Gunhill Point is reached by a single trolley cable car, which makes the wait a bit longer in queues. The views from the top are breath-taking. There are plenty stall games for children, and a few cafes serving nice and hot tea, along with snacks.

The hill area above is developed into picnic complex like a typical tourist destination. The Telescope point there is a time pass, the telescope is old and pictures are not clear. Not a quite or serence place

In olden times a huge gun kept atop this hill would fire ar 12 noon for all to adjust time. It no longer has a gun but binoculars to view the captivating panorama from closer look.
The Himalayan snow clad peaks to one side while the sprawling Mussoorie town and the vast Doon Valley all can be enjoyed from here.
You can sit and enjoy hot coffee/tea with snacks or dress up in traditional attire and get yourself clicked.
The snow clad Himalayan panorama is visible in winter months and sometimes during Monsoon but hardly visible in Summer months. Best time to view the Himalayan panorama is from Mid November to Mid March.

A ropeway, with passengers packed without concern for social distancing or sanitization in Covid times, goes up from the Mall Road to Gun Hill giving closeup views of the haphazard development of mediocre hotels along the slope. The top of the Gun Hill is a complete man made disaster with the entire periphery taken up by dirty restaurant shacks and the central small area by rides for kids. AVOID!

You can go to top of the hill either by road which is stiff and narrow or by rope way which is chargeable Rs.75/- p.p.So almost all prefer to go by rope way thus increasing the waiting time at rope way to almost an hour during season time. But what you see once you go to top by waiting for so much time, only shops selling snacks and other items, which you can have in town also. Actually the waiting time in rope way in both way takes more time than the time you spent on the hill.

You can reach gun hill point via cable car cost 125 rupees on Mall road. The view of ranges over there is nice. Click a couple of pictures. For kids small games are also available. To get down they cost 75rs for cable car. Though you can travel back to Mall road via road also.

From the Mall road you need to walk up about 1.5 to 2 kilometers to take ropeway to gun hill point. The walk is comfortable with food stalls to keep you entertained.
The ropeway here is really pathetic. They fill quite a number of people in one cable car. People even go standing in it. Approxly 15 to 18 people are made to travel in one cable car of the capacity of 10 people... this is done simply to increase the revenue. The cable car passes just couple of feets above the hotels on mall road... making your experience less then pleasant. I feel safety measures are not followed at this place. However the view of Missourie from the top is breathtaking.

The long queue of tourists wanting to go up the rope way is no indication of the place. Other than a quick ride on the ropeway there is no other plus with this attraction. The top is terrible with unhygienic food stalls and vendors selling cheap Chinese stuff. The views are not all that great. There are better places in Mussoorie from where you can great views. Avoid.

Don't go at all. There is literally nothing up there. No view. Rs 125 per person rope way return ticket. Back in 3 minutes. What a waste. The view from my room in sterling was much much better.
