Mussoorie is one the beautiful hill stations in India and the most frequently visited.

In 1820, Captain Young of the British army was influenced by the beauty of this place and made it his residence.

After its discovery, this hill station gradually developed as a centre of education, business, tourism and beauty.
The hill station of Mussoorie also serves as the gateway to Yamunotri and Gangotri, much popular Hindu shrines in north India. The shrines of Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath make up the Char Dham Yatra, four highly sacred destinations of the Hindus.

The woods around - of pine, cedar, birch, oak, rhododendron and deodar - glow green.
