Top 5 Waterfalls in Bali You Must Visit
While there are many Most of us will have those white sandy beaches and sun in our head when we heard the name of this paradise island, Bali. This is true, Bali is very famous for its beautiful beaches, not to mention the hidden beaches the locals are trying to hide from the tourists to keep the beaches unique and untouched. I am going to write an article about this too. However, first, lets put the spotlight to these top 5 waterfalls in Bali you might want to visit. Less adventurous, you ought to read my article on 8 Hidden Gems in Bali, too if you are planning to visit Bali soon.
The reasons why waterfalls are less popular among the tourist is that often, it is hidden and quite challenging to reach the area. Some slippery stones stairs can be challenging for some people, especially when it comes to the time to go back to the civilization. All I can tell you is it is worth it! Moreover, let me start with the list of top 5 waterfalls in Bali I think you must visit.
1. The NungNung Waterfall
The NungNung Waterfall is located in the village of NungNung which is not further than 45 kilometers from Denpasar. A big sign will be able to be spotted on the side of the road. It is possible to visit this place with the car because a safe carpark is available.
Entrance ticket will need to be purchased on site, but it will be not more than one euro. You will find the ticket counter easily just before you have to start with 500 steps descending to the waterfalls. The Nungnung waterfall is around 50 meters high from the pool. A worthy picture site surrounded with greenery and rice fields.
2. Banyumala Waterfall
When you think that after 500 steps going down to the NungNung waterfall and going up again to get to your car is easy. This beautiful Banyumala Waterfall will not make it easier for you to enjoy and capturing its beauty. Warning: Get a trustworthy local to take you to this waterfall and leave your high heels at your hotel. You can find the Banyumala waterfall in the Wanagiri area near the Lake Buyan, Desa Pakraman Wanagiri, Kec. Sukasada, Sambangan, Kec. Buleleng, Buleleng, Bali.
3. Sekumpul Waterfalls
Not one, not two, what about seven waterfalls? Sekumpul which means groups in my mother language Indonesian is used to name these seven waterfalls in one site. Even though I add the Sekumpul waterfalls on number three in this top 5 waterfalls in Bali list, I heard that this might be the most beautiful waterfall in Bali. Beauty is always in the eyes of the beholder, right?
The Sekumpul Waterfalls are quite well-known but with its challenging terrain, many tourists are escaping this amazing place and stayed on their beach bed all day. If you decided to visit this beauty, all you need to do is travel to Singaraja, and it will take approximately two hours, and this place is well signed on the side of the road. If you do not want to go all the way down to the pool, ask locals for a spot where you will be able to see the waterfalls from higher ground, but after two hours drive, who want that? We want to get wet, right? The ticket will not be that expensive to get a helps to get to the pool but, as always, there will be locals that want to earn just a little bit more Euros. So be wise, 10 Euro is almost too much.
4. Kanto Lampo Waterfall
We are at number four but really, it is hard to short the list down to five only. So many waterfalls and all of them have their charms. Let’s go to Gianyar where this Kanto Lampo Waterfall located which is not far away from Denpasar. With admission, only 5000 Indonesian Rupiah and this newly born waterfall is a good alternative and easy to reach. This site is located at the Banjar Kelod Kangin, Beng village at Gianyar sub-district, which is just 12 kilometers from the famous Ubud Palace. The best way to reach is via the Ida Bagus Mantra By-Pass in less than an hour drive.
5. Peguyangan Waterfall
We are going to leave the big island Bali for a while and heading to the Nusa Penida island which is a short speedboat trip away from Padang Bay. Moreover, yes, Nusa Penida is still part of Bali. Nusa Penida and two others small islands, Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan are also known as The Maldives of Bali. Not similar to previously named waterfalls in the jungle, this Peguyangan waterfall is series of short, cascading spring fountains over the ravine before the sweet fresh water dripping down into the sea. When the waterfall is not enough, at the same site you will be treated with an infinity pool where the water is collected in a basin before flowing to the sea. As the last one on the list of the top 5 waterfalls in Bali, this waterfall is for sure not the least. A must visit place for sure.
