A Visit to Benog Wildlife Sanctuary

If you love the call of the wild and are an animal lover, then visiting Benog Wildlife Sanctuary in monsoon is a must! Mussoorie in rainy season automatically becomes greener as the rain bestows the rich flora of the hills with freshness. The greenery surrounding the sanctuary looks more radiant while the forest also witnesses the bloom of several medicinal plants and herbs. And not just that, the floating mist by the mountains makes the journey even more enchanting and memorable.

Explore the Waterfalls

Mussoorie is home to several waterfalls. One such is Kempty Waterfall, which is a crowd-favourite during the rainy season. As it falls down the rocky slantings, the cascade creates a foam in the bottom, making the sight a charming one! During monsoon, the rain mixes with the waterfall, giving it a more alluring appearance. Many come here for a swim or a bath and is considered to be one of the most popular things to do in Mussoorie in July. This landmark is considered ideal for a visit during the months of July and August when the surroundings of the cascade are filled with lush greenery and the whole area brims with vitality and freshness.

A Trip to Lal Tibba

Here, you can unwind and breathe in the serenity of the place. As droplets of water adorn the summit point, the entirety of Mussoorie is painted with romanticism and tranquillity.

A Ride to Gun Hill

Every visitor to Mussoorie must ride the ropeway trolley to Gun Hill. Being the second highest hill in Mussoorie, visitors are treated to some of the most paradisiacal views.
