Today, started out at 10am. Planned on seeing 5 waterfalls, a temple on the sea and a visit to Canggu Village which is party town with nightclubs, bars, restaurants on the beach, etc. First stop, Pengempu Waterfall, about 40 minutes away. On the way, I had Komang stop at a little tiny shop to see if they had lined paper and a pen. Their lined paper is different. Big sheets folded in half and longer then our regular 8 1/2 x 11 paper. I got roughly 50 sheets after I cut them in half and a pen. Came to 67 cents. Incredible!
Arrived at the trail to the Pengempu Waterfall. Quite a few cement stairs down to the falls. It was a very high waterfall set back into a cove of rock walls, It was a thin waterfall but flowing pretty good. Had a pretty good tidal pool beneath it that was shallow so I could get close to the water for pictures. Next stop, Leke Leke Falls. Arrived at the road that leads to the falls. Cars not allowed because the road goes through a small village and I guess they don’t want the traffic. If you were on a scooter, you would be okay. It would be about an hours walk down the road. They had a booth setup with several guys that would take you on motorbikes. 15,000 rupiah for the ride to trail entrance and back. Basically one US dollar. It was actually a cool part of the whole visit to the falls. They dropped us off at the trailhead and it was 50,000 rupiah to enter. Trail was dirt steps most of the way and a suspended walking bridge. This falls was pretty high also. Water flowing pretty good, with a large tidal pool below it. I was able to get pretty close to the water for pictures. Next, we headed to Nung Nung waterfall. Walked down a paved path for a little and then cement steps the rest of the way. Another large falls with heavy flow. Again, I was able to get pretty close to the water for some great shots. So there were so many steps, I decided to count them on the way out. 497 steps. Oh my. I definitely felt it.
It was starting to get late in the day, so I decided to skip going to the other two waterfalls, and Komang said that we wouldn’t make it to the temple on the sea before sunset, so we just headed to Canggu Village for dinner.We parked and walked along the beach road and found a nice restaurant to eat at.Drove around through town after, seeing all the nightclubs.Stopped at a really big monument to the bombing that happened at a nightclub there.The 2002 Bali bombings occurred on 12 October 2002 in the tourist district of Kuta on the Indonesian island of Bali. The attack killed 202 people. A further 209 people were injured.
