The Tegenungan Waterfall is a very popular spot with locals & tourists as it is fairly close to the city, just 10 km outside Ubud. The waterfall is open from 6:30 am – 6:30 pm. However, the best times to enjoy it would be between 9:00 am – 3:00 pm.

Visitors can park their cars at an open parking lot at IDR5,000. There is no charge for motorcyclists. Lockers & toilets are available but chargeable, as well.

Walking a few steps ahead after getting our tickets, we were greeted by a very large signage of “Welcome to Tegenungan Waterfall”. Along the way to the waterfall were shops selling food, drinks, swimming paraphernalia & souvenirs.

Since we were pressed for time & I had some ankle issues, we walked to a viewing point area or location. From there, we could see a full view of the Tegenungan Waterfall from afar. There were many people at the waterfall. We could also see a wedding photo opportunity taking place! We took quite a few photos of the waterfall in the background surrounded by a lot of greenery & rocks before leaving. It was quite surreal. I could almost feel the cooling water on my skin.

The waterfall may be categorised as a small one but its gushing water is undoubtedly very strong. The water that plunges into the pool below is not very clear. However, it does provide a cool respite against the hot weather around the year. Since it is not very high, you can find thrill-seekers jumping off the cliff despite having prohibitive signs around. The water may not be deep enough to cushion the jump downwards.

Further reading suggests that one must walk down approximately 150 concrete wide steps with safety rails before reaching the waterfall area. A restaurant with an open-air design has been built near the falls. There is also a large swing for insta-worthy photos which we had missed.

It’s important to note that even if you don’t plan on going down to the waterfall, you still have to pay the entrance fee. Unfortunately due to the weather and having two small children with us, we only saw the waterfall from the viewing platform and it was very pretty.

Lush green surrounds and good vantage points to take photos. Loved the nests where you can take pics, too! Our son thought they were brilliant!

Our visit was pretty quick, in and out in a matter of 10mins (it started to pour soon after we left so we timed it well) so wasn’t the greatest visit, but would still recommend.

We had a couple of hours to kill on our trip from Ubud to Seminyak so asked our driver to take us to a waterfall and he chose here.
Entry is 20,000Rp (about $2). The walk towards the fall has heaps of market type shops and some restaurants. We had an icecream which then meant my partner could use the toilets for free otherwise it was a very small fee.
There are quite a few stairs down to the falls with several photo opportunities including a nest like structure you could sit in and have a photo and a love heart you could stand in front or behind for photos. All instagramable if you are into that (I'm not). The falls were moderately impressive but spoilt by all the commercialism including jungle swings. You could swim in the pool at the bottom of the falls although half was roped off so you couldn't get close to the falls themselves. The water was muddy looking. There was a small man made swimming area near the base of the stairs that looked much more appealing to swim in. It was an additional $2 each to walk up to the top of the falls, we elected not to having not been amazed by the bottom of the falls. My photos looked better than my memory, so if photos are your thing, go for it.
It was midday on a Friday in Australian school holidays and there were quite a few people there but I wouldn't call it packed.

Our Villa tour guide, once again came up trumps with this stunning waterfall site. Entry cost Rp. 20,000 per person, and that gave you access to the waterfall site, being able to go into the water but not too close to the actual waterfall and access to a lovey little beach club just up from the waterfall with a few lovely dip pools, good music, and good drinks.

As you can imagine this site will have tourists, as it is a tourist site after all, but don’t let that deter you from coming to see the wonderful site.

The beach club, Dtukad river club, has an extensive food and drink menu, we just had some soft drinks, sunbathed and dipped in and out of the pools which were absolutely lovely!

After paying Rp20k and running the gauntlet of stalls you descend the many concrete steps to a construction site alongside the brown, polluted river. There were plastic bags and even a dirty diaper strewn around. The waterfall itself is dramatic. It must have been beautiful once. You probably have better things to do with your day now.

Extremely disappointed to have embarked upon a long journey to see this waterfall. Hoards of people all doing photoshoots (believe it or not one was actually a bride in a full on wedding dress) amongst brown dirty water and the waterfall. Hugely disappointing. So many other beautiful places to be in ubud.

The best time to visit the waterfall is early morning when you can have it all by yourself, with no crowds around. If you have time, you must visit the nearby Kanto Lampo waterfall and Tibumana waterfall along with it. It is located next to Tegenungan village, in the south of Ubud, away from the regular hustle and bustle. It looks very impressive. However, be prepared for the crowds. The entrance fee is Rp 15,000 per person.

I have seen some really great and majestic waterfalls in Indonesia, mainly on Java...This one is not one of them. There is a restaurant built at the top, which ruins the view for me and then there are hundreds of tourists... The walk from the parking area down to the river starts with a market street, the you need to go down steep steps. The entrance costs 20.000Rp per person. You can swim there (with hundreds of other people desperate to get themselves a selfie). I would say nothing special, but then if you have never seen a waterfall before, go for it.

Depending on when you go the falls could be raging or just a normal water flow. There are many stairs to go down on both sides. So remember that what goes down must come up. If you go down one side it will cost extra to go up the other side. ($20000 Rupiah) It can get very busy and overcrowded. There are changing rooms. Overall a nice place to spend a little time.

Pros:

Reasonable entrance fee (20,000IDR)

Many photo opportunities.

Cons:

Inconveniently located.

At the entrance, we were immediately bombarded by a lot of shop owners selling their products.

Very steep and lots of staircases.

The area was not very clean and the water was very muddy.

There were long lines for people to take photos (makes it difficult to enjoy nature).

Need to pay extra if you want a better view.

There are photo areas (heart-shaped nests), swings and other things you have to pay extra for (if you want to). Ridiculous.
