Description

Although many sources name Laal Tibba, as the highest point of Mussoorie, this nearby peak measured higher according to my GPS. The radio tower and high point are on gated private property. I asked the guard to enter the compound to check the actual elevation (which is higher than where we stood at the gate), but he would have none of it.

So, it seems that there is some confusion as to where the highpoint of this beautiful hill town is. I prefer Laal Tibba even if it is slightly lower than this location since from the tower there are spectacular views of the Himalayas. You don't see that everyday!
