While swimming is not recommended in Aling Aling Waterfall, you can still take a moment to admire it while your body recovers from fatigue.
Bali’s Most Unique Waterfall
According to some, the Aling Aling waterfall is one of the most unique waterfalls that Bali has to offer! Located in the idyllic village of Sambang, in the northern region of the island, this cascade is one of 7 falls in the Secret Garden of Sambangan. The path leading to the waterfall will take you through rice fields, climbs and descents for about 400 meters, but don’t worry: enjoy the natural beauties along the hiking trail, it is absolutely worth it!

Trees and shrubs appear to form a hanging garden from which the water jumps in the underlying river. These elements will give you true feelings of a jungle survival without venturing off the beaten track, which is exactly what a lot of people are looking for! However, although the walk to Aling-Aling waterfall has always been a tough track, now it has become suitable for beginners and families.
Do not swim in this waterfall because the current here is quite strong and the depth of the river doesn’t allow you to swim. This waterfall still has a special significance for Balinese because the surrounding area is deemed sacred. We should respect, therefore, the locals and their recommendation to not swim in this waterfall, although this pristine blue water looks pretty tempting.
And last but not least, take a moment to admire the waterfall while your body recovers from fatigue.
