Kempty Falls - Mussoorie, Uttranchal Kempty Falls, located 15 kms from Mussoorie are the biggest attraction of the place. With water cascading down from an altitude of 4,500 feet and splitting further into five cascades, Kempty Falls offers a panoramic view.

This place was developed as a tourist destination by John Mekinan, after 1835. The name Kempty is probably derived from 'camp-tea', as the Britishers would organise their tea parties here. At Kempty, the water falls from a height of 40 feet giving the appearance of water jumping and playing on the rocks before falling down.

Past Kempty Fall, 12-km downhill, on crossing the Aglar River, one reaches the legendary Yamuna River. Trout are in abundance here, and fishing permits can be obtained form the Divisional Forest Officer, Mussoorie.

Kempty is located on the road to Chakrata and can be reached by a taxi or bus. There are arrangements for accommodation in the huts.
