Banyu Wana Amertha Waterfall In Bali – A Complete Guide

Here’s our Banyu Wana Amertha Waterfall in Bali guide. These beautiful falls in northern Bali are a real hidden gem you won’t want to miss.

How To Get To Banyu Wana Amertha Waterfall

Banyu Wana Amertha Waterfall is located high in the mountainous region of Bali, about a 30 minute drive from Munduk.

Or, around a two hour drive from Canggu and 1 hour 30 from Ubud.

By Scooter:

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.

By Tour:

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).

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.

Best Time To Visit Banyu Wana Amertha Waterfall + Tips

The best time to visit anywhere in Bali, if possible, is between April and October which is the island’s dry season.

You can visit the falls year round but you need to consider the increase in rainfall between November and March. This always makes the jungle treks a little more difficult and slippery.

This area in particular is increasingly becoming one of the more popular spots on the island for taking photographs. So it can get a little crowded at times.

Therefore, as with anywhere in Bali, the best time to visit is always earlier in the day to beat the crowds!

Remember to wear good shoes for the walk to the falls and for clambering on the rocks around the falls.

Most importantly – take your swimmies and a towel, as you will get wet!

What To Expect At Banyu Wana Amertha Waterfall

Banyu Wana Amertha Waterfall is still a bit of a hidden gem in Bali, but is quickly becoming more well known.

This is probably due the word getting out and also the locals working hard to make the waterfalls accessible and tourist friendly.

There are more popular waterfalls in Munduk, such as Banyumala Twin Waterfall or Munduk Waterfall, but this is one of my favourites.

After about a 10 minute walk down the well maintained, stepped-path through the jungle you actually come to two beautiful waterfalls not far from each other.

The first waterfall has a bamboo bridge built across a creek that takes you to the small pools at the base of the falls.

The bridge is a great place to stand and get some perfect insta shots with the waterfall cascading down in the background.

There are rubber rings floating around that you can relax on and get underneath the falls for a shower.

The second set of falls, called the Bhuana Sari Waterfalls, have to be up there, as one of the most beautiful falls in Bali.

The water flows out of many different outlets over large rocks and through lush green vegetation before cascading down into a creek.

This creates an almost magical and fairytale like setting, as well as some great photo opportunities. A lovely place to relax and refresh.

I would therefore definitely recommend putting the Banyu Wana Amertha Waterall in Bali on the ‘must see’ list!
