Kempty Falls - Review

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.

Kempty Falls, Mussoorie Reviews

  • Nice place I loved this place I spend wonderful time here. Enjoyed lot with friends. Best place for summer vacation with family and friends. Nice waterfall beautiful place Nice trip experience. Very cold water in waterfall. Overall value for money. I suggest to go once here for vacation.

  • This is a well known location. Lots of tourists enjoying there. But ambience is quite shabby. It was. Rainy season and that added to it. Although various private shops for changing clothes before and after swim in the falls were available at a nominal cost, there was no area where a person could change clothes which he brought privately. It appears that private shops have completely taken over the area. To be fair, nobody forced us and I helped my son change clothes in the common area which was just the area surrounding the artificial pool. Authorities could address this issue. Also the surroundings need to be spruced up.... Broken tiles, orderly movement and all.

  • Good place. 100 rs entry ticket which includes paddle boating, swimming in man made pool. There are water falls at two locations. At one location water falls from small height approximately 25 feet, pond created by it is small and there is less crowd. At other location water falls from great height approximately 50-60 feet, pond created by it is large and there is more crowd. But a family and couples friendly environment prevails. There are also other things to do like mountain climbing, zip lining, etc. Parking is free. Go in early morning hours and reach there about 10 am if you want to avoid traffic jams on the road. If you go late a lot of traffic on roads especially in the season. Parking is free. There is also a good restaurant inside to eat there. You can spend whole day there.

  • Perfect place to spend summer vacation with family or friends, heavenly relief from scorching heat, number of small shops are there for swimming costumes on very cheap price (Rs 50 to 100) & also safes available to keep your clothes & wallets / mobiles & other valuables. All type of foods are available (but overpriced). Whole route to kempty fall is scenic & full of natural beauty. Cloudy environment & pleasant weather will be surely impress you & give you heavenly feeling. Overall full value for money destination.

  • Very good place (water Fall)... Food is also very delicious... You can spend 4-5 hrs easily on weekends crowd is more as compare to weekdays. Must visit place in a life time... Enjoy beauty of nature
