GitGit Waterfall, Singaraja

GitGit waterfall located in Singaraja is by far one of the easiest waterfalls to discover. It’s easily reachable by road is one of Bali’s most famous tourist attractions.

The Sekumpul waterfall is one of my favourites, in my opinion, it’s one of Bali’s most beautiful waterfalls. Getting up close to this incredible waterfall does take some legwork, but it’s definitely worth it. Make sure you’ve got the right clothing on as you’ll be required to cross dirt roads and paths, lots of slippery rocks and of course the rivers you’ll need to cross close by. It’s quite a trek, but thankfully, you’ve got the locals you can rely on which are more than happy to take you there in exchange for a small fee.

They’ll also be happy to take pictures for you and depending who you go with, some will also give you a fresh young coconut after exploring the waterfalls.

One of the best Bali waterfalls for adrenaline seekers!

The Carat Waterfalls are situated very close to the village of Tamblang within Singaraja. The journey to get there can be a little tricky, you’ll be required to trek around eight hundred metres, which includes various obstacles including a wobbly bamboo bridge and steep cliffs, so this one is for those who are a little more experienced. When you arrive, there are two waterfalls, a small and large one, along with a small pool at the bottom, again perfect for those who would love to go for a swim.
