Not so far from Ubud there is a big waterfall called Tegenungan Waterfall where the water looks white falling from the top of a black rock cliff into a calm pond. It’s about 20 meters high. The view of this waterfall is truly impressive. In addition, visitors can also find smaller hidden waterfalls, simple food stalls and a charming cave with holy springs.
Tegenungan Waterfall is a pleasant place to visit on hot days, for swimming, climbing to the falls, or just walking around. Tegenungan is one of the natural attractions in Bali that is often included in the tour which includes visits to terraced rice fields in Tegalalang, as well as cultural tours to Ubud and its surroundings. The tour usually takes you down the stairs to the waterfall, giving you time to swim, introducing you to the holy spring, and maybe including swimming in the Tukad Petanu River.
Tegenungan Waterfall is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts and first-time visitors to Bali. Visitors cannot jump off the cliff because it is very dangerous. Doing so can cause serious injury or death. Like other holy springs of Bali, women who menstruate are prohibited from using holy springs. Visitors must respect this prohibition. Tegenungan Waterfall is inaccessible to those who have mobility problems because there are many steep steps.
