Banyumala Twin Waterfalls – Hidden Waterfall In North Bali

by David & Intan

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.

Entrance Fees

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 best way to get there is to rent a scooter or hire a private car and driver (both of these can be booked online).

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 an English speaking driver, my top recommendation would be GetYourGuide.

Their price is 650k Rupiah ($45 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 great deal. They also offer affordable hotel transfers from the airport.

If you'd rather travel by motorbike, they have that too. Their scooter rentals start at 140k Rupiah (~$9) and include a helmet, rain coat, and free delivery in the south Bali area.

We've used GetYourGuide for lots of tours and activities around the world, and they're great! Highly recommended.
