I recently did the quick hike to Banyumala Twin Waterfall in north Bali.
This is a short, downhill (not scary) hike that takes about 10-15 minutes, leading to a nice group of small waterfalls joined together. It’s a beauty.
Visiting Banyumala Waterfall
Banyumala is called a twin waterfall, but it’s actually more like a hundred tiny waterfalls all converging into a pool. In my opinion this is actually one of the nicer waterfalls in Bali. It would be great for a swim too, although the water was a bit cold.
When I went to Banyumala in the evening, I was also the only person there! It was a sharp contrast to some of the more crowded waterfalls like Tukad Cepung.
At the bottom of the trail, there’s a pagoda to sit under and also a bathroom / changing room if you plan to swim.
As of 2019, the entrance fee is only 15k IDR ($1 USD).
How To Get To Banyumala Waterfall
Banyumala Waterfall is in North Bali, about 2 hours drive from Ubud or 1 hour from Singaraja.
Make sure you stop at the second parking area, not the first; it’s significantly closer to the waterfall so it’ll save you from hiking as far. The walk to the falls from the last parking area is only about 10 minutes.
