Waterfalls in Bali

Bali is all about sunset cocktails, great surfing and beautiful beaches. Pretty enough for paradise isn’t it? But this island of Gods is home to some stunning waterfalls - there are 4 to hunt you down for your next adventure.

✔Kanto Lampo Waterfall

It is not the highest waterfall in Bali, but it is quite large and the water flows beautifully on the rock cliff and you can climb on the rock to take pictures. It is located in the Village Beng, in Gianyar District. Once you arrive, just follow the stairs all the way down, which takes approximately 5-10 minutes. Watch you step! Your way down to the waterfall will be really impressive. Surrounded by lush green vegetation and decorated with pretty balinese umbrellas the view of the waterfall is spectacular!

When you reach the waterfall, you need to get into the water to get the best view of the surrounding area. The river is not very deep but the water is muddy so be careful as you cannot see where you step. Getting to the waterfall, you will have to go down natural stairs carved in the rock, but don’t worry there is a handrail.

The beautiful Tegenungan Waterfall is 25 meters high! It is one of the few waterfalls in Bali that is not situated in the mountains but it is still surrounded by an impressively green panorama. It’s located close to the city of Denpasar. Getting to the Tegenungan is a pleasant drive down paved village roads lined with stretches of green rice fields on the both sides.

The falls are only several minute walk down the parking area where you’ll enjoy the breathtaking panorama. Dense foliage frames the falls, and the water volume is impressive at almost any time of the year. You can go down to the vast pebbly base and enjoy a dip in the plunge pool, although this is not advised after heavy showers, due to the risk of floods.

✔GitGit Waterfall

GitGit is in 10 km from Singaraja. It is one of the easiest to find and reach by road. Because of its accessibility, GitGit has become one of the Bali’s most famous tourist attractions, with refreshment stops and even the chance for a spot for “retail therapy” in the art shop. Our water giant is about thirty-five meter high, surrounded by lush greenery.  If you are lucky, you might even spot in this tropical forest wild monkeys hanging out on the trees and drinking from the falls. By the way, a bit of warning for those who believe in granny’s tales – local legend has it that couples who bathe together under the waterfall will separate soon after their visit. So don't say I didn't warn you.

✔Sekumpul Waterfall

Located in the village of Sekumpul the same-name waterfall is known as the most beautiful in Bali. The waterfall is actually a cluster of seven narrow cascades (the highest of them is 50 meter tall) that form the centrepiece of a lush green bamboo forested valley. To see it up close requires a little bit of an effort, so this is one for the real adventurers out there! It will take a forest road, lots of slippery steps, and crossing of a river to get you nearby, but trust us, it’s worth the trek!

Trip lifehacks
