Aling Aling Waterfall In Bali – A Complete Guide

If you’re looking for an adrenaline packed day in Bali then Aling Aling Waterfall is for you! In our opinion one of the best waterfalls in Bali, here’s why.

How To Get To Aling Aling Waterfall

Aling Aling waterfall is located in the far North of Bali, close to both Bedugul, Lovina and Sekumpul Waterfall.

It’s around a two and a half hour drive from Ubud and doable in a day trip.

We always choose to rent scooters, which start at around 50,000 IDR per day, and explore ourselves.

However be sure to read up on our renting a scooter in Bali guide beforehand!

If you’re looking for somewhere to rent scooters from you can book a Bali Scooter or Motorbike Rental with Delivery.

Another option is to hire a Bali Private Car or Minibus Charter With Driver, which is pretty popular for day trips around Bali, and they start at around 500,000 IDR per day (8 hours).

Cement stairs lead the way up to all the waterfalls, so this one is completely family friendly and mainly flat, not a hard walk at all.

For those short on time, or that prefer everything to be organised for them, there are some awesome tours on Get Your Guide available to book in advance.

The Gitgit and Alingaling Waterfalls Small Group Tour is a popular one.

Best Time To Visit Aling Aling Waterfall

When planning your Bali itinerary it’s worth noting that rainy season runs from October to April, with the wettest months being December and January.

No matter what the season you can expect a tropical, warm and humid climate all year round.

As always, we recommend visiting early in the day before it gets too hot and too crowded.

There’s a 10 minute hike down a concrete path and steps to the waterfall which can be slippery when wet so take care.

There’s plenty of fun water activities available if you’re looking to expel some energy!

What To Expect At Aling Aling Waterfall

Aling Aling waterfall itself is a natural wonder. Possibly one of the most powerful waterfalls we’ve ever seen and definitely one of the most impressive Bali waterfalls!

Surrounded by a wall of lush green foliage, the heavy flow of water resonates through the valley as it flows down from 35m into the pool at its base.

It’s not possible to swim in Aling Aling waterfall, although it is worth the short walk from Kroya waterfall just to see where the foundations that surround secret garden Bali stem from.

Aling Aling Waterfall is considered sacred by locals, which is why activities such as swimming are prohibited. In fact, there is a small shrine near the top of the waterfall, adding to the mystical atmosphere of these falls.

There’s a deck that finishes the trail and makes for a great photo spot, although prepare to get a little wet from the backlash of Aling Aling.

Although Aling Aling is the famous name you hear. It’s actually Kroya Waterfall that gains all the attention nowadays!

Again, found in the beautiful secret garden Bali grounds, Kroya Waterfall is an adventure seekers heaven.

Also. neighbouring Kembar and Pucuk waterfalls offer plenty of fun activities.

From cliff jumping at either 5, 10 or 15 metres to literally using the waterfall rocks as slides, Kroya Waterfall has everything.
