Nungnung Waterfall, a tourist destination off the beaten path, is one of the highest waterfalls in Bali that is worthy of a visit especially if you want to see Bali Regency’s hidden nature spots.
45 kilometres away from Denpasar City, way past beautiful rice fields and the Sangeh Monkey Forest, lies Nungnung Waterfall, a stunning 70-metre waterfall surrounded by the rich greenery of the rainforest. The way to Nungnung Waterfall is a bit of a challenge – you have to go down 486 steps – but it will be totally worth it once you are welcomed by the waterfalls’ roaring waters, the relaxing sounds, and the fresh, clean atmosphere of the place. The fact that Nungnung Waterfall isn’t as crowded as other attractions makes it a perfect place for a quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of Bali.
