Sunset at Gun Hill, Mussoorie

As a part of our journey to Char Dham Yatra, I am trying to share my precise experiences and showcase the mesmerizing beauty of the Garhwal Himalayan Ranges of Uttara Khand through the images caught up on my camera.

After Company Bagh, we visited Gun Hill point in Mussoorie. Gun Hill is the second top peak of Mussoorie, which is 500 meters uphill trek from Mall Road. There is a rope way also to go up the hill. But we preferred to trek up as a preparation for our difficult treks ahead in the trip. To be honest, many of us found trekking a mere 500 meters up hill was difficult. 

During pre-independence period there used to be a Gun mounted on the top and used to be fired at mid-day to enable people to adjust their watches. It provides 360 degree view of Himalayan ranges namely but we could hardly see any of these ranges due to clouds. What we could see was the beautiful sunset on western side of the hill. I am sharing some of these pictures for you. Here we go:

The Sun is about to set. Beautiful!

Look at the sky it's getting more and more Orange.

 Words are too small to describe the beauty. Just watch and enjoy

 The Sun is about to Kiss the Mountain. What a Beauty!

And here it did. Magnificent! Isn't it?

Now it's going to hide behind he Mountain. Awesome view.


 And finally, it says Good bye for today, with a promise to come again tomorrow.

It was really difficult for me to bring some of the best shots because I clicked as many shots not to miss this wonderful event of my life. I hope you liked them. If liked please subscribe the blog and share it with others. Thank you, keep watching the space for more updates.
