Tegenungan Waterfall, Bali, Indonesia (with Map & Photos)

Tegenungan Waterfall

Tegenungan Waterfall is probably the most famous waterfall in Bali and also one of the most visited. Even so, the visit and the bathroom are highly recommended. The waterfall falls with great force and it is not allowed to get under the jet because sometimes it carries stones or sediment and you could have an accident. The bathing area is limited by a rope.

Along the descent (165 steps) and in the Tegenungan Waterfall itself you will find a multitude of swings and nests to take photos and they are free, something that is not seen every day in Bali.

Right at the top going up other stairs there are several impressive clubs with music and swimming pools as you can see in the video that are also incredible and not excessively expensive to eat or have a drink after enjoying the waterfalls, that if you have to pay 1, € 20 to go up but it is well worth it.
