Gun Hill, Mussoorie

1.0
Mountain · Historic Site
Particularly popular with photographers, Gun Hill offers panoramic views of the surrounding area, including several ranges of the Himalayas. Take the 20-minute walk from the town center or opt to ride the cable car, whose short route yields a different perspective on the hill station and mountainous landscape. The hill received its name during the colonial era, when a gun mounted at the top of its water reservoir was fired at midday each day, so that residents could adjust their watches.
