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 to visit. If you want to fully enjoy it reach by 11:00 A.M . You can spend 2-3 hr in fall. If interested in adventure games that is also there. Seasonal fruits available at reasonable rate. If want some snacks then need to adjust with Maggi. As it's only eatable snacks. The management of UK govt is very poor. Especially no proper signage on Roads.

  • Magnificent tourist attraction. Has multiple naturally formed pools to enjoy in. Swimming dresses are available at multiple shops dotted along the pools at nominal prices. You can also take a short hike alongside the stream which takes you to some magnificent naturally formed waterworks. Cable cars are available to take you to the pool formed by a 50-feet dropping waterfall. Food joints present nearby.

  • Kempty Fall is good place to visit. You can hire clothes for enjoying the water. If you coming with a Mini bus you may have to take a taxi from parking upto stairs,which may charge you appropriately 200 rs. There Approximately 500 steps but you can go by rope way, the charge is around 150 round trip. There is restaurant near the fall so you don't have to carry food and water bottles. Do not buy any articles as they are costly as compared to local market.

  • Nice waterfalls. But an example for mismanagement of natural resource. Resorts and recreational activities are overdone which overshadows natural beauty. Falls is divided into 2 parts by road. Upper part can be accessed by walk. Lower part Can be reached to bottom of falls by rope way or walk. Here pools have been constructed. Swim wear, balloons available. Zipper line agency also present.

  • Nice and wonderful place. Don't try boating or rope car. Waste of money. Just roam around and enjoy the weather n scenic beauty. Try the street foods. Enjoy the water bodies. Take good snaps. Will take around 3 hours easily if u enjoy nature. The stretch of rope car is very less. 2/3min . So waste of money. The boating is also a waste bcoz the lake is too small.if u have never done boating ever then only go for it. Else don't waste time in boating but enjoy in sight seeing.
