Overview

Gun Hill is the second highest hill in Mussoorie.  At a height of 2, 024 meters, this hill can be reached via the cable car.  It is believed that Gun Hill lies on an extinct volcano.

Located just 400 ft above the Mall Road, Gun HIll is a popular place for viewing the Himalayan Range and the Doon Valley. It takes a 20-minute walk from the Mall Road to reach the top.  The ropeway is the more preferred method of reaching the top as it offers a scenic view of the Himalayan range.  The Cable Car starts from Jhula Ghar on the Mall Road.  Gun Hill takes it's name because prior to Independence, there was a gun placed on the hilltop.  The gun used to be fired at midday so that people could adjust their watches accordingly.  In place of the gun, the hill has a water reservoir which serves the city of Mussoorie.  

Enjoy a cup of tea at the nearby tea stalls or a meal at a restaurant while you are there.

The Cable Car tickets are priced at Rs. 75 for a round trip  and it is operational from 10 am to 6 pm.
