Mussoorie is known as the Queen of the Hills. It got its name from the local shrub known as "Mansoor". It is situated 34 km from Dehradun. It is one of the most attractive hill stations of northern India. Every year hordes of tourist both from India as well as from foreigners gather to this hill station. It attracts tourist especially in winter months when the snow covered the Himalayan Range. Summer months are also very pleasant.

Mussoorie is very near to Delhi and other pilgrimage city like Rishikesh, Haridwar, Gangotri, Yamunotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath. The greenery can be seen in the month of September and November. There are many places where one could enjoy the shopping. A handmade walking wooden stick made of oak wood is famous in Mussoorie. In 1960, the first Tibetan school was established in Mussoorie.
