How to get to Tukad Cepung Waterfall

You can reach the waterfall easily from any place in the south and the center of Bali and enjoy a ride there which is almost as beautiful as the waterfall itself.

Another opportunity is going there by Taxi which is more expensive but still quite cheap. Once you’re there and payed a small fee at the entry, you need to hike about 30-40 minutes to reach the well hidden waterfall.

It is necessary to climb around huge rocks to reach this beautiful natural sight which makes it not only absolutely beautiful but also quite adventurous.

I combined the journey to the waterfall with cruising along the beautiful rice fields in Bali with my scooter. This is simply the best way to get around the whole island: cheap, easy, fun and giving the opportunity to get to know to Bali’s nature, culture and locals who are always happy to help you finding your way, just switch your phone off and talk to them!

You have to pay about 3000 Rupiah (about 0,30$) to enter the area. This should be the only cents you have to pay except of transportation costs and food.

It is not necessary to book a tour to Tukad Cepung and I think it is not even possible because this waterfall is an absolutely secret tip, I spent there about 5 hours without meeting anybody else!

Where to stay

You can reach Tukad Cepung from any part of Bali.

I stayed in Ubud, an inspiring and spiritual place which I will never forget. I can highly recommend Wayans Family Homestay, run by a very welcoming family offering delicious free banana pancakes every morning!

When is the best time to visit Tukad Cepung

There are no crowds you have to avoid, so you can just choose the time you want to go there. I went here in the beginning of April with a few rain drops from time to time. However the weather put this place in an even more magic light!
