"Lal tibba at height approx 7500 ft is a beautiful place to visit and gives you the lovely view of valley. Although telescope kept there is not of much use. The beauty of valley in the morning hours is magical. You must also visit Landour Bakehouse near lal tibba which is within 2 km range for amazing muffins, crossient, coffee latte and hot choco coffee. Simple amazing experience. A must visit place"

"This place gives the view of entire range of Himalaya if whether is clean. Way from musurie to laal tibba is very beautiful and it gives very good feeling there are two shopes which is providing telescopic view of Himalaya but the shop at your right hand provides good telescope. Enjoy 😊"

"Not so good for a View point, but you can see the Sunset better. 20 Rupees charge per head to go on the top of Restaurant. View of mountain looks good in evening."

"There are 2 buildings that are at the Lal tibba. The one that says New Lal Tibba has a better view...but pathetic binoculars...the coffee is good but tell him not to make it like jaggery !! Come till char dukan (4shops) take a walk till Lal Tibba, see the sunset, take a panoramic shot from top, walk towards the British cemetery, will wind up to sisters bazaar till you circle back to char dukan. Also if u have a Vespa/bike this circular road is an excellent drive "
