Aling Aling Waterfall & Cliff Jumping In Sambangan, Bali
The Aling Aling Waterfall is a great spot in Bali for adrenaline seekers and photographers alike.
It’s a green jungle ravine in Sambangan, with a giant twin waterfall and then 3 smaller waterfalls where you can enjoy cliff jumping, water slides, and natural pools.
Aling Aling is one of the best waterfalls in north Bali. This travel guide will explain how to get there, and everything you need to know before you go!
What To Expect – Aling Aling Waterfalls
Aling Aling has 4 different waterfalls that are great for pictures, cliff jumping, and natural water slides.
If you plan to do cliff jumping, the staff will make you hire a guide and life jacket. I can’t really fault that rule because there have been some legit injuries here by people jumping in the wrong places.
Aling Aling is part of the Sambangan Secret Garden, a leafy natural area in north Bali that actually has 8 different waterfalls in total, along with canyoning and rice terraces.
I plan to cover all of the 8 Sambangan waterfalls in a future guide, but for now we’ll just go over the 4 waterfalls at Aling Aling.
The names of these are as follows:
- Aling Aling Waterfall
- Kroya Waterfall
- Kembar Waterfall
- Pucuk Waterfall
You can easily walk between each of these waterfalls, and they’re just a few minutes apart. There’s a sign at the entrance giving clear directions.
Read on for more info on each of the Aling Aling waterfalls!
1. Aling Aling Waterfall
This is the main waterfall at Aling Aling. It’s an epic twin waterfall with a height of about 35 meters (115 feet).
The pictures don’t do it justice. This is a big, tall waterfall and it puts out a ton of mist. Watch your electronics!
There’s no cliff jumping at this one (it’s too big and strong), although you could go for a swim in the pool if you’re feeling determined.
2. Kroya Waterfall
This one has a plank for jumping (5 meter jump), or you can go around to the top of the waterfall and slide down it. Great fun!
3. Kembar Waterfall
This is a big twin waterfall with a 10-15 meter cliff jump. Do if you dare! It’s higher than it looks in the photos.
Be extra careful with this one, because it’s a long drop and you want to land where the water is plenty deep. Your guide can point this out for you.
4. Pucuk Waterfall
This is the last of the four waterfalls, and it’s the most quiet. There’s no jumping at this one, but you can swim or take pictures.
- 8 AM – 5 PM
- 4 Waterfalls:* 20k IDR (~$1)
- 4 Waterfalls, Guide, & Cliff Jumping: 125k IDR
*The normal entrance fee is 20k Rupiah, and you get to visit all 4 waterfalls, but no jumping is allowed. They make you pay extra to do the water slides or cliff jumping.
How To Get There
The Aling Aling waterfalls are located in north Bali, near Singaraja.
It’s a 2 to 2.5 hour drive from the touristy areas of south Bali, like Ubud, Canggu, or Kuta.
Bali Private Driver & Motorbike Rental
If you want to explore Bali in the comfort and safety of a private car with a driver, my top recommendation would be Klook.
Their price is 450k IDR ($30 USD) for a full day of driving and sightseeing in Bali (up to 10 hours) for 1-5 passengers. That's the total price for the whole car + driver + petrol! It's a steal.
If you'd rather travel by motorbike, they have that too. Their scooter rentals start at 85k IDR (~$6) and include a helmet, rain coat, and pickup in the south Bali area.
We've used Klook for lots of tours and activities around the world, and they're great! Highly recommended.
