Need a break from the hustle and bustle (and heat) while in Bali, particularly the capital of Denpasar? Look no further than the conveniently located Tegenungan Waterfall.

Located approximately 30 minutes from Denpasar City, the Tegenungan Waterfall gives visitors a breath of fresh air — and water — while surrounded by luscious and rich green foliage. Tegenungan Waterfall is one of the island’s few waterfalls not located in the highlands or mountains.

Upon reaching Tegenungan Waterfall, visitors must pay 10,000 IDR (~$1) to enter. The short walk to the water is flanked by tiny shops, restaurants and warungs on each side of the street. After reaching the end of the road, locals and tourists alike begin their descent down a litany of stairs, culminating at the bottom of the falls.

Visitors can pose for photos or even take a dip in the clean, freshwater pool constantly supplied by the gushing fall. There is a small wooden bridge across the stream that gives visitors access to more stairs if they desire to climb up to the top of the falls and peek over the edge. More nominal fees are required the higher you climb, but the views at the top are worth every penny.

Depending on the weather and depth of the water below, visitors can free jump into the pool. Obviously ask the life guard on duty beforehand just to be safe.

If venturing down to the actual fall isn’t your speed or desire, visitors can enjoy its beauty from afar while seated at one of the local restaurants or warungs overlooking the entire scenery.
