Full description
Immerse yourself in the wilderness of northern Bali as you trek to the majestic Sekumpul Waterfalls. Discover local flora and fauna such as cacao, lemongrass, and coffee on your way to the bottom of the falls, where you can wade in the rock pools. Take a small group tour for up to 5 people to the majestic Sekumpul Waterfalls in Bali's northern wilderness. Immerse yourself in the picturesque natural surroundings, then explore the Ulun Danu and Taman Ayun Water Temples with your English-speaking guide. After pickup from your accommodation in Bali, transfer by air-conditioned vehicle to begin your trek to Sekumpul Waterfalls, whose name means “grouped together” in Bahasa. Discover local flora and fauna such as cacao, lemongrass, and coffee on your way to the bottom of the falls. Once there, wade in the rock pools and admire the up to 80-meter (262-foot) high cascades nestled in the heart of the lush jungle. Before lunch, stop by the Twin Lakes of Buyan and Tamblingan, which form part of the island’s volcanic landscape. Then, enjoy the cooler weather over buffet lunch at the famous Lake Beratan, 1,231 meters (4,039 feet) above sea level. Once you've replenished your energy, pay a visit to the iconic Ulun Danu Temple that sits on the edge of this mountain scenery. Commonly featured in postcards of Bali, you can't mistake these picturesque shrines by the water. Finally, make your last stop at another famous UNESCO Heritage Site, the Taman Ayun Water Temple. Your tour concludes with drop-off back at our accommodation in Bali.

Excellent day out. Picked up early from Ubud as it was about a 2 hour drive to the waterfalls. Arriving early meant we were the only ones there and had the waterfalls to ourselves. More people were arriving as we were leaving but by no means busy. The waterfalls were some of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. We got the option to enter from the front and see 2 waterfalls or from the back and see 3 waterfalls. You have to pay for entry to the falls we entered from the so we could swim. The back way also meant paying twice due to ownership being divided between 2 separate villages. Swimming under the hidden waterfall near Sekumpbal was an amazing experience. The water temple was beautiful. We were lucky enough to see a procession as it was close to the Balinese day of celebration. We had a driver called Widi who was fantastic, spoke good English, very helpful and led us through the whole day.

This was amazing! The waterfall is breathtaking. We had lovely weather, and the swim was a great reward for the hike down. Climbing back up was really tough (and I'm sure my legs will be sore for days) but it is so worth it. The guide at the waterfall was very sweet and held my hand the entire time to make sure I wouldn't fall. Our tourguide Gusti was very kind and told us about the area, the ceremonies and explained a lot when we arrived at the water temple. Another amazing place It is quite touristy so keep that in mind when you visit (we were here on a Sunday) but it's still nice to see. I highly recommend the tour!

Funny and friendly guide, showing us the temples and explaining their meaning. Guide was in a good mood and made some jokes. English wasn't perfect but still good. Walk back from the waterfall can be tough but still very doable and breaks are possible. Temples were nice. If there was a sixth star I'd give it to this guide. Thanks Putu
