Tendulkar had spent a few days in Mussoorie last year also after announcing his retirement from the ODI cricket. The master blaster used to visit this hill station along with his family to celebrate Christmas and the New Year.
Tendulkar brought the curtains down on his glittering career after playing his final and 200th Test last week against the West Indies.
He bowed out as the most successful batsman in international cricket with 15,921 runs in 200 Tests.
In his ODI career, the Mumbaikar amassed 18,426 runs in 463 matches. Tendulkar is the only batsman in international cricket to score 100 centuries.
He was the first batsman to get a double hundred in one-dayers.
