The Wanagiri Hidden Hills & Bali Swing is popping up on everyones Instagram feed lately! So here’s a guide to travelling up north and all you need to know.
Just a short drive up from Bedugul, we’ve pin pointed Wanigiri Hidden Hills on google maps below.
We travelled up from Canggu on our scooters which took roughly 2 hours.
You can hire scooters for around 50,000 IDR per day or hire a private driver for around 500,000 IDR per day.
A short ride up from Handara Golf & Resort (The Bali Gates), there’ll be a sharp left which leads to around six different Wanagiri Hidden Hills stops.
Whilst in the area we recommend taking a tour of Northern Bali yourself to discover some of the best hidden gems!
Entrances range from 20,000 – 40,000 IDR per person.
Each location has different attractions. Usually including a nest, a swing and some kind of bamboo lookout.
You simply pay an entrance fee and spend as long as you like within the grounds taking photos.
So it all started from the famous Bali Swing in Ubud.
Built in the garden of an Air BnB host, the view and swing made for the perfect Instagram photo location! But now, since the owner has started charging $35 USD to check it out, if you’re not staying at the Air BnB there are cheaper imitations popping up all over Bali.
The locals in Wanagiri took to their own resources to create exactly what tourists we’re looking for to capture that fairytale image at a fraction of the Ubud price.
Swings are popping up in every main tourist attraction in Bali, including Tegenungan Waterfall, although the most popular of them all seem to be those in Wanagiri Hidden Hills.
As we mentioned earlier, you can’t miss the bamboo made platforms and photogenic swings as you arrive in the Wanagiri area.
They are dotted along the left hand side of the road as you head along the main road that leads in from Bedugul.
You’ll see the competition lined up waving you into their tourist traps. Although as cheesy as they are, these impressive works of art are an incredible way for the locals to make a living thanks to tourism.
Our advice is to hit the big one!
As you drive up and down the main road you’ll see one huge sign pointing to a turning off the main road, with a note of ‘1km this way’.
It’s 150,000 IDR for access to every station, including the huge Bali swing. Although we negotiated just 3 items for 50,000.
The park is huge and stands alone from the competition back on the main road. With many nests, zip-lines and viewpoints accessible easily.
Instagram literally runs the show when it comes to the famous Wangagiri Hidden Hills. And the Bali swing is just another example of how powerful social media has become!
