After sightseers spurned Covid standards at Mussoorie’s Kempty Falls, the Uttarakhand government on Friday declared that only 50 guests will be permitted at the waterfalls and they can not remain there past thirty minutes.
The district administration made this step after photographs of many tourists bathing together in the waterfalls became a web sensation via online media.
“Now only 50 tourists are allowed at Kempty Falls (waterfall) in Mussoorie, can’t stay at the spot more than half an hour” said Iva Ashish Srivastava, Tehri Garhwal District Magistrate.
Also District Magistrate has received many complaints about tourists not following the Covid-19 Guidelines while bathing in the waterfall.
The DM further said that the tourists should leave the waterfalls when the hooter rings and furthermore asked senior superintendent of police (SSP) and sub-divisional magistrate (SDM) to set up a check post and screen the vacationers around kempty.
