Tibumana Waterfall

The falls here are scenic, but not overly spectacular, what makes the journey here worthwhile is, well, the journey. Passing charming villages, the roads narrow and the picturesque landscape changes to green and more green. Rice fields, coconut palms, banana trees and temples. Bali at its bucolic best.

From the car park near the Pura Dalem, where an entry booth charges 10,000 rupiah, a cement path leads on an enjoyable short trek down to the river peppered with flowers, bamboo groves, birds and butterflies. The path splits–take the path to the left to the waterfall. First you will pass a smallish jungle cascade falling through creepers and vines to a shallow pool. Continue along the path, for a more powerful torrent spilling into a swimming hole. The area is quite pretty.A change room is available if you’d like a swim, and a bamboo hut offers a shady rest spot. Take a sarong and sash, so you can take the other branch of the path where steep steps lead to a holy spring at a confluence in the river. We thought this spot was delightful with shallow rapids and large mossy boulders and happily enjoyed it in sunny solitude.
