A visit to North Bali isn’t complete without a trip to some of the best Bali waterfalls. I have compiled a list of some of my favorites on the island, as well as information you’ll need on how to get there, entrance fees, and hike distances.
A Guide to the Best Bali Waterfalls
The three Munduk waterfalls are located relatively close together, making them a great Bali waterfalls day trip. If you are arriving with a driver then I’d recommend having him/her drop you on the road above the Munduk Waterfall, and from there you can continue on to the next falls and eventually end up in Munduk Village. Along the way you can stop at Munduk Waterfall (Air Terjun Munduk), Melanting Waterfall, and Labuhan Kebo Waterfall, among others. These Bali waterfalls are some of lesser known, so you often have the entire fall to yourself!
It takes 2-3 hours to visit the Bali waterfalls in this area, with a decent amount of hiking between them, so I would make sure to wear proper shoes, sunscreen, and bug spray. Make sure to grab a map of the area as well, as the paths can be a bit confusing at times.
Cost: 10,000-20,000 IDR per waterfall
Git Git Waterfall
GitGit Waterfall is easily one of my favorite Bali waterfalls. Just a 15 minute walk from the main road, this Bali waterfall is rather easy to access. You’ll find shop vendors selling soft drinks and souvenirs along the route as well, which is perfect if you need an ice cream to cool down.
Cost: 20,000 IDR
Aling Aling + Kroya Waterfalls
The Aling Aling waterfalls are actually comprised of two different falls, the largest being Aling Aling itself. When you follow the path up you first come across Kroya Waterfall. This Bali waterfall has gained a lot of attention recently from adventure seekers as you have a number of cliff jumping points. If you’re not keen on jumping, after the view point you can make your way down a set of stair on the side to experience the falls from the bottom.
Aling Aling is a bit further up the road and considerably less crowded. The falls are truly massive! You can’t swim here but there are steps that lead right to the base. Prepare for a little spray!
Cost: 10,000 IDR for viewing only (NO SWIMMING), 125,000 IDR + for a trekking guide (this is necessary if you want to swim or jump)
Where to Stay to Visit the North Bali Waterfalls
In order to comfortably visit these waterfalls I would recommend basing yourself in Munduk. Up in the hills you’ll be able to appreciate the cool mornings and rolling hills, with all of the best Bali waterfalls at your fingertips. Otherwise, day trips are possible from central areas of Ubud and Canggu if you are willing to spend a little extra time on the road.
Luxury – Mundunk Moding Plantation – Not only one of the best hotels in Munduk, but quite possibly in all of Bali. The infinity pool overlooking the mountains at sunrise is an experience not to be missed!
