7. Tegenungan Waterfall

Tegenungan is the most visited waterfall in Bali as it’s located only 30 minutes drive from Ubud. The steps to the waterfall are also very friendly for the calves. If you prefer to be basking in the lovely sun and weather, there are local cafes before the entrance where you can see the view of the waterfall from afar. We suggest coming to this spot before 7 AM to avoid the other crowd. Enjoy the picturesque

6. Jagasatru Waterfall

Turn on your GPS, follow it through, this spot is well marked and hard to miss. It’s a bit of a narrow trail toward the end so if you’re not confident on a scooter you can walk the last couple of hundred metres to the ‘setting off’ point, where you’ll meet the smiling and helpful locals who seem genuinely pleased to meet you and grateful that you’ve come to visit their little corner of the world.

From there it’s down about 100-150 steep but very manageable steps to the waterfall itself. The surroundings are lush and green, and there’s a wonderful feeling of peace and tranquillity to the place. The water is chilly but very bathe-able, and it makes for great photographs for your Instagram feed!

There is no entrance fee per se but they do ask for donations, 10-20,000 rupiah per person should be sufficient. You can pay more if you feel like contributing to the local community keeping the area clean and green.

5. Gitgit Waterfall

Walk around and enjoy the view, also the nature sounds from the waterfall for at least 1 hour. The local offer many activities for tourists, one of them is a swing to take photos with. The ticket is usually around AU$2 per person. You can buy them at the ticket booth on the way to the waterfall.

This waterfall is located near the Bedugul area. The access to the waterfall is relatively easy, 750m with few steps and some flat pathways. The area is still clean and the water is still clear. We suggest visiting this place in the morning to avoid the crowd. Git git is a beautiful waterfall surrounded by lush jungle and has lots of good spots for taking photos, it’s a spectacular tourists’ spot.

There are local stallholders along the pathway will try to sell you their wares, but they are not pushy and take “no thank you” for an answer. Pro tip: take an umbrella just in case of a downpour – a frequent occurrence in the mountains. Go explore!

4. Kuning Waterfall

This is one of Bali’s best-kept secret. Not many people know about this gem. Which is really cool, you could come to this spot and have the waterfall all for yourself. The hikes down and up are a bit steep but doable. Be sure to wear good shoes. The waterfall itself is amazing and perfect to swim in. Be careful of the stream to the river, lots of undertows. The restaurant at the top is also a big bonus: good food, cheap and an awesome view over the rice paddies. And the swing is much cheaper as Bali swing (50k). Absolutely recommend it.

Sometimes you need to get lost to explore hidden places. Really beautiful waterfall. We walked through a stunning landscape to get there. No tourism.

3. Aling-Aling Waterfall

We just have the trip here for the first time! And we so amazed with the waterfall. I love how people can jump safely and slide safely into the waterfall. And the local guide so helpful we pay like $10 for the help of local guide! Everyone should go here! Easy access to the waterfall

125k IDR per person for the short tour (1.5-2 hours) — totally worth the guide if it’s your first time there. We had Ketut and he was lovely. Provided us with water and went out of his way to ensure we had a good experience.

Make sure you try the slide and jump! I’m terrified of water but gave it a go and didn’t regret it. Life jackets are provided.

2. Sekumpul Waterfall

Pictures can’t describe the magnitude of these waterfalls and the surrounding area. Go all the way using maps to avoid “registration” traps.

This is a must-see experience. The hike is not to difficult and the views of the falls are just awesome. I would suggest maybe bringing some water shoes as you will need to walk through some shallow sections of water, and if you happen to have a hard time walking barefoot across rocks, they will come in handy. Definitely take the time to go swim in the water, although it is cold, it is worth it.

1. Banyumala Twin Waterfalls

We’ve had a very good experience here. The walk down is very easy and beautiful. The waterfalls are super pretty. You can swim and go on the swing or take the jump. The people who work here are very friendly and we had a great laugh with them

It’s an almost hidden treasure and thankfully still unspoilt by overcrowding. Part of the reason is the long trek down a steep hill that takes you to the waterfall itself. If you are dressed as a Diva in high heels and short dresses, please take them off and get some pants on because its, not a catwalk down the hill. ( I say this because that’s exactly what I saw a couple of young ladies wearing, while they were struggling their way down)

Wear your sneakers, whichever ones have a good grip on the ground.

Now locating the place by memory might be a bit difficult for your driver, and even if that’s the case, it’s pretty easy to find it on Google maps. You need to pay a small entry fee to get there, but that’s like most of the attractions in Bali.

If you think the trek downwards was treacherous, you might want to give some thought to getting back up once you’re done. ( But that’s a worry for later) If I could do it, then anyone can, except for much older people who may find it arduous and those with health issues which limit their movement and physical activities.

Having said that, the sound of the waterfall keeps you distracted and brings you closer like a moth to a flame. Once you are there, take off your shoes, change into your swimming shorts (there’s a changing room in the vicinity), and take a dip. The water is clean (albeit a bit cold) and refreshing to bathe in (please no soap!). There’s a clean toilet too, in case you feel like pissing your pants thinking about your journey back up.

You’d come across a few people along the way, but it should not be too crowded during the earlier part of the day.

Oh, and carry a bottle of drinking water with you. You’ll need it.
