Gitgit waterfall is probably Bali’s most popular waterfall that you can reach on a relatively easy trek via a wooden boardwalk over a small gorge and past cool streams. The trek is part of the overall experience as you enter a soothing rainforest accompanied by the sounds of nature and rushing water.
The falls are a 10-km drive south of North Bali’s main town of Singaraja or an 80-km drive north from Kuta in south Bali. The waterfall is accessible from the main road connecting Bedugul and Singaraja. The 40-metre-tall cascade constantly pours into a rocky pool with a small shrine that ‘guards’ the site. You can enjoy a cool plunge in the rocky pool, and its water flows all year round. Read More...

The Sekumpul waterfall is actually a cluster of 6 to 7 narrow cascades in the namesake village of Sekumpul in North Bali. They're a cool centrepiece set among a lush green framing of bamboo forests. Discovering the falls calls for an adventurous hike through the village. The route to get there comprises dirt tracks, a hundred or so steps and some crossings over streams.
A trek leads you to purpose-built gazebos, from where you can cool down and catch your breath while enjoying the view of the majestic 80-metre-tall fall from a distance. Another forest and village trail leads you down to the rock pool base of the falls. This includes traversing down more steps. Along your journey, you'll enjoy nature sights with a combination of rice paddies, durian, rambutan and coffee plantations. Read More...

The Munduk and Melanting waterfalls are among Bali’s most scenic natural landmarks. Getting to the waterfalls require a scenic trek down a forested path. Getting there is a great part of the whole experience. Lush views of the surrounding nature with occasional wildlife and exotic bird sightings accompany your descent.
At the base of the Munduk falls, cool mists and the rushing sound of water engulfs your senses. You can head to the rocky pool at the falls’ base for a refreshing dip. The Melanting waterfall is only a short trek north from Munduk, which offers similar features. Try a lush forest trail up from the falls, passing small streams and a bridge. From here, you can catch a beautiful glimpse over the fall’s peak. Read More...

Tegenungan is one of the nearest large waterfalls that you can visit from Bali’s popular southern resort areas such as Kuta and Sanur. It’s even closer if you’re coming from Ubud. Getting to the falls is a pleasant drive down paved village roads lined with stretches of green rice fields on both sides. The site is also well-facilitated.
There's ample parking and rows of small local shops selling snacks and souvenirs. The impressively green valley panorama with cascading water serves as a centrepiece. You can take in the views from up close at the vast pebbly base. You can take a dip in the plunge pool most of the time, except during heavy rain when flash floods become a risk. Read More...

Singsing Waterfall is well tucked away up in the forested hills of the Cempaga village in Banjar, North Bali. It's about 50 km west of the town hub and main beach resort areas of North Bali such as Lovina. To get there, you’ll need to take a 20-minute walk through rural countryside and along a moderate forest trail. Its name roughly translates to ‘daybreak waterfall’.
Singsing offers a pleasant nature break from the Lovina crowds. Best time to go is during the wet season (October through April) when the waterfall pours into a rocky pool. A narrow trail over the waterfall leads you to a spacious upper creek. Here, you'll find lava stone pools that you can soak in. Read More...
