Tukad Cepung Waterfall access routes

This isn't too difficult, and it's clearly marked out. This waterfall in Bali is not a secret because it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Ubud. Every time we visit Bali, we rent a scooter. Depending on who you rent from in Ubud center, this usually costs us between 80.000IDR - 150.000 IDR per day.

We completely understand if you are uncomfortable riding a scooter in Bali. You can also hire a driver for the day, so don't worry. For eight hours, this typically costs around 600.000 IDR. For families or large groups, this is ideal. If you plan to hire a driver, we strongly advise that you make the most of the day by exploring all the best nearby attractions, including the waterfalls near Ubud.

  •  It takes about 48 minutes to get there directly from Ubud Center, which is not too bad. The worst part of the journey is typically the traffic-filled Ubud center. If you leave early—which we highly advise—you will avoid the traffic and have a pleasant, uneventful ride.

What to expect at the waterfall at Tukad Cepung

Okay, the moment we've all been waiting for. Do you need to go to Tukad Cepung? YES! We visited this waterfall for the first time in 2017, and even though a lot has changed, it is still incredibly beautiful. Although this location sees a lot of visitors every day, it is not as popular as the waterfalls in Munduk Bali (Northern Bali). Due to its distinctive formation, it is still something we wouldn't miss. After parking and paying the entrance fee of 10,000 IDR, there is still some work to be done. They had made major changes when we returned in 2019. The entire route down is now nicely paved. It only takes a little over 20 minutes to complete the hike at a leisurely pace.

When the sun peeks through the trees on really clear days, it's a truly surreal sight to behold. This typically occurs between 9:30 and 11:00 AM. Make sure to arrive at the location at 9 AM if you want to see the light beams.

When best time to go to Tukad Cepung?

 Like the majority of the locations close to Ubud Center, you must arrive as soon as it opens if you want to take a great photo or enjoy some alone time ( Unless you want to catch sun rays, then you have to go at 9:30 AM ). It is highly recommended to go there right when it opens, at 6 am. Although you might see a few photographers there, the main tourist rush doesn't begin until around 10 AM.
