DISCOVER LEKE LEKE WATERFALL IN BALI

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 on the island and I highly recommend adding it to your list of must-see Bali waterfalls.

I have put together this complete guide of Leke Leke Waterfall including how to get there, how much it costs and what to expect when you arrive.

 

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 on the way to Leke Leke Waterfall. A full tank of gas is all you will need for a round trip.

You can also hire a private taxi driver for the day for around $50 and they will be able to give you a ride to Leke Leke Waterfall. 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 entrance fee 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 Leke Leke 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 to Leke Leke Waterfall is an easy to moderate hike that takes approximately 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 Leke Leke 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 Leke Leke Waterfall Bali and this is where you will find a naturally carved out cave.

The best lighting to take photos at Leke Leke Waterfall is between 12 pm and 1 pm. 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.

I recommend spending around 1 hour hanging out at Leke Leke Waterfall to make the most of the tranquil serenity that surrounds the falls.

As you make your way back to the top, there is a rope chair swing that the Leke Leke Waterfall landowners have recently installed between two huge trees.

The going price to use the swing is 250,000 Rupiah which I thought was a bit excessive and I wasn’t willing to pay that much. However, I did see some other travelers swinging out, high above the jungle canopy and it looked like a lot of fun.

    Hi jonny, Thanks for your post. Just wanted to ask how strenuous getting to this waterfall and back again would be. We would have two small kids with us. Mainly concerned about the way back up.
    Looks amazing though!

      This is a very easy walk to the waterfall. A few steps but not that strenuous and I think you will be okay with your kids. Enjoy 🙂

    Hi Jonny,

    Firstly this is a great article, easily read and informative but I was just wondering if you know the footfall of tourists at the waterfall? I would hate to get there and find 100 people all milling around. If you can help it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Pete.

      Thanks for reading and glad you love it! If you go early in the morning around 9am there shouldn’t be too many people there. Each time I have been there early there has been no people. Enjoy 🙂
