Located in the town of Massoorie, spanning 15 km from the mains, the Kempty Falls in Uttarakhand are a marvelous place to be. The falls are situated at an altitude of around 4,500 feet from the level of the sea. The place has become a famous tourist spot in previous few decades and the credit goes to Mr. John Mekinan, who developed and introduced this site as a tourist and picnic spot for visitors from outside Massoorie, in 1835. The name Kempty Falls has been derived from the term Camp Tea, pertaining to the act of British men of organizing their tea parties in this open place.
The Kempty Falls in Uttarakhand are the biggest attraction for tourists in the city of Massoorie. Waters here cascade and plunge down from an altitude as high as almost 5,000 feet and the chasms are further gashed into five more cascades. This division offers a magnificent vista. Moreover, the water that falls down, sometimes meets the rocks on its way,40 feet before falling. It seems as if the cascades are playing and jumping on the rocks before kissing the pond, at the foot of the hill, into which they fall.
There is an Aglar River 12 km down the hill from the Kempty Falls in Uttarakhand. Crossing this river, one can reach the Yamuna River, a house of legendary secrets and stories. There is abundant trout fish found here in the Yamuna. One can obtain permits for fishing here, from the Divisional Forest Officer of Massoorie.
