5. Aling-Aling Waterfall: The Aling-Aling waterfall is a hidden gem and one of the best waterfalls in Bali. The waterfall is just a 2-hour drive away from Seminyak, Legian, and Kuta.

The entrance fee of around INR 50 is very cheap; a guide, however, may cost you around INR 1000.

6. Nungnung waterfall: If you are prepared to exert a little then the Nungnung waterfall will prove to be one of the best waterfalls in Bali you could ever visit. 500 steps lead visitors down to the waterfall, which while can be covered within 30 minutes can be very exhausting because of the humidity and heat inside the jungle.

Once you reach the waterfall, you can go for a swim in the beautiful but chilly pool at the bottom of the fall.

8. Tibumana Waterfall: One of the lesser-known waterfalls in Bali, Tibumana offers what many of the other famous waterfalls cannot – peace and tranquillity and the raw beauty of nature.

The trek is also very easy and short at about 10 minutes.
