Untitled-4-sing.jpgExplore The North Bali!!! Singsing waterfall is one of north Bali’s hidden treasure, which is a great option for nature lovers and those with a penchant for adventure while staying around Lovina beach or the capital of Singaraja.Singsing waterfall is located only 15 minutes by car or motorbike from Kalibuluk in Lovina Bali. From Ngurah Rai International airport spend time around 3 hours 10 minutes.

Singsing waterfall is located up in the forested hills of the Cempaga village in Banjar district, Buleleng regency, some 50 km west of the town hub and main beach resort areas. Reaching the site requires a 20 minutes trek on foot, starting at the rural neighbourhood and along a moderate forest trail. Although not very high or large when compared to other popular waterfalls found throughout Bali’s central highlands, the whole  site of Singsing waterfall offers a pleasant respite.

Untitled-3-sing.jpgBest time to go is during the wet season (October through April), when the waterfall pours into a rocky pool. Moreover, a narrow trail over the waterfall leads to a spacious upper creek with lava stone pools that you can also soak in.

The hike starts opposite the parking area and follows a concrete ditch to the first tier. The second tier can be accessed by following a makeshift trail cut into the rock on the left side of the first tier for another 3-4 minutes. The first tier is easily accessible by anyone but the second tier requires some agility to negative the rocky trail.

Untitled-2-sing.jpgWhen the dry season takes over Singsing waterfall may erratically reduce to trickles. Its upper creek however, still offers a unique setting with its pools with dark and smooth textured cliff faces on both sides. Birdsong and nature sounds against the drops and trickles of the pools add to the soothing ambiance of this hidden sanctuary. Back at the starting point are local ‘warung’ food stalls selling cold drinks and snacks.

This is simple waterfall, easy to find. There is sign and you can park a bike at the bottom for a donation fee. People will offer to guide you but it isn’t that necessary, pretty simple to follow the canal up to the waterfall, a guide may give you some history though.you can cross the dam and go up some steps to view from above. Will you visited in rain, but it looks like it might be nice to swim in the pool in sunshine.
