Bali has a selection of waterfalls that are fun to visit. For many people the idea of hiking through the jungle to a hidden waterfall and taking a cooling swim is the image of paradise. These places definitely exist and here are some useful tips of how to find them and what to expect. Waterfalls are sharp drops along the course of a river. You will often have to hike up or down a river for a certain way to get to a waterfall, but the river provides a route for you to follow.Rivers flow best during and immediately after the wet season, meaning Nov-Apr. During that time you can expect waterfalls to be pumping and the pools at the bottom to be at their deepest. You can also expect more debris including rocks and the occasional log to come over the waterfall. Wet season means cloudy days in the highlands especially and after getting a soaking from the rain, the cold mountain water can be quite a shock. Bathing in a waterfall during the wet season may not feel like tropical paradise at first. During the dry season the weather is better, sunny and dry. However water flow is way less and pools will be shallow. The amount of tourists a waterfall will get often depends on how close it is to a main road and how far you have to hike to get to it. Visiting a waterfall can be a pleasant pit-stop on a road-trip across Bali.
Its located at the village of Kemenuh. There are 2 ways to get to the waterfall. Go 0.5km west from Blahbatuh, turning south at the next junction. Look out for a sign for the Waterfall Restaurant. This way will put you on the same side of the steep river valley as the waterfall and bungee tower. The best view is from the other bank, which can be accessed by driving 1km west from Blahbatuh towards Kemenuh village. Signs indicate the direction of the waterfall. If lost ask a local.
