Here is my in depth Bali waterfall guide for you.
Today I invite you to show you the best air terjun in Bali. What is an air terjun? That’s Balinese for waterfall! Bali is filled with so many beautiful and refreshing waterfalls that it is hard to count them all: more are discovered every year. From popular Bali waterfalls that are easy to reach, to secluded gems that are more challenging to access, there is a waterfall in Bali that will captivate and enthral everyone. With so many to visit it can be hard to choose, so here is my Bali waterfall guide for the best air terjun on the island.
The first thing you should do when you want to visit waterfalls in Bali is decide ahead of time which ones you plan on visiting. There are waterfalls within easy reach of Denpassar and Ubud, as well as ones much further out, so your choice will determine how much time you need to allow, what to bring, and so on. You can easily find the majority of Bali waterfalls on Google maps, and can then use it to calculate travel times and routes.
When visiting any of the Bali waterfalls, make sure to bring the following:
- Good walking shoes/sandals
- Tracks can be steep, and rocks can be slippery, so having sturdy, reliable footwear is essential.
- Insect repellant
- Waterfalls are found in rainforests that teem with mosquitoes and other annoying insects, so take something to keep them away.
- Swimming clothes
- After all that walking, you’ll want to cool off in the waters.
- Sun protection
- Sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, etc.
- Extra clothes
- You’ll most likely be hit with water spray from the falls, so having a spare set of clothes is recommended.
- Camera with waterproof protection
- For those amazing shots!
- Snacks and drinking water
- Some locations do not offer any beverages or food.
If traveling from Denpasar the closest waterfalls are only 20 minutes away, while if you plan on going further out to waterfalls like Gitgit and Banyumala allow at least 100 minutes for travel.
Many of these waterfalls will require a fee to enter, usually around IDR 10,000-30,000. Many waterfalls are popular spots for swimming and cliff jumping in Bali, but even if you prefer to just soak up the scenery you will be sure to leave satisfied. It is recommended that you put a few days aside to truly experience the wonders of Bali’s air terjun.
