Situated at a height of almost 4,500 ft from the sea level, the Kempty Falls are one of the most scenic attractions in Mussoorie. The waterfall has a height of 40 ft. and the sight of frosty water falling down the mountainside is quite mesmerising.
The curious name of this waterfall is derived from the words ‘camp-tea’, which was popularised by British tea parties here during the colonial era. The falls are also a popular swimming and fishing destination in Mussoorie.
A place made famous by a pre-independence ritual of firing a gun to give locals an idea of the time, the Gun Hill is a tourist hotspot in Mussoorie. The Gun Hill is situated 400 ft. above the Mall and can be reached via a ropeway. The hill proper offers a panoramic view of the Himalayas and Mussoorie town.
Lal Tibba is the highest point in Mussoorie and offers a panoramic view of the town and its surroundings. The place is famous for a Japanese telescope which was placed here in 1967. One can view Badrinath, Kedarnath, Banderpunch and other Himalyan ranges from this telescope.
Lal Tibba is also called Depot Hill due to the presence of a military depot here in earlier times.
It is a location about 6 kilometres west of the Mussoorie Library. Cloud’s End lies at the ends of Mussoorie’s boundaries and offers mesmerising views of the valley.

Also known as the Company Bagh, its colonial era name, the Municipal garden is situated in the Happy Valley. It is an expanse of natural landscape moulded into a scenic beauty with human expertise. The garden is also called the Botanical Garden, due to the diverse plant species present here.
