  • The walk down to the falls is easy and pleasing. I was lucky enough to be at the falls alone for half an hour. The water is cool and turbulent. 
  • Beautiful and good to visit if it's on your route. Go do the walk towards the waterfalls only instead of guide that offer themselves at the entrance that is fine to do. It's a reasonable walk to leg so you should be fine!

  • Are broken with the roller of Lovina out. Nice trip, if you're nearby anyway! Admission is p. p. 10 k (how many public facilities in Bali). A well constructed path from 500 meters takes visitors past souvenir shops and kiosks – all costs 20 k or $1, the usual cheering ;-) The waterfall is pretty, 30-40 meters high. More than 1h is not necessary on the spot! The roller can be parked by the way easily on-site!

  • Gitgit means cold water. Nice waterfall. Clean water, easy path all concrete. Slippery when it's rain. If you dive in that cold water river be careful with the leech. Ask your spouse to check your back :)
  • Gitgit is one of Bali’s most impressive and highest waterfalls, located just 10 kilometres south of Singaraja. Follow the narrow path into the jungle and you’ll pass colourful souvenir stands, clove trees and coffee plantations on your way to the waterfall. Soon you will feel a cooling mist dispersing through the air, and suddenly the gushing falls come into view. Stop at the rest area at the base of the falls to snap some photos, enjoy cold drinks and snacks or dip your feet in the cooling river, or head further up the hill to see the lovely multi-tiered Gitgit Twin Waterfalls. Must See Waterfall in Bali No. 1 - Gitgit Waterfall Bali Indonesia (Air Terjun Gitgit Bali) A Long Walk but Worth the Hike - Recommended to Newbie’s who want to explore a very popular attraction in Bali. You probably have already heard about Gitgit Waterfall as it is one of the most famous tourist attractions in the North of Bali. The Cascading Gitgit Waterfall is located in the Gitgit countryside, Sukasada district, Buleleng regency, about 11 Kilometers from Singaraja, Bali’s former capital, or about 75 kilometers from Nusa Dua, the southern part of Bali. Gitgit Waterfall is located in a plateau, about 300 meters above sea level. It is the height of about 40 meters, surrounded by tropical trees and a lush green environment which has the charm of an undiscovered place. Gitgit Waterfall is a must see attraction. The way to Gitgit Waterfall is paved with lots of stalls and on either side of the path you can find some lush plantations (coffee and cloves). The sellers are not aggressive at all and you can finally enjoy a 15 minute walk without getting hassled by anyone. Even if the stairs and the path to Gitgit waterfall are well maintained, high heels or flip flops would definitely be the wrong choice. A Gazebo close to Air Terjun Gitgit offers you the perfect opportunity to stop and enjoy a wonderful waterfall view and if you are lucky you can even see some wild monkeys. Local legend has it that couples bathing together under the waterfall, will separate soon after their visit. Gitgit waterfall is the perfect family attraction as kids can play in the water and romp around but please be aware of the slippery rocks. Gitgit is the most popular Waterfall in Bali and it’s definitely worth a visit. However Bali has some nicer waterfalls to offer, hidden beauties, waiting for you to discover them. During the rainy season all waterfalls have a larger flow of water gushing down them and the really show the full force of nature. Recommended things to bring: - Trainers - Swimwear - Towels
  • Nothing special. Very small waterfall. Instead of nice waterfall, there are too many ugly shops. However, the Luwak coffee shop at the enterance is very nice. Only 30000 Rupiah. By the way, there are several enterances for Gitgit waterfall, but if you follow the google map, it must be wrong.
  • Very nice waterfall. I've seen comments about guides. I was not approached by any (low season) and everything was very quiet, but if they offer you a guide don't take it. It's a very simple and short walk, all concrete.
  • DO NOT TAKE A GUIDE!!! It's a daylight robbery!!! 600k for 2 person. The path is easy to find (all concrete), just a bit slippery. They will tell you that you won't find your way, but you will. Definitely!!! (0* for the pricy guides) The waterfalls are very nice. Definitely a must see. Take your time finding all 3 waterfalls. (5* for the waterfalls)
