Bali Waterfall Tour: Day 1

Wake up early for the start of your packed two-day Bali waterfall tour. One will be harder to reach than the other, for that reason, the hardest hikes are planned in the early morning. Wear good shoes and your swimsuit and finally bring a towel and drinking water in a reusable bottle.

Nungnung Waterfall

First up, Nungnung Waterfall, An extremely powerful waterfall about 45 minutes north from Ubud. The 509-steps walk down is a tough one to do back up, therefore, arrive around 8 AM so you can chill, have a swim in the pool of the waterfall and hike back up slowly. The stairs are well maintained and a straight forward path.

The entrance ticket costs 10,000 IDR (~ 0.8 USD). 
Good to know: During the rainy season, do not shower under the waterfall as natural waste like rocks and tree branches might fall down the stream.

➳ Add this trip to your 3-week Bali Route.

Leke Leke Waterfall

The relatively unknown Leke Leke Waterfall is a 30-minute drive from Nung Nung. It is an easy and beautiful 15-minute walk down through the Bali jungle crossing rivers by bamboo bridge towards a secluded waterfall.


The relatively small waterfall is surrounded by a huge amount of colorful flowers and plants which gives this waterfall in Bali its own unique look. A ticket to Leke Leke costs 30,000 IDR which is used for maintenance of the area. 

Banyumala Twin Waterfall

Make your way to the cooler Munduk area, where the Banyumala Twin Waterfall is located. The waterfall is split into two falls, pouring down into a large pool which is great to swim and relax. Expect this waterfall to be a bit busier but due to the large area and a second waterfall hidden in the back, you can easily have your own space of relaxation. The drive from Leke Leke takes around 60 minutes followed by a good 10-minute walk down. 

Spend the first night of your Bali Waterfall Tour in Munduk, a pleasant and super chilled town near the Banyumala Twin Waterfall.

Sekumpul Waterfall – Best of Bali Waterfall Tour

Arguably the most incredible waterfall Bali has to offer: Sekumpul Waterfall. Water dropping from a height of 80 meters down into the refreshing natural pool. The relatively long but easy walking trail through the forest takes you to a jaw-dropping panoramic viewpoint. Finally, a 15-minute walk down brings you to the foot of the most epic location of the Bali waterfall tour.

Start driving from Munduk at 8 AM, as it is harder to reach and lesser-known, Sekumpul won’t be so busy before noon. The entrance ticket to Sekumpul is 250,000 IDR which includes a guide, a second waterfall, and drinking water. It is a high price but totally worth it, however, a guide and getting a plastic water bottle is not necessary at all.

➳ Read our easy tips on how to travel plastic-free.


Aling Aling Waterfall

Aling Aling is different from all the other waterfalls in the Bali waterfall tour as it has natural water slides and jumping points. Aling Aling itself is sacred water and is not allowed to swim in but there are loads of other waterfalls down the trail where you can but a guide is allowed to do so. Sekumpul to Aling Aling is a 45-minute drive.

Git Git Waterfall

Let’s hope you still have some energy left for the last waterfall of the tour. Git Git is a popular waterfall and easy to reach due to its location next to the road. It is possible to swim in the pools in front or get a refreshing shower under it. Aling Aling to Git Git is a short 35-minute drive. The entrance fee to this waterfall is 20,000 IDR. 

Bali Waterfall Tour Price

The total amount for two days including transfer to your hotel is 1.500.000 IDR (~$106). A one-day waterfall tour costs 750.000 IDR. Split that over the 4 people in one car and it is super affordable. Our driver Yande is an amazing guy and you should contact him and tell him you want to do the same waterfall route as Nick & Hannah from Salt in our Hair. He knows where to take you. ➳ Contact Yande and his team here

Please keep in mind that the entrance fees are not included and if you do a two-day tour, an additional 250.000 IDR is required to cover his accommodation costs.

  • Hello I’m so curious to know what’s the name of that red leaves that grow near waterfall?
    I really appreciate you answer me

  • Parth Parekh

    We are staying in central Ubud in the first week of May 2020. We are planning to see the waterfalls in the North Bali area as suggested by you. Just wanted your inputs on whether the flow of water will be strong to enjoy the waterfalls as from what i have read it does not rain much in the month of May

    • Salt in our Hair

      Hi Parth, that’s right but April is the end of rain season so there should be enough water. Enjoy.

  • Hi, which waterfalls would I miss if I just did the one day waterfall tour?

  • Bali looks like such a dream, I would absolutely LOVE to go there. It’s one of those destinations that you see so much on Instagram that it’s hard to actually believe it’s that gorgeous in real life! I love these pics though, it’s made me want to visit even more! :)

  • I love this post! Your blog is extremely insightful. Im staying in North Kuta this December and have been looking for a northern Bali waterfall tour company. Do you know of any good tour companies? I know that the eastern waterfalls will be packed due to high season, so we’re trying to get out as far as possible. I want to enjoy nature with the least amount of people lol. Thank you in advance!

    • Salt in our Hair

      Thanks Kay! We are actually updating this guide upcoming weekend with rewritten content and new images so keep an eye on that. You really have to contact our friend Yande for a waterfall tour. He is the best and actually does this trip weekly with our readers.

  • Hi! I really love this guide! I’m planning on following your 3-week Indonesia guide and was hoping to add this in. At what point in that guide would you recommend adding this in? Thanks so much!

    • Salt in our Hair

      Thanks Kate! We would put it in as day 11-14. Tie the waterfall route in with your time in Ubud. Have an amazing trip :)

      • This is lovely and my kids are excited when they see the photos. I’m wondering whether any1 of these places is suitable for 5-12year old kids to trek?

        • Salt in our Hair

          Hi, yes Leke Leke and Banyumala are good walks but definitely doable for your kids. Enjoy!

  • Nick, Hannah. You’ve made us book Bali for our honeymoon! What a country.. we’ve read all your blog posts, fallen in love with your images and cannot wait to go. The waterfalls are definitely on the list to visit.

  • Is the route dangerous with the motorcycle?
    Amazing pictures and useful tips on your website.

    • saltinourhair

      It is doable by motorbike if you’re an advanced driver. Be extra careful when you’re planning to do this is rainy season though, the roads can get very slippery.
      Keep in mind the distances between all these waterfalls are quite long so maybe it better to spread them over 3 days if you want to go by motorbike :)

      Thank you so much!

  • Thank you for this! We have contacted the driver and are going to do the day 2 waterfalls next week when we’re in bali :)

    • saltinourhair

      So great, enjoy! Say Hi to him! We’re flying to Java at the moment and will be on Bali again within two weeks.

  • What time of year did you guys do this route?
    I’m heading over in late October and wondering if there will be much water?

  • Sorry my question had no sense I though it was 2 night got confused but now I get it. I wanted to change maybe keep one day waterfall and do the Mount Batur as it’s near munduk and only one or 2 in the way back look very nice what do u think with waterfalls should I skip ?

  • Hi I would like to know if the other way around work second day sleep in lavina and the 1 day sleep in munduk then head to Ubud friend of mine told me there is a lot to do in Ubud like 6 nights then to Nusa as Gili not and option for 4 to 5 night then ulawatu

  • Erik Schaumann

    You guys have one of the best designed, and best informed travel blogs that I’ve read in a long time. I wish you success, and I’ll keep reading! We’re going to do this waterfall trek tour!

  • Mohammed Mandil

    Awesome route, loved it. Thanks!

  • Praharsha Fonseka

    Hi Guys,
    This post was really helpful and thanks to you guys my wife and I met Yande and went to see all these waterfalls with him last week! We’ve been to Bali twice now and without a doubt this was the best tour we’ve been on! The waterfalls were so damn beautiful and I’m so glad we had Yande with us to take us to these not-so-popular waterfalls in North Bali! I’d recommend this to anyone who’d be planning to visit Bali in the future!

  • Kirsten Kreekels

    Such a great blog. I wanne do this exact waterfal trip this summer. Is it hard to find a driver who will take you there and where does he stay when we stay in Munduk? What is a normal price for a driver for 2 days?

    • saltinourhair

      Hi Kirsten!

      Sorry for the late reply.

      Contact Yande from and tell him you want to do the same waterfall route as Nick & Hannah from Salt in our Hair. He will know where to take you!

      The total amount was 1.150.000 IDR (~$80). You can split this with others in the taxi. 100% worth it.

  • amazing place!!!thank for your share it.

  • Steeven le voyageur

    I am currently in bali! I will for sure try this!

  • Travis Allen

    Hey guys,
    Great post and love the format of your website. I’m in Lovina now and looking forward to taking in the couple of these I haven’t seen yet. Keep up the great content!

    • saltinourhair

      Hi Travis,
      Thanks so much!
      Ahh so cool you’re in Lovina now. Unfortunately we didn’t had time to visit Lovina. Do you recommend going there? :)

      Enjoy your travels!!

  • the waterfalls are very tempting:D may i know if there’s any package or tour guide for this route?

  • andybachtiar

    Hey thanks for sharing my shot man haha

  • Anonymous Wanderer

    It is indeed legitimate to say the waterfall is magnificent, but the precise time to catch the rainbow is priceless. I have been there for several times and the venue is perfect for having a peaceful retreat from whatever it is to be your stress in life.

    See ya guys in other sublime environment around the earth.

    • saltinourhair

      You’re so right! It’s is such a magical place!

      • We went to Sekumpul a week ago. The three waterfalls there are amazing. But they force everyone to get a guide and make us paying 200.000 Rupiah per person. There was no way to bargain. That’s a pity. It must have changed after you went.
        For us it was still worth it.
        At Git Git they start to sell us a guide as well, but luckily we could get out of this. The entrance fee was 20.000 Rupiah.

        • Yes, that is right. It is about 200 kk, but it is because they want to support local people and villages near waterfalls. We had the guides (Sekumpul and Aling Aling) – young students, they were very nice, they told us many interesting things. I think it is not bad idea!

        • Salt in our Hair

          Hi Robert,

          Thanks for letting us know! We’ll do some more research on this and update the prices :) Glad you still enjoyed the waterfalls!

  • around what time did u get to the waterfall to catch the rainbow ?
    ?all ur picts . THaaaankkss a looottt for the information , .. God Bless & Successfull ?????

    • SaltinourHair

      Hi Ireney!
      We got to the Sekumpul Waterfall around 2pm. The Waterfall appeared when the sun started to shine?
      Thanks for your sweet words <3

  • Did you’ll visit the waterfalls in munduk twice?

  • The waterfall is a great adventure for any traveler. That place is very interesting. Now I am 42 years old. When I am the child than I play in the waterfall. My home side a big waterfall. My many times spends in there. That was my childhood history. It is the reminder of my childhood. Thanks for sharing your great post. I really enjoy this post.

    • saltinourhair

      Thanks for your lovely comment Emma! It sounds like you had a wonderful childhood. In which country/area did you grow up? Very curious about that waterfall!?

  • Mikey & Chrissie - Aswetravl

    Love this post guys. Can’t believe how many waterfalls there are in Bali – excited to get exploring them!
