Updated on 19/12/2019

Bali is not only home to endless beautiful beaches with breathtaking sunsets, but also to stunning waterfalls. In fact, there are over 18 waterfalls hidden on the island. Some make a great adventurous expedition, some are secret gems that nobody has heard of. I have visited some Bali waterfalls during my last trip to Bali, and I think you should check it out too! Check out the Bali Waterfalls Guide below where you can find very detailed tips and suggestions. But first, I’ve created a handy chart for you to compare the waterfalls and decide which one to visit:

Tegenungan – Most Popular Bali Waterfall near Ubud

Tegenungan Waterfall

Just 5 km to the south of Ubud’s city centre, Tegenungan waterfall is the perfect place to enjoy a hot day by the waterside. This is perhaps the most popular amongst Bali waterfalls. There are 165 steps leading down to the waterfall. The path is well-maintained and pretty easy, so you don’t need any hiking experience for this. If you are not used to physical activity, you will find it a bit challenging, especially on the way up.

Here’s a detailed video about the way to Tegenungan Waterfall:

How to get to Tegenungan Waterfall

The easiest way is to arrange a car and driver to bring you from your Ubud villas to Tegenungan Waterfall. However, if you are going by scooter, you can easily find your way through Google Map. The road is scenic and well-paved. As you get closer, you will see a sign with photos and texts reading “Tegenungan Waterfall”. It will point you in the right direction.

  • From Ubud: 30 minutes
  • From Seminyak: 1 hour 10 minutes
  • From Canggu: 1 hour

Tegenungan Waterfall Tips

If you want to avoid the crowd, be there early. I reached there at about 6.15 am, and I noticed the crowd start coming in at around 8 am. There are also changing booths available, so you can change into your swimsuits and enjoy swimming in the cooling water. Be careful when going near to the waterfall as the current can be too strong. Also, the depth of the water is not safe for cliff jumping!

Tegenungan Waterfall itineraries

Once you are back up there, you can treat yourself to a delicious local meal. Check out Perantenan Restaurant, Waroeng Adji and Zest Ubud. They are all located near the waterfall and are very delicious too!

It’s not worth it to spend an entire day at this one waterfall. You can combine it with a few other activities and attractions like Campuhan Ridge Walk, Tegalalang Rice Terrace, Ubud Monkey Forest or Ubud Royal Palace. Here are some suggested itineraries:

Itinerary 1: Tegenungan Waterfall – Campuhan Ridge Walk – Ubud Royal Palace

This itinerary is good if you enjoy leisured walks and scenic nature view. The Campuhan Ridge walk is very beautiful. And after the trek, you will head to Ubud Royal Palace or rest at one of the many cafes in Ubud as at this point, you are pretty close to Ubud centre. Here’s the route.

Itinerary 2:  Beji Guwang Hidden Canyon – Sukawati Art Market – Tegenungan Waterfall

This itinerary is great for adventurous souls who enjoy an active day out. Beji Guwang Hidden Canyon is quite a tough climb to challenge yourself. It will take you about 2 hours to explore the Canyon. After that, head to Tegenungan Waterfall and stopping by Sukawati Art Market on the way if you need to buy some souvenirs. Here’s the route.

Aling Aling Waterfall – Beautiful waterfall in North Bali for cliff jumping

aling aling waterfall guide

Photo by TripAdvisor

The 35-metre high Aling Aling is found in the North of Bali, in the ‘Secret a Garden of Sambangan‘ to be precise. Great for all of you adrenaline seekers out there. I was a bit scared but I faced both challenges a couple of years back and it is an unforgettable experience, captured on camera!

Aling Aling is the most well-known waterfall in the group. However, it’s sacred and no swimming is allowed there. The one where you can swim and do cliff jumping is called Kroya Waterfall, which is a short hike away. There are 3 levels of cliff jumping: 5m, 10m and 15m, all within the same trek. The 5m one is good for kids. The 10m jump is great, and 15m one is quite scary. I’ve heard stories of people breaking bones while attempting the 15m jump as the impact when you hit the water is quite heavy, so….do it at your own risk.

Here’s a detailed video about the trek:

Aling Aling Waterfall Entrance Fee

  • View/trek only: IDR 10,000 (no swimming)
  • Trekking, swimming & cliff jumping with a private guide: IDR 125,000, 250,000 or 375,000 depending on the length of the trek
    • Short trek: Aling-Aling, Kroya, Kembar and Pucuk
    • Medium trek: the short trek plus the blue lagoon
    • Long trek: the medium trek plus 3 more waterfalls

If you are not going to swim, you can still do a self-guided tour around the waterfalls. For swimming and cliff jumping, hiring a guide is compulsory, and it’s also necessary for safety reasons. The guide will let you know where it’s safe to land your jumps.

You will trek through beautiful rice fields, verdant coffee, cocoa and clove gardens before reaching the first waterfall. There is a cement stair leading to all waterfalls, so it’s not a difficult walk.

How to get to Aling Aling Waterfall

You can easily rent a car for a day and the driver will pick you up at your villa. It’s also possible to rent a scooter and drive to the waterfall yourself. Simply follow Google Map to Sambangan Village. You will find directions to the waterfall there.

  • From Lovina: 30 minutes
  • From Ubud: 2 hours and 15 minutes
  • From Seminyak: 2.5 hours
  • From Canggu: 2 hours

Aling Aling Waterfall itineraries

After trekking through this beautiful waterfall, fill your tummy at The Secret Valley Club, Krisna Adventure or The Damai Restaurant!

Visiting Aling Aling Waterfall takes you about half a day. If you come all the way from Seminyak or Canggu, I recommend staying over a day or two in Lovina and enjoy the laid-back life there. Here are some suggested itineraries for your trip to North Bali:

Itinerary 1: Aling Aling Waterfall – Lovina beach

Chances are you are already quite tired after the hike. I suggest you head back to Lovina, spend some time at a beachside cafe (Like Sea Breeze Cafe or Spice Beach Club) or get a massage and relax at your Lovina villa.

Itinerary 2: Aling Aling Waterfall – Sekumpul Waterfall – Git Git Waterfall

Chasing waterfalls? Aling Aling is close to Git Git Waterfall and Sekumpul Waterfall (more about them later). You can check them out all at once and make a complete day trip. However, this does mean that you won’t have a lot of time to enjoy each waterfall. Take a look at the route here.

Itinerary 3: Aling Aling Waterfall – Lake Buyan

If you have already had enough of waterfalls but still want to enjoy nature, head to Lake Buyan. The view is stunning, and it makes a great picnic/camping spot. Here’s the route.

Git Git – Popular waterfall near Lovina

Git Git Waterfall Bali

Located in between Singaraja and Bedugul in North Bali, Git Git is one of the most popular waterfalls in Bali. The waterfall splits into two while cascading down into a natural pool below, therefore Git Git is also knowns as ‘the twin falls’.

To get to the waterfall, you will wander down a scenic path in the nature of North Bali. You will pass souvenir stalls, clove and coffee trees. There is a well-paved stair leading to all waterfalls, so it’s not a difficult walk. The way down is about 15-20 minutes. Going up takes 30 minutes. If you are up for a little hike, there are two more waterfalls to be explored close by, just a little 2 km jungle trek away. You can swim at Git Git Waterfall, but the current can be quite strong, so it’s not recommended for kids.

Here’s a detailed video about the trek:

How to get to Git Git Waterfall

You can rent a car to go to Git Git Waterfall. If you are confident on two wheels, you can go there on your scooter too. Simply follow Google Map to find your way.

  • From Lovina: 50 minutes

Git Git Waterfall Tips

The entrance fee ranges from Rp. 10,000 to Rp. 20,000 and a little more if you opt for a guide. Some of the guides may overcharge, so be careful and bargain with them. You can hike Git Git without a guide, too.

Git Git Waterfall itineraries

There are eateries near the entrance of Git Git waterfall, so you can fuel up before and after your hike!

It takes 1-1.5 hours to visit Git Git, and you will have plenty of time for other activities. Check out some suggested itineraries below:

Itinerary 1: Lovina Beach – Pura Ulun Danu Buyan – Git Git Waterfall

Start the day early and head out to spot some dolphins. After that, make your way to Pura Ulun Danu Buyan and then Git Git Waterfall. Here’s the route.

Itinerary 2: Git Git Waterfall – Aling Aling Waterfall – Sekumpul Waterfall

To be honest, Git Git alone won’t be able to quench your thirst (lame pun intended) for Bali waterfalls. There are two other waterfalls nearby, Aling Aling and Sekumpul, both are fascinating. You can incorporate all three in one day, or choose two of them to enjoy each waterfall properly. Here’s the route.

Sekumpul Waterfall – Stunning waterfalls in North Bali

Sekumpul Waterfall bali

Sekumpul Waterfall is actually not just 1 waterfall but it is a group of 7 falls. The trail is quite challenging. You have to walk down a dirt road, hundreds of stairs and across a river. The steps are steep and some are quite slippery. You will need to cross a river at some point, so bring aqua shoes or something that you are comfortable with getting them wet. Also, it’s not recommended for families. The hike to the fall is arduous, but getting back is another story.

Here’s a detailed video about the trail:

Sekumpul Waterfall Entrance Fee

  • View Only: IDR 20,000
  • Medium trek: IDR 125,000 (include a guide, donation to the village, Sekumpul and Hidden Waterfalls)
  • Long trek: IDR 200,000 (medium trek plus Fiji waterfall)

There are plenty of “reservation counters” on the way to Sekumpul Waterfall. Ignore these and make your way to the official Sekumpul carpark.

How to get to Sekumpul Waterfall

The waterfall is located in North Bali, so if you are staying in the area, you can easily get there by scooter. Simply follow Google Map, you will be able to find the way. But if you are not confident on two wheels or are travelling in group, renting a car is the best option.

  • From Lovina: 1 hour
  • From Ubud: 2 hours
  • From Seminyak: 2.5 hours
  • From Canggu: 2 hours 10 minutes

Sekumpul Waterfall itineraries

There are a few small eateries near the waterfall. However, you can also pack your own meals as the restaurants are pretty far away. Check out some itineraries below:

Itinerary 1: Sekumpul Waterfall only

If you are coming from Ubud, visiting the waterfall and back makes a whole day trip. The hike is quite challenging, so I’d suggest taking your time there (usually, people spend about 3 hours at the waterfall). Bring along some lunch and snack for a nice picnic by the fall. After you have made your way through hundreds of steps to get back, go for a massage to release the tension and enjoy an afternoon coffee.

Itinerary 2: Git Git Waterfall – Sekumpul Waterfall

Git Git’s glamour dims when compared to Sekumpul. However, it’s still a nice waterfall that you can check out on the way, just be sure to see it before checking out Sekumpul. Here’s the route.

Munduk Waterfall – Beautiful jungle trek in Munduk

Munduk Waterfall Bali

Photo by TripAdvisor

Another waterfall of North Bali. Munduk is a beautiful waterfall that rushes down with a great force into a rocky pool below. You can really feel the force of nature when standing close to it, and you are most likely to spot a rainbow.

The most popular trek here is the Munduk Waterfall Trek which leads you to three waterfalls: Melanting, Red Coral and Golden Valley. You can choose various starting point and design your own trail, like the loop below (it starts at Taman Ayu Homestay, going up to Melanting Waterfall and Red Coral Waterfall, and looping back to the village).

Munduk trail map

I’d recommend you to do the trek in this order: Golden Valley Waterfall, Red Coral and Melanting. You will need to arrange transportation to the starting point at Golden Valley Waterfall (there’s an Eco Cafe there, so you can grab some breakfast too). In this way, you will skip most of the steep stairs and end up in the village, where you can find some post-hike refreshments. If you start from Melanting, the hike will mostly be uphill.

How to get to Munduk Waterfall

You can easily arrange a car to drive you to Munduk, or rent a  scooter. The entrance of the waterfall may not be obvious as the signpost is located at a corner. Do look out for the signage after you pass by Wanagiri Village. Also, the hike to the waterfall might involve sharing the road with villagers at Munduk Village. So look out for cars and bikes!

  • From Lovina: 45 minutes
  • From Ubud: 2 hours
  • From Seminyak: 2 hours 10 minutes
  • From Canggu: 2 hours

Trekking Munduk can easily take up half of your day. If you want a more relaxing itinerary, I suggest heading back to Lovina or Ubud and enjoy the afternoon around the city center. However, if you are up to more sightseeing, check out Lake Buyan. Here’s the route.

Singsing Waterfall – Hidden Bali waterfall close to Lovina

Photo by TripAdvisor

Just a  few kilometres west of Lovina, Sing Sing Waterfall is probably the most accessible fall you can find. You don’t need to hike through the jungles, steep stairs or slippery path.  From the carpark, take a short walk down the stable stones and there you are.  The best time to visit is in the rainy season from October to April if you don’t want to risk hiking up to a dried-up waterfall. The drive there is really scenic.

There are two waterfalls at Singsing Waterfall. The first one is easy to find, just a 5 minutes hike from the entrance. For the second one, is higher up and is much more difficult to get there. You can hire a guide to lead the way but be sure you agree on a price first!

How to get to Sing Sing Waterfall, Lovina

It’s easy to  rent a car to Sing Sing Waterfall. If you are going with your scooter, Google Map can help you find the way. Once you reach the parking lot, there is a clear path leading to the waterfall, but it’s easier if you follow one of the locals there (and tip them afterwards).

  • From Lovina: 15 minutes
  • From Ubud: 2 hours 10 minutes
  • From Seminyak: 2 hours 30 minutes
  • From Canggu: 2 hours 10 minutes

It’s a small waterfall, so it will take you less than 2 hours to explore. To make a full-day trip, check out Brahma Vihara Arama Buddhist Monastery and Banjar Hot Spring as well. Here’s the route.

Yeh Mampeh Waterfall – Off-the-beaten-path Waterfall in Bali

Les Waterfall Bali

Photo by Bali Tourism Board

Located between Singaraja and Kintamani, Yeh Mampeh (aka Les Waterfall) is completely off the tourist radar. Yeh Mampeh actually translates to ‘flying water’ and you will know why once standing in this valley, gazing up at another impressive waterfall of the island, and feeling the water splash into your face and onto your body. The hike is pretty flat, it’s quite easy and good for kids. You can also visit a nearby cave to make this day-trip complete.

It is safe to swim near the waterfall, but beware, there may be some locals bathing in the water!

Here’s a video about the trail:

How to get to Yeh Mampeh Waterfall

The easiest way to get there is by car. You can also rent a scooter and drive there yourself.

Close to Git Git but much lesser-known, Jembong waterfall is still untouched and surrounded by breathtaking nature. A great place to find peace of mind, allowing nature to calm your mind, body, and soul. From the car park, there is a short uphill climb that is not so steep. You can plunge into the pool at the base of the waterfall. Beware, though, the water is pretty cold.

Here’s a video about Jembong Waterfall:

Nungnung Waterfall – A rewarding hike in North Bali

Bali waterfalls guide - Nung Nung

Nungnung waterfall is located in the central highlands of Bali, near Bedugul. 509 steep steps will take you to the bottom of this impressive waterfall, and on the way down you are treated to magnificent views of rice paddies. The air is fresh, the surroundings are untouched and trust me when I say that you will feel quite small when looking up at this 50-metre waterfall. This waterfall can be visited in both rain and dry season. Do note that during the rainy season, the current will get too strong for you to swim.

Take a look at the  path there:

How to get to Nungnung Waterfall

It’s best to rent a bike or arrange a car to get you to this waterfall.

About  20 minutes down a slippery stair, you will find this enchanting beauty. The hike is not as tough as Sekumpul, but you will still need proper footwear for this. While it’s not compulsory to have a guide, you may need one to show you the way as the waterfall is a bit hard to find.

Check out a review here:

Getting to Banyumala Twin Waterfalls

It is a stunning waterfall but it’s not easy to get there. You can hire a private driver as they may be more familiar with the area. The road is bumpy and not in very good condition.

Blemantung is located in the rural, fertile Tabanan regency of Bali, surrounded by rainforest and coffee plantations. This waterfall cascades down 50 metres down from the high cliffs above and you can swim in the crystal clear water below. It takes 800-metre trekking in nature down to get to the bottom of this waterfall. Take in the serene ambience of this place, see the almost magical colours, breathe in the fresh air and pay attention to the subtle scent of coffee in the air. You will love it here!

Tukad Cepung Waterfall – Insta-beauty near Ubud

The way to the waterfall is quite straightforward as there is a steady stair leading down. However, the steps are quite high, so it might prove challenging for some, especially if you have knee or heart problems. At the bottom of the gorge, the path is uneven with rocks, boulders and gravels. The path can get quite slippery when it’s wet. At certain points, you will have to wade through knee-deep water with a few rocks at the bottom.

After descending the stairs, turn left to reach the waterfall. If you go right, there’s a nice peaceful walk away from the crowd with a smaller waterfall. Many people go here for the gram, so it can get pretty crowded, and there’s a queue to take pictures.

A nice 500-metre trail through coffee plantations and gardens lead you to Bhuana Sari Waterfall in North Bali. This is the second set of Banyu Wana Amertha Waterfall, so it might be easier for you to search using this name. Developed in 2018, this place is not as popular amongst tourists as others, so if you are seeking something off-the-beaten-path, this should be on your list. The path is a bit steep and slippery at certain parts, so remember to bring proper footwear.

There’s is not much space to swim, but you can soak in the refreshing water. Plus, you will need to get into the river to get the best view of this waterfall, so bring your swimsuit along. If you plan to climb on the rock to take an iconic photo, take extra caution as the rocks are very slippery.

Essential tips for visiting Bali Waterfalls

  • Bring your swimsuit. Not every waterfall is great for swimming, but if you want to capture the best photo, you will most likely have to get close to the waterfall.
  • Bring proper footwear (water shoes, shoes with good grip). For waterfalls with moderate to difficult trails, having proper footwear makes such a big difference. There are some waterfalls where you have to trek through water, so make sure you are wearing something that’s ok to be wet.
  • Some essential items: sunblock, insect repellent, water, snacks
  • If you are bringing your camera, bring along a waterproof cover and lens wipes to keep it from getting wet. The mist from the waterfalls can be quite significant.
  • To beat the crowd, go early in the morning (around 6.30 am), or after 3 pm.
