The fascinating Carat Waterfall in the unspoiled village of Tamblang is feared by locals as a cursed place. Read this post to learn more.
A Waterfall Feared by Locals?
Located in the unspoiled village of Tamblang, just 45 minutes east of Singaraja, you will find one of the most interesting waterfalls that Bali has to offer: the Carat Waterfalls. It’s quite difficult to get there because the 800 meters descent takes you across a wobbly bamboo bridge.

The entrance of the waterfall is located on the main road from Kintamani to Singaraja, so you will see immediately a signboard declaring the waterfall is just approximately 600 meters away. We highly recommend you to wear casual wearing and trekking shoes!
The Carat Waterfall consists of two waterfalls on top of each other, one taller than the other one. Seeing it from the distance, you’ll notice that this waterfall has the same shape of a water jug or kettle, hence the name Carat (“Ceret” means “faucet or water kettle” in the local language).
What makes this waterfall unique and unmistakable? Behind its fascinating view, it is feared by the locals as a cursed place. They say it’s bad luck to say negative things about this place and to pollute the beautiful area around the waterfall. Let us therefore keep this site clean and enjoy the stunning nature!
