    Nice and rejuvenating
    We were on a holiday trip to Mussoorie, popularly known as the queen of hills in India. Kempty falls is at a distance of about 12 kms from Gandhi Chowk, Mall Road.Nice place for taking a dip in the pools of the waterfalls. Ideal to visit in Summer months. Several shops and kiosks offer change rooms and refreshments nearby.Needs renovation and provide steps with safe hand rails for the tourists.

    Pretty falls!
    The falls itself is very pretty and the water appeared white and clear(just like you might have seen in some pictures). You can either walk or take a cable car ride to see the waterfall. You will see hundreds of people getting into the water and having fun. There are a few lookouts to to enjoy the waterfall and take pictures. Kempty Falls was only 5 kilometers from our hotel JW Marriott but I guess is a good 45-60mins. drive in a car from Mussoorie(depending on the traffic). Stop littering and save this wonderful spot for others to enjoy as well. The city has a task cut out for them to take action and tidy up this place which I believe is one of the attraction in Mussoorie!

    Kempty Falls - small yet good place to spend time
    Kempty Falls has a ropeway / cable car as well as steps to go to the place. Ropeway was nice 3-4 minute affair and water in October was quite good. IT was a bit chilly and not many ventured in water. The overall experience was quite decent.

    Kempty Commercial water Fall
    The area of Kempty falls is polluted by the stalls and shops. People have murder the natural falls. Now it looks like water is falling inside a pond or pool. Shops are constricted very close to the water body. Lots of thrash and plastic bottles are floating. Being a waterfall lover was felling very sad to see the commercial Kempty falls. I think Local authorities should impose some guide lines and people should come forward to save the Kempty waterfall.

    Beautiful and cool
    Beautiful and cool shops recommend getting there before 3pm so you have enough time for the gondola which closes at 5pm. Cool shops bit pricey but looks cool. Fun games and food. If you take kids keep them close as there are alot of monkeys and they snatch stuff but they got really close to my daughter bit scary.

Very untidy and full of tourists of different taste. Don't know why there is a hype for this place. One time visit for some time.

One of the highlights of Kempty Waterfall is the pool at the base, where visitors can take a dip in the crystal-clear waters. The chilly temperature of the water is invigorating, and the experience of swimming beneath the waterfall is both thrilling and rejuvenating.

The surrounding landscape adds to the charm of Kempty Waterfall. Lush greenery colorful wildflowers, and the distant hills create a postcard-perfect setting. There are also vendors selling local snacks and refreshments, allowing visitors to indulge in some local flavors while enjoying the natural beauty.

Do I have to give it 1 star? It is awful. Do not waste time going here. It is long road and absolutely not worth it. I am appalled by the scenes at this waterfall. The unauthorised construction, the hawkers and the tourists bathing in unhygienic waters. I do not understand why there is no action taken by authorities to stop all this at a beautiful creation of Mother Nature. Why can’t people just come to the falls, click few photos and leave??? Why there needs to be Maggi points surrounding the falls.
Please do not go here. Do not waste your time. Someone has written a true review here that it is a perfect murder of Mother nature.

I cant even say how shell-shocked I am! I visited Kempty Falls after 30 years. I remembered it as a lush green, high Falls that comes down in 3 stages, surrounded by lush green forests. An absolute delight for a nature lover. They have completely, utterly, infuriatingly destroyed everything, EVERYTHING, including the natural pool at the bottom itself. All you see are ugly shops and human greed for money. Nothing else. Its a disaster! Don't waste time going there if you are a nature lover. Gave it a 1/5 stars, because there's no option of 0.

There are 298 steps to go down to the pool, or to climb up to the road, btw. We were so disappointed, we actually counted in our way up, to keep the mind busy. That's like climbing up 15 floors by the stairs. Waste your energy at your own peril. 🙂

Kempty falls is an hour away from the main city and it is full of locals.It is beautiful and scenic but can give it a miss if one has visited waterfalls before.

The waterfall is beautiful & very cooling on a warm day. But the cleanliness is very bad. Litter is found everywhere. The guys running the place do not bother to maintain it and they themselves contribute to the litter. Pampers can be found in the pool. Sadly some even bathe and take sips from the water. The Himdola (Kempty Fall Ropeways) seems risky, but is actually safe.
