Bali's Most Beautiful Waterfall
The Gitgit waterfall is often referred to as the most visited waterfall in Bali, and the Aling-Aling waterfall the most fun waterfall. Now, let us introduce to you Bali’s most beautiful waterfall: the Sekumpul waterfalls. Sekumpul in Bahasa Indonesia means “group” and this waterfall consists of 7 waterfalls shattered around in the area. Before you get closer to these amazing spots, from a distance you can see a collection of waterfalls – 2 are Sekumpul waterfalls, 3 are Fiji waterfalls and 2 have yet to be named. Foreigners often call it Seven Point waterfall, which fits the name of Sekumpul.

Located 20 kilometers south of Singaraja, Sekumpul waterfall is indeed very popular. Its location is quite hidden and access to the waterfall requires extra effort so that it becomes a fun trekking adventure. From this collection of waterfalls in Buleleng, the closest distance to the main road is two waterfalls, the other five waterfalls are located separately and require a little extra trekking. It only takes about 5 minutes to walk, to get to the other waterfalls. So, if you visit here, you can enjoy all these natural beauties in one area.
It takes good stamina to get to the Sekumpul waterfall, by descending hundreds of steps and a path of about 300 meters. One trail leads you down a hundred or more steps and at some point you even have to cross a stream. This trek leads you to gazebos, where you can sit down and relax while taking in the breathtaking panorama view of the Sekumpul waterfall. You can follow this trail by yourself, or you can ask a local to take you to the waterfalls (they will ask you to pay them around IDR 200,000 for their effort). An alternative trail takes you down to the base of the falls, but you’ll have to traverse down more steps. This 3-hour trail is absolutely stunning though and it’s totally worth the effort; it leads you through rice paddies and durian, rambutan, and coffee plantations, all perfect sceneries for camera addicts.
