Gun Hill is the second highest peak in Mussoorie
. During pre-independence days a gun mounted on this peak used to be fired to indicate mid day which helps the people to adjust their watches, and hence this name.
Gun Hill offers panoramic view of the Himalayan
ranges such as Banderpunch, Srikantha, Pithwara and the Gangotri
group on one side and the Doon Valley
on the other. One could also catch the birdsí eye perspective of the Doon valley. One can enjoy a memorable ropeway ride to the top or a climb of about twenty minutes.
