Ans: Tired of your daily, monotonous routine and want a change to relax and freshen up in the arms of nature? Mussoorie might turn out to be your rescuer. This popular summer retreat has a soothingly pleasant weather in summers, rainy monsoons and chilly winters. To help you plan your visit let us inform you about the best time to visit this fascinatingly beautiful hill station.


  • Summers (April to June): If you want to escape the summer heat then Mussoorie welcomes you with open arms to enjoy its cool and pleasant weather. To give you a right picture just slip into your dream land and imagine yourself taking a walk, surrounded by lush green conifers and a soft breeze tickling you. The temperature during this time rises to a maximum of 30°C and does not fall below 10°C. You might need some light winter clothing for the night.


  • Monsoon(July to September)
    A friendly suggestion, avoid going during the monsoon as the roads are really slippery and it pours all day long making difficult to explore the place. The monsoon here usually arrives in jJly but some pre monsoon shower can be experienced in June. The heavy rains make it very inconvenient to move around. Also there are blood sucking leeches during this time that add to the inconvenience.

  • Winters (Late October to Mid February): Winters here are cold and can send a chill through your spine. The temperature rises to a maximum of 10°C and may fall to 1°C or below during the nights, so do not forget to carry all those warm and cozy pullovers, jackets and shawls. For all those who have just seen snow capped mountains but never seen it actually happen, the place can surprise you with a sudden snowfall in the months of January and February. The soft snowflakes falling on your face will leave you ticklish and ensuring truckloads of fun once it settles down looking like a whipped cream.

New year celebration in this majestic place will transpire its energy and excitement all throughout the year, so do not hold back!


During the peak season the roads get jammed due to traffic or snow in the winters so try leaving early from
Dehradun so that you reach on time and have ample time to explore the surreal beauty of Mussoorie.
