The Lovina Tour is a combination of waterfalls, hot springs and temples. Want to visit only waterfalls? Then the Ubud Hidden Waterfalls Tour is for you. With this tour, you will visit three unique waterfalls. It's no problem if you've already seen some waterfalls, because we'll make sure you go to three waterfalls you haven't been to yet!
1. Gitgit Waterfall
Gitgit Waterfall is located in northern Bali. It is one of the highest waterfalls in Bali. To get to the waterfall, you have to take a short walk along a path in the jungle that follows the river. Along the way, there are small shops selling handmade souvenirs. Once you arrive at the waterfall, you will see the 40-metre-high waterfall fall into a pool, here you can take a refreshing dip.
The Aling Aling is a unique waterfall, perfect for adrenaline seekers. On the way to the Aling Aling waterfall, there are other waterfalls, where natural slides are formed or you can jump off a board, such as the Kroya Waterfall. In the Aling Aling waterfall itself, swimming is not allowed, as the waterfall is sacred to Balinese, so you will have to do this at one of the waterfalls nearby.
4. Banyumala Twin Waterfall
The Banyumala Twin Waterfall is located in northern Bali. It is about a 15-minute walk through the forest to reach the waterfall. The waterfall gets its name from the splitting of two waterfalls flowing down into a large pool. Take a refreshing dip here, relax or take beautiful photos.
5. Tegenungan Waterfall
The Tegenungan Waterfall is located near Ubud. The waterfall is easy to reach and on the way you are likely to encounter a swing. The water plunges from about 25 metres high into the Petanu River, making it a relatively small waterfall. The waterfall is set in a jungle environment. This creates beautiful photos. A tip is to go as early as possible, as more tourists arrive later in the day.
6. Tibumana Waterfall
The Tibumana Waterfall is relatively unknown, but truly a paradise near Ubud. To reach the waterfall, you have to take a walk of about 15 minutes through the jungle where you walk down steps. Once you arrive at the valley, you can choose to turn right to see the temple or turn left for the waterfall. The temple is not impressive, but the waterfall certainly is. You can swim at the waterfall.
7. Leke Leke Waterfall
The Leke Leke Waterfall is one of the lesser-known waterfalls in Bali. It is an easy hike, of about 15 minutes to reach the waterfall.
