Sekumpul Waterfall in a quiet and unspoilt forest is a spectacular waterfall. In order to get there you will need to be reasonably fit and active as the trek to the waterfall takes about an hour over the ground that slopes quite steeply and can be slippery in wet weather.
The Pura Dalem Jagaraga Temple is located nearby–it was founded in 1849 on a famous battle site–with sculptures made in the beginning of the 20th century to reflect the impact of the Netherlands colonizations.
The beautiful Sekumpul Waterfall is just a short drive from Villa Manuk to the East, through the villages of Sawan and Bebetin, making it a wonderful trek. Take a picnic and eat lunch in the quiet gorge of a bird’s singing and the sparkling water of the river as it crosses a stony path.
In the hills here, native hardwoods with tall coffee and clove trees are interspersed and the fragrant vanilla used throughout the world for desserts and cakes is climbing up the trunk of small trees, which provide the cows with foliage.
