A Complete Guide to Leke Leke Waterfall- Bali
Just outside of laidback Ubud, lies one of Bali’s best-kept secrets, Leke Leke Waterfall. There is something so magical about arriving at a stunning waterfall and then having it all to yourself. All the worries and drama you may have had, disappear, and you are just there, totally present.
HOW TO GET TO LEKE LEKE WATERFALL- BALI
Leke Leke Waterfall is a fair distance away from anything other than more waterfalls, so in order to get there, you will either need to hire a driver or rent a motorbike and prepare for an adventure filled day in the mountains. I highly recommend a motorbike as you just have more freedom, if even you have a private driver. For some tips and tricks on renting a motorbike in Bali click HERE.
If you aren’t as comfortable on a motorbike or you have a big group of people and decide to hire a private driver, it should cost around 700,000 Rupiah for the whole day. It is very simple to set this up via your accommodation or by visiting a tour desk in town.
It is roughly an hour drive from Ubud and about an hour and a half drive from Canggu area. It is a beautiful drive so be sure to stop and take some photos along the way.
I have attached a map below for the exact location of Leke Leke Waterfall. Zoom in for details.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT LEKE LEKE WATERFALL- BALI
Leke Leke Waterfall is still on the incline but quickly gaining popularity, and for good reason, it is absolutely stunning. When you arrive you will see a large entryway on the street with a beautiful entranceway covered in bright candy red flowers.
The parking at Leke Leke Waterfall is free but the entrance fee to the falls is 30,000 Rupiah per person. You will see it’s totally worth it when you arrive, they really maintain the trails and they have been planting more and more shrubbery daily. There is also an option to go on one of those large Bali swings for 50,000 Rupiah per person, but we passed on that.
HOT TIP– They do have a restroom at Leke Leke Waterfall at the entrance just grab some napkins from the little restaurant and you’re set!
The hike was roughly 15 minutes and is mainly steps that they have installed. Minimal efforts and maximum reward.
WHERE TO STAY AROUND LEKE LEKE WATERFALL- BALI
No matter where you’re staying in Bali it is going to be a bit of a drive to get to Leke Leke Waterfall. When we visited the Leke Leke Waterfall we were staying in Ubud at TOYA VILLA SUWETA and it was absolutely lovely. Check the link to see current pricing and availability.
It is also very possible to mission to Leke Leke Waterfall from Canggu area. If that is the case I highly recommend staying at UDARA BALI. This place is an absolute sanctuary with 4 different pools and a massive sauna, as well as daily yoga!
