valentine's day getaway in mussoorie

- Party

Every year, Valentine’s Day is a boon for some couples and a bane for others. For the uninitiated, this day of love can be confusing, awkward, and detrimental to their relationship while others thrive and use it to take their relationship to the next level. This year, why not plan something special like a surprise Valentine’s Day Getaway in Mussoorie instead of wasting the opportunity?


A Valentine’s Day Getaway has several advantages. Instead of becoming prey to prying eyes and fodder for comments, a getaway allows you to spend time with your better half in the privacy and comfort of a hidden resort so love can bloom.


Also, instead of investing in fleeting machinations of material possessions like jewelry and expensive gifts that only serve as obstacles between people, isn’t it better to make lifelong memories with those who truly matter to you and who will be there with you for everlasting eternity? We think so.



Where to go


As far as hill stations go, Mussoorie or Mansuri is perhaps the most revered classic. Earlier, this was the gold standard for the most scenic and romantic hill stations in India for several good reasons. Due to the many elite boarding schools in the vicinity, it was heavily popularized and quickly developed early on.  


These boarding schools in and around Mussoorie used to be a status symbol and its many students have romanticized this town and given it a nostalgic and iconic appeal. Many of these students returned to Mussoorie after growing up and added to the town in many different ways.


Overall, Mussoorie has everything you can expect from a hill station. Pretty hillocks, meandering pathways, chilly climes, waterfalls, lakes, secluded spots, adventure sports, awe-inspiring views, and charming little bazaars are all the norm when you come to this exciting mountainside resort town.
