Gun Hill, Mussoorie


Gun Hill, located at an elevation of 2122 m above sea level, is a noted tourist attraction of Mussoorie. It is the second highest peak of the destination and holds great historical importance. Before independence, every afternoon a canon was fired from this place to tell the locals about the time and they used to adjust their clocks accordingly. Currently, the water reservoir of Mussoorie is present on this hill.

The place provides a beautiful view of the snow-covered Himalayan peaks and The Mall, which is a popular shopping centre in Mussoorie. To reach this place, travellers have to take a ropeway ride, which runs frequently for the convenience of the passengers. Tourists who enjoy walking can cover the distance by foot from The Mall.
