Sekumpul Waterfall

Sekumpul Waterfall (also known as Gerombong Waterfall) is the most beautiful waterfall in Bali. It’s located in Lemukih Village about 2.5 hours drive from Denpasar.

The name “Sekumpul” comes from Indonesia’s translation “a lot”. This is due to the density of waterfalls in the area, which has seven. Most visitors enjoy the main two, which stand an astonishing 100 meters in height. What makes these streams unique is that they actually come from two different sources (despite their close proximity). The stream on the left comes from a mountain spring, while the stream on the right comes from a river. You can see the distinction during rainy season when the left streams remains clear, and the right turns brown (from upturned river water).

Let’s begin!

Our drive takes us past stunning landscape – rural villages, nature and rice terraces. Prepare yourself, for the journey to Sekumpul is an adventure! We’ll take dirt roads and steep stairs to get there. All the while listening the faint rumbling of the waterfall in the distance.

Once we’ve reached the bottom of the stairs, our next adventure begins. We’ll pass a small waterfall. Then, cross a small river (that’s shallow, so safe to traverse). In less than 5 minutes, we’ll arrive at Sekumpul Waterfall. This is the perfect place to relax after a long trek. Enjoy the waterfall’s steep stone cliffs covered in green foliage and mist.

This waterfall is recommended for people in moderate physical condition. We should leave early in the morning since afternoons/evenings become cloudy in this region. Pubic facilities are limited, so be prepared to use food and toilet facilities before we exit the village.

If you’d like to continue your journey, continue toward Lemukih Waterfall about 80 meters away. On the way out, we can stop by Gerombong Rice Terrace. We’d love to extend your tour to these other destinations!
