The Sekumpul waterfall is said to be the most gorgeous and beautiful waterfall in Bali. The waterfall is located near enough to the Lemukih waterfall which is only 2 km away. But to see the Sekumpul waterfall will need a little effort and struggle.

The seven waterfalls each has its own beauty, form, and height that look extraordinary and makes these waterfalls as the most gorgeous and beautiful waterfall in Bali island. The sekumpul itself means “a group”.
