Share The Article

So, you know that Bali is famous for its sacred mountains, dense tropical jungle, and world-famous waterfalls. But did you know that Bali is home to a secret natural waterslide?

This truly hidden gem is a must-visit for all adventure lovers. Tucked away in a quiet Balinese Village, the natural waterslide reminds us that Mother Nature wants us to play!

The proper name for the natural waterslide is Water Slide Lemukih; this is how you can find it on GoogleMaps. Located in Lemukih Village, the waterslide makes for an ideal stop-off on a day trip around northern Bali.

Lemukih Village sits in Buleleng Regency in the north of Bali, around 2.5 hours from Kuta and 1.5 hours from Ubud. Yes, it is a bit of a trek, but it is so worth it!

Unlike many of Bali’s waterfalls, the waterslide is a really informal tourist attraction. No big flashy welcome signs; this hidden gem is a stretch of river running through local community lands. It is as authentic of a Bali adventure as you could wish for!

A visit to Water Slide Lemukih is the perfect way to get off the beaten path in Bali. Lemukih Village has a lot to offer too.

As an agricultural village, Lemukih is home to a speculator vista of rice terraces. Bali’s rice terraces are undeniably beautiful, even when busy with tourists. If you’re looking to soak in the greenery undisturbed by fellow tourists snapping their photos, check out the Batu Aya Rice Fields in Lemukih.

From waterslides to waterfalls, Lemukih Village has it all. The Fiji Waterfall is stunning…just stunning! Accessible via a short jungle trek.

The route is not the best signposted, so it is best to follow a local guide.

It’s worth investing in local knowledge as they know even more hidden gems to share with you as well as stories about the local landscape and communities.

Since traveling up to Lemukih Village is a bit of a mission (and well worth it), you’re going to want to make a day of it.

Make sure to include a visit to Sekumpul Waterfall and the Tukad Pasangan Waterfalls of Lemukih too. Each one is truly breathtaking and offers you a chance to see a part of Bali rarely visited by tourists.

In 2023, tourism leaders in Bali are putting a strong focus on the development of tourism villages like Lemukih Village. The move comes as a way to preserve and celebrate Balinese culture and the natural landscape.


There are over 150 tourism villages in Bali, many of which are in their pilot phase.

These emerging tourism destinations give travelers a chance to feel like explorers of yesteryear and have the kind of serendipitous travel experiences that create lifelong memories.

One of Bali’s most famous tourism villages is Penglipuran Village. Located an hour from the center of Ubud, Penglipuran Village is like a living museum.

Voted as one of the cleanest villages in the world, a visit to the pristine village is a perfect way to understand more about Balinese culture and rural life.


Penglipuran Village may not have a waterfall of its own (though it does have a bamboo forest!), but there are dozens of waterfalls within a 20-minute drive.

Taking a day trip to tour Bali’s rural villages in Bangli or Buleleng Regency is a worthwhile excursion; you can see and experience so much of the island in one day.

Ask your guide for their suggestions, or just browse on GoogleMaps for ‘hidden’ or ‘secret waterfall’.


Hidden away a scenic 20-minute drive from the heart of Penglipuran Village is Krisik Waterfall.

Entrance costs IDR 20,000 per person, and there are two mesmerizing waterfalls to enjoy.

Krisik Waterfall is perfect for those seeking a real adventure as you have to walk, in part, through the riverbed to access the waterfall hidden in the underbelly of the gorge.

More absolute nonsense. There is nobody at all in UK, EU, USA, Australia, other parts of Indonesia etc who know about "the world famous waterfalls". The people who write this rubbish should get out more. Bali is famous for gut infections, if for anything at all.

It is not all dandy at this waterslide. I suggest potential visitors look at the newest reviews on google map 'Water Slide Lemukih'.

This as many tourists have been mistreated by youngsters acting as gatekeepers asking for 150k-500k/person for access, pulling knife and threaten to slash tires in order to menace tourists! What kind of place is this?

It is about time the Bali gov. and police start taking these incidents serious. The same threatening attitude among locals can be found for other tourists destinations around.

From google, Quote "ATTENTION! TOURIST SCAMMERS! At the entrance to the slide, you will be stopped by teenage hoodlums who will lead you to a fake ticket booth. There you are offered different packages from 150k to 500k ... You can drive past the scammers, however they will chase you and as soon as you park your scooter at the bottom they will threaten to slash your tires and wave a knife around!"

I doubt any Balinese driver will help unless he is from the same village and has higher social status.

Someone may get hurt soon unless some serious action is taken.

This from Mt Batur google one star review only a few weeks back,

"I think this was quite possibly one of the most scary moments of my life. When we arrived we were met by 3-4 men [...] 3 of the guys came right into my face saying all kinds of things trying to scare me [...] My boyfriend pushed one of them in our defence and then they grabbed rocks to try and hit us over the head. A bunch of other guys all then came out and tried kicking us, grabbing rocks, sticks etc etc. We started apologising and ran away so they didn’t hurt us, but I honestly thought in that moment we were going to die.

Hmmmm, Be careful what you wish for, where i live has waterfalls and natural rainforest areas, that have in the last 6-7 years been "discovered" by the multitudes, used to be a peaceful place to live,(or visit) not so much any more. Maybe some parts of Bali should remain hard to find - if able to be found at all.
