Sekumpul waterfall is one of the most inspiring natural wonders in Bali and not easy to reach, but definitely worth the trip.
The hotel is 66 km north of Ubud and 76 km from Seminyak. It takes most of a day to drive (or drive) there and back. There are a number of local guides in the parking lot who are keen to use their services. To be honest, their support for this particular hike can be of great help as they know some hidden gems nearby. It takes about 45 minutes on foot from the parking lot to the waterfalls. Because of its popularity, the route is quite well marked.
It is the busiest between noon and 2 p.m. So if you are stopping on a day tour, I recommend going straight there when the traffic is lightest and before the crowd arrives. The waterfall flows all year round, but like all waterfalls in Bali, it gets quite intense in the wet months from December to March.
Make sure you have decent walking shoes as the route is quite steep in places and the rocks can be very slippery. Take your time, you don’t want to sprain your ankle so far from medical services.
Other than that, the Sekumpul waterfall is without a doubt one of my top 5 destinations in Bali. They are quite magical and the hike through the jungle is an adventure in itself. If you want to visit other waterfalls in this region, I also recommend Aling-Aling and Gitgit.
