As soon as you pass the entrance sign there’s a great viewpoint to the left although it’s usually pretty crowded! The view you get looks something like this.

Tegenungan Waterfall Bali Viewpoint

Tegenungan Waterfall is one of the most popular waterfalls in Bali so the pathway is well maintained and very safe to explore. It’s just a short walk down the concrete steps and the safety rail leads you all the way to the pit of the falls.

The walk down to the Bali waterfalls

On the way down you’ll pass a few typical Bali photo spots, as well as Baby Tegenungan Waterfall which doesn’t have much on its big brother, but again makes for a cosy photo opportunity or a place to quickly cool off!

The Waterfall Itself

Then comes the big boy!

Tegenungan Waterfall can be pretty dangerous following storms or even just on a windy day.

We visited a couple of times and on one occasion no swimming was allowed! Although if you just want to cool off there are plenty of spots where you can take a dip without risking any serious injury.

Where To Stay In Ubud

Luxury – A couple of recommendations we can give are Alaya Resort which is in a league of its own in Ubud and of course Hanging Gardens Of Bali which are just outside of Ubud.

Mid-Budget – Pertiwi Bisma 2 – A little hint of luxury up in the peaceful palm tree forest! The grounds were immaculate and each villa was faultless.

Backpacker – Sila Urip Guest House – Great reviews at a tiny price for the middle of the island.

You can also check out the prices of other places to stay in Ubud here.

    Hi I’m planning to visit Bali next week and I was just wondering how much time you spent here? I’m trying to plan a day trip to cover a lot of Ubud’s attractions and I’d like to try to see how much time I have to spend in each.

      Hey Cloe! You can do the most popular things in a day if you start early and hit Tegalalang for sunrise then monkey Forrest in the day and campuhan ridge walk for sunset 😁
