Happy Valley, Mussoorie

Happy Valley is an area situated within the hill station of Mussoorie with majority of Tibetans settled in area in Dehradun district, Uttarakhand, India.

On 18 October 1929 Mahatma Gandhi addressed the European municipal councillors at Mussoorie. At that time he stayed at Birla House in Happy Valley.[1][2][3][4]

One of the landmark events in the history of the Tibetan government in exile in India happened in April 1959 when a young Dalai Lama arrived at Happy Valley.[5][6] In April 1960, he left Happy Valley for another hill town - Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh[7][8] with an entourage of eighty officials of the Tibetan government in exile.[9]

Later, this government-in-exile moved to Dharamshala in Himachal Pradesh leaving behind at Happy Valley, a community of Tibetans who have integrated with the life and culture of Mussoorie, but had built a Buddhist Temple and Tibetan-style homes.[10][11] As of 2016, Happy Valley still was home to about 5000 Tibetan refugees.[12][13]
