Mussoorie - Kempty Falls

Mussoorie is a beautiful hill station nestled in the Himalayas within motorable distance from Delhi. It provides a great respite from the Delhi heat. Read more about it over here. Of course, having all these advantages means that it is also very popular and there are a large number of people who head there. It can get fairly crowded in summer, but there are plenty of hotels and Mussoorie does depend to a large extent on the tourist trade, so space should be found with some advance booking. And unless you are totally averse to crowds, you can still enjoy the nice weather. After all, if a place is good, it is bound to be found and become popular.
Some more snaps can be found at this link (this is an external link not under my control).
The photograph at the top of this post is of a place called Kempty falls. This is a water fall with different sections, but the most popular one has become extremely tourist stricken, and is fairly crowded during the season. I had heard a lot about these falls, so had to make the trip, but there is a fair amount of crowd in this place. It is located around 1-2 hours drive from Mussoorie. The drive is fairly nice, but those who have a problem with heights might find this route interesting, and might want to busy themselves with either a book or some other distraction during the trip.

Hey, you seem to have visited a lot of nice places in India. I should make it a point to travel as well once I am back.
