Tukad Cepung Waterfall
Hidden from Plain Sight
The Tukad Cepung Waterfall is hidden away from commercial tourists and is not directly exposed outside like other waterfalls, it is more like in a rock cave and hidden. Therefore, worth adding it to your Bali bucket list. Located a mere 30 kilometers north-west of Ubud, it’s easily accessible from any place in the south of Bali. The Tukad Cepung waterfall is located near the Tibumana Waterfall and these two falls can perfectly be combined in one trip. This amazing tourist attraction is open everyday from 8 am – 5 pm. Because of the location of this waterfall, it is not possible for night visits.

Getting to the point of first sight involves a mini-adventure as you have to complete a trek for about 20 minutes through Bali’s lush jungle, down into a ravine and through the cliffs that guard the waterfall. These cliffs actually make it look like the waterfall is in a cave, and with sunlight coming through the openings, the most enchanting views can be witnessed once you walk down the stairs into the cliff.
The water accumulates within the cliffs, so we do not recommend visiting this waterfall during the monsoon season when the water level can get quite high. During other seasons however, it’s a pleasure to take off your shoes, wear comfortable clothing and walk into the water to cool your feet. You’ll experience a sense of peace and tranquility and be able to admire this stunning waterfall from below.
Apart from waterfalls, there are several interesting areas in Tukad Cepung that can be used as photo opportunities. One of them is a large rock covered with moss. On this large rock, sunlight shines from above giving an enchanting backdrop. You can pose either sitting or standing, just wait for the moment when the light shines directly on that area.
