Sekumpul Waterfall Tour

Sekumpul

In this tour, we will visit the northern part of Bali where there are several waterfalls available to visit. We choose Sekumpul waterfall because it is definitely the best waterfall in the island.

 

Pick up time will be at around 8 o'clock in the morning (depending on your hotel location). The drive will take you through winding roads and cool mountainous area of Bali. On the way to get there you will also pass several interesting spots like coffee plantation, Jatiluwih rice terrace and Bedugul with its beautiful view of Ulun Danu water temple. You can optionally visit these sites if you are interested (on the way to/from your hotel).

First optional stop is visiting the Jatiluwih, a huge extensive rice field which has been recognized by UNESCO as one of the world heritages. Here you can see stunning view of rice terraces unfolding from the foot of mountain until the coastal side. Jatiluwih, one of the most picturesque areas lies about 20 kilometers north of Tabanan, in Bali’s western region. Situated majestically in the hills 850 meters above sea level, Jatiluwih means ”really beautiful”. An appropriate name indeed with expansive views across terraced rice paddies, undulating hills and valleys. Arrive at lunchtime and enjoy a meal in the restaurant while soaking up the view, cool climate and fresh air. It is stretch from the foothill of the volcano of Batukaru to the south coast. The name Jatiluwih originally mean “sangat indah” in Indonesian or really marvelous.

 Jatiluwih is also famous of its organic agriculture system due to its location in the plateau of Mount Batukaru which is suitable for the agriculture development. As Jatiluwih is located right at the foot of Mt. Batukaru, you will also get a beautiful scenery of the mountain area along with its fresh air and natural panorama.

Second optional stop is visiting the Bedugul which is very famous of its Ulun Danu water temple. This temple is dedicated to the goddess of the lake (Ida Batari Dewi Ulun Danu). The temple was built in 17th century to worship the main Hindu trinity, Brahma-Vishnu-Shiva, as well as the goddess of lake Dewi Danu. The sight and cool atmosphere here have made the lake and this temple a favourite sightseeing and recreational destination as well as a top spot for photo opportunity.

After visiting the temple, you can opt to have lunch at a restaurant overlooking the lake Bratan (included).

It will take around 45 minutes to 1 hour drive from Bedugul until we get to our main destination which is the Sekumpul Waterfall. Once we get there, we will start the 3 hours trek (shorter trek is also available) to explore the waterfalls and it's surroundings. Sekumpul itself means 'collection' as there are more than one waterfall. After a few minutes walk through small roads, local people's houses, plantations and small river; you will be greeted by the waterfall duo of Sekumpul.

Waterfall duo is the first waterfall we will visit from up close. You need to pass some muddy path alongside the river and a big tree before getting to the rocky river which block the access to the waterfall.

We will need to cross that rocky river to get to the base of waterfal duo. Some people can cross the river by just stepping on the rocks without touching the water. If you are wearing shoes, take them off before crossing the river.
