ULTIMATE GUIDE TO VISIT SOME WATERFALLS IN BALI
Waterfalls in Bali are very popular tourist attractions and while many are accessible, easy to find with well-trodden paths and steps, others require some planning and are more difficult to reach via jungle trails and descending slippery steps. This is the ultimate guide to the best Bali waterfalls, including location maps, entrance fees, safety tips, links to my recommended itineraries, and advice on when to pay for local guides or travel independently.
The first thing you need to know is the term Air Terjun, which means waterfall in Balinese and is often used on signposts when they occur occasionally. Some of the waterfalls are very close to the tourist enclaves Seminyak and Kuta, such as Tegenungan. The more spectacular ones like Aling-Aling and Gitgit are located in North Bali near Singaraja and it’s quite a long trip if you start your tour from South Bali.
Secure Tips when Visiting Waterfalls In Bali;
- Don’t underestimate how slippery the paths and rocks around the waterfalls can be. The most common injuries are people sliding on the rocks.
- Make sure that the water level rises when it rains. Particularly during the rainy season (December – March), heavy rains can cause the rivers to swell and make access to some waterfalls very dangerous, especially those that are accessible via gorges.
- Travel light, but wear good walking shoes or sandals and change clothes, as some are expected to get the spray a little wet and others wade through the riverbed.
- Some of the waterfalls can be accessed independently, usually for an entrance fee, others are best accessed with the help of a local guide. In fact, some can only be found with a local guide!
