About George Everest,
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 to reach the summit 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.
Mussoorie is a hill station and a municipal board in the
Dehradun District of the northern Indian state of Uttarakhand. It is about 35 km from the state capital of Dehradun and 290 km north of the national capital of New Delhi.
Tempted by the exceptional beauty of the hills of MUSSOORIE, Lt. Frederick Young of East India Company had decided to build a hunting lodge on the Camel’s Back Road along with F.J. Shore, the Magistrate of Doon in 1823. Frederick also formulated the first Gurkha Regiment at Mussoorie and did potato farming, for the first time in the valley.
In 1832, Mussoorie became the ground of the Great Trigonometric Survey of India, which began at the southern tip of India. George Everest, then Surveyor-General of India, after which the Mount Everest has been named wanted to establish the new office of Survey of India at Mussoorie. But his wish was declined and it was set up in Dehradun.
During the chaos of 1959 Tibetan Rebellion, the Central Tibetan Administration of the 14th Dalai Lama was first established in Mussoorie, whose present location is in Dharamshala, Himachal Pradesh. In 1960, the first Tibetan School was established in Mussoorie and the Happy Valley became the home of many Tibetans.
