    You studied in Mussoorie? Lucky guy :D. Which school is it? I was born and brought up in Doon. Waise I heard ki Mussorie mein ek haunted Kabristaan hai jahan boarding school vale raat bitane jaate hain, for dare purposes. Is it true?

    Valley of flowers is in Garwhal region, Tibet border is a stone's throw distance away. Almora is in Kumaon region nearer to Nepal.

    No haunted place in Mussoorie. You can stroll around any time of day and will not feel scared at all.
    If you do not believe me just go there and spend a night.. it's just less than an hour drive from Doon
