km from Mussoorie on a winding road and a beautiful view of the himalyan mountains. 
After 12noon we headed back towards Dehradun, met a colleague Mr Shephard from Our Own, Dubai. 
We drove back to Delhi passing thorough Roorkee, Muzaffanagar, Meerut reached Gurgaon at 12.30am.
It was a very pleasant trip. Glad all was well.
