6 Must See Hidden Waterfalls Near Ubud, Bali

There is a world of amazing hidden waterfalls near Ubud, Bali that no one seems to know about! We found 5 out of these 6 waterfalls, and so many of them had barely any people there! Some of them also had locals hanging out there! If you’re ready to see gorgeous hidden waterfalls in Bali, add these to your list!

Use the amazing Skyscanner app or website to find great deals to get there!

Tibumana Waterfall – We loved this waterfall so much that we spent the whole afternoon here! There are places to sit and stare at this incredible waterfall, and the waters under the fall are perfect for swimming! You can swim behind the fall too! There were very few people here, and at one point we had it all to ourselves!timbumana_hidden waterfall_bali_ciaofelicia

Tukad Cepung Waterfall – This waterfall was a short jungle trek away! The areas surrounding this waterfall are gorgeous! It is a big waterfall with shallow waters below that is perfect for standing under.tukad_cepung_hidden waterfall_bali_ciaofelicia

Dusun Kuning Waterfall – This waterfall had quite a sketchy hike to get to (but definitely worth it). Bring some Water Shoes!  I fell twice getting there, but that isn’t saying much because I fall pretty much every time I walk. There were a few other groups when we arrived and some locals. The fall is huge, and has a great swimming area!dusun_kuning_hidden waterfall_bali_ciaofelicia

Kanto Lampo Waterfall – This might have been my favorite waterfall! It is the second most known waterfall near Ubud, so there will be plenty of other people here as well. We accidentally got to this waterfall right before closing so we got to hang out for a little while, but we also got to play in the waterfall all by ourselves for the last 10 minutes!! If you can time it like we did, it was awesome to have it all to ourselves! The waterfall closes at 6:30pm.kanto_lampo_ hidden waterfall_bali_ciaofelicia

Tegenungan Waterfall – The typical touristy waterfall in Bali. It is definitely still worth going to though!! We got there before 8 am, and there were only 4 other people there! It is beautiful. Don’t skip this waterfall, but do try to skip the crowds!tegenungan_hidden_waterfall_bali_ciaofelicia

Tukad Tangkub Waterfall – We tried to find this waterfall, but Google Maps did us dirty. Maybe try asking around or using a different map besides Google Maps to get there! I’ve also heard that the road to get there is very small so make sure you’re a champion scooter driver if you want to find this one!

Need somewhere to stay?  The Airbnb’s in Bali are the best I have ever been to!

Hi! I’m Felicia. I am a 23 year old traveler originally from Huntington Beach, CA and currently living in Auckland, New Zealand. I graduated from California State University, Fullerton in May 2016. After graduation, I didn't have a "dream career" in mind, so I followed my heart and have been finding ways to make money as I travel the world ever since! I plan to travel and learn more about the world than I ever did in school. Traveling is a passion of mine. I love seeing the beauty of our world through architecture, nature, and people. I love connecting with people without being able to speak the same language. I love being in an unfamiliar place alone and stepping outside of my comfort zone. But I don’t know what I want to do yet. I plan to travel the world for as long as possible instead of "adulting." Until I figure it out, will you go on this adventure with me?

  1. Oh this is great! I’m heading to Ubud soon and will try to find some of these waterfalls for myself! I didn’t know about them (I’d only heard of Git Git) so thanks for sharing.

  2. I didn’t know there are so many waterfalls near Ubud! I’m thinking about going to Bali in a couple of months so I note it for my visit. I think I can understand why Kanto Lampo Waterfall was your favorite, it looks impressive! And it’s cool that you can swim in some of them.

  3. Tukad Cepung Waterfall seems to be an amazing waterfall surrounded by great nature landscape ! For local people, I heard this waterfall is well known as a romantic place ? Is it true ? I guess the best time to visit it is in afternoon time when the sun right over the cave ! It should be magic ! I also love the picture of Kanto Lampo 🙂 If I remember well, the name is taken from the local name of the trees that grow a round orange fruit around the area ?

  4. Gorgeous waterfalls! They all have different personalities! These photos make me want to go on a jungle trek and find a waterfall in paradise. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I love taking photos of waterfalls! These waterfalls remind me of the movie called The Beach. It’s so beautiful!

  6. All of these look so beautiful! I’m yet to visit Bali so I’m definitely adding all of these to my list when I go 🙂

  7. This is so great! I also love chasing waterfalls – actually filmed with the USA Travel Channel this week here in Aus for their show Top Secret Swimming Holes! Im heading to Bali in a week so will definitely keep this post bookmarked! Thanks for the great tips!

  8. Thanks for the tips, Felicia. Managed to see three out of the six on a trip last week. Absolutely fell in love with the scenic isolation of Tibumana
