Masuri was founded as Hill Station in 1832 by British adventurer Captain Young and is now a popular destination for middle-class Indians who want to escape the heat of the plains. It offers tourists a promenade ( The Mall ), a cable car with which one can go to Gun Hill , which is close to the center , as well as numerous amusement stalls and souvenir shops. But the main attraction is the view of the forests and peaks of the central Himalayas . In and around Masuri numerous schools with boarding schools have been founded by western missionaries. The Landour Language School offers Hindi courses that primarily attract Western foreigners.
