I went from Delhi - Dehradoon - Mussoorie last July. I must say it was simply out of this world. Went in my Accent with the wife.

Stopped in Doon for a night and then in Mussoorie for 2 nights. The place & monsoon drive was excellent. Stopping in Cheetal for a meal and then the drive after doon is too good.

Also walking around the Mall Road, or simply having a coffee in Barista in the hills !!! Awww. How much I wish I could be there !!!

Here are a few memories of my last trip Hope this gives you enough encouragement to head off there.

Wow. Just the thought of driving in the monsoons leads me to bliss. I believe almost all the places (on a decent altitude) are a feast for your senses during monsoon.

Attaching a few pics of my various drives in the last monsoon. Let the pics speaks for themselves..

It seems just a prod was needed for the Northerners to come out with all guns blazing..

Tanveer: mind blowing snaps and Kocharji, kya baat hai..

Anup: amazing snaps of the parvati valley. Seeing those snaps, the monsoon drive itch has started..
