Idea for a perfect vacation to Mussoorie

I went to Mussoorie last year, along with my family and a few friends. It was such an awesome trip that cannot be just left behind without recalling it several times. We were planning for a trip to Rajasthan initially. But we had to cancel the trip at the last minute due to several cases of Swine Flu in Rajasthan. We were scared very much to visit Rajasthan with small kids. So, we cancelled the trip and hotels booked for the trip. But my hubby wanted to go to some other place instead of Rajasthan.

After a few days of discussion, we finally decided to Mussorie which is a beautiful hill station located in the state of Uttarakhand. But we were bothering about the pain of booking the flights and hotels at the last minute. It is situated in the foothills of the Garhwal Himalayan range.

How to visit Mussoorie from Chennai?

As I am basically located in Chennai, I found it easier to reach Mussoorie by taking a flight to Delhi. If you are not located near an airport, you should include your plan to reach your nearby airport. Forget visiting by train from Chennai especially if you have children. Going by a flight can make your journey more convenient and easy.

1. Reach Chennai airport.

2. Take a flight to Delhi.

3. Book a car or van based on the number of people to reach and explore Mussoorie.

4. Come back to Delhi.

5. Take a flight to Chennai to reach Chennai airport.

6. Come back home.

Although it looks simple to visit Mussoorie, it is not that easy in reality.

We went by Indigo Airlines. Please check the Flight Schedule  carefully and book according to your convenience.



Please send enough time to book flight tickets and hotel rooms. Please make sure that you have a print out of the bookings. It is good as you might not be able to charge your mobile phones frequently if you are busy in exploring the place.
