Doon Valley

Friday, February 20, 2009

Doon Valley: My favorite place on globe, here I squandered many years of my existence. This is view of ‘Queen of Hills’ Mussoorie, (Hindi: मसूरी Masūrī) is a city and a municipal board, about 34 km from Dehradun district in the Indian state of Uttarakhand

This hill station, situated in the foothills of the Himalaya ranges Being at an average altitude of 2,000 meters (6,600 ft), Mussoorie, with its green hills and varied flora and fauna, is a fascinating hill resort. Commanding snow ranges to the north-east, and glittering views of the Doon Valley and Shiwalik ranges in the south, the town was once said to present a 'fairyland' atmosphere to tourists.

Your hill resort town is quite attractive situated like it is up on the top of a mountain. What views the people must have from there. A beautiful place to be sure.

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made straight and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together
