Kempty Falls, a picturesque waterfall located at a height of 4500 ft above sea level, is counted among one of the must-visit tourist attractions of Mussoorie. Falling from a mountain, at a height of around 40 ft, it is the biggest among five waterfalls in the Mussoorie Valley. This fall is situated at a distance of around 15 km from the destination on Yamunotri Road. Owing to its panoramic surroundings, a British officer known as John Mekinan developed this spot as a tourist destination in 1835.
The place got its name from Camp-Tea, the destination where Britishers used to have their tea parties. The Kempty Falls enters the plains after flowing through several rocks. From here, travellers can also reach the Yamuna river by going 12 km down and crossing the Aglar river. The place is popular for activities such as fishing and swimming. Regular buses for the Kempty Falls are available from Mussoorie and Dehradun.
