Many water falls can be found in Bali, the only problem is the location as most of these are in highland area, close to the mountain, mostly not in a good location to be combined with other sightseeing tours. Only Tegenungan water fall is located near the sightseeing route and is located on lowland area of Bali. The island does not have big river, it is due to the size of the island is only around 5,000 sq meters, so the waterfalls are also not big, but mostly creating a beautiful and magic views, beside the ambiance to reach it is still preserved well as nature it is. For example is a 25 meters fall at the river of Melangit, Banjar Kuning, Desa Taman Bali, Kecamatan Bangli.
This are is easy to reach, one can driver to the city of Bangli, then further 3 kms to Desa Taman Bali. One can take a walk to the fall from this Desa around 500 meters or driving to Banjar Kuning, and from here walk around 300 meters. There is a drink factory with the name Non Min, so it is also a good indicator to find the water fall. Walking is a good way to reach, as one can enjoy a very beautiful nature among cloves plantations and evergreen scenery. There are wild monkeys around the falls that visitors always give them souvenirs such as peanuts, banana, cakes and others. And this is actually not for them and local village head do not realize this will make the monkeys lazy.
This water fall is not well known by outsiders, as the local people preserve this as for their environment and local recreation only. The natural preservation by local people is practiced in a very tight adat regulation or customary low with god’s sanctions, that is why in most of unique natural heritages of Bali as well as water fall here at Banjar Kuning normally built Hindu temple, as an indication that the nature is being protected by the people.
