Secret Bali Waterfall – Tukad Cepung

December 11, 2017

Tukad Cepung waterfall, Bali, Indonesia

 

It was another beautiful day in the magical island of Bali. A handful of us had rented a car and drove up from Canggu to Amed (north east coast of Bali) for a couple days of freediving and shipwreck exploration. On route back we drove through the mountains and spontaneously decided to make our way to a waterfall that we heard about from a fellow traveller. We only had a name, “Tukad Cepung”, and luckily it was listed on Google Maps. We love a good Bali waterfall mission.

As we parked the car, clouds started rolling in and the sky turned grey. We didn’t really mind, as more rain means stronger waterfall! We followed a clearly paved footpath down into the valley.

The footpath quickly turned into a muddy jungle trail, which eventually led us into this enchanting canyon carved out over the years of waterflow. We followed the canyon further upstream.

With giant vines hanging from above, and rays of daylight breaking through the ceiling, the canyons alone are make this spot worth the visit. However, we hear the familiar sounds of cascading water nearby, and leave our belongings on a  ledge to have a peak around the corner.

Boom! Tukad Cepung. A remarkable waterfall gently cascading down the circular cliff into a shallow pool below. There was no one else in sight.

It didn’t take us long to embrace the epic falls, and start seeing who could climb up the highest.

We decided to venture down stream to see what other gems these magical canyons may be hiding.

We found some beautiful spots with light streams flowing through pristine green jungle.
