Visiting Waterfall

Listening to the thunderous sounds while looking  at  the  beautiful  greenery  and dipping  in  fresh  water  sounds  pretty amazing. And by visiting some of numerous Bali  waterfalls,  you  can  experience  all  of nature’s  beauty.  Waterfall  hopping  sounds like fun you can’t get everywhere, and Bali is unique because of it. But prepare for some serious hiking and adventure since the waterfalls are situated mostly in the valleys and you will need to walk down and up to see them. But it is well worth the sweat! We give you 3 suggestions where to go:

Away  from  the  overcrowded  touristic  centers of Seminyak and Ubud, there is a small village called Les, with a beautiful waterfall. In  Balinese  Yeh  Mampeh  Waterfall  means “flying water” and this waterfall is untouched by pollution and nestled in serene surroundings. It is also one of the tallest waterfalls on the island. You can hike down the falls and visit the nearby caves, or simply bathe and enjoy the gentle flow of the water.

Hidden away in the Tabanan region of Bali, Blemantung Waterfall (or Blahmantung waterfall) is a gem hidden in greenery, not so many people know about.
Tucked among the area’s many coffee plantations, it is 50 meters high and is the perfect place to soak in the water and take in the fresh air of the rain forest. And if concentrate you may smell the coffee fragrance in the air.


This waterfall is not so popular because it is a neighbor of more famous Git Git Waterfall.
But for those who come to visit it offers stunning  unspoiled  beauty.  It  is  not  very  high, and its gentle slope and regular water flow make it ideal for soaking to enjoy the beautiful green jungle surroundings and calm your soul.■
