The ride en-route Gun Hill is one of excitement as your heart keeps pounding inside the cable-car which slowly moves along a 400m long rope-way offering amazing bird's eye-view of the hills beneath Atop the hill, one gets to see mesmerising views of the Himalayan ranges namely Bunderpunch, Shrikanta, Pithwara along with picturesque sights of the Doon Valley and Mussorie town. On a clear sunny day, lucky eyes could catch glimpse of the Gangotri as well with telescopes.
