You can pick up a scooter rental for as little as 50,000 IDR per day from your accommodation or from one of the many scooter rental stores in the main tourist hubs.

ARRIVING AT ALING ALING WATERFALL BALI

There is a small ticket office located on the side of the road upon arriving at Aling Aling Waterfall. You will have to stop here and pay an entrance fee.

There are two Aling Aling Waterfall entrance fee options that you can choose from:

  • The first option is 125,000 IDR which is a guided tour down to Aling Aling Waterfalls including swimming and cliff jumping.
  • The second option is only 10,000 IDR which allows entry to the falls on a self-guided Aling Aling Waterfall tour but they say no swimming or cliff jumping is allowed without a guide.

The hike down to Aling Aling Waterfall is only 10 to 15 minutes along a well-maintained path and concrete steps, which can be slippery when wet so take your time.

The path cuts through beautiful rice terraces before you start descending down the edges of the valley.

About halfway down you will find an awesome viewpoint of Alingaling Waterfall from an aerial perspective which you can see in the photo below.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT ALING ALING WATERFALL

When you reach the bottom of the stairs, make a right turn and this path will take you to the base of the main falls at Aling Aling Waterfall.

The thundering sounds of Aling Aling Waterfall echo through the valley as the heavy discharge of water hammerers down into basin pool below. An amphitheater of lush green walls surrounds this unique 35-meter high waterfall.

There are concrete steps that you can take down to the rocks to get a little bit closer to Aling Aling Waterfall. They are very very slippery so hang on to the handrail as you walk down.

I wouldn’t recommend swimming at this waterfall as the flow of water is very heavy and it creates a whirlpool that could potentially suck you under. But not to worry, there are lots of other swim spots in this valley.

KROYA WATERFALL

Head back on the path in the direction you came and follow the creek downstream. This will lead you to the next three sets of falls at Aling Aling Waterfall.

The first one is Kroya Waterfall, a natural slide down a smooth rock face and it drops into a deep pool.

I saw some people sliding down Kroya Waterfall with the help of their local guide and they had protective life jackets with head padding for safety.

There is also a concrete platform that can be used as a diving board to jump into the deep pools.

TWIN FALLS 

Continue your Aling Aling Waterfall adventure downstream to the next waterfall which is known as the Twin Falls. A rock cliff face separates the flow of water and creates this twin set of falls.

This is also another cliff jumping spot, but it is recommended that you have a guide if you want to jump.

Don’t stop here because there is one more epic waterfall to see. You can cross the creek and climb down the rock face to the last waterfall in the Aling Aling Waterfall valley.

There is a rope attached to the rock and some steps cut out to aid you down the cliff. When I adventured down to the base of this waterfall, the valley opens up and there are some great swimming spots and pebbly creek banks to chill out on.
