Banyumala Twin Waterfalls – Hidden Waterfall In North Bali
We recently did the quick hike to Banyumala Twin Waterfalls, a nice hidden waterfall with a jungle background in north Bali.
This is a short, steep hike that leads to a cascade of small waterfalls joined together. It’s a beauty, and there’s even a natural pool to swim in.
This travel guide will explain how to get to Banyumala Waterfall, and everything you need to know before you go!
Where To Stay
Banyumala Waterfall – What To Expect
Banyumala is called a twin waterfall, but it’s actually more like a hundred tiny waterfalls all converging into a natural pool.
I think it’s one of the nicer waterfalls in Bali. It would be great for a swim too, although the water is ice cold since it’s in the mountains.
When we went to Banyumala in the evening, we were the only people there! It was a big change from 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. If you look around you can find a few more small waterfalls in the same ravine.
The locals have planted a bunch of bright colored flowers here. Normally I would say leave it natural, but it actually looks pretty nice and you can take some great pics here.
All in all, it’s one of the most peaceful spots in north Bali.
When To Visit
The Banyumala waterfall is flowing all year, so there’s no bad time to visit.
It sits in the mountains at a higher elevation than the rest of Bali, so the temps are a bit cooler and it never gets too hot.
The entrance fee is 30k Rupiah (~$2) as of 2021.
This waterfall is starting to get more popular on the internet, so the ticket price will probably keep going up.
How To Get There
The Banyumala Twin Waterfalls are in north Bali, about 2 hours drive from Ubud or 1 hour from Singaraja.
The car parking is by a house and it’s clearly marked with a sign that says cars can’t go any further. If you’re on a scooter you can continue past the car park and all the way to the ticket desk, otherwise it’s a 5-10 minute walk to the ticket desk.
After you reach the ticket desk, it’s only a 15 minute walk (or less) down to the waterfall, and if you’re exhausted when you come back there are scooter taxis who can take you back to the car park for a small fee.
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.
