Beyond the Bukit, the Bintang and the Bounty, Bali has some magic natural landscape for those who dare venture out. The high rainfall feeds innumerable waterfalls that tumble off the volcanoes and through dense rainforest. When you find one free from day-trippers and single use plastic, there is nothing but to leap in and let the life giving waters tumble over you.
At the base of steep, slippery stairs from Sarinbuana Eco Lodge, is this secluded gem. The stream flows from Mount Batukaru, through protected rainforest, to form three pools and small cascades. Just you, the birds, and the deep, dark jungle.
Aquaman found the water a little cool for lounging, so took charge of taking my photo. x
