ARRIVING AT BANYU WANA AMERTHA WATERFALL

The entrance to the waterfall is clearly marked with this 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 hidden waterfalls.

We made our way down a dirt track and came across a group of local villagers cutting steps into the earth, making it safe and accessible for visitors coming to Banyu Wana Amerta Waterfall. It is approximately a 20-minute hike down to the waterfalls through some very lush banana plantations. I was hoping to have the spot all to ourselves, though when we got to the bottom there was around 50 Indonesians. I thought to myself that it must be a popular spot for the locals and then I watched on and noticed that they were working really hard constructing bamboo bridges, clearing out the rock pools beneath the falls and planting beautiful flora to add to the ambience.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT BANYU WANA AMERTHA WATERFALL

When you reach the bottom of the stairs, you will find two 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 three 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.

The first set off falls reminded me of Bali’s Nungnung Waterfall, with a similar bamboo bridge that stretches across a flowing creek which leads to the rock pools at the base of the falls.

The second set of falls is very unique. The water bursts out of a rock wall formation and into a shallow pool that then cascades into a creek that cuts its way down the valley.

The local workers were overly friendly when they stopped for a lunch break, they offered us some coffee and fried bananas! I originally said no thanks to their offer as I didn’t want to leave the workers short of food and coffee, but they insisted that I joined in on their gathering. I have no doubt in saying that Indonesian’s are some of the most generous and caring people in the world.

BEST TIME TO VISIT BANYU WANA AMERTA WATERFALL

I arrived at the Banyu Wana Amerta Hidden Waterfall at around 9am, and the lighting from the sun was perfect to shoot at this time. We spent at least 2-3 hours down at the falls, hanging out with the locals, swimming in the rock pools and grinning from ear to ear at what we had just discovered.

Put this location on your Bali Bucket List and I promise that you will not be disappointed. I will definitely be visiting this location again soon to explore the other 3 hidden waterfalls in this valley.
