Bali Waterfall Guide – The Best Waterfalls in Bali

If you’re looking for a waterfall to blow your mind, Bali is the right place to come. With so many waterfalls to explore, you will have a blast taking an adventure hunting all the waterfalls and jumping on in for a refreshing swim! In Indonesian, the word for waterfall is “air tejun”, so therefore, Nungnung Waterfall would be Air Tejun Nungun. All the waterfalls are located north of Denpasar, with Ubud being central to many, but not the only location for waterfalls as there is so many all over the island.

Batu Lantang Waterfall

If you are looking to get off the beaten path, this waterfall is for you! Let’s just call this one the secret waterfall that is located just over an hour north of places like Ubud and Canggu. When we arrived where our Google offline maps told us this destination was, we found ourselves in a rundown soccer field. Luckily, a local walked by and he pointed us down the correct trail, which is to the left at the end of the soccer field. When we got down after a short trek through the jungle, it was only us and four other tourists that had come with a private local guide. The guide asked us how we found this place because it is still relatively unknown yet equally as beautiful as a waterfall like Nungnung.

Nungnung Waterfall

Nungung is a beautiful waterfall that will leave you impressed.  Also located about an hour north from places such as Ubud and Canggu, this waterfall is surrounded by a rock wall flourishing with plant life making it a stunning sight to see. This waterfall is truly powerful, resulting in a large spray of mist so watch that you don’t hold your electronics out for too long before jumping in to cool off!

Tukad Cepung Waterfall


This waterfall can top the adventurous destination list as it literally falls into a cave area that you walk into from the other end. Take off your shoes as you walk through the shallow river and over rocks to get to the falls. This one is really a sight to see and super cool to stand under and feel the water falling on you!

Tegungan Waterfall


This waterfall is possibly the most touristic in all of Bali. This may be a turn off for you, or not, however, barely anybody goes swimming in it because they are all busy taking pictures. If you can ignore the crowd and want to see a waterfall close to Ubud, this is a pretty waterfall, but if you are exploring many, you will not feel like you missed out.

Sekumpul Waterfall

A large and absolutely stunning waterfall in Bali that is located far up in the north of the island and for this reason, we never made it out to this waterfall. On the day we planned to visit the three beautiful waterfalls in the north, Sekumpul, Gitgit, and Aling-Aling, we woke up to torrential rain, and never managed to setup another date to head up there. However, this place looks absolutely beautiful!

Gitgit Waterfall

As mentioned above, we never got the chance to make it out here. Yet, this is another stunning waterfall, and definitely one you won’t want to miss if you go waterfall hunting in the north of Bali. Let us know how it is!

Aling-Aling Waterfall

This one has been on our radar for a while because of the fact that it has a natural waterfall slide you get to slide down and fall into the pool below. Make us jealous and let us know how it is!
