Of all the Bali waterfalls, Tukad Cepung Waterfall was the most unique and magical one we visited. It’s becoming a hotspot amongst tourists, as well a very popular Instagram location.

The walk to get down to Tukad Cepung Waterfall was straight forward and easy enough. Although, unlike most Bali waterfalls, this one you had to wade through a knee-high river and over a few rocks to get there.

It took all of 15 minutes to get down to the enchanted location of Tukad Cepung Waterfall.


If you’re lucky enough to be chasing the waterfalls near Ubud on a sunny day, then you’re in for a treat. The stunning sun rays shine straight through the top of the falls creating natural beams across the canyon like rock formations.

You can swim in the waterfall and get pretty close without getting too wet from the spray, so get your cameras ready.

We headed straight to Tukad Cepung at around 10am, after our Tegalalang Rice Terrace visit, which is the perfect time of day to catch the crazy sun rays.

On the way down to the falls there is a little warung selling the usual Mie Goreng (vegetable noodles). So bare that in mind for the hike back up. We stopped off to chat to the locals and refuel which cost us 25,000 IDR for noodles along with water which was 10,000 IDR

How much time do you need

This trip can be a half- or full day trip, depends on how much time you have! I experienced that time flies here as not only the waterfall but also the surrounding is absolutely lovely.

Take a shower under the waterfall, enjoy a picknick on top of the huge rocks, swing with the lianas hanging down to the earth through the jungle-like area or start a yoga session to feel the freedom!
