Me & my husband (46 & 50) visited Everest House in Oct 2021 when renovations were just being completed & the place was being readied by the Govt for inauguration in Nov.

If you notice, there are mixed reviews here. Some good, some not so. The reviews are subjective due to the reviewers own experiences & exposure to Uttarakhand's scenic spots & hikes.

Please be aware that the actual hike begins only from Everest House.

When we visited in Oct, cars/vehicles were not allowed to go till Everest House & people had to trek uphill an additional 3 kms from the main gate to reach the same, that too, without a place to sit or rest or even buy drinking water; so would suggest that one finds out if cars are now allowed till Everest House, before visiting.

Secondly, after renovations, very steep stone steps have been unnecessarily created (why on earth does the govt do this?) on the hiking trail.
Some bright spark in the govt probably wanted to lower the govt's revenues by excluding citybred tourists & families with kids, from visiting & hiking here!

So if one is 50+, or just used to the city life, or unfit, or with small kids, I would personally not recommend this.

Also, since we had just returned after doing a portion of the Tungnath trek in Chopta, seeing the views of Auli and trekking the forest trails of Jabarkhet & Devalsari... these views didn't excite us that much. All the above treks had places to sit & rest & had not many steep steps to navigate. As a city-bred couple b/w 45-50 yrs, we could easily climb those & get mesmerizing views to boot!

So, no. The steep stone steps recently created by the Govt on the hiking trail, are a deterrent, (they could easily have made much lower steps) and we returned without completing the hike. Would not visit again.

On the other hand, for the young, fit hikers, this would be a nice place to visit.

For those who like short hikes and treks, this is a good trail. The ascent isn't too difficult and the views from the top are typically those you get from mountain tops.
We unfortunately went on a Saturday and had to deal with noisy crowds and trails that had plastic packets and water bottles littered.

Far away from the madding crowd is the hike to the Everest peak and Everest house. The short hike of about 40 mins takes one from the meadow at the beginning of the walking trail, to the Peak that opens up to all the snowpeaks - swargarohini, Bandarpoonch, Srikant, Gangotri I, II, III, Jaonli, Brigupanth, Satopant, Kedarnath, Chaukhamba. Best to avoid the Everest House so that you can spend time on the hike to the Peak, which offers great vista of himalayas

People are not being honest about this site. First of all most people are driving to the location and then begin a very steep but paved hike uphill for at least 30 minutes or more. Along the way you see lots of rubbish left by people who bought snacks at the start and decided to just leave the chips bags along the way. Once you reach the top of the paved part, it’s not clear what to do next as there are no real signs. Just construction of a house(?) and some more food stalls. I guess you have to go up an unmarked steep path for another 30 minutes to where there are some flags. To the peak. It could be nice if people didn’t litter, there was more signage and if there were some places to maybe sit and rest once you arrive. It’s a waste of time.

George Everest House: is situated about 6 kms from Gandhi Chowk in Mussoorie and one of the major tourist attractions in Mussoorie which is secluded and peaceful. It offers spectacular views of the snow-clad Himalayan peaks and panoramic views of the Doon Valley.:Advisable to visit from 10: AM to 6 PM

The government has finally woken up to the historical value of the house and is getting it restored. Hopefully it will be restored well. As of today it is just a nice pit stop on way to Cloud's end for the magnificent views of the valley this place affords. The house itself has been vandalized and is in run down condition.

It's a minimal trek, but is currently being renovated so also need to walk around 3km in a muddy terrain, many eateries are available on the way. You can enjoy the trek as the cold himalayan wind brushes your ears
