Falls The most popular and a must see destination around Mussoorie are
the Kempty Falls. Situated about 15 km from Mussoorie on the Yamunotri
route the place is home to lovely falls where one can even have a nice
cool dip at the base of the falls. The place gets quiet crowded during
season months of May and June. They are going to put a trolly soon to
reach the base of the falls from top.

Dhanolti About 25 km from
Mussoorie, this hill station still in it's developing stage and therefore
and unspoilt and beautiful. No markets, no concrete only tall pine trees ,
green meadows and fruit orchards greet you as you reach this scenically
perfect destination. You also have picture perfect views of the snow clad
Himalayas on a clear day to keep you company. It makes sense to combine
your stay in Mussoorie with that in Dhanolti. More
