Banyumala Twin Waterfall are one of the most beautiful ‘lesser known’ spots in the North. Here’s all the info for visiting the waterfalls in Munduk.
How To Get To Banyumala Twin Waterfall
Banyumala Twin Waterfall is located high in the mountainous region of Bali.
It’s around a two hour drive from Canggu and 1 hour 30 from Ubud.
The drive is pretty straight forward and along the road in from Bedugul you’ll pass the popular Handara Gate, and the insta-famous Wanagiri Hidden Hills.
Upon arrival at the parking area, it’s roughly a 20 minute trek down.
There are a few sketchy bamboo stairs, and it can be tough on the way up! So probably not ideal for children.
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).
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 Banyumala Twin 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.
The Munduk area in particular is increasingly one of the most popular spots on the island for taking photographs. So it’s typically pretty crowded with tourists!
Therefore, as with anywhere in Bali, the best time to visit is always earlier in the morning to beat the crowds!
Although, saying that, not everyone makes the effort to trek to this waterfall, so it’s not quite as busy as some of the waterfalls.
Remember to wear good shoes for the walk down to the falls.
Most importantly – take your swimmies!

What To Expect At Banyumala Twin Waterfall
This really is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Bali and we would highly recommend visiting if possible.
Banyumala Twin Falls are becoming quite the hit in the North. With other popular spots such as Gitgit and Sekumpul just a short drive up, Banyumala is an ideal starting point for those staying in Munduk.
A slightly difficult trek down, through DIY bamboo trails, it’s certainly worth the effort when you reach the foot of the falls and see this hidden gem.
These two epic waterfalls, separated only by the rocks they cascade down, come together at their base to create a huge, jungle swimming hole.
There’s plenty of space for visitors to enjoy a swim in the crystal clear waters. The water is cool and ideal for jumping in and freshening up after the walk down to reach them.
Of all the waterfalls in the North, Banyumala Twin Waterfall are definitely worth the trek to get to. This hidden paradise will definitely be one you will remember.
