Where is Banyumala Twin Waterfalls?
How to get to Banyumala Twin Waterfalls?
The most comfortable way to get to the waterfalls is by hiring a private taxi which can be arranged directly at your hotel or by booking online.
A private taxi for 10 hours costs about IDR 500k (US$ 34.95) depending on the distance covered. I recommend combining your visit with the Banyu Wana Amertha Waterfalls which are found only 20 minutes away.
If you’re on a budget, renting a scooter is the way to go. But you should know that the roads around North Bali are very windy and steep and you should be extra cautious when driving.
Unfortunately, the side road that leads to the waterfalls is one of the worst I’ve seen in Bali! Just picture lots of potholes and boulders and if it has been raining recently, the road will be extremely slippery. That’s why I wouldn’t recommend riding a scooter to get there UNLESS you’re confident that you can handle the road condition.
Scooter rentals in Bali start from IDR 60k (US$ 4.20) per day or cheaper if you rent for longer periods of time.
Make sure to bring your international driver’s license and to always wear a helmet.
Banyumala Twin Waterfalls Entrance fee
The entrance fee to visit Banyumala Twin Waterfalls is IDR 30k (US$ 2.10) and IDR 2k (US$0.15) for scooter parking.
What to expect at Banyumala Twin Waterfalls?
After paying the entrance fee, take the dirt track that winds through the jungle. The trek down is quite steep with the edge only secured by loose wooden railings.
At some point, you’ll come across a few waterfalls seeping out of the rock wall to finally make their way onto the path. This part is very slippery, so a good pair of hiking shoes is a must.
After a 15 minutes’ hike, you’ll finally arrive at one of the most enchanting settings! Surrounded by lush and colorful plants, the twin waterfalls flow directly into a massive plunge pool.
Make sure to jump into the water for a nice and refreshing swim. Since Banyumala Twin Waterfalls are located in the mountainous region of North Bali, the water might actually be colder than you think!
Tip: Make sure to explore the path opposite the main area where two hidden waterfalls are located! Most people don’t bother going past the main waterfalls, so you can have the place all to yourself!
Best time to visit Banyumala Twin Waterfalls
It’s possible to visit the waterfalls at any time of the year. But if you want to experience Banyumala at its most powerful, try to plan your visit during the rainy season which is around December to March. But keep in mind that the path can be very muddy and slippery during these months.
Since the Banyumala Twin Falls have become very popular lately, I recommend visiting very early in the morning around 6 to 10 a.m before the crowds start to roll in.
Where to stay near Banyumala Twin Waterfalls?
I highly recommend staying in Bedugul if you want to explore the waterfalls in North Bali. Bedugul is a small village full of gorgeous rice terraces and is located about 45 minutes from the Banyumala Twin Waterfalls.
Pondok Nyoman Guesthouse is very affordable and costs only US$ 25 per night! Situated on top of a hill with an incredible rice field view, the hotel offers spacious rooms with a large double bed, private bathroom, Wi-Fi and free breakfast!
There you go, your complete guide to Banyumala Twin Waterfalls! These are among the best waterfalls in Bali, so make sure to add them to your bucket list!
