Mossy Waterfalls journey, will take your breath away, both figuratively and literally. Nestled cozily amidst the mountains and woods.
Mossy Falls got its name from the mossy rocks surrounding the gushing waterfalls. It’s a well-kept secret of the hill town, situated about 7 km away from the main city on the Bala Hisar Road. To reach this mesmerizing cascade, you’ll have to embark on a little bushwhack and follow slightly rough terrain. But trust us, it’s totally worth it!
Once you’re there, you’ll be greeted by the absolute euphoria of the sight. The waterfall is literally veiled from view, with a cleft in the hillside, creating a surreal site. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s a Shivalinga hidden near the fall, which is drenched by the continuously flowing water, adding to the charm of this place.
But that’s not all – the scenic Lake Mossy is a hotspot for trekkers, with trails offering moderate to difficult hikes for the adventurous. For those who love photography, it’s a go-to place, with minimal human interactions and rich scenery. And if you’re someone who’s looking for a quiet picnic in the lap of nature, then you’ll love it here.
The trail of outpour can be divided into 6 tiers with variations in gradients and water rush, a total of 145 feet in height. The top three slides can be seen from afar, and the bottom two can only be seen from the baseline. To witness this majestic beauty in all its grandeur, you can choose your trek and climb up. And while you’re there, take a moment to admire the beauty in all its niches and lapses.
Apart from trekking, Mossy Falls provides several panoramic sights for your Instagram feeds. And if you’re in the mood for a clichéd holiday, pack a bedsheet and a basket of food and enjoy a meal next to the ravishing showers.
But before you head out, remember to keep a few things in mind. First, carry an extra set of clothes in case of a voluntary or accidental dip in the water. Second, avoid visiting in the peak monsoon season due to the overflow of water. And lastly, try and visit during the day and be back before sunset because the winding roads can get trippy and dangerous in the dark.
