Mossy Falls, a beautiful waterfall, surrounded with dense and dark forests is located at a distance of around 7 km from Mussoorie. Travellers can reach there by the route that goes through Balahisar or Barlowganj.
Cosily tucked amidst the tantalizing mountains and the exuberant woods, Mossy Falls is a well-kept secret of the hill town of Mussoorie. Located at a distance of 7 kms from the main city on the Bala Hisar Road, Mossy Falls is named after the moss-laden rocks surrounding the gushing waterfalls. The mesmerising cascade offers a sight of absolute euphoria as it is hidden away from the conventional chaos and din of the city. Literally veiled from view, with a cleft in the hillside, this charming masterpiece of natural wonder can be reached with a little bushwhack following a slightly rough terrain.
It is a hot-spot for trekkers as the trail offers moderate to difficult hikes for the tourists to choose from. In addition to that, it is the go-to place for the photography enthusiasts owing to its rich scenery and minimal human interactions. It is also a favourite amongst the occasional visitors looking for a quiet picnic in the lap of nature. All in all, the ataraxy and poise of the place mixed with the occasional chirping of birds and melodious chiming of trees amidst roaring waters is bound to give you a much needed rejuvenating break from your routine.
