Tukad Cepung Waterfall was very hidden place,the thick trees make people fascinated to go there

Many people Comes for purification at Tirta Nawa Ratna

Before being managed as a tourist attraction, Tukad Cepung Waterfall was a very hidden place.
The thick trees make people reluctant to go there.
“This place has long been considered sacred by the community. In the past, people came there only for spiritual purposes such as melukat,
Or purification recalls Kadek Tingkes, a resident of Banjar Penida Kelod.
However, since the past two years, tourists have started to frequently visit Tukad Cepung Waterfall.
There are tens to hundreds of tourists who come in a day.

Kadek Tingkes who also a member of the Tukad Cepung tourism management said this place had been visited by artists from the capital.
"If not one year ago, Kiki Farrell's group had time to visit this place," he said.
Not only domestic, foreign tourists also want to see the beauty of Tukad Cepung.

The beauty of it , even invites several couples to do a pre-wedding photo session. So what is the real attraction of this waterfall?

For travelers who have been to several waterfalls in Bali, they will probably agree that Tukad Cepung has a different charm.

The charm lies in the image of the adventure that you feel before reaching this waterfall. This journey begins with something very common to waterfall explorers.

After leaving the ticket booth, a green view of forest and jungle is right in front of your eyes. While enjoying the moment, one by one the stairs were waiting to be stepped on.

In the middle, you start to see the river flow. This river will be divided into two lanes.
One path flows naturally, which will later fall to form the Tukad Cepung waterfall. While the other flows in an artificial canal that will occasionally face several dam doors.
At this point, the atmosphere begins to look different from most waterfalls. You can also wonder where the promised waterfall is. The road that looks flat doesn't seem to show any signs of a waterfall.

When you start to pass a small wooden bridge, then the atmosphere of the waterfall is felt. You can hear the gurgling water falling from a height. You will also find signs leading to the waterfall, leading to a rather steep descent.
But as soon as you pass these stairs, a beauty awaits you.

Solid rock cliffs stand before your eyes. The cliff forms a passageway like a cave, but at the top there is still a gap that lets light in. Its height seems to build a sense of amazement as well as create an impression of mystery.

Between the solid cliffs, a small river flows. The water flow is small and not so deep. Only around the ankles to the bottom of the calves of adults.
This flow is a continuation of the Tukad Cepung waterfall which you will see at the end of the Padas wall.

Standing in front of Tukad Cepung Waterfall seems to pay for all the fatigue during the trip. Because it is located between two cliffs, the light in this place is limited even during the day.

But this is what probably makes the atmosphere there so cool. The amount of water falling is not how big, but still charming.
“Besides water from the river, this waterfall also has natural springs. Therefore, it is never dry even in the dry season," explained Kadek Tingkes.
This waterfall falls from a height of about 15 meters against a solid wall that is carved flat. Make the shape like a soft water curtain.
Some visitors did not miss the opportunity to take pictures with the background of this waterfall.

Tukad Cepung Waterfall can also be a destination for those of you who are spiritually traveling.

There is a place of worship called Tirta Nawa Ratna which is located a few meters from the waterfall. According to local people's beliefs, this place is considered capable of cleansing itself of all complaints.
“Days that are considered good for melukat usually coincide with holy days. Every rahinan Purnama, Tilem, Kajeng Kliwon, even the Galungan series, quite a few come to melukat," said Kadek Tingkes. He explained that the melukat ritual should start with the offering of a pejati at the Rajapati Temple.

This area has long been considered sacred by the community. Some people who have visited also think that the aura around Tukad Cepung is very suitable as a place for spiritual activities,” he continued.
Apart from being a tourist and spiritual location, Tukad Cepung can also be a destination for those of you who like tracking and camping.
Tracking in this area will take about two hours.
Tukad Cepung Waterfall is located in Banjar Penida Kelod, Penida Village, Tembuku District, Bangli.
