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.

This trek was also a good warm-up after Nachiketa Tal for the final trek to Gomukh.

... carrying anything, so I’m not sure why the monkey went after her. Maybe she looked like one of his ex-girlfriends? Anyway, the woman’s husband scared the monkey away, and I thought that would be the end of it. But to my amazement, the monkey snuck up on the man who had defended his wife – and the monkey slapped that man – as if to pay him back for what he had done. So these monkeys seem to be aware of the concept of revenge. ...
Our breakfast this moring was quick and well organised and very good. Mussoorie was developed by the poms and the prior to that by the Muharajah to escape the heat of the flat country below, and they re very correct, it is a beautiful place, cool and very mountainous, relatively clean too. We went fro a drive in taxis down to Kempty falls, spetacular from a distance but grotty and over developed when you're up close. On the way ...

Meals at Parmarth Niketan are meant to be taken in silence in the yogic tradition, however this seldom seems to be the case as there is a wide range of yoga adherents from all corners of the world visiting here. Food is plentiful and well-spiced according to ayurvedic principles namely the use of turmeric (the spice of life) and cumin (a common cure for flatulence), very important in a diet that consists primarily of ...
