You need an Off…Sometimes

trip to mussoorie

Do you need a Break?

I definitely needed one from my Monotonous routine and so does my Bestie, as we are engrossed with our hectic jobs and crazy kids. But nothing could be planned the way we wanted.

Finally, without pondering much over the destination, we decided for a trip to Mussoorie. However, it doesn’t offer much but its perfect for a 2-day trip.

While I was jolting down the stopping places,  I realized that I was left with no option but to strike off half of them.

FALLS…risky with small kids


BOATING…not safe

This time things were different. I was sad as I didn’t want to miss on anything but had only 2 options- whether to postpone the trip or to alter it. I loved to choose latter option for the obvious reason….I needed  a change.



The given name is truly apt..a small open roof building on a hill painted RED, offering awesome view to the World’s highest peaks.
A telescope was like A cherry on the top!

What makes the view more cherish-able is LAL TIBBA Coffee.

It was a foamy, frothy and creamy hand beaten coffee with prefect Aroma..which complemented the view and weather.


While we were coming back from Lal Tibba, this eye-catchy restaurant made us halt at its door. We decided to have Momos but they told us it will take 15-20 mins.

Certainly, it was worth waiting for.

A nice, cozy restaurant with excellent decor- artifacts, colour, Tibetan themes.

Jackpot! Perfect seating for Kids


What I love about Mall Road is their Parking system. They do not allow any vehicle parking on the mall road but at the barriers.

This gives the Mall Road, its serenity. Unlike Simla Mall Road which is full of Mules and their waste, Mussoorie Mall Road succeeds in maintaining its beauty.

Upvote for Mussoorie tourism. Savored our taste buds at famous Lovely Omelette Centre.


There were not many but the Fish collection was good. Moreover with Kids, its a nice watch-out. The curiosity in my Son’s eyes made me happy. The main attraction was Mini Shark and Eel.

There were 2 crocodile faced fishes in the separate Hospitalized Tank. Poor!

I wish they recover soon to be a part of another alive Tank.


The way to falls was lavish green. It wasn’t that steep but with kids in our laps it felt like a Trek.

Smile says it all

Finally, we were there but heartbroken to see the condition . A slang in Punjabi “Bhatta baith gaya” meaning- “The condition has worsen” aptly suites the name.

The place was neither clean nor attractive- so poorly maintained. We rested on the Bench and enjoyed Maggi to lift up our mood.

Kids were up till that time and we rushed back to our Car for way back to Home sweet Home.

Overall, It was Happication(happy vacation)

    Thanks for the compliment to add my journey experience as “How to…..”. Though would say, for me, none of my journey feel perfect and always a scope of improvement. Each place gives new colors when visited again with different perspective
