Git Git Waterfall

Our rating:

Powerful Git Git Waterfall is one of the most popular spots of the North Bali tour route, but if you time it right, it may be possible to enjoy in relative solitude -- or with fewer of the hordes, anyway.

Easily reached, about 12 kilometres south of Singaraja on the road to Bedugul, a further 20 kilometres away, it makes a good detour if you’re travelling in either direction. From the main carpark, a one kilometre well-signposted cement path passes a ticket booth, and meanders though picturesque jungle, clove plantations and a plethora of stalls with somewhat insistent traders selling mass produced handicrafts.

The path is relatively easy to navigate, but includes a large number of stairs which could be difficult for the less mobile. The 35-metre single cascade impressively pounds into a small icy, but rocky pool in which it’s possible to swim. A cooling mist of water spray engulfing the entire area is refreshing on a hot day. Change rooms and toilets are nearby and can be used for 2,000 rupiah per person.

As with many natural sites in Bali, this area is considered sacred to local Hindus, and a small temple and holy rock wrapped in poleng cloth and covered in offerings flank the path near the falls.

The best time to visit is early in the day before 10:00 when most stalls open or the tourist buses start to roll up.

Git Git Waterfall can be reached via bemo from Singaraja or Bedugul — worth a look if you’re passing by or as a stopping point on a daytrip around the north of Bali. It’s definitely beautiful and justifiably popular but not really worthy of a separate dedicated trip. Allow 40 minutes plus swimming or shopping time.

For more impressive waterfalls in the region (that are worth a dedicated trip), Sekumpul Waterfalls are a further 18 kilometres from Singaraja.
