Bali is home to many gorgeous waterfalls. We have only been to one, Tegenungan, a 30 minutes drive from Seminyak.
In 2015, one day when we had booked a car for a day trip to Ubud to see the rice fields, we decided to make a visit to Tegenungan Waterfall. One of many waterfalls in Bali, but one of the few that are not located up in the mountains. In stead of walking up to the waterfall, you will have to walk down – hundreds of steps.
Big and many steps leading down to the waterfall. Make sure you have enough time. In particular if you travel with small children. And if you can, go there in the morning, before it gets too hot.
Walking down is one thing. Going up is much harder. These local workers ran up and down several times during our short stay.
It does not take many steps before the waterfall appears in all its beauty.
PS: Make sure to bring cash. There is an entrance fee. In 2015 we paid 10,000 IDR per person.
The waterfall was beautiful, although not as powerful as we had thought. The water level was also low. We had seen pictures of people taking a swim in the water below, but it was far too little when we came.

Walking back up after a 30 minute visit.
Walking up is a good exercise in it self. Small shops have water, sodas, beer and snacks. Just as long as you remember to bring cash.
