Mussoorie is a hill station and a municipal board in the Dehradun District of the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand.

It is located about 35 km from the state capital of Dehradun and 290 km north from the national capital of New Delhi. This hill station, situated in the foothills of the Garhwal Himalayan ranges, is also known as the Queen of the Hills. Being at an average altitude of 1,880 meters (6,170 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 Shavlik ranges in the south, the town was once said to present a ‘fairyland’ atmosphere to tourists.

This grey and mauve line visible from Mussoorie is referred to as ‘The winter line’. The winter line is a phenomenon unique to Mussoorie and parts of Switzerland, caused by the refraction of sunlight at a particular angle, and visible from mountain areas with a long, clear view of a valley towards the west. From mid-October till January, with the setting sun, the western horizon becomes replete with myriad shades of yellow, red, orange, purple and mauve. The sun drops behind what is essentially a false horizon, a grey and mauve coloured strip, and there is a bright line of yellow and orange colours at the upper end of this strip. The colours are so spectacular that onlookers are left spellbound till the sun finally sets.

To boost tourism and beauty of queen of hills Uttarakhand Govt. is organizing yet another year Mussoorie Winter Line Carnival. The joyous & enthusiastic fest to begin from 25th Dec – 30th Dec till the arrival of the new year. Many events which includes music, dance, art, culture, sports, adventure and other competitions are again ready to mesmerize guests.
