Tegenungan Waterfall Near Ubud, Bali
Tegenungan Waterfall is probably the busiest and most famous waterfall in Bali, and it’s super easy to reach from Ubud or Sanur.
You can swim in the falls (before the safety rope), and there are some warungs where you can sit and eat while enjoying the view.
I wouldn’t recommend Tegenungan if you’re looking for a secret waterfall with no crowds, but it’s still worth a visit just for the scenic views!This travel guide will explain how to get there, and everything you need to know before you go!
Where To Stay
Tegenungan Waterfall (also known as ‘Air Terjun Blangsinga’ in Indonesian) sits at the bottom of a steep ravine in the jungle.
It only takes about 15 minutes to hike down to the waterfall, but the way back up is a good workout with a lot of humidity and uneven stone steps (the stairs feel like they were made for giants!).
Just a heads up — you won’t find peace or tranquility here. Tegenungan waterfall is very overdeveloped and crowded with shops and tacky tourist props.
I hope the Bali government will step in and give it the cleanup and conservation it deserves; but in the meantime, it is what it is.
The bright side is that this is one of the easiest waterfalls to reach in Bali, and the scenery is still great!
When To Visit
The best time to visit is early in the morning, before the crowds arrive. Tegenungan gets very crowded by noon.
The waterfall is especially impressive during and after the rainy season, when it turns into a big 2-step cascade.

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.
