If you stay in Delhi NCR, you may already have vacation plans for Mussoorie. The quaint hill station has been witnessing heavy traffic and congestion despite the fears of the Delta variant. In fact, the local administration has been having a tough time controlling the crowd and the resorts and hotels have been running houseful. This has led to a surge in COVID-19 cases in the city. The government has, therefore, decided to put a cap on the number of visitors on weekends. So if you have an extended weekend plan, you will have to cut it short.

RT-PCR Test Report Mandatory To Visit Mussoorie

Besides, the COVID-19 curfew is being extended in Dehradun until 21 September 2021. Everyone’s favourite hill station Mussoorie will be open only on the weekend, with a cap of 15,000 visitors during this period. However, if you are still planning to visit Mussoorie, be sure to undergo an RT-PCR test no longer than 72 hours before your travel. Tourists must submit a negative COVID-19 test report during entry to the hill station.

Waterfalls, Rivers & Ponds Will Remain Shut For Tourists

Apart from these restricted timelines, the rivers, ponds, and waterfalls will also remain shut in Guchupani, Sahastradhara, and Mussoorie for tourists. The COVID-19 protocols like social distancing and wearing a mask will be in place. The restaurants and stores have also been instructed to nor entertain tourists who aren’t wearing face masks.

So, if Mussoorie is in the pipeline, make sure to get in early on the weekend with valid test reports on hand.
