Tips for you
It was great time. We organised our trip with Bali Safest Drivers and as it was the end of the wet season - we went early in the morning from Kuta to avoid possible rain in the afternoon. So 3 hours and we were near the entrance. It costed about 15 kRp for a person. about 10 minutes among the jungle and we saw Sekumpul! It was great. So some steps (for me and me wife it was not a problem) and we were down, near fork - the first way was to the Sekumpul and the second - to Lemukih waterfalls. That day I do not know why we saw only 3 persons during all our walking throuhg the jungles. So we simply left our backpacks and trekking shoes near this fork. It was a little bit challenging to get to the waterfall and stand under them (because it was wet season and there was a lot of water at the way to the waterfalls directly), but we managed and this is unbelievable feelieng when you stand under the waterfall. Also! I recommend you to see not only Sekumpul waterfall (it is the highest), but also Lemukih waterfalls - they are really great!
We decided to do something different this time in Bali rather than the same old thing. So a trip to the waterfalls was arranged. Take into consideration that this is about a 3.5 hr drive from Seminyak... On arrival we are met by the local stewards to the area and asked to pay a fee to enter, about 100kRp. Then you are offered the opportunity to have local guide you down to the waterfalls. If you intend to go swimming this is probably a great idea as someone will then look after your gear. The walk down through the forest and little community takes about 10 - 15 minutes before you get to the stairs leading down to the waterfalls. Did I mention stairs!!!!! OMG. At some point some madman with a love of torture has designed these godforsaken steps.... I am a big chap (125kgs and 195cm tall) and at times i had trouble getting half of my foot onto the step. At some points there are no handrails and you have to take your life into your own hands for some very short lengths. Once we made it to the bottom.... thank god!!!..... you have the option of the waterfalls to the left or the right. To the left no charge... to the right another 150kRp. tis but money.... the waterfalls are very spectacular and you are able to swim at both. Although we didn't because the water was a wee bit cold and I didn't want to look like a girl when I got out of the water. I would suggest some study shoes and be prepared to get them wet and muddy..... Ok, now for the stairs again!!!!>...... OMG did I say stairs, god help me I am sweating just writing this..... Oh the pain!!! The were over 300 steps from top to bottom. At some point the steps are nearly vertical... basically had my hands on steps that were three or four above me and walked up that way. We tried to do the stairs in 100 lots... Yeah right!. First 100 down and I am thinking that I need a Bintang and a good lay down, let alone a 4 hour massage. So we set out for the next 100.... did I say 50. Now to imagine my legs are burning at this stage is an understatement because basically I can't feel anything from the waist down. My lungs are on fire and I am over heating like a rusty old Ford. We spend about 30 minutes trying to get air into our tortured longs and bring our core temp down to just below boiling.... then we set off once again... yes another 50..... Now my brain is on autopilot as I can't talk and only make incoherent sounds... my vision is blurred and I think that at sometime I may have wet myself.... but i didn't care anymore. I am just thinking to myself... how the hell are they going to get me out of here if I have a heart attack or worse.... Another 30 minute break which did absolutely nothing except cause cramping and now started the the irritation of chaffing .... oh yeah, great day out. Ok lets see if we can do this in one push.... HOLY HECK...... thats it I quit!!! My breath is coming out in great gasps like the ravaged breathes of a dying dragon.. the chaffing is now so bad that I thought at one stage I had lost one of my testicles, but i didn't care.... I don't know about cramps anymore if all of a sudden I have spikes driven into the very fibre of my being and they are slowly being tightened. I can't cry anymore because I have no body fluids left. I have thrown caution tot he wind, or maybe thats because my brain has melted... and i have taken off my shirt, hat and shorts and I am now wandering up the mountain wearing nothing but my sneakers and a weird grin..... I did wonder why the locals were looking at me funny and laughing. Finally we make it to the top of the steps.... OH HELL did I say stairs.... 320 bloody steps.... nearly vertical, no handrails and hardly wide enough for my feet. At the to of the steps there is a little kiosk that offers a cup of warm tea.... WARM TEA!!!! are you kidding me.... I nearly drank him dry of Bintang.... OMG they were so cold...... After a little discussion we discovered that we could the locals to come and get us on a couple of scooters... for 20kRp bring em on!! So.... oh it ain't done yet.... My Fiancee gets on the back of the studdly young buck's bike and get on with granddad. All seems to be going well until we start to ride up a fairly steep section and pops hasn't given it enough throttle... and yes the moped decides that it wants to part way with the earth and starts to tip over backwards. I was lucky enough to be able to step off the moped without any issue.... Pops on the other hand.... he was going over with the bike until i grabbed him by the shirt and lifted him off the moped.... eventually we got everything sorted and back to the top. Was it worth the effort. Absolutely. The waterfalls were spectacular with plenty of wildlife and beautiful flowers and birds. 7 waterfalls in total, although they aren't particularly high they are still beautiful.
