One of the major tourist hubs for travellers and a sylvan home for Doonites, George Everest is located about 6 km from Gandhi Chowk/Library Bazaar towards the West end of the Mall road. This mega event by GMVN will start from July 2, 2017. Atul Gupta MD GMVN said, “The winners will be rewarded by Tourism Minister Satpal Maharaj”.
