The popularity of these two places among both Indian as well as foreign tourists is equal and offer a relaxing and wholesome break from the heat and dust of the urban existence. Well, pros say, hill-resorts (hill-stations) or sea-shore areas refresh people's minds.


Coorg, officially known as Kodagu, is undoubtedly the most affluent hill station in Karnataka. It is an evergreen place owing to its weather which remains pleasant throughout the year. One can visit this place at any time of the year. One can even add Chikmagalur and some other nearby hill stations.

It is a good place to visit. Located 34 km from Dehradun, it is at an altitude of 2003 Mtrs in the Garhwal hills above sea-level. The best seasons to visit Mussoorie is from April to June and again from September to November.

  • Speciality: Mussoorie is known as the Queen of Hills. It is a full lush green hill, the varied flora and fauna and the amazing view of Shivalik ranges make it beautiful and mesmerizing. The cold climate and fog will sooth your mood and make it memorable with its beauty.

The similarities between the two destinations lie in the fact that they have equally cool temperatures owing to the hilly and mountainous and waterfalls. But if you are planning for holidays, Mussoorie will be more recommendable to visit and to enjoy the nature closely.
