Kanto Lampo Waterfall Bali: A Complete Guide

Last Updated on July 24, 2023 by Tina

Two weeks ago I posted on my Instagram stories some photos taken during our visit to Kanto Lampo Waterfall and some of my followers were asking about it. Kanto Lampo Waterfall is an enchanting natural attraction located in the Gianyar Regency of Bali, Indonesia. It is a 40-minute drive from Ubud, so you can include it in your itinerary during a day trip. To make the most of your trip, I have prepared this complete guide to Kanto Lampo Waterfall Bali.

How to Get to Kanto Lampo Waterfall Bali

Kanto Lampo Waterfall is around one and a half hours by car from Kuta or Seminyak and approximately 40 minutes from Ubud. You can reach it by renting a scooter, hiring a private driver, or using a ride-hailing app like Grab or GoJek.

You won’t be spending the whole day in Kanto Lampo so if you’re hiring a private driver, I recommend doing it with other attractions in and near Ubud such as Tirta Empul Temple, Monkey Forest, and Tegallalang Rice Terraces. When we visited Kanto Lampo Waterfall, we also visited Tirta Empul Temple. We finished the tour in four hours.

With Klook’s Private Car Charter, you can choose between 6, 10, and 12 hours duration. Plan your itinerary with your desired duration accordingly.

Best Time to Visit Kanto Lampo Waterfall

The best time to visit Kanto Lampo Waterfall is during the dry season of Bali which is from April to September. You can visit it any time of the year but keep in mind that higher water levels during the rainy season may make it difficult to reach the waterfall. Also, the path can get slippery when it’s raining.

Also, if you want to avoid the crowd, better to go there early, before 9:00 AM is recommended. The site can get crowded later in the day, and you’ll have to queue to have your picture taken by the waterfalls.

Opening Times

Kanto Lampo Waterfall is open daily from 7:00 to 18:00.

Entry Fees

As of our visit to the waterfall last month (June 2023), you need to pay IDR 20,000 (~USD 1.40 / ~Php 79)* to access the waterfall area. You can also do a prewedding shoot or special photo there and the fee is IDR 300,000 (~USD 20.55 / ~Php 1,181). Shooting a video is IDR 1,000,000 (~USD 68.50 / ~Php 3,940) while shooting a film costs IDR 3,000,000 (~USD 205.50 / ~Php11,810).

Exploring the Kanto Lampo Waterfall Bali

Kanto Lampo Waterfall is a multi-tier waterfall. It is not as tall as other waterfalls in Bali, but the rugged rock formation where the water flows creates an enchanting natural backdrop. This is the second waterfall I’ve visited in Bali, and I’m glad my friend invited me to join her. It was really beautiful, super Instagrammable that’s why the place gets really busy with tourists.

Getting to the waterfalls is very easy. It is just a short and relatively easy walk from the parking area and takes around 5 minutes. The path is cemented so it is okay if you are wearing flip-flops. However, it involves going down the stairs so I don’t recommend high-heeled footwear when visiting this place.

What’s nice about Kanto Lampo Waterfall is that lockers are available that you can use for a fee so you don’t have to worry about your things getting wet. Just leave everything in the locker and bring only your camera or mobile phone if you plan on taking pictures.

Also, if you are traveling alone, there are local guides that are great at taking pictures and videos. They will even teach you how to pose. You just need to give them a tip. And the amount is up to you. I think most people give them around IDR 20,000 to 50,000, and I have read of one who gave the guide IDR 100,000 because she was extremely satisfied with her photos.

You have to be patient though because you’ll have to queue to have a picture. They don’t set a limit on how long you could stay to take pictures, and there are some who take forever.

Below are some of the photos that our guide took during our visit to the waterfalls.

Tips For Visiting Kanto Lampo Waterfall

  • Make sure you bring a change of clothes, towel, and swimwear if you plan on having a picture with the waterfalls as your backdrop as you will surely get wet.
  • Be careful when going down the stairs and when climbing the rocks near the waterfall as they can be slippery and dangerous.
  • Follow any warning signs and instructions from staff or locals.
  • Bring drinking water to stay hydrated. It was easy going down to the waterfalls, but going up is a different story.
  • There are local warungs in the area where you can eat in case you get hungry.
  • Make sure that you do not leave any trash behind.

The information in this guide might be subject to change, so it’s always a good idea to check the Facebook Page of Kanto Lampo Waterfall Bali for any updates or new regulations before you visit.
