Mussoorie 2 - Company Garder with Mall Road

:
We were on the way to Mussoorie.

Having Maggie at Maggie Point was a great way to unwind, just drive along Dehradun Mussoorie road until after shiv mandir. And there were a few road side hawker sheds popularly known as the “Maggie Point”, here you can ask them to prepare a hot spicy Maggie (your own style). We bought some chips packets and had pics of that panoramic sight and flew away upwards to Mussoorie.

Roads were full of curves. I was told that the way to Mussoorie was very complicated to drive, but I didn't find so. I could manage to drive over there easily, what I had to do was just follow the rules of driving in hills, which are
  • Keep the car on your side of road.
  • Blow horn on every turn. Dipper when dark.
  • While going upwards, give way to down-comers.
  • On returning downwards, keep car in gear, never off the ignition while driving.
  • Speed thrills but kills.
Correct me if I am wrong and add more points if they exist.
:
Road to Dhanaulti was on our way to Mussoorie, we wished to visit there next time. Mussoorie was 4 km and 32 km was Dhanaulti.

We wanted to see the Kempty Fall but we didn't have much time as we had to return on same day, so choosed Company garden over Kempty Fall, which was on the way to Kempty Fall. Kempty Fall is 15 more kilometers away from Mussoorie. I will definitely go there soon.

Although I gave Rs 50 for parking, still I had no space to park my car at Company Garden. I am pretty good at parking so made space for myself. Company Garden is popular tourist destination. During season, the Company Garden has beautiful collection of flowers and plants. The artificial lake and garden enables people enjoying Boating and Nature Walk, respectively.

It was so beautifully decorated that we could spend our whole day there. An aritificial lake in which kids were boating, along side two artificial water-falls, which were surrounded by the people taking pics with them. One can see the panoramic view of nearby hills from there. There were plenty of variety of flowers which were beautifully decorated in small pots, many of them were new to me. There was also a food court, where I didn't try food as there was lack of time, we had to explore the Mall Road yet.

We left Company garden by 4 PM, decided to have lunch at Mall Road. We were on our way to mall road, admiring beautiful hill, thanking God for making earth so beautiful.

We faced traffic jams on the way to Mall road as the road was narrow and trucks/buses were on them. Well, no probs, as it was great to be in hills, we were stuck in jam, inhaling fresh air of hills, watching out from window, staring beautiful people walking, dreaming for second visit and last running out of money.
As I reached Mall road's entryway, soon I reminded that once I read in Manu bhai's Mussoorie story about the Rs 100 entry fee for Mall road. But it was late, as I was backed by few cars by that time. I paid Rs 100 parking and parked my car. Well it was not bad, as car should be safely parked, which could only be done at Mall road.

Wow! the beautiful Mall road, we liked it. First I found an ATM, got some money. I bought Reebok shoes as there was discount of 40%, which was not even available on my favourite shopping site Yebhi.com. It was 5:30, we had chowmeen and a dosa near the place from where people get cable cars for Gun Hill, the second highest peak of Mussoorie. We desperately wanted to spend more time there but I had to drive downhill so by 6:30 PM we left Mussoorie for back home to Faridabad. Around 8:30 we had crossed Dehradun.
:
We had very beautiful time there. It is worth to call Mussoorie, the Queen of Hills. On very that day, We promissed to Mussoorie to visit soon, as there was Kempty Fall left to explore, and also I want to be at Gun Hill via rope way.
