Nungnung Waterfall, Bali Overview

Between Bedugul and Ubud lies Air Terjun Nungnung, a beautiful waterfall to refresh your senses. Located about 900m above sea level,the waterfall is surrounded by lush greenery and is a great spot for nature-lovers. However, the water is a little rough for swimming, and the 500-step pathway to access it can prove to be quite the exercise.

Crashing from a height of 50m the waterfall makes for a powerful yet, endearing sight. Surrounded by beautiful rocky and green landscapes the Nungnung Waterfall interestingly is also devoid of large crowds. The flight of around 500 steps that takes one to the waterfall is one of the main reasons why the Nungnung Waterfall is relatively less crowded.
