About Kempty Falls (Water Fall)

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.

Kempty Falls is situated at an altitude of 4500 feet. It offers a remarkable view as the water dropping from a height of about 50 feet flowing through five cascading falls. Amazing.

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"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Apr 23, 2017
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.

"Awesome"

  • 5.5/7
  • Posted Mar 5, 2017
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.

Kempty Falls is about 50 kms from the city of Dehradun. The Mussuorie city which is situated on the hills is about 35 kms ahead of Dehradun. Uttarakhand State buses ply between Dehradun and Mussourie every day starting approx 6 AM in the morning.
It takes about 1. 5 hour to travel to Kempty Falls from Dehradun city.
For budget travel one can board a travel by boarding state bus. However one can hire a taxi (Transport cost Rs. 17/KM on plane roads and on hilly roads Rs. 18/KM). Approx. Cost Rs. 2500 for a whole day trip to Mussourie.
Places to cover in a whole day journey for Mussourie are
Kempty Falls
The Mall Road
Mussourie Lake
Prakaseshwar Shiva Temple (This is a private Trust they don't accept any kind of donation in cash or kind plus they offer free Prasad and Tea to all travellers who offer a visit on the way to Mussourie)
Malshi Deer Park
It can take around 7 hours to cover these points in a day trip. On the way to return you can also pay visit to the Sakya Buddha Temple, Sai Temple and Ramakrishna Temple on the Rajpur Road.
Happy Holidaying!
