About Kempty Falls

Kempty Falls, situated at an altitude of 4,500 ft, is one of the popular tourist places of Mussoorie. It is a beautiful waterfall, which falls from a height of about 40 ft from a mountain. This fall is located on way between Dehradun-Mussoorie path.

John Mekinan, in 1835, had developed this place as a tourist destination due to its panoramic surroundings and views. The name of the place is derived from Camp-tea, the place where Britishers organised tea parties during their ruling period.

The falls is one of the largest among five down rushing falls, which flows down through various rocks and finally enters into the plains. While going 12 km downhill and after crossing the Aglar River, tourists can also reach the Yamuna River. Further, the site is also popular for swimming and fishing activities.

The place is visited for taking bath under the falls and for enjoying the beautiful views of surroundings. Tourists can also reach a beautiful pond while climbing a few steps in the flow of the stream. Located at the footsteps of the falls, the pond is a huge enclosure formed naturally by the stream.

Tourists can easily reach the destination by hiring taxis or buses, which regularly operate from Mussoorie as well as Dehradun.

Try to visit upper Kempty fall above the bridge, local will guide, it has more pristine water to experience, best place to shop in Mussoorie is indeed the market(most economical) in narrow lane near the cable car which takes you Kempty fall located down below, but seriously guys, if you are married or with family avoid bath.

"Chilling water of the fall" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
It is wonderful to visit the fall and take a dip to the cold water in such heat in other part of country. Over commercialized is the place as they charge Rs. 100 for the fall but besides the fall nothing there.

John mckinnon has founded this place as a picnic spot for the britishers, they use to organise camp here for tea only. This place is around 13 kilometres from Mussoorie, very beautiful and good to enjoy the bath in the fall.

"Nice place to visit once"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
I like this waterfall but unfortunate the local administrations are not taking care properly hence the place is deteriorating its natural beauty.

Traveller should go by ropeway or by stairs. Although stairs are little exhausting.

"Decent water fall but too overcrowded for my liking"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Kempty fall is most visited place from mussorie. It is nice place to spend some time with family in water fall. But it is too overcrowded and commercialised. Lots of issue right from parking your vehicle to reaching the fall. Good food options there.

"On weekends it is extremely overcrowded"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
If you ever were in Iceland or Norway you will not be impressed by this waterfall, but if you have never been there, you better go in the morning, because after a lunch-time there are huge traffic-jams on the road. Accommodation and restaurants are available there. On weekends it is extremely overcrowded. Go in the morning if don't want to spend hours in traffic-jam.

The kempty falls is one of the main attractions in Mussoorie and it also has quick ropeway service available for Rs. 100 per pax roundtrip. Its windy and chilly here due to flowing waterfalls.
