ULTIMATE GUIDE TO THE BEST BALI WATERFALLS

SEKUMPUL WATERFALL

Sekumpul Waterfall is known as ‘The Best Waterfall in Bali’ and for a damn good reason! There is a mecca of waterfalls in this region to be explored, so what are you waiting for?!

Sekumpul Waterfall (Air Terjun Sekumpul) is located in the northern region of Bali, approximately a 2.5 hour drive from Denpasar.

As you begin the 30-minute hike down through the lush bamboo forested valley to Sekumpul Waterfall you will come across an awesome viewpoint of the falls from a birds-eye perspective. The twin falls gushes down a whopping total of 80 meters before it reaches the rock pool at the base of the falls.

NUNGNUNG WATERFALL

Nungnung Waterfall is a must-see location on your next adventure in Bali! It is rated as one of the best Bali waterfalls on the island.

Nungnung Waterfall is located in the high mountains of Bali in the northern region. It is approximately 40kms from Denpasar with a trip time of 1.5 hours or a 1-hour drive from Ubud. As you approach the village of Nungnung you will trace the road via hilly rice fields and coconut palm plantations.

Heading To Bali ∼ The Ultimate Bali Packing List

The hike down to Nungnung Waterfall takes approximately 20 minutes. The track is clear and you will also have to attack a steep set of concrete stairs that will without a doubt give your legs a good workout. It is all worth it when you make it down to the base of Air Terjun Nungnung!

Of all the incredible waterfalls that I have explored in Bali, Nungnung Waterfall makes my top 3 list of the best Bali waterfalls!

TIBUMANA WATERFALL

Tibumana Waterfall is a beautiful hidden paradise and it is definitely one of Bali’s Best Kept Secrets. This picture perfect waterfall is a fantastic place to spend the day exploring the surrounding rain forests and swimming in the natural rock pools.

Tibumana Waterfall is located in Bali’s central region known as Gianyar. From Ubud, it is approximately a 30-40 minute drive.

The drive from Ubud to Tibumana Waterfall is absolutely gorgeous. About 2 minutes before you arrive in the car park for the falls, you will come across possibly the best palm tree lined road in all of Bali! Be sure to stop here to take some happy snaps.

Free ∼ $40 AirBnb Credit

Tibumana Waterfall is an easy location to find and parking is free. The local villagers are overly friendly and are always excited to see new visitors. The entrance fee to Tibumana Waterfall is 10,000 Rupiah ($1).

Once you have received your entrance ticket, there is a short 10-minute hike down to the waterfall through a lush rain forest and across bamboo bridges that stretch across a freshwater stream.

LEKE LEKE WATERFALL

The Leke Leke Waterfall in Bali is a great adventure for anyone looking to do a day trip away from the city to explore some of Bali’s most beautiful landscapes. Leke Leke waterfall, in my opinion, is underrated and it should be up there in the Top 10 must-see waterfalls in Bali.

Located in Bali’s central region, approximately 1.5 hours drive north of Kuta or a 1-hour drive north of Canggu. If you are renting a scooter, you will find this ride very enjoyable as you pass through the local villages and beautiful rice terraces.

The hike down the waterfall is an easy to moderate hike that takes approx 15 minutes and as you can see in the photos the plant life is amazing!

When you reach the end of the trail you’ll be greeted with the incredible sight of Leke Leke waterfall. My first impression of the waterfall was how it looked like a flow of white satin threaded with silver as it surges down into a shallow rock pool below. You can explore behind the falls and this is where you will find a naturally carved out cave.

ALING ALING WATERFALL

I hope you like chasing waterfalls as much as I do because the Aling Aling Waterfall in Bali is absolutely breathtaking. There are four impressive waterfalls that I discovered in this valley, making for the perfect day trip when visiting the island of Bali.

Aling Aling Waterfall is located very close to Singaraja, which is in the far north of the island. From Denpasar, the trip time is 2.5 hours and from Ubud, the trip time is 2 hours.

The hike down to Aling Aling Waterfall is only 10-15 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.

When you reach the bottom of the stairs make a right turn and this path will take you to the base of the falls. The thundering sounds of the falls echoes through the valley as the heavy discharge of water hammerers down into basin pool below. An amphitheatre of lush green walls surrounds this unique 35-meter high waterfall.

BANYU WANA AMERTA WATERFALLS

Also in the northern region of Bali, you can discover the Banyu Wana Amerta Waterfall.

The entrance to Banyu Wana Amerta Waterfall is clearly marked with a sign and the entrance fee is by donation so I paid 10,000 Rupiah to enter. The locals at the ticket office were so happy to see us because we were possibly the first tourists to ever visit these epic waterfalls.

Heading To Bali ∼ The Ultimate Bali Packing List

When you reach the bottom of the stairs, you will find 2 epic waterfalls that are within a stone’s throw from each other. I got chatting with one of the workers and he told me that there are another 3 waterfalls in the same valley though they are not yet accessible. It was truly amazing seeing the amount of effort that goes into making places like this an iconic location to experience.

DUSUN KUNING – YELLOW WATERFALL

The Dusun Kuning Waterfall, also known as Yellow Waterfall, is a unique set of falls that I have discovered and it is definitely up there in the top 10 must-see Bali Waterfalls.

The Dusun Kuning Waterfall is located in the east-central region of Bali close by to Gianyar. From Ubud, it is approximately 45 minutes drive and from Canggu or Kuta it is approximately 1.5 hours drive.

The hike all the way down to Dusun Kuning takes only 15 minutes and it is suitable for all levels of hikers. The dense jungle felt like it came to life after some rainfall and it enhanced all the colours of the flora that surrounded us.

I was in awe, to say the least when I feasted my eyes on this tranquil waterfall. Dusun Kuning is 25 metres high and the water flows effortlessly down the slate rock face and pools below. Tropical, green plantations surround the falls and the serene ambience is next level.

    What a cool post! During the time my husband and I lived in Bali we got to visit only one waterfall and it was such a magical place. Can’t wait to return and discover more! Saving your post for future reference!
