George Everest peak in Mussoorie

1 22553

Sir George Everest’s House and Laboratory, also known as the Park Estate, is situated about 6 kilometres (4 mi) from Gandhi Chowk / Library Bazaar, (West end of the Mall Road, in Mussoorie). Built in 1832 it was the home and laboratory of Sir George Everest. The house is situated in a place from where one can experience the panoramic view of Doon Valley on one side and a panoramic view of the Aglar River valley and the snowbound Himalayan ranges on the other.

The peak is about 0.5 km from Sir George Everest house. It takes about 20 -25 minutes the reach the summet and the route is easy.
The best way to know about the place is to visit in every season because that helps you to understand the beauty of the peak or it allows to make a better connection with the place.
To take the following pictures I started my journey at 4 am from Dehradun and reached George Everest at 5:15 am.

I love taking sunrise pics and as a photographer I was eager to witness it from George Everest peak. The idea behind going so early in the morning was to show people that how dramatic a place can be when you visit it at different times.

George Everest’s house in Mussoorie

Built in 1832, the house is known today as Sir George Everest’s House and Laboratory, or Park House. Recent new fencing, tree planting and the construction of a ticket booth (as of late 2015) indicate that at some point it will cost to enter the property. The inside has signs of renovation several years ago, such as ceramic floor tiles in the kitchen and electrical switch boxes. Conservation architects at the Indian National Trust are vying for this project. The house is secured by steel grills and cannot be entered. Now that this property is better known and the access road has been improved, the walls are covered with graffiti and then periodically whitewashed clean.
