Nungnung Waterfall – Bali

Another favorite spot in Bali turned out to be the Nungnung waterfall near Ubud. For reasons unknown it is not as popular as the other waterfalls which adds to its charm since you won’t find big crowds here and you are left to explore the area at your own sweet pace. A quick warning though: there are lots and lots and lots of stairs involved (maybe the reason why it isn’t so popular). So it is not ideal for older aged people. On your way to the waterfall it is mostly climbing down all the stairs so you don’t really feel anything but the way up is a different story. We had to stop a couple of times to catch our breath. Luckily there are gazebo-type hut-lets that have been erected at regular intervals so you can easily find place to sit down, relax and enjoy the views.

The Nungnung waterfalls are easily found on Google maps and there is no need to stop and ask for directions at any point. We drove from our hotel in Ubud to the waterfalls on our two-wheeler and it took us about 40-50 minutes to reach our destination. Plenty of space to park. You have to purchase an entry ticket of a very nominal amount. Don’t forget to carry a bottle of water for your journey back. It is also a good idea to wear something light, comfortable and which you can take off and put on easily if you intend to take a dip in the water. My cotton shirt dress by ‘Life’ brand from Shoppers Stop was ideal for this.

The waterfall itself is quite magnificent. If you are feeling a bit adventurous you can climb across a few big rocks and boulders and make your way right to the end and even go under the waterfall. There is also space slightly away from the waterfall where you can take a dip into the cool water which is extremely welcoming since the climb down tends to get quite humid and hot. We relaxed in the cool water for around 10 minutes during which we saw about 2 groups of people come and go.

Definitely a must-visit for anybody staying in Ubud. You will not be disappointed. Plus it will be a great workout! Here are some pics from our visit.
