Dreamtime in Mussoorie

What made our time extra special while attending the 100th anniversary  WOSA celebrations at Woodstock School in October 2011, was our 5 night stay at Doma’s Inn – a delightful guesthouse on top of Mullingar Hill in Landour, Mussoorie (north India)  – with spectacular views of the Doon Valley and Woodstock School and surrounds. I was enchanted by Doma’s Inn from the moment I arrived.

Managed and owned by  former Woodstock alumni, Doma’s Inn was inspired by the Tibetan heritage of their mother and grandmother – Doma.  Beautiful large ornate  Thangka wall and ceiling paintings, handcrafted by traditional Nepalese Thangka painters, welcome guests as they enter the lobby. Tibetan rugs, cushion covers and other colourful decorum adorn the accommodating rooms. Mod cons like hot water, Wifi, cable TV and heating have not been forgotten with a computer provided  for guests in the upstairs lounge. Let the pictures now speak for themselves.

Besides having the friendliest and most helpful staff on board, we were particularly pleased with the endless cups of Masala Chai supplied with our breakfast every morning. We were also very touched by the white silk prayer shawls the staff draped on our shoulders as we departed, wishing us good luck in our future travels. I will be back for sure!!!
