Where Is Tibumana Waterfall Located?

Tibumana waterfall is located in central Bali in the town called Ubud.

Ubud to Timbumana waterfall takes around 25 minutes and unlike other Bali destinations like Nusa Penida, it is a fairly easy motor bike ride making it the perfect half day trip.

We visited Tibumana waterfall after visiting one of the other popular waterfalls near Ubud named Tukad Cepung.

Tukad Cepung waterfall is located further away from Ubud about another half hour past  Tibumana waterfall.

Therefore, we recommend visiting Tibumana once you are all finished at Tukad Cepung waterfall.

On the way to Tibumana, there will be the most picturesque palm tree-fringed road just begging for you to take a picture… or two.

However once you finally finish with your photoshoot of the scenic palm tree covered road continue down the path where you will find the parking lot.

From the parking lot there is a brief and easy 10-minute scenic walk along the trail before you arrive the charming cascading falls of Tibumana.

Therefore, making Tibumana one of the easiest Bali waterfalls to reach.

There is a plethora of beautiful Bali waterfalls, although getting to most involves a decent level of fitness.

However, thankfully this is not the case with Tibumana.

When To Visit Tibumana Waterfall?

Tibumana waterfall is regularly open from 7am to 5pm.

 Although open for most of the day we recommend visiting Tibumana waterall sometime early in the morning to help avoid any possible influx of tourists.

While this is one of the least touristy waterfalls in Bali, it’s probably best to get here before 11am since that is what time most local tours begin arriving.

How To Get To Tibumana Waterfall?

The two options of traveling from Ubud to Tibumana waterfall are either via scooter or a private driver.


The scooters are the budget friendly and adventurous option of traveling to Tibumana waterfall.

Scooters are widely available for rent throughout Ubud for around 50k IDR/day (Indonesian Rupiah) which is roughly $3.50 USD.

Although you can rent scooters the same day you plan to visit Tibumana waterfall, we highly advise you grab them ahead of time to avoid the possibility of them selling out.

Pro Tip

Often times if you are renting the scooters for at least a total of 3 days, you should be able to haggle the price down a bit lower.

Driving the scooter is much easier when there are two people on the bike so one person can drive while the other navigates.

Just be sure to download the google offline maps for the entire Ubud area while you have WiFI at your accommodation.  This will allow you to use GPS anywhere in Ubud and avoid getting lost.

Private Drivers

If scooters aren’t exactly your cup of tea then you could always arrange a private driver to transport you to Tibumana waterfall.

Although not the cheapest option, private drivers offer a safe and reliable way of getting around to all the best things to do in Ubud.

Dependent upon the season private drivers can be arranged for around 300k-500k IDR/day.

Additionally, once hired for the day, the drivers will take you anywhere you want to go in Ubud and some will even act as your personal tour guided during your adventures.

Just be sure to let them know ahead of time all the stops you plan to make along the way so they can plan the best route.

Pro Tip

Although tipping is not required in Bali, you should always be sure tip your drivers.

Remember what cost you very little could make the world of difference for them!
