Bali is always known for zillions of beautiful beaches and fancy beach clubs spread around the coastline. Yet, little do people know that the further they stray from the coastline, the more they will find natural gems in forms of beautiful Bali waterfalls waiting to be discovered. Here are 9 most beautiful waterfalls in Bali to add to your next Bali bucket list.
Sekumpul Waterfall, Singaraja
Hidden in the village of Sekumpul, Singaraja (nearly two and a half hour from Denpasar), seven waterfalls of Sekumpul spill wavering amount of waters from seven different heights and orchestrate a harmonious song of nature. Those waterfalls are located deep in the woods with challenging treks leading to the spot where they ‘gather’ as the name might suggest in local tongue. Often hailed as Bali’s best waterfall, Sekumpul is beautiful not only to view from distance but also to admire from close range.
Tegenungan Waterfall, Ubud
Located in Ubud’s remote village, Tegenungan is a unique Bali waterfall due to its location—not in mountainous area. Surrounded with lush vegetation and fresh local jungle air, the waterfall is a beautiful natural water spring with strong currents and abundant debits of water which makes this place a perfect place for natural bathing. If you’re in one-day excursion to Ubud, visiting Tegenungan waterfall can be your final destination after visiting several famous temples (e.g., Gunung Kawi and Tirta Empul) and Ubud Monkey Forest.
Tibumana Waterfall, Bangli
Known as Bali’s best waterfall and best kept secret, Tibumana in Bangli is a hidden gem surrounded by luscious garden with exotic birds and butterflies around. The fall itself falls into a shallow pool, yet the rumble is thundering even from miles away. When the water debit is high, the water falls into twin columns, yet, in dry season, it only falls into one column. To keep in mind, its serene surrounding makes sure that guests can take beautiful pictures without distraction.
Kanto Lampo Waterfall, Gianyar
The ‘new’ Bali waterfall called Kanto Lampo, which is located 12 kilometers east of Ubud, was ‘made’ in 2015. Water strongly falls against naturally unique foundation of rocks, which makes it a great scene to witness. The location looks as if the whole perimeter is taken directly from ancient folktales with jungle atmosphere and natural caves. What makes this fall different from other waterfalls in Bali is the fact that it shares the same water sources with local irrigation system; therefore, when irrigation is on session, there’s no water flowing through the fall.
Tukad Cepung Waterfall, Bangli
Tukad Cepung is a definition of virgin waterfall, which is located 30 kilometers north-west of Ubud. Natural constructions of cliffs and rock formation hide the waterfall from plain eyes. The whole location looks like a sanctuary inside a cave with sizzling sounds of water echoing around. Tukad Cepung feels like an ideal place to be the king of summer or simply to meditate with great peace and comforting force.
Nung-Nung Waterfall, Petang
In Pelaga (around 90 minutes from Denpasar), the thunderously rumbling Bali waterfall stands tall at 500 meters. With lovely green view around the surrounding and carpet of rice fields preceding it, Nung-Nung waterfall is a loud beauty. To access it, visitors need to walk a long descent before finally witnessing water spurring out to stun eyes.
