“A trip to remember ....”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

We took a cab to go to Mussoorie which is about 60 km from the Jolly Grant airport, Dehradun. The cab cost was Rs. 1200. The uphill stretch had some nice views. The entry point to Mussoorie was the famed Mall Road, the hub of Mussoorie. From there we had to find the way to the resort where we were to stay -
Dalmia Resort (Highness Heights) http://www.dalmiaresorts.com/mussoorie_resorts.html . There was absolutely nothing surrounding our resort. And except for some 5-6 staff members, there was nobody else apart from us staying there either!

Our room offered stunning views of the hills and mountains and the valley below.

The best (and the only good) thing about the resort was their food. Be it the piping hot tea or their aloo parathas or the rotis and some paneer side dish which turned out to be our dinner menu everyday, everything was yummy. The funny part was since we were the only guests there, our dinner menu ended up being the staff’s too!

As we were just strolling around our resort in the evening, we came across a path with very beautiful scenery of pine and other trees on both sides. The pleasing greenery and the pleasant evening air were really rejuvenating! We couldn’t see even a single person in the vicinity. So we came back without knowing where the road would lead. It was only later that we came to know that the road would take us to Company/Municipal Garden( which in fact turned out to be the Top attraction in mussorie).

We had an even clear view of the surrounding hills from the balcony of the room it self . It was then that we realized that the view from Gun Hill was visible right from our room! I could stand in the balcony and gaze at the snow-capped Himalayas to my heart’s content.

There was an old, dilapidated bungalow uphill above our resort and it had a haunted-house-like feel to it. We checked with the resort folks if we can go there and went there in the evening. It was just a few minutes walk from the resort. There were a few kids playing cricket near the house.

The view from there was breathtaking. On one side was the valley and on the other side were the hills including the snow-capped Himalayas.

We were there just in time for sunset. In that vast open space, the sunset looked even more beautiful.

Over all as it was an special trip for us , we had a great time in the resort , but when comparing with a traditional hotel it is some what lacking in sense . The cost of stay was not much , so you could rate it as average . If the place would have had more attractions may be I would have rated it as good...
