It is highly recommended to use a guide as these grandeurs of nature are located in an unspoiled area in the middle of the rainforest, away from civilization with hundreds of steps having to be managed as well as containing rapidly moving rivers that have to be crossed. Also the signs are confusing making these natural beauties difficult to reach.
The highest Cascade has a height of 80 meters or 262 feet. Once you have arrived at this sleepy place, your effort is rewarded with some outstanding scenery. It is surrounded by lush green rainforest that has an amazing fauna and flora plus the fresh water pools which are simply perfect for cooling down in are just some of the benefits that you will experience here. Due to this being an uncharted area it is one of the best places in Bali to forget about the problems of everyday life and you can feel close to nature.
