Going To Bali, Indonesia?  In this installment of our Bali Travel Guide Series, we make a trip to enjoy the beauty of the Tegenungan Waterfalls.

We headed straight for the Tegenungan Waterfalls after a quick and unproductive tour of the Artisan Village.  Tegenungan Waterfalls is located in the Ubud (pronounced as wu-bood, we were told by our guide) region of Bali, a long drive from the Artisan Village.

Ubud is the place in Bali if you want to seriously get a get-away, because it is located in the centre of Bali, away from the touristy beaches and seemingly in the middle of the jungle. This is the place you should go to for some peace and quiet and some yoga and meditation.

Tegenungan Waterfalls – Must See in Bali

Finally reached the Tegenungan Waterfalls. The Tegenungan Waterfalls, like most of the other natural attractions in Bali, charges an ‘entrance fee’ at the point of vehicle entry. If you happen to have a local guide as we do, he probably would be able to ‘negotiate’ a one-for-one deal for you (that means paying half price).  This is our first view of the Tegenungan Waterfalls at the viewing platform.

Hike to Tegenungan Waterfalls

The Tegenungan Waterfalls looked very far away from the viewing platform, but we shamelessly asked our guide if he could bring us for a hike to the waterfall, despite knowing that we have a tight schedule for the day.


To our surprise, he readily agreed.  Turns out that the hike was only very short (about 10 minutes) although the distance looked far. But there were a lot of steps and climbing to do, so a fair amount of fitness is needed.

That’s how near we got to the waterfall.  A bit of careful navigation around the rocks and slippery mud was needed to avoid falling into the water. But yes, we got there all safe and sound.

The waterfall was certainly no where near the mighty Niagara Falls, but it was still enough to warrant the hike.

That’s the little stream that the waterfalls flows off into.

We stayed at the Tegenungan Waterfalls for only about half an hour before moving off quickly to our next destination – Tirtha Empul (Holy Spring Temple).
