If you’re looking to explore some of the best spots on the island, Tegenungan Waterfall Bali has to be on your list. Here’s how to get there, prices & more.
How To Get To Tegenungan Waterfall Bali
Tegenungen Waterfall is roughly a 30 minute drive from Ubud and around an hour drive from Seminyak or Canggu.
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.
Tegenungan Waterfall Entrance Fee
Entrance fee – 15,000 IDR.
Parking for scooters – Free
Parking for cars – 5,000 IDR.
Down at the falls there are lockers available for 10,000 Rupiah and toilets for 3,000 Rupiah.
Tegenungan Waterfall Opening Times
Daily: 6:30am – 6:30pm
What To Expect At Tegenungan Waterfall Bali
After paying your entrance fee and stamping your ticket, follow the pathway through the markets until you hit the big ‘Welcome To Tegenungan Waterfall’ sign!
As soon as you pass the entrance sign there’s a great viewpoint to the left, although it’s usually pretty crowded! We grabbed a quick shot of the view – see below.
Tegenungan Waterfall is one of the most popular waterfalls in Bali, so the pathway is well maintained and very safe to explore.
It’s just a short walk down the concrete steps and the safety rail leads you all the way to the pit of the falls.
On the way down you’ll pass a few typical Bali photo spots, as well as the Baby Tegenungan Waterfall, which doesn’t really have much on its big brother.
Although again, it makes for a cosy photo opportunity or a place for a quick cool off!
The Waterfall Itself
If you hit this spot on a hot, clear day Tegenungan Waterfall is absolute heaven.
However, in monsoon season, or if you’re visiting after there’s been a storm, it can be pretty dangerous.
We visited a couple of times and on one occasion no swimming was allowed! Although, when it’s like this, if you just want to cool off there are plenty of spots where you can take a dip without it being a hazard.
Tegenungan is a very social place and super family friendly. There’s an area where you can play around with the funny signs and create some great photos with the waterfall in the backdrop.
There’s also a swing that’s been created for visitors to get the perfect Bali Instagram photo.
There are also two platforms to view the waterfall from, both connected by a picturesque bamboo bridge.
In addition, you pay another 10,000 Rupiah to get an awesome middle level view and even go another tier higher to the top of Tegenungan.
From here, you can really see the flow and force of the falls, as well as the huge drop from which it starts.
Finally, don’t forget to save 15,000 Rupiah for your well deserved corn on the cob, on the way out!
