By far, Kempty Falls is the star attraction of the hill station of Mussoorie. This site was developed as a leisure destination by John Mekinan, a British officer, in the year 1835. The falls derived its name from Camp-Tea- a place where the British arranged tea parties. This perennial waterfall, set amid high mountain ranges, is perched above 4500 ft above sea level.

Among the largest cascades in the state, the Kempty Falls emerge from the mountains and flows down the plains. From bathing in the shallow waters of the falls to fishing and swimming, there are ample activities for visitors to indulge in. If you don't seek adventure, enjoy a picnic or simply spend a couple of hours listening to sound of gushing waters.
