Yeh Mampeh Waterfall


The “Yeh Mampeh” Waterfall
The village’ main attraction is its impressive “Yeh Mampeh” waterfall. The meaning comes from the Balinese language for “flying water”. Strategically placed signs will lead you towards the main entrance of the waterfall area where a small tourist cabin and its staff will await your arrival. The remaining 1 km distance to the waterfall is done by foot.  A shady path slowly winds up through quiet areas of small plots of fruit plantations where local farmers cultivate small scale agriculture. Higher up, you will notice that the environment becomes more forested with Rambutan trees until reaching a magnificent central plateau with a cascade crashing down into a shallow pool below. Although this honor has been contributed often to the nearby “Git Git” waterfall, Desa Les actually is the proud owner of the highest waterfall of the island. Hidden from the eyes of the common tourist, a series of smaller upper level waterfalls and water pools exist beyond the drop-down line of the visible ground level waterfall.  Lacking easy access to these upper level waterfalls, this natural secret has dodged commercial exposure and has surprised the few lucky people who pass by. When visiting the upper waterfall area make sure to use a tourist guide to reach the top safely. The uniqueness of this waterfall lays also in its moderate water flow, allowing people to enjoy an aqua massage underneath it. People can actually enter into the waterfall and take a fresh bath.
