The George Everest House, located in Mussoorie, Uttarakhand, India, is a historical site that was once the residence of Sir George Everest. Sir George Everest was the Surveyor General of India in the 19th century and played a significant role in the Great Trigonometric Survey of India, which helped establish the height of the world's highest mountain, Mount Everest, named in his honor. From the to of the George Everest peak the view of Himalaya is awesome.

We didn’t find the house the remains of which no longer exist we were told but we enjoyed the museum of cartography recently opened to commemorate Everest’s work as Survey General and others. The walk up from the car park is challenging but very beautiful. The view from the top looking north is great but to the south you see nothing due to pollution.

From the parking lot, you start walking up a steep but paved trail to reach the Everest House. From this point on, you walk up further (giant steps at times and also a gravel trail) for about 40mnts.to reach the summit. This is an exhausting walk up and is not for everyone. Be prepared. Take water and hiking shoes is a must(I saw people with their flip flops!). Enjoy the 360 degree views of the distant mountains and of course, fresh breeze. Again, this walk is only for a determined visitor and is demanding. We were told that there are electric vehicles that can take you to the house. But we did not see one. Good Luck and have fun!

Superb place. There is a climb of 1.5kms. Electric vehicle is available to go up. You can take your car too, at a fee of 500. Walking is advised. The top is a nice picnic spot. From there you can go all the way to the top of a hill from where you get amazing views.

The place offers spectacular views but only if you are willing to climb a steep hill of nearly 2 kms..The road to the climb is good.to develop tourism they must have EV vehicle esp for senior travellers

Sir George really had the privileged life and luxury to stay at such beautiful location. There is a hike of around 1 to 1.5km from base. The road is perfect motorable, but it's closed for tourist vehicles. We have to walk.upto the house. There is everest base camp cafe too for eating and hangout. We can Camp too there. Lot of maggi and momos eating place..the last stretch to the top is little adventurous and rewards with some amazing views. We get to see the winter line!! The only one of two place in this world

Visit to Mussorie would be incomplete without a visit to the George everest peak. The 360 degree view of the entire range from the top is worth dying for, especially at the time of sunset, it was surreal. The short hike was just filled with fun. If you miss this, you haven't seen anything.

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
