Gitgit is a Bali postcard pin-up, and one of its most-visited landmarks. Ensconced in lush tropical foliage, Gitgit is in the Sukasada sub district, about 10 Kilometres from Singaraja Town. The falls themselves rise up 300 metres above sea level, and have a cascade of 45 metres. Remember to take swimwear and a camera, otherwise you’ll miss a great opportunity.
Walk from the car park through the paddy fields and past the heavily-scented clove plantations. The path towards the falls is a reasonably easy walk (around 800 metres), and there are usually plenty of people to follow. Lining the route is a number of vendors selling drinks and snacks. A staircase leads you down to Gitgit waterfall, although you'll hear it well before you see it.
Take the requisite photos of Gitgit before cooling off in its fresh waters. Be aware that there is nowhere to lock away your valuables, so have someone you can trust look after them while you enjoy yourself in the water. Also be careful when walking on the rocks as they can be slippery. Canyoning is another activity that is on offer at Gitgit; enquire at your accommodation and book ahead if you wish to do this.
Wild monkeys like to sup from the waters of Gitgit; they are harmless enough, but are prone to stealing possessions such as sunglasses, so be on your guard!
If you've time to spare, consider hiking to the area's other two major waterfalls, Story Gitgit and Campuhan. When you've tired yourself out, re-energise at the restaurant perched just uphill from Gitgit. Otherwise, stock up at one of the local vendors.
The falls are in the village of Gitgit, which lies 10 kilometres from Singaraja Town. The trail leading to the falls is steep at points, so you’ll need more on your feet than just flip-flops. Gitgit Waterfall is open from morning until early evening. A small entrance fee is charged.
