Mussoorie; The queen of Hills….

Mussoorie is known as the queen of hills, popular and one of the most beautiful hill station in India. It is a small town  situated on the hills. The glorious and magnificent view of the mountains, snow during winter, lush green forest, splendid sunrise and sunset and beautiful view of the clouds make it a must visit place for people who love nature….

I had an opportunity to visit the place for the first time with my brother in October 2014 when the winter was just starting in India. We travelled to Mussoorie by motor bike and enjoyed the beautiful drive on the first day and also had a chance to go by bus on the next day. We visited some of the places and climbed mountain to have a view of Himalayan snow covered mountains from far. The climate was perfect to spend the day. I also had a long discussion on development with Dr. Jeph one of my friends while watching the view of the great mountains from his house. Here are some of the photographs of the place taken in two different days which would give you a glimpse of my experience in Mussoorie.

God willing I would plan many more visits to this place and especially during snow and share with you my experience through my photographs and hopefully with a DSLR next time.

Sat Tal (Seven lakes)

We had our reporting meeting in October at Sat Tal Christian Ashram which is very near to famous Nainital, Uttarakhand. The Ashram was established by well-known missionary Dr. E Stanley Jones in 1930. The ashram is situated on a beautiful mountain surrounded by 7 lakes called Sat Tal. We had an amazing time during the four days of meeting.

There are some of the photographs of the place.
