Leke Leke Waterfall In Bali – A Complete Guide

Leke Leke Waterfall Bali is one of the hidden gems of the North. Here’s all the info you need for visiting the almost private, secluded waterfall.

How To Get To Leke Leke Waterfall

Finding Leke Leke Waterfall couldn’t be easier. We spotted the signs and didn’t even use google maps but here’s the exact pin point incase you need it.

It’s on the way North from Ubud to Bedugul and a great stop point if you’re heading to Nungnung Waterfall.

It’s an easy enough walk down, taking roughly 15 minutes, and leads through some bamboo built bridges to lead you to the fall itself.

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.

Leke Leke Waterfall Entrance Fee

Entrance Fee: 30,000 IDR per person.

Within the grounds there’s also cycling, tubing, trekking and camping available.

So it can be as much of an adventure trip as you want it to be.

Leke Leke Waterfall Opening Times

Monday – Sunday: 7am – 5pm.

There is a gate at the entrance where locals collect the entrance fee, so you cannot visit outside of these hours.

Best Time To Visit Leke Leke Waterfall

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 waterfall all year round during opening hours 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.

When we visited Leke Leke Waterfall it was not one of the waterfalls in Bali listed on the main tourist trail, so it was empty. However, I can certainly see this changing.

Therefore, we would as usual, recommend visiting early in the day if looking for less crowds and Leke Leke Waterfall is open from 7am.

We found one tour available that includes Leke-Leke Waterfall, Monkey Forest & Jungle Swing Tour if you like to get things booked in.

When we visited Leke Leke Waterfall there was not anybody checking for safety etc, so please be aware that you swim at your own risk.

Also, there are were no lockers available.

What To Expect At Leke Leke Waterfall

So we decided on a whim to check out Leke Leke Waterfall after seeing numerous signs on the side of the road.

With the expectations not too high and having never heard of Leke Leke Waterfall beforehand, we were pleasantly surprised with what welcomed us.

A modern and well decorated entrance area leading down to a newly equipped ticket booth and even a couple of guest rooms.

We spoke to the receptionist for a few minutes who informed us that it was newly opened.

They were hoping to keep expanding, so that it would be a much more tourist friendly area with the trekking, camping and other outdoor activities available.

The prices seemed a little expensive compared to other Bali waterfalls. However, it was justifiable with the amount of work that had gone into the grounds.

The Waterfall Itself

The walk down to Leke Leke Waterfall takes around 15 minutes. It’s a relatively easy, flat path with a couple of bamboo bridges to cross on the way.

When we arrived, we were the only two people at Leke Leke waterfall and although it wasn’t the best waterfall we’d seen in Bali it was certainly very beautiful. It felt extra special due to the fact that we had it completely to ourselves!

The setting is stunning and this dramatic waterfall makes an awesome backdrop for some great photos.

So, with complete access to all areas of this stunning waterfall tucked away in the jungle, it made for a very special experience for us.

Hopefully it doesn’t become too spoiled by tourism and keeps its peaceful and magical feel. Although I’m sure the locals would hope otherwise.

So if you’re looking for something a little out of the way and secluded, add this to your Ubud itinerary.
