While our self driven road trip to Kanatal, we had good 3 nights stay at Kasmanda Palace in Mussourie. It is located at one of the highest points in Mussourie.
Best location, especially when Mussourie is flooded with people during summer vacation times, this is a great respite to enjoy the queen of hill stations. We had our best time at the open air cafe which was giving awesome view of Mussourie and Dehradun valley. Ambiance was perfect for a royale experience. Kids were amazed by the hunter's trophies (animal heads and skins by expert taxidermist). It has gorgeous interiors, feels like a palace. It has a huge gardens with exotic plantations. We thoroughly enjoyed our times.
Food was just good and tickled out taste buds. Thanks to the Chef.
They offer good up-down car facility to reach the mall road as drive to the palace is a bit difficult and steep. Good service and good driver too.
The rooms are OK with very basic facilities. They can be better, especially televisions could be LCDs. Windows were not properly netted and were fixed by brown taps by the housekeeping guys to prevent mosquitoes. Mostly no charging points in the room and we were carrying 9 gadgets (mobile phones, laptops, camera, GPS, tablets and iPODs). We had to plan the charging and it was almost full time activity.
Things could be more professional too. We asked for laundry and the guy came with a hand written laundry price list on waste paper. There were no laundry bags. They asked for cash against laundry delivery, which could be done in better way.
Note: I don't know if I have to share this. Our 5 yr old kiddie was going to the open air cafe through the dining area through the connecting door which was followed by the stair case. While the child was going on the stair case, obviously was slow as steps were large, one man was walking behind him, who was probably in rush. He opened the door and did not care about the child and child almost fell down, he did not care and just walked away arrogantly. No sorry, not apologies to the mom of the child waiting for the child to come up. We thought that he must be some guest who did not care. We inquired and found that he was the owner himself. We were shocked for some time and so was the child. We expected some courtesy from him. Anyways, it happens and we have to move on.

... big scope on it. This was also gas powered (we didn’t get to fire the gunpowder one, unfortunately, which is meant for thick
skinned animals, such as elephants), and we fired at a foam deer instead of the
tiger. Most of us hit this target right on the money (its bum), except for
Jack, who went for the headshot, and got the poor deer right between the eyes.
Overall, these two days were certainly some for the books, and I was thrilled that we ...

When I entered my apartment at about half past one in the morning, after an absence of about five weeks, I was greeted by hundreds – if not thousands – of little bugs, most of them dead but some of them not, spread all across my floor. It was a bit disgusting. I couldn’t clean them up because, as I am not an Indian, I didn’t want to run my ...
... pretzel! There are several different schools of thought on the technique of asana. Phool Chatti focused on the ashtanga yoga style, one of the more aerobic styles. Iyengar focuses on very precise placement of postures which are usually held for a number of minutes, Bikram yoga is taken in a heated room, Hatha is a more gentle form. These are just a few; there is a style for everyone.
