When you think of Bali, you think waterfalls. And when you think of Bali waterfalls, you think Sekumpul. So we took the trip up North to check out one of the best waterfalls in Bali. Here’s our guide and all you need to know for visiting Sekumpul waterfall Bali aka Air Terjun Sekumpul.
How To Get To Sekumpul Waterfall Bali
(Air Terjun Sekumpul)
Sekumpful Waterfall is located towards the North of Bali, close to the Bedugul area, but can be accessed from anywhere in Bali on a day trip.
Know as one of the best Bali waterfalls, along with Aling Aling Waterfall, we took a drive up from Canggu which took around two and a half hours by scooter. Although we did stay over night to avoid the drive home the same day.
Our advice is to head to the North entrance and park as close to the ticket desk as possible. That way you can walk down from the viewpoint to the waterfall itself.
It can be confusing on your first visit to Sekumpul if you follow google maps, so we’ve used Maps.me in this blog to give you a better idea of the route to follow.
The map above will lead you down some narrow local pathways but is definitely the easiest way to access Sekumpul waterfall Bali without a guide. There are many car parks on the side of the road on the way in, although these are all for the trekking tours!
Sekumpul Waterfall Entrance Fee
Entrance Fee – 20,000 Rupiah
Parking – FREE
Sekumpul Waterfall Bali – The Best Of The Bali Waterfalls
Sekumpful Waterfall, also known locally as Air Terjun Sekumpul, is possibly the most famous of all the Bali waterfalls.
Its beautiful viewpoints, as well as it’s incredible height, make for an unforgettable visit! For us it’s a toss up between Sekumpul and Nungnung for our favourite waterfall in Bali.
So to get to Sekumpul, as mentioned earlier, keep on following the map in until you hit something that looks like this.
The Way Down
If you start at the North entrance, it’s just a short walk from the ticketing booth to the first view point. From their you can take the steps, an easy 10 minute walk, down to one of the best waterfalls in Bali.
We’d heard horror stories of hour long treks and super steep steps, although it doesn’t have to be that hard.
Whether we got lucky or not, we hopefully have pathed the way for an easy and less stressful visit to one of the largest and most beautiful Bali waterfalls.
The Waterfall Itself
It’s possible to swim and get some awesome photos down at the base of Sekumpul waterfall, although the spray is pretty solid!
For us, after all the rumours and photo inspiration we’d seen on Instagram, Sekumpul definitely stands as one of the best waterfalls in Bali and stands at the top of the Bali waterfall to do list for a reason!
