Banyumala Twin Waterfalls – Hidden Waterfall In North Bali
I recently did the quick hike to Banyumala Twin Waterfalls 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.This travel guide will explain how to get there, and everything you need to know before you go!
Where To Stay
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.
The entry fee is only 15k IDR (~$1) as of 2019.
How To Get There
The Banyumala Twin Waterfalls are 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.
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.
