Kempty Falls

Kempty Falls which includes a cascade and swimming as well as a small group of people

Both an exquisite natural landmark and an entertainment center, this stunning waterfall has swimming pools, boating activities and restaurants.

Kempty Falls is a magnificent waterfall and recreation area set in the lap of a green valley. It’s a favorite hangout of local residents, who come to cool off in waterholes, have fun with relaxed boating activities and enjoy scenic picnics. A British officer established Kempty Falls in the 1830s as a place for the British Raj to hold tea parties. The waterfall’s name is rumored to stem from the colloquial name of Camp Tea.

Follow the walkways and bridges that lead from the falls’ entrance to vantage points. Marvel as the milky-white water cascades down a cliff face before bouncing off rocks and into a manmade waterhole. Admire the verdant foliage that frames both sides of the waterfall. Listen to the invigorating sounds of the rushing water, which mingles with the excited cheering of visitors.

On a warm and sunny day you might want to take a refreshing dip in the inviting pool. Inflatable rings are available to rent and present the chance to float lazily on the shallow water. Stand directly beneath one of the branches of the falls to experience its full force. Around the pool, find restaurants serving traditional Indian snacks and a handful of shops selling curios.

A short walk past the main waterhole is a small water park, complete with a collection of terraced pools. Here you can enjoy safe swimming, ride waterslides and rent paddleboats.

Access to the falls is via a short cable-car ride that travels down a forest-covered mountainside. As you move deep into the valley, take time to check out the colorful Tibetan-style homes which sit precariously on the cliffs. An alternative way to get here is to walk down a series of hillside steps.

The waterfall is about a 30-minute drive from Mussoorie’s town center and easily accessible via auto-rickshaws and taxis. Combine your visit with a walk around nearby Happy Valley, a Tibetan community nestled amid a green forest. Visit a Buddhist temple and look inside to see artisan workshops.

Kempty Falls is open daily. There is a fee for the cable car and the attractions at the waterpark.
