From Canggu, Seminyak, or Kuta it’s approximately a 1.5 hours drive to reach Nungnung Waterfall.

As you approach the village of Nungnung, you will trace the road via hilly rice fields and coconut palm plantations.

There are also two more waterfalls close by Nungnung Waterfall which are Leke Leke Waterfall and Sekumpul Waterfall. It is possible to explore all three of these waterfalls in one day.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT AIR TERJUN NUNGNUNG

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. But don’t worry too much because it’s 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 it on to my top 7 Best Bali Waterfalls list!

It is possible to swim in the rock pool beneath the 50-meter waterfall though do so at your own risk. The water discharge at Nungnung Waterfall Bali is one of the most powerful ones I have come across.

There is lots of exploring to do around the basin at Nungnung Waterfall and the best spot for photos is on the bamboo bridge that crosses the stream.

NUNGNUNG WATERFALL – THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

The best time to visit Nungnung Waterfall (Air Terjun Nungnung) is in the morning between 10 am-12 pm for the best lighting from the sun.

There are several angles to shoot Nungnung Waterfall from, my personal favorite is with the bamboo bridge in the foreground. The spray in the amphitheater beneath the falls can soak your camera lens, so be prepared with a lens wiper.

I always tend to pack a lunch and plenty of drinking water on my daily adventures throughout Bali, however, you can always find warungs (local restaurants) at basically every waterfall location, including Nungnung Waterfall. A local dish of nasi goreng or mie goreng costs around $2 and bottled water for $1.

      Hi Federica! Yes there are always going to be a lot of people at these waterfalls. Best time to visit is early morning around 7-8am and you will most likely have the place to yourself!
