The last stop of our trip were the Bhatta Falls. Unlike Kempty Falls, this place was not flooded with tourists and is totally worth a visit. We could hear the sound of gushing water from quite a distance. Preparing ourselves to face the Delhi traffic and pollution again, we left the place. The view of that crystal clear water fall is still crystal clear in my mind.
This secluded and serene waterfall is about 10 km before Mussoorie on the Dehradun-Mussoorie road. The first time I went here was in August 2006 with my mum, my best friend and her mum. We took a taxi to reach the bottom of the falls. There were very few people there and we had Maggi and tea at the small shop there. The next time was with my hostel mates. We walked downhill from the main road to reach the bottom and had a wonderful time there. We were 11 girls and went crazy clicking pics and having some water fun. On the way back we got a bit adventurous and decided to take the dirt track going vertically up instead of the standard route. The outcome was a few scratches here n there and a lot of leeches in our feet. Overall we had loads of fun on this adventurous trek.
Apart from these visits I went there thrice again and each time was a unique experience on its own. I fell in love with the place because there was no commercialization and I could thoroughly enjoy nature in peace.
