​Escape the busy streets of Kuta and get back in touch with nature on this stunning hike to the base of Sekumpul Waterfalls.

Hidden in the dense jungles of Northern Bali lies Sekumpul Waterfalls, a collection of picturesque waterfalls away from the crowds.

From Kuta, you can organise a private driver to take you to the falls. Around $80 US will get you the entire vehicle, so the more people you have, the cheaper it will be. Most drivers are familiar with these falls so you should have no trouble finding a ride.

Note: During the wet season, landslides can make the road to the falls impassible.

Along the way you'll drive through the mountainous region of Northern Bali, offering great views of the twin lakes on a good day.

Your driver will take you to the car park of the Waterfalls. You aren't required to take a guide to the base of the falls but it is respectful to do so. Many of these guides live amongst the falls and offer great knowledge and they may even throw some fruit your way! I think we paid 100k IDR and that included entry.

It only takes around half an hour to make your way to the base of the falls. The track is slippery and steep and you can expect to wade through waist deep water if there has been decent rain fall.

Standing at the base of these waterfalls is a spectacular experience! Take some time at the bottom and soak in the views.
