Woke up at 8, after a great sleep of 12 hours! As usual, my first act was to go out in search of breakfast. Since I was yet again not able to find anything, I returned to my room and finished off the last of my whole wheat bread – topped with peanut butter and blueberry preserves.
My next …
... undertaken with a well-equipped group of sädhus. On the way, some merchants from Bhutan joined them. In those days, the yäträs were very dangerous, as people would be attacked by dacoits and robbed of their belongings. One suchthief from a gang spied on them and found that the merchants were carrying some valuables. He struck up a conversation with Tapovanji Maharaj, understanding him to be a genuine ‘lama’ with no possessions. Maharaj invited ...
... flow and can be developed very well by restricting businesses everywhere near the fall and providing adequate parking facilities.
We got exhausted just by commuting between vehicle and the fall and could not dare take a dip in so unhygienic conditions.
We came back to Kasmanda Palace and had our lunch. We decided to rest and relax as a long journey to Delhi was to follow the next day.
... br> In addition to wanting to explore Dehra Dun, part of my motivation was to test getting there – in order to prepare for my eventual departure in a couple of weeks. To leave India, I’ll need to get myself to the Jolly Grant airport, which serves Dehra Dun but is still some 30 km away. To get to the airport from Mussoorie, I can either take a taxi the whole way (for 1,300 rupees), or take a bus down to Dehra Dun (for 47 rupees), and from there a ...
... extreme shortage of women. (Duh!) So there are a lot of (sexually) frustrated males in India – particularly among the poor. At the same time, a society that disdains women like this produces men who generally don’t have a very high opinion of the worth of women. After all, if they are routinely killed off at birth – how much can they be worth?
And finally, in India’s male-dominated politics, there historically hasn’t been ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Vishnu Palace Mussoorie
First I should point out that this hotel has quite a range of rooms. I stayed in one of the nicer ones for a week. The view from my room was spectacular and the quality of the room was fantastic. I might have stayed in the room forever, but it was a bit too expensive for me, especially considering that I was staying in Mussoorie for about a month.. (I was paying Rs. 1,600 per night.) At the time, though, after some rough traveling, I needed some comfort and luxury - which this place was able to provide.
The staff was excellent: friendly and service-minded. The only negative was the noisy (Indian) guests who would gather in groups in the hallways and conduct noisy conversations outside my door as if they owned the place. But that was more a characteristic of Indians and I don't suppose the hotel can really be blamed for that.
Overall I loved my time there and I would gladly stay there again in the future should my budget allow it.
