The Leke Leke Waterfall in Bali is a relatively undiscovered and magical gem located in central Bali. The waterfall is tucked between two cliffs covered in green leaves and the water flows calmly compared to other waterfalls in Bali. The vibe at the grounds of the Leke Leke Waterfall is very serene and dreamy, making it one of the most memorable waterfall experiences in Bali.
This complete guide covers all the info you need to visit this waterfall, from opening hours and entrance fees to how to get there and what you can expect from a visit to the Leke Leke Waterfall.
How to get to Leke Leke Waterfall
The Leke Leke Waterfall is located in central Bali, right in between Ubud and Munduk. The waterfall is easy to find as the entrance is near the main road going towards north Bali. You can reach the waterfall by motorbike or car and takes about one hour from both Canggu area and Ubud.
Motorbikes can be rented from 50K IDR (€3,50 EUR) per day. However, if you’re not comfortable driving a motorbike you can also hire a driver for the day. Prices for hiring a driver usually start from 500K IDR (€35 EUR) for a day.
Opening hours Leke Leke Waterfall
The opening hours to the Leke Leke Waterfall are 7AM-5PM. If you’re an early bird and want to visit the waterfall before opening hours, you can still get in as there are no gates. However, make sure you pay the entrance fee on your way out.
Entrance fee Leke Leke Waterfall
The entrance fee to the Leke Leke Waterfall is 30K IDR (€2 EUR) per person. Parking at the waterfall is free.
The entrance fee to this waterfall is relatively expensive considering you can’t really swim at the waterfall. However, the grounds are well-maintained and it definitely was one of my favorite waterfalls I’ve visited in Bali. Bonus: it’s still lesser known than other waterfalls so there’s a chance you have it to yourself during your visit.
What to expect
Once you enter the grounds of the waterfall, you’ll first find a warung and some photo spots with a swing and birds nest. From here you can follow a path leading you all the way down to the waterfall. I’d say the hike is fairly easy but consists of quite some steps. The path leads you through the jungle and is very peaceful and quiet, with only the sound of birds and the waterfall. It takes around 15-20 minutes to reach the waterfall.
We were there during dry season, but I can imagine the trail can be muddy and slippery when it has rained. Wooden sticks can be taken at the start of the trail to offer some extra comfort.
As you approach the waterfall, you have to cross a few bamboo bridges in order to reach the waterfall. Once you’re there, there’s a lookout point to admire the waterfall. You’ll have to climb down a few slippery rocks in order to get close to the waterfall.
Although you can get into the water, there aren’t many options to go for a proper swim. Instead, it’s the perfect waterfall to just explore and take some of your best waterfall photos. This might be one of the most photogenic waterfalls of Bali, so make sure to get some for yourself too.
