There is no public transport to get there.

*) For backpacker i recommend you to rent a scooter to reach this waterfall and use google maps as your navigator.

**) I recommend you to turn right on Jl Raya Bedugul – Singaraja or Pagayaman, Sukasada exactly. It’s a shortcut to the waterfall. It will one hour faster than you follow Google maps recommendation. The road is in good condition, but smaller and steep sometime. No gas station in this road. Better you full your scooter tank.

***) Make sure your scooter is powerful and good condition because the road so steep.
