Sekumpul Waterfall is one of Bali’s most scenic natural attractions. The waterfall is actually a cluster of six to seven narrow cascades that form the centrepiece of a lush green bamboo forested valley. You can reach the falls on a nature trek through the namesake village of Sekumpul, which is located in upland region of the Buleleng regency in North Bali. The village is within an hour’s drive southeast from Lovina Beach.
The best waterfall in Bali is the gem of all waterfall gems. It lays hidden in the north of the island and often skipped by the mass crowds of tourist who visit and stay in the south. The waterfall will referring to lays hidden amongst a lush jungle forest and takes a bit of a hike to get to.
The falls are fed by two upland streams, and is the most accessible of the collection of falls in the area. Even so, getting down here requires a good deal of effort, with paths comprising dirt tracks, a hundred or so steps and crossings over streams. There are two ways you can enjoy the falls. A trek leads you to purpose-built gazebos where you can cool down and catch your breath while enjoying the view of the 80m-tall majestic fall from a distance.
Be prepared that the hike down will take you a good 45 minutes. Along the way, you pass through the village of Sekumpul and beautiful rice fields. About halfway, you get one hell of an aerial view of the falls! You can certainly stay here, get your pictures and turn around but we advise against it. The main event is waiting for you below!!
