1) Getting to Bali Waterfalls

Bali is a bigger island than most think and it can take time getting from one area to the next during a visit. To get the most out of your experience in the country, I would recommend choosing a few different towns to stay in.

This way, you can truly enjoy each and every place you visit without wasting too much time driving back and forth from one single spot. Feel free to take a look at this Bali Itinerary that takes you through what one week in Bali can look like.

Once you are situated in a certain spot, there are a few ways to go about transportation when visiting waterfalls.

Private Driver

The most convenient and stress-free way of going about a day is to hire a driver to take you around to various spots. They can simply pick you up from your hotel, drive you to waterfalls (and other highlights), and then drop you off at day’s end.

Expect a full day driver to be around $40-$50 USD, which can be a great price if splitting it with several people.

Renting a Scooter

Once you are in an area (Munduk, Ubud, Seminyak, etc.), you can easily rent a scooter for your time there. Scooter rentals are very affordable at just $5-$10 per day.

If you are renting a scooter, you must be comfortable driving the roads. It can get quite hectic driving around Bali, and accidents with tourists happen frequently.

In this guide, I have included GPS locations for the entrance for each waterfall if you were planning a visit on your own.

Joining a Tour

Some, but not all waterfalls in Bali have guided tour options to choose from too. These would be group tours, where a bunch of like-minded travelers would get picked up by a guide and be driven to one or more waterfalls (and potentially other activities) for the day.

I would recommend this option for solo travelers who want to meet others and not go about visiting waterfalls on their own.

For those waterfalls that have guided tour options available, I will include some booking links to reserve your spot.

2) Local Waterfall Guides

Before talking about the waterfalls themselves, I did want to mention the fact that some of the waterfalls have local guides available on site.

This is because at many of these waterfalls, you will not just simply park and be directly at the waterfall. Instead, there may be a trek involved down to the valley floor and along a river to reach the waterfall.

A few of the waterfalls mentioned in this guide (like Aling Aling and Sekumpul), guides are mandatory and are included in an overall entrance ticket. However, do be sure to tip them as well at day’s end.

4) Map & Location of Bali Waterfalls

Below you can find a map of the 10 Bali waterfalls that I will be going through in more detail in this guide (highlighted in blue). As you can see, most of the waterfalls that I will be covering are located in northern Bali (around the Munduk region).

Also, on the map you can find additional waterfalls highlighted in red. These are other popular options to add onto your Bali itinerary if they seem of interest to you. While I did not have the chance to see them, they are certainly on my list for next time around.

I found the north of Bali to be the most peaceful of places to visit without the hustle and bustle compared to the more popular areas of the island.

While many people simply take day trips up from Ubud or the beaches, I would highly recommend spending a few nights up north to enjoy the full experience.

Not only will it be a bit more relaxing, but you also wont need to take those long day trips. Many of the waterfalls will be just outside your door step.

5) What to Bring & Wear

As you will learn, getting to many of these waterfalls is not a simple task. Rather, hiking may be necessary and could involve tricky and steep terrain. In addition, you will be dealing with some strong waterfalls, and odds are you won’t stay dry during many of these experiences.

Below are some of the “must bring” items that I would recommend you purchase before you head off to Indonesia.

1) Dry Bag: since you may be getting wet at some of these waterfalls I would highly recommend a dry bag to keep all your valuables safe. Whether it is your phone, wallet, camera, or change of clothes, believe me a dry bag will go a long way. Take a look at this Earth Park Dry Bag to hold your belongings.

2) Hiking Shoes or Closed Toe Sandals: you will want to watch your step as you go down the slippery path into the valley on many of these hikes. Having hiking shoes or closed toe sandals will be your best bet here. I would not recommend going down with flip flops. Take a look at the Keen Targhee III that I have been wearing recently or these Keen Newport H2 Sandals.

3) GoPro: if you want to get up and close to the waterfalls you will get wet. With that said, your camera equipment may get wet as well. Having a GoPro will solve some of those camera issues when dealing with water. Check out the GoPro Hero for your travels.

4) Quick Dry Towel: after getting all wet down in the bottom of the valley, it is nice to have a towel to dry off. This Rainleaf microfiber quick dry towel has been my go to when it comes to traveling.

→ Besides for the above, I would definitely bring a bathing suit if you want to go swimming and a change of clothes to switch into after finishing up by a waterfall.

6) The Best Waterfalls in Bali

Now that you have a bit of background of the Bali waterfalls and some overall logistics, let’s get into the waterfalls themselves.

I will start it off with the four waterfalls that make up the longer Munduk Waterfall trek in northern Bali. While you can visit these separately, I would recommend just doing the full trek and enjoying them all throughout a day in the area.

Labuhan Kebo Waterfall

Region: Northern Bali
Parking Coordinates: 8°15’41.9″S 115°03’56.5″E
Entrance Fee: $0.75 USD
Trek Distance: Full trek with stops 5-6 hours
Guide: Not necessary
Tour Option: Munduk Waterfall Trek Tour
Additional Info: part of the longer Munduk Waterfall trek, which starts at the Melanting Cottages, and visits 4 waterfalls all along the valley floor

Overview

After departing the Melanting Cottages, you will begin to follow the trail down towards the first waterfall on the trek, Labuhan Kebo. The pathway throughout is pretty well maintained and you shouldn’t have much issues getting yourself going in the right direction.

Surrounding you will be plenty of greenery and scenic views as you continue your way further down the valley.

Soon enough, you will reach the entrance for Labuhan Kebo. Here you will pay the fee and head down the staircase for around 5-10 minutes until you reach the bottom of the valley floor.

You will be welcomed to a beautiful waterfall surrounded by a lush natural landscape in addition to a couple of bridges that make their way over the river. You can then continue along closer to the waterfall itself to enjoy the view from there.

Labuhan Kebo Waterfall

Melanting Waterfall

Region: Northern Bali
Parking Coordinates: 8°15’41.9″S 115°03’56.5″E

Trek Distance: Full trek with stops 5-6 hours
Guide: Not necessary

Additional Info: part of the longer Munduk Waterfall trek, which starts at the Melanting Cottages, and visits 4 waterfalls all along the valley floor

Overview

After heading back up the stairs from Labuhan Kebo, the trail continues further along towards the Melanting waterfall. The trail to the waterfall is on a downhill path, meaning the way back towards the last two waterfalls will have a bit of an incline.

Similarly, to Labuhan Kebo, once you reach the entrance of the waterfall, you will be greeted to another set of stairs that takes you down to the valley floor. Once down there, you will have the Melanting waterfall out in front.

Enjoy the views from a far and up close, before doubling back up the stairs and retracing your steps along the pathway to the last two waterfalls of the day.

Melanting Waterfall

Red Coral / Munduk Waterfall

Region: Northern Bali
Parking Coordinates: 8°15’41.9″S 115°03’56.5″E
Entrance Fee: $1.50 USD
Trek Distance: Full trek with stops 5-6 hours
Guide: Not necessary
Tour Option: See above
Additional Info: part of the longer Munduk Waterfall trek, which starts at the Melanting Cottages, and visits 4 waterfalls all along the valley floor

Overview

After visiting two of the waterfalls on the Munduk Waterfall trek, you can spend some time enjoying a well deserved lunch. The good thing is that along the pathway towards the Red Coral waterfall (also known as the Munduk waterfall), there are warungs that serve food.

Have a nice lunch before continuing on with the day of waterfall trekking. You will just simply follow the pathway and signs straight until you reach the entrance of the Red Coral waterfall.

No need to head down any staircases here though. The waterfall will be right out in front of you with the greenery filled walls on either side.

If you are up for a little excitement, feel free to head into the pool underneath the waterfall for a swim.

Munduk Red Coral Waterfall

Golden Valley Waterfall

Region: Northern Bali
Parking Coordinates: 8°15’41.9″S 115°03’56.5″E
Entrance Fee: Free
Trek Distance: Full trek with stops 5-6 hours
Guide: Not necessary
Tour Option: See above
Additional Info: part of the longer Munduk Waterfall trek, which starts at the Melanting Cottages, and visits 4 waterfalls all along the valley floor

Overview

After finishing up at the Red Coral waterfall, you will need to follow the signs towards the Golden Valley waterfall / Eco Café. There are a couple intersection here, but as long as you pay attention to the pathways, you should be good to go.

Once you reach the waterfall, you can enjoy the view from above, and then make the short descent down to the waterfall itself. This is another waterfall, where you can decide to head into the water too if you are up for it.

You can then head up to the Eco Café for a drink and snack, and take in the relaxing view. It is then following the pathway up above the waterfall, and towards the main road. From there you can simply walk back to the starting point along the road or hope to catch a ride.

Banyumala Twin Waterfalls

Region: Northern Bali
Parking Coordinates: 8°13’03.2″S 115°06’13.7″E
Entrance Fee: $2 USD
Trek Distance: 15 Minutes
Guide: Not necessary
Tour Option: Banyumala Twin Waterfalls Tour
Additional Info: N/A

Overview

The Banyumala Twin Waterfalls located in Northern Bali are a great addition to a trip to the island. The waterfall is located just a few hundred meters from the parking lot, and down some stairs that will take you right to the waterfall itself.

Once you arrive, you will be welcomed to a double waterfall feature with water flowing down the greenery filled rock face.

It is a great spot to take a dip in the water too if you are up for a swim. Complete your time at the waterfall by following the trail a couple minutes down the river, where you can enjoy even more views of the twin falls and the surroundings.

Banyulama Twin Waterfalls

Aling Aling Waterfall

Region: Northern Bali
Parking Coordinates: 8°10’32.1″S 115°06’16.4″E
Entrance Fee: $9 USD (or $1.50 to just view the waterfalls)
Trek Distance: 30 minutes
Guide: Required
Tour Option: Aling Aling Waterfall Tour
Additional Info: A visit to Aling Aling is a bit more than just visiting a waterfall. Instead, you will get to visit 4 waterfalls all right next to each other, take part of some cliff jumping, and head down some natural waterfalls slides. Due to the more in depth visit, a guide is required to join you (hence the higher cost).

Overview

After arriving at the parking lot, you will be welcomed to a ticket booth that will have a few different trekking options. The standard route just heads to the 4 waterfalls, where you can take part of swimming, jumping, and sliding activities.

There are longer trekking options, where you can visit additional waterfalls and a lagoon for an extra fee. You can also just “view” the four waterfalls for a small fee if you don’t want to actually go into the water.

While Aling Aling is the name of the main waterfall in this area, it is really the other waterfalls and activities that make the day even that much better.

The first waterfall you will come by is the Kroya waterfall. Here you can enjoy a slide down the waterfall itself with the help of the local guide. Across from the waterfall, there is a platform to jump off of with Kroya in the background.

Next is the Kembar waterfall just a short walk away. There is also another smaller waterfall slide to take part of if you want to make the walk a bit more interesting.

The Kembar waterfall is 33 feet high and you can decide to go cliff jump off it or just walk down to the bottom to enjoy the view from below.

Last up is the 50 foot Pucuk waterfall, located just on the other side of Kembar. This is a pretty high jump to take part of and it is the highest of the bunch. Even if you don’t opt for the jump you can still enjoy the natural beauty of the area.

The day finishes up at the main attraction – Aling Aling waterfall. Just a 5 minute walk away from the initial waterfall area, you will find the 115 foot tall Aling Aling. Now, you aren’t allowed to do any jumping or swimming here, but you can enjoy the view from a far.

Sekumpul Waterfall

Region: Northern Bali
Parking Coordinates: 8°10’19.1″S 115°11’10.3″E
Entrance Fee: $15 for three waterfalls / $9 for two waterfalls / $1.50 for view only
Trek Distance: 3 Hours (for three waterfall option)
Guide: Required
Tour Option: Sekumpul Waterfall Tour
Additional Info: There are three options to choose from when you arrive at the entrance. Either just head to the viewpoint area above, visit the Sekumpul and Hidden waterfalls, or visit Sekumpul, Hidden, and Fiji waterfalls. I ended up going with the third option here.

Overview

First up is the Sekumpul viewpoint area. After a 20 minute walk from the parking lot you will be welcomed to a nice view of Sekumpul and the Fiji waterfall further out in the distance.

Here, your wristband will be scanned in order to go down further into the valley. Along the way to the Sekumpul waterfall, you will first stop by what is called the Hidden Waterfall, as it is “hidden” between the valley walls (more on that next).

Located just a few minutes away from the Hidden Waterfall is the main attraction – Sekumpul. Here you will find a massive two part waterfall flowing off of the cliffside down below.

You can enjoy some views from afar (and hop on one of the rocks for a photo op), and then head closer to the waterfall itself. Feel free to jump in the water and enjoy some time in the Sekumpul pool.

Sekumpul Waterfall Indonesia

Hidden Waterfall

Region: Northern Bali
Parking Coordinates: 8°10’19.1″S 115°11’10.3″E
Entrance Fee: $15 for three waterfalls / $9 for two waterfalls / $1.50 for view only
Trek Distance: 3 Hours (for three waterfall option)
Guide: Required
Tour Option: See above
Additional Info: If you bought either one of the tickets that visit Sekumpul waterfall, then the Hidden Waterfall will also be added onto your journey

Overview

During my visit to the Sekumpul waterfall region, my guide first took us to the Hidden Waterfall after visiting the aerial viewpoint area. Remember, there will be a bit of a trek down into the valley. Be sure to wear appropriate footwear and be ready to get wet along the way.

After getting yourself down into the valley, past a few more viewpoints, and through the lush greenery, you will be welcomed to the Hidden Waterfall. Here you will find a narrow waterfall sliding down the rock face into the pool down below.

If you are up for it, you can go for a swim in the pool beneath this waterfall. Once you are all wrapped up at the Hidden Waterfall, you will continue on with your journey to the remaining waterfalls in the valley.

Hidden Waterfall Bali

Fiji Waterfall

Region: Northern Bali
Parking Coordinates: 8°10’19.1″S 115°11’10.3″E
Entrance Fee: $15 for three waterfalls / $9 for two waterfalls / $1.50 for view only
Trek Distance: 3 Hours (for three waterfall option)
Guide: Required
Tour Option: See above
Additional Info: I broke Fiji out separately as it is not part of the standard Sekumpul ticket. However, I would recommend checking it out as it is a quieter but just as beautiful waterfall to visit.

Overview

Just a few minutes walk from the Sekumpul waterfall, you will find the triple Fiji waterfall. When it comes to waterfalls in Indonesia, you wont find many that offer this type of landscape.

Three waterfalls lined up one after the next in the lush Indonesian jungle. As many people who visit Sekumpul don’t venture to this area, it is a quieter and more relaxing experience to take part of.

If you are up for it, you can also hop into the pools underneath the waterfall and even put yourself right under the waterfall. Since it is not that powerful, it is safe enough to go under.

From Fiji, your guide will then take you up a different pathway out of the valley and back to the entrance to end your day.

Fiji Waterfall

Kanto Lampo Waterfall

Region: Ubud
Parking Coordinates: 8°31’55.2″S 115°19’52.3″E
Entrance Fee: $1.50
Trek Distance: 10 minutes
Guide: Not necessary
Tour Option: Kanto Lampo Waterfall Tour
Additional Info: since Kanto Lampo is just outside of Ubud, it can get quite crowded. I would recommend heading over to the waterfall right at the start of the day to avoid the crowds

Overview

The Kanto Lampo waterfall is one of the top waterfalls to visit during a trip to Bali. It is located just outside of Ubud and is the perfect addition to an Ubud itinerary. While there are other waterfalls near Ubud to visit, Kanto Lampo is certainly the most popular.

Due to this, try and visit the waterfall at the very beginning of the day before the crowds begin to form. You will find a completely different experience if visiting later on when hundreds of others descend upon the area.

Unlike the previous waterfalls mentioned on this list so far, Kanto Lampo waterfall is just a short walk away from the parking lot. After paying the entrance fee, continue down the stairs for a few minutes until you reach the area around the river.

Once you reach the river area, the multi-tiered waterfall will be right out in front of you. Be careful here but you can certainly climb up some of the rocks to position yourself safely on some of the waterfall tiers.

It is a very unique waterfall and photo op to enjoy that is not found at many other Bali waterfalls.
