Kempty Falls Overview

Ranked 2 of 31 sightseeing in Mussoorie

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.

The best ever place of Mussoorie.

Simply awesome place to visit. You will find yourself connected with the nature. The water fall attracts a lot. Weather will prevent you to make a jump into the lake but as the step goes into the water you won't come out till totally exhausted.

Forget shower, kempty is amazing

its a perennial fall with lot of water even in summers.One has to climb stairs to reach the top layer,where actuall water fall is,but its worth climbing.Do carry your extra pair of clothes and towel as there are shops that provide clothes,however how clean it is I doubt????One must experience relaxing time under the waterfall or just sitting around watching the beauty of the nature.

I visit this in the morning. It is good to go there in morning to avoid crowd. Location was good. You can enjoy the waterfall by taking bath under it. you can take clothes on rent there also. 50 rupees they will charge of gents underwear. overall it's a must visit place. You can hire cab from library chowk or you can take bus from there also. Bus will take rupees 250/per head to visit 3 places.
