Kempty Falls

Located at a height of 4,500 ft., the milky water of this waterfall is a pleasant sight for all tourists. Developed by John Mekinan as a camping and tea party destination, the name of the place was also derived from the same idea - Camp-Tea. You can explore the sights, have a refreshing cold shower under the cascading water and have a fun time. Activities like ropeway rides and boating are available nearby. You can also climb the main road to reach the second stage of the waterfall.

Gun Hill View Point

In all its essence, Gun Hill View Point equates to a magical treat to the eyes! The second highest peak in the region, this Mussoorie view point, gets its name from the pre-independence era, where a gun mounted at its top was fired at noon to announce midday. You can witness panoramic views of Doon Valley and the town from this spot. A ropeway ride is also available at this point, which proves to be a true joy ride.
