  • The trip was fabulous. Shimla is an amazing place with lots to see and do. Our tour operator was excellent. All of their suggestions and recommendations were solid. We loved our hotel and the location. All the tours were high-quality and we experienced no difficulties with pickups. Mr. Nitin was extremely pleasant to work with and truly wanted us to have a fabulous time.

  • We cannot recommend this travel company enough! My husband and I had been wanting to go to India for quite some time but had not done so due to lack of time to plan a worthwhile trip. Booking with this company was exactly what we needed--we told them the types of places and sites we wanted to see and they took care of the rest.

  • I got exactly the vacation I wanted for almost no work and probably cheaper than I could have done it myself. I told this travel company what I wanted and they just did the rest. The hotels and tours/activities were great! Couldn't have asked for more. Great service too they were very responsive and helpful!

KEMPTY FALL

The scenic Kempty Falls are situated on the hilly tracks of Uttarakhand, India, 15 km from Mussoorie on the Chakrata Road. This place is located nearly 1364 meters above sea level, at 78°-02’East longitude and 30° -29North latitude. The Kempty Falls, surrounded by high mountain ranges at an altitude of 4500 feet, are a good place for a picnic or for spending a couple of hours listening to the music of water in the midst of the surrounding greenery.

Kempty Falls were developed as a tourist destination by a British officer John Mekinan, around 1835. The name Kempty is probably derived from the word 'camp-tea', as the British, during the colonial rule, would organize their tea parties here. A stream of water running throughout the year starting from the southwest of village Banglow ki kandi moves northwest and falls from 4,500 ft. Splitting into five other cascades, the water falls a further 40 ft giving the appearance of water leaping on the rocks below. At Kempty, the water almost appears as if the streams are doing a somersault before they hit the bottom. Yamuna is not far from the Kempty when one travels past it some 12 km downhill on crossing the Aglar River. Trout are in abundance here, and fishing permits can be obtained form the Divisional Forest Officer, Mussoorie. For those seeking to visit the gigantic falls for more than just a quick trip, there are arrangements for accommodation in huts in the area around Kempty. The falls can be visited round the year except in rainy season starting from the months of July and August.
