How much time / When to visit
In terms of visiting Nungnung Waterfall, it would be best to leave yourself a half-day to get the most out of the trip.
I would recommend leaving early in the morning or after 3pm as this is your best chance of seeing the sunshine angelically through the tropical forest and onto the falls. Although this would be the ideal time to visit, Nungnung waterfall is never too crowded. As one of the less ‘touristy’ falls in Bali, you should have plenty of opportunities for that Instagram-worthy snap.
Where to stay
If you are looking to visit Nungnung Waterfall, the most popular place to stay for most backpackers is Ubud, the cultural hub of Bali. Ubud has a variety of options in terms of accommodation. Depending on your budget you can choose between luxury spa resorts or more affordable Homestays or Airbnbs; both allowing guests to experience all that Ubud has to offer.
Personally, we chose an Airbnb just north of the center of Ubud. We had a fantastic experience, with some great hosts and even a wonderful infinity pool.
Why should Nungnung Waterfall be on your bucketlist?
