Hidden away in Bali’s jungle, The Kanto Lampo Waterfall is located just a short 30 minute drive from Ubud and has become 'insta famous' because of the black rock formation on which many people take pictures! 

The waterfall's unique shape was created after the Kanto Lampo river region was hit by an avalanche, making the intrigue of the amazing Kanto Lampo waterfall even more enticing. We'd highly recommend putting this on the cards when planning some tours in Bali!

The waterfall stands out for many reasons, the first one being it doesn’t involve any strenuous trekking or dangerous obstacles which makes it one of the easiest waterfalls in Bali to get to and therefore highly suitable for families and children! 

Secondly the waterfall is in quite an unusual setting: instead of the usual cascade of water coming down into a pool at the bottom, Kanto Lampo is in the middle of a flowing river (The Kanto Lampo river). Last but not least, the water that flows over the rocky cliff is also used for irrigation of the neighboring farmlands and rice fields. 

You can easily combine a visit to this beautiful waterfall with other famous attractions in Ubud such as the Tegallalang rice terraces and the Tukad Cepung cave waterfall!
