Do not go where the path may lead, instead go where there is no path and leave a trail’
A recent last-minute trip to Bali took me to all of the well-known tourist spots and whilst beautiful, I craved quiet. The buzz of busy Ubud in the high season had me googling for a secluded spot and that's how I found Munduk.
Often overlooked by tourists, Munduk is a small village nestled in the mountains of northern Bali. It takes around 90 minutes to get there. That is if you can resist the temptation to stop at one of the many beautiful viewpoints on the way! Hiring a driver is probably the easiest and safest way to get there and in Bali, it is very affordable. Most Airbnb hosts or hotel staff can recommend a driver for you and get this arranged. Then all you need to do is sit back and enjoy the scenery.
The area is home to three amazing waterfalls which are a lot quieter than their more central counterparts near Ubud. There are rice terraces, coffee plantations, beautiful views of the twin lakes and even a 500-year-old Banyan tree which was really interesting to see!
This photo was taken at Munduk waterfall which included a very short walk of around 10 minutes down the valley and a small cost of 20000 IDR per person (around 1.40usd). There were no more than 15 other people there at the same time as us and this was mid-afternoon.
If you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the well-trodden paths in Bali, then head to Munduk? You will not be disappointed!
Location: Munduk Waterfall, North Bali

I’ve never wanted to swim so badly in my life. It’s a shame it was so cold because there were so many great jump off points!

An easy walk from Füssen city center, Lechfall is a popular tourist destination despite being a manmade attraction. Coupled with the easy nearby hiking trails, visitors come to marvel at the color. The Lech river gets its unique, milky turquoise color thanks to high mineral content, low temperatures, and nearly no plankton—but act fast if you want to see it, a single storm can turn the vibrant color to muddy brown in a matter of minutes.

I'm falling in love with these less traveled parts of #Mexico . 😍 Who has visited the region of Tamasopo on their travels?
It's full of #waterfalls , #swimmingholes , and #jungle . It's another place that is super popular with locals, but in tourist high season (winter), they avoid the water (which is still super warm). HOW TO GET HERE:
I highly recommend hiring a car for this region. To visit all the waterholes and waterfalls (and there are a lot), you will have more fun and spend less money overall by renting a car!
Most people stay in #CiudadValles , a beautiful mountain town. You can catch buses to get here and I have been told you can rent cars in the town!
Let me know if you have any questions!
More waterfalls and #waterholes to come!
Moray Fall is located on the Moray estate on on the shadows of Samanala Range. The waterfall is fed by a stream originating from the Samanala Mountain Range and ends up at the Muskeliya Reservoir at the bottom of the fall. This fall cascades in 3 segments before finally hitting the bottom.
