Explore Bali: Munduk Waterfall

Spread the love

The North of Bali is known to be beautiful! So far, North Bali is one of my favorite spots around the island. Munduk is a quiet and lush area where not many people dare to wander. It’s a shame really because the area is breathtaking. Known for its scenic roads including incredible lookouts, it’s also a great spot for a waterfall adventure.  There are many impressive waterfalls in Munduk. This time, let’s talk about Munduk Waterfall.


Where is Munduk Waterfall?

Munduk Waterfall is located in Munduk, Bali. It’s in the North of Bali. It took about 1h20 minutes from Canggu to get there. Getting around Bali is quite easy, but it always takes longer than expected! To get to the starting point of the waterfall, you should add Munduk Waterfall Parking to your GPS. We first put the start of the trekking point which was basically “nowhere”. We ended up having to drive an extra 15 minutes to get to the waterfall.


When is the best time to visit Munduk Bali Waterfall?

As always, I reckon the morning during the dry season is the best time to visit Munduk Waterfall.  Although, I was there in the afternoon and there were quite a few people there. Also, the sunlight was pretty intense which makes it harder for photographers.

The way down is super easy. It starts with a little dirt path and ends in stairs.  It was a short and easy “hike” down. Munduk Waterfall is very pretty. Although, Nungnung Waterfall is still at the top of my list of favorite waterfalls in Bali.

How long does it take to go up: 10 minutes depending on how fit you are!

Tips for Driving a Scooter in Bali


We got there via scooter. I’ve been exploring Bali by scooter for a while now, and here are a few tips when driving around Bali:

  • Use headphones to follow the indications on Google Maps.  This way, you won’t have to stop every 3 minutes to look at the map.
  • Make sure you have good sunglasses.  The sun rays can be rough in Bali. Also, it’s normal to hit bugs or to deal with a lot of dush while driving in Bali, so having sunglasses can be super handy!
  • You might want to grab a mask.
  • Make sure your body is sunshine ready. Put on lots of sunblocks, otherwise, you might turn into a krab.

If you don’t drive a scooter…

If you aren’t confident enough to drive a scooter, you could hire a driver for the day. You can normally find a driver in Facebook groups or using apps such as Grab or GoJek (or you could also ask the staff at your accommodation). If you want to see many waterfalls in one day, you could also book a waterfalls tour!

There are a few options, but they aren’t around Munduk:
