Tegenungan Waterfall Bali

It's not easy to get there, but the view is good. Tegenungan waterfall is located at Tegenungan Village, 5 kilometres south of Tengkulak Kaja, south east Ubud. 

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, 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 waterfall it self is not really that high. Only approximately 10-15metres high. Cemented pathway, but quite steep to climb up back to the parking area.

During the holiday season this place also visited by many local tourists around Gianyar, Denpasar and Klungkung. Each visitor entrance fee is cheap. Just Rp.4,000 for adults and Rp 2,000 for children.
