Sekumpul - The Long Hike: Trekking

Our longest hike to the highest waterfall in North Bali with lots of interesting information about religion, culture and crafts

 

 

Your trek begins in the small village of Menyali. From Lovina to Menyali we will need about 45 minutes. On this tour, we work with local guides of Menyali. They will give you many interesting informations about crafts, arts and the unique local culture.

At natural monuments you can learn facts about the mixture of animism and Hinduism in Bali.

You will see how cult and art objects are made. You will experience an archaic method of the production of cupcakes and share the daily life of Balinese people in manifold variety.

 

 

Near the village there are already first beautiful views and photo opportunities.

leads us to an interesting funerary tempel (Pura Dalem).

Then we will leave the forest. Along narrow paths through the middle of rice paddies we have to follow our way uphill. At a special temple near a small river we pause for a moment. If we are lucky we soon might watch rice farmers at work and talk to them with the help of our guides.

In case you already work up a sweat and your water bottle is already empty, you can fill it up at this particular water source again. The water taken from this source is potable without treatment. This circumstance in Bali doesn't go without saying. For that, your guides honor the spring with a small offering.

Our route takes us through vast rice fields and our destination - the mountains - we never lose sight to seem, especially during the rainy season, almost a bit menacing:

At a village blacksmith who forges blades we have a short rest and admire the hard work of the blacksmith and his wife.

We are going back out into the rice fields, but at last we reach the mountain-forest. Often we follow the irrigation canals of the rice farmers. 

 

Wet feet are guaranteed no later than at the waterfalls of Sekumpul. But already on the way, we have to pass creeks: suitable footwear are good trekking sandals.

So we walk uphill for several hours and enjoy alternately shady tropical forests and the magnificent views from the rice fields to the sea.

 

At the highest point of our hike we find a warung, a small kiosk. We decide on the spot whether we take a coffee at once or turn first to the highlights of the tour: the waterfalls of Sekumpul.

 

For this we first need to go down a stairway of three hundred steps - always remembering that we will have to climb up these stairs later in the opposite direction.

 

The stairs are steep, the stages have different heights and can be slippery in some places: be careful!!

At the foot of the stairs we have to pass a new challenge:

We have to wade across the river of the falls several times. Here the water sometimes reaches above our knees.

 

The reward for all our efforts awaits us shortly:

For the most daring ones we still offer an excursion to further falls.

 

To get to them, however, we have to overcome a range of several hundred meters in a cree. This is not entirely harmless. However, it is worth the detour.

 

One of the three falls, which we achieve on this trip atomizes the water so finely, that while having a shower there you could think to enjoy a warm spring rain.

 

After the exhausting trip a real treat!

If we have on the way back once climbed the stairs again, there remains an about 20 minutes lasting walk, mostly along the contour line to get to the place where our vehicles are waiting for us to bring us back home.
