Kempty Falls, Mussoorie are one of the most beautiful water falls in not only Uttarakhand, rather the whole of India. Enveloped by high mountain cliffs and situated at an altitude of about 4500 feet above the sea level, the falls present an awe-inspiring view as the water falls down from a high altitude and then splits into five streams. The water falling down from Kempty Falls appears to be doing a somersault before it hits the ground. Situated on the Mussoorie-Dehradun Highway, this popular tourist location attracts crowd from all over the country. 

Kempty Falls was developed as a picnic spot by the British officer John Mekinan, around 1835. It is believed that, the name ‘Kempty’ is a derivation of the ‘Camp-Tea’, the tea parties that the British used to organize here. Situated on the hilly pathway of Uttarakhand, Kempty Falls are strikingly beautiful. They prove to be the perfect place for picnic or for spending a couple of hours listening to the sound of the water-falls, amidst lush green vegetation. Generally, Kempty Falls is crowded with tourists, but after stepping across the lines along the flow of the stream, your may found a secluded rocky corral formed naturally by the streams. The sacred river, Yamuna is not too far from the falls. After 12 km, down the hill on crossing the Aglar River, the waters of Kempty meet Yamuna falls.

  • Awesome place... A destination for calm & fresh mind. Greenery and waterfalls(Yes they are many 😅) are main attractions. However the place is also good for trekking. If you are planning for a day trip and night stay at mussoorie, try to pack up before sunset.... Vehicle search could be a 'tough' task in night.

  • There are two ways to get to Kempty fall one is using the cable car and second one is used in the stairs that is created for people who like to enjoy the nature in natural way, we also heard the news that at in the recent rainfall in the country follows remained as a lot of stones fell down and there is nothing to watch still we went to Kempty fall and we found that it is still and good shape and we can enjoy the view Not only one place where the waterfalls there are seven pounds to the waterfalls and give you a scene waterfall you can choose any of them to enjoy your time there

  • You Will have parking, food, cosmetic items etc but the thing was shocking there was that, the place where you will bath will be full of sharp stones or pebble and iron bars also. So be very careful during that period of time.

  • Driving till the destination is fantastic..... It's good place. Nothing is much different from other water falls.... But still I recommend for one time visit.

  • Fantastic place to's fun to have Maggi near the falls especially in the winters...enjoyed to the core. If you like rope way or have elderly people you can use the rope way to get down & return...
