Where is the Aling-Aling waterfall located?
It is located in the north of Bali, near the village of Sambangan. To be precise, Raya Desa Sambangan, Sambangan, Kec. Sukasada, Kabupaten Buleleng, Bali 81161, Indonesia
How much time is required to visit properly?
A full day trip is ideal to enjoy and try out all the other adventures and cliff jumping activities in the adrenaline pumping aura of the Aling-Aling Waterfall.
How to reach the Aling-Aling waterfall?
It is 8 kms from Sambangan City. So, you can either rent a bike from Sambangan and drive or hire a private driver which is available in plenty.
What is the best time to visit the waterfall?
The Aling-Aling waterfall is the most exciting & active during the monsoon season i.e. October to April, when it’s filled with water. Although, I suggest that sports like cliff-jumping over here is safer during the dry season i.e. May to September. If you take the proper precautions then no need to worry!
What are the fees required to visit the Aling-Aling Waterfall?
There are two entrance fee options to choose from: The first option is 125,000 – 135,000 IDR which is a guided tour down to the waterfall including sports like swimming and multiple cliff jumping. The second option is only 10,000 IDR which allows entry to the falls without a tour guide. Keep in mind that the sports are prohibited in without a guide for obvious safety reasons.
Why is this fall so special?
The Aling- Aling Waterfall is a whopping 90ft Fall for the daring guys! This fun fact is that this place is home to many other waterfalls as well. You can enjoy 4 falls at one place. This fall is known for its vicious stream of water gushing down towards the rocks. Encircled by extravagant flora and the lovely fragrance of flowers and water flowing, I am sure you will forget all your worries at least for some time. The exotic sounds and the wind gushing by will surely rejuvenate you and freshen your mood.
Some things to remember before visiting this Waterfall
If you are not an experienced swimmer, I suggest not to swim directly in the waterfall area, since the current is very strong. Nothing to worry, there are various swim spots which are under supervision. I agree cliff jumping as a sport is thrilling but I advise you to do that at your own risk since this place is famous for its heights. If you are new to Bali, having a guide will augment your tour and you will learn a lot more about this fall. I recommend going in with proper sunscreens and skin care since the temperature here is warm. Just take the proper measures and you’re ready to go.
The Aling- Aling waterfall is really a dazzling and magnetising experience for all of you! Don’t even think twice before coming to this waterfall. If you are visiting Bali for the first time, this should definitely be in your to-do list. This place is definitely worth every penny.
