Kempty Fall Best Time to Visit

I live in Dehradun for many years, so aware of the environment of Dehradun and nearby cities. That's why I planned to travel the Kempty Fall in the month of May. The best time to visit the Kempty Fall starts from March and ends in June. From March the summer starts and from June the rainy season starts. Between these two seasons, you can plan to travel the Mussoorie and nearby areas.

Kempty Falls Ropeway Ticket Price

When I visited Kempty Fall, the charge of Ropeway was Rs. 100/- for one way. There was a long line of waiting peoples for their turn in Ropeway. The way to go to Kempty Fall from the main road is similar to Laxman Jhula's way in Rishikesh.

If you want to go Kempty Fall you have to go Mussoorie and for reaching to Mussoorie you have to come to Dehradun first. The Kempty Fall is approximately 16 km away from Mussoorie and about 46 km from the Dehradun.

You can get easily a private cab or taxi from the Dehradun and Mussoorie. There are government buses also near Dehradun railway station. You will reach by Mussoorie by government bus then thereafter you have to take the private bus for Kempty Fall. We first went to Mussoorie by the government bus then went to Kempty Fall by private bus.

My personal views on Kempty Fall

Kempty waterfall is over-commercialized and congested. It will be best for one time visit during traveling the Mussoorie. I don't think it is a good idea for going especially to Kempty Fall for travel. If you are living in Dehradun or in Mussoorie you can go there easily but if you come from outside or nearby cities then you can avoid it and can go to other tourist places in Dehradun.
