How to get to Bali waterfalls

To get to the waterfalls in Bali you have two options: car or motorbike.

As we already had experience driving a motorbike in other countries in Asia, we chose to rent one to be more comfortable. Prices are very affordable, normally around 4€-6€ per day.

If you don't have experience and don't feel comfortable riding a motorbike, you can always take Grab/Gojek (equivalent to Uber in Asia) which also has the option of taking a motorbike.

If you prefer to go more comfortably, we recommend that you hire a private driver or take a tour of the waterfalls in Bali.

Bali Waterfalls

Sekumpul Waterfall

We start this list with our favorite waterfall, the Sekumpul waterfall.

To get here you have several options, the most common is to come by car from Ubud or Munduk, depending on where you are staying. The other option, which is what we chose, is to stay in Sekumpul, near the waterfall.

The main difference is that if you visit this waterfall from Ubud/Munduk or anywhere else, it is mandatory to have a guide.

If you choose to stay in accommodation near the waterfall, you don't need a guide and you also have a discount (we paid 9€ for both) on the ticket to access the waterfall.

The Sekumpul waterfall is the largest of all the waterfalls we have seen, at 80 meters high, the force of this waterfall will make you completely wet when you get close to it. The walk there is a little difficult and in some parts, you have to pass through water, so don't forget to bring suitable footwear.

Along the way, you also have access to the Hidden waterfall, which is also worth visiting and is great for swimming! If you walk a little further you will find the Fiji Waterfall but it costs extra 20k idr.

Our tip: If you think you are not in physical shape to go down to the waterfalls, you can just go to the viewpoint and see the waterfall from above, which is equally magnificent.

Schedule: 8h - 17h

Price: Viewpoint - 20 000 idr ; Mid trail (Sekumpul + Hidden) - 150 000 idr; Long Trail (Sekumpul + Hidden + Fiji) - 250 000 idr

Distance from Ubud center: 2h20

Fiji Waterfall

This waterfall is on the route of the previous waterfalls but has an extra cost.

In fact, the Fiji waterfall is made up of three waterfalls that fall through the rocks and meet when they reach the ground.

Unlike the previous ones, this waterfall has fewer visitors, so it is possible to find it without other people around. We loved it and think it's worth adding this stop when visiting Sekumpul and Hidden Waterfall.

Kanto Lampo Waterfall

30 minutes from the center of Ubud we find the Kanto Lampo waterfall, one of the most Instagrammable waterfalls in Bali…

This waterfall has a unique rock formation behind it that captivates countless people to visit it.

Access to this waterfall is easy and well-marked. You will find various facilities, such as bathrooms, changing rooms, showers, lockers, and even towel sales!

We visited this waterfall at 7:30 am and it was practically empty. We recommend you do the same if you want to avoid crowds. During the day it is a very popular waterfall and there are even queues to take photos…

To take photos, you can climb into the middle of the waterfall or take them from the side, depending on whether you want to get wet or not. Contrary to what we thought, the rocks are not slippery but it is always worth being careful and walking slowly!

At the waterfall, there are always young locals helping with the photos but of course, in the end, you have to give a little compensation for all the effort.

Located just a 15-minute drive from the Kanto Lampo waterfall is the Tibumana waterfall. This waterfall impresses with its straight lines and constant flow.

Access is easy, and when you arrive, you can take a nice dip, as this is one of the best waterfalls for swimming.

A little further from Ubud is the Leke Leke waterfall, but to make up for it, the path to get there is very beautiful surrounded by rice fields.

When we arrived at this waterfall we were greeted with smiles and a welcome drink.

The route to the waterfall is easy and the entire area is very well taken care of, the climb back up is a little harder... But it's not difficult.

This is not the ideal waterfall for diving, and you can even visit it in normal clothes instead of a bathing suit.

It was here that we took one of our favorite photos, which we show you below.

Nung Nung Waterfall

When you visit the Leke Leke waterfall, take advantage and visit the Nung Nung waterfall, which is just 30 minutes away from each other.

This is without a doubt the most difficult waterfall of all the ones we visited, to get there you need to walk a small trail with 509 steps! It’s not that the descent is difficult, what’s difficult is the climb back… Which seems endless!

But, all the effort is, definitely, worth it. The waterfall is one of the highest in Bali with a 50-meter waterfall!

The strength of this waterfall is indescribable and will make you all wet when you get close to it! Bring your bathing suit and go for an unforgettable swim here.

Banyu Wana Amertha Waterfall

The Banyu Wana Amertha waterfall is located in the Munduk region and here you have access to a set of four waterfalls.

To get to the waterfalls you need to follow a well-marked path through nature. The walk is good but if you don't want to walk you have the option of taking a motorbike which takes you down there for 50k, round trip, or just uphill for 30k.

The waterfalls are very beautiful, especially the two that we show you in the photos below, which are truly unforgettable.

They are not ideal for diving, but they are great for taking a walk and spending a morning or afternoon here.

To get to this waterfall, you must use “Swing and Attraction Wanagiri” on Google Maps and leave the motorbike in the indicated location. Then you must walk a path of around 10 minutes to the entrance of the waterfall and buy the ticket there.

The entrance cost 50k (€3) and we were offered a bottle of water and a bracelet made by the local population.

The path to the waterfall is not difficult but, if you go during the rainy season, be careful as it can be slippery.

The waterfall is about 20 meters high and has a great pool for swimming, don't forget to bring your swimwear! The space is very pleasant and has other smaller waterfalls.

Bring a towel and have a picnic here!

Gembleng Waterfall

This waterfall is located in Sidemen, 70 minutes from Ubud.

Unlike all the other waterfalls we visited, this is the only one where you have to climb a staircase to get to the waterfall (all the others we went down first).

The waterfall does not have a set entry fee, you can make a donation that is used to maintain access to the waterfall.

Gembleng Waterfall Pool

This waterfall has a peculiarity, several waterfalls fall successively and each one of them forms small pools. It's great for refreshing!

Access is easy and the waterfall is not very crowded, so we spent a beautiful afternoon there. At the top, there is a cafe with an incredible view of the Sidemen valleys.

Price: Donation  

Difficulty: Easy

Distance from Ubud center: 1h10 min

Tukad Cepung Waerfall

This waterfall differs from the others because it is hidden among the rocks.

It is very visited due to the effect of the sun's rays that fall on it and make the photographs even more incredible. This phenomenon happens around 10 am, so if you don't want to miss these rays of light, we recommend you go around that time.

For this waterfall, we recommend that you bring water shoes or flip-flops because there are some parts where you need to go through water. Also, bring a case to protect your cell phone or photographic material from the water because the waterfall is very strong and leaves our cell phone completely soaked.

What we liked most about our trip to Bali was undoubtedly its nature, and its waterfalls are undoubtedly magnificent. There are many more besides these, but these were the ones we liked the most!

We hope this guide is useful, and if you go to Bali, don't forget to visit these masterpieces of Nature, even if it's just one, you won't regret it.

Stay Connected

If you plan to visit Bali, don't forget that mobile data does not work outside the European Union!

The best solution to stay connected to the Internet is, or buy a local SIM, that was what we did (we bought from Telkomcel), or buy an eSIM. When we used the eSIM, we bought it from Airalo, and it always worked well. Just have a phone compatible with eSIM and buy the card through the Airalo app. It's very easy!

Get Travel Insurance

It is essential to be prepared for any trip you take, especially outside of Europe. Unexpected events happen, and no one wants to come back from vacation with a huge hospital bill to pay. That's where travel insurance comes in, an indispensable ally to ensure tranquility and safety for your holidays.

IATI offers numerous types of travel insurance depending on your type of trip and various coverages. Moreover, by purchasing insurance through our link, you get a special 5% discount.
