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.

... in Brahman.
· Absolute ahiàsä or non-violence is not possible at the physical level, but it is possible at the mental level; one can eschew all intentions of hurting anybody. Tapovanji Maharaj maintained that as far as possible, even sannyäsa must be taken without hurting anybody. This was the reason why he waited till his brother was settled in life. However, even while living in the house, after performing his worldly duties he spent ...
... ve never heard of. It’s all delicious and we already know we’ll be coming back again.
With good walks and views planned for the afternoon we decide to let the heat of the day pass in a brand new Aquarium. Jawahar Aquarium has a water fountain outside and an escalator so our anticipation is good. The reality, like so many times in India, soon squashes it flat. In tanks far too small are over fed grey fish that speed from one end of the tank to another ...
... behind us!! After crouching for a bit we decide to come out of hiding and take another look....this time the coast is clear. It is safe to say we actually pooped our pants! Sat by a river for 7 hours which was boring even with books cards and a packed lunch we were fidgety! Went for another walk and saw tiger prints again already we are pretty nervous by this, then we here striding in the jungle towards us and a gut renching roar right next to us, try ...
... at the Mussoorie Bus Stand next to the railway station in Dehra Dun at about 10:30. That means that this would be an ideal bus for me to take to catch my flight home.
The outskirts of Dehra Dun were very charming, with lots of trees, nice houses and plenty of space. But the center of the city was crowded, dirty, noisy, busy, etc. In other words, the "real" India. I spent the next two hours just walking around the city. There are some shopping streets ...
