Easily accessible by road, Gitgit Waterfall is one of the most popular in Bali. It’s around 35m high surrounded by lush jungle. Home to a local troop of monkeys, you might see some of them drinking downstream or in the trees around the falls.
There’s a decent-sized car park with public toilets available for a small fee and the walk down to the foot of the falls is around 500m. There are plenty of locals looking to be your guide, which generally costs around IDR100k per person and is useful if you might need some help, but it’s not mandatory and you can walk yourself.
It’s important to get here as early as possible, because even though it is a long way, it’s becoming increasingly popular, and in the afternoons can become crowded. The entrance fee is IDR 25.000 at the time of writing, and it isn’t mandatory to hire a local guide to show you down the path to the valley floor and the foot of the waterfall.
It’s around a 15-20 minute walk from the car park down to the foot of the falls and isn’t too difficult (Sekumpul Waterfall in contrast is much harder).
