Driving Direction from Delhi to Mussoorie

Distance: 265 km
Driving Time: 8.00 hours

When driving from Delhi to Dehradun, start early in the morning as the traffic builds up on this route and the journey can take you up to 9 hours! To drive out of Delhi, head southeast towards NH 24; crossing the Nizamuddin Bridge, turn left and take the Ghazipur road.
Continue driving on NH 24 as you cross the Dabur Chowk and head towards Mohan Nagar till you reach a T point.
From here, take a right and then turn left from Ghaziabad border traffic light to get on to NH 58 – tank up at the petrol pump here.
On NH 58, drive past Muradnagar (10 km stretch); cross Modi Nagar, and when approaching Meerut, remember to take a left on to the Meerut Bypass, thereby avoiding the heavy traffic in the city.
Continue towards Modipuram and Khatauli – by now you must be hungry, so make a small detour to Cheetal Grand, located between NH 58 and Khatauli, for a sumptuous breakfast and to freshen up.
If you need to refuel your car, there’s a petrol pump here, and just in case you overlooked Cheetal Grand, you still have an alternative of stopping by at Haldiram’s or Mc Donald’s in Khatauli.
After filling your stomach and fuelling your car, start moving ahead towards Muzaffarnagar, a 52 km stretch on NH 58 – Muzzaffarnagar is the sugar belt of the state and the unpleasant smell of molasses hits you as you approach.
Do remember to take a right from the roundabout just before the town, to get onto Muzaffarnagar bypass – even though this is a little longer route, it is worth the extra miles as the traffic within the town is very heavy.
There is also a big petrol pump here and if you need to top up your car, this is the place to do so.
Exit the bypass and head onto the Saharanpur Road towards Saharanpur and carry on till you pass Roorkee and hit the Shivalik hills.
Turn left on NH 73 i.
Dehradun road, that now ascends through the verdant Rajaji National Park and towards Dehradun.
As you reach Dehradun, take a break at Nirula’s or Mc Donald’s at Astley Hall, or savour Mughlai food at My Wife’s Place, or if it’s just a pizza you want to stop of at Dominoes or Pizza Hut, all located on Rajpur Road.
Quite a lot of banks and ATMs are available on this road, apart from few petrol pumps, in case you need to withdraw any cash and top up your car tank.
Just before Rajpur village there is a marked turning to the left that leads to the Mussoorie Road, which ascends all the way up to Mussoorie with sharp turns, so be watchful.
Although Mussoorie is merely 36 km away from Dehra Dun, an uphill drive will take you about an hour or perhaps a little more depending on the traffic.
At the top depending on which side of the Mall you want to park, take a right towards Picture Palace or a left to Library.
