    Great view from the top when you first arrived. It’s quite a steps down to the actual waterfall. The water is clear and cool. Remember, once you get down there, you have to make your way up some steep steps! There are also attractions to try, the swings.

      Thanks for share your experience and describing the Tegenungan waterfall.
      My last visit i didn’t saw the swing.
      My friend (Justin) said that swing existed this year.
      Thanks for updated information about the swing in Tegenungan waterfall.

    I’m the person who shocked to Tegenungan waterfall atmosphere. I thought it’s gonna be quiet place where I can listen to the sound of waterfall or bird chirping. But, I heard super loud banging music at this waterfall. The river club should be the one who responsible to this situation. Why the local people or Banjar not complaining about this issue?

    1. kunzbali Post author

      Well, it’s true.
      I don’t feel comfort too.
      Better you arrive before 9 AM, when the river club haven’t turn on the music yet.

      I think the river club giving a lot of money for Banjar (sub-village).
      It become a big income for Banjar itself.
      Also they have an agreement before the run this business.
      That’s why they can’t complain about this issue.
