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 is one of my favorite waterfalls and I highly recommend you add it to your list of the 7 must-see waterfalls in Bali.
Have you got travel insurance for Bali? I know that nobody likes to talk about this stuff but accidents can happen and having World Nomads Insurance can save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong.
HOW TO GET TO LEKE LEKE WATERFALL
Leke Leke Waterfall is 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. A full tank of gas is all you need for a round trip.
You can also hire a private taxi driver for the day for around $50, just ask your accommodation and they will happily be able to organise this for you.

ARRIVING AT LEKE LEKE WATERFALL
The entrance to Leke Leke Waterfall is very easy to see from the road and there is a small Bali hut style roof with a sign reading ‘Leke Leke’. Follow the steps down to the ticket office and the cost is 30,000 Rupiah per person. This small fee helps them to maintain the trail and bamboo bridges.
There is a small restaurant at the top to purchase water or snacks before you make the trek down to the waterfall. This is also a great spot to chill before and after the adventure with amazing views of the jungle below.
The trail down to Leke Leke Waterfall is well maintained with steps cut into the land and cleared paths. There are also bamboo bridge structures over the river crossings which make for great photo opportunities. The hike into 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!

WHAT TO EXPECT AT LEKE LEKE WATERFALL
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 surged 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.
The best lighting to take photos at Leke Leke waterfall is between 12pm and 1pm. I preferred shooting from a higher angle as opposed to going down to the base of the falls. You can utilise the boulders in the rock pool as a great vantage point.
As you make your way back to the top there is a rope chair swing that the landowners have recently installed between two huge trees. They were asking for 250,000 Rupiah which I thought was a bit excessive and I wasn’t willing to pay this much. However, I did see someone else swinging out, high above the jungle canopy and it looked like a lot of fun.
