Tegenungan itself comes from the name of the road that tourists often use to get to the waterfall. If you want to go to this place, you can take the Tegenungan route or the Blangsinga route.
Tegenungan Waterfall is about 15 meters high with quite a lot of water discharge during the rainy season, between December and February. Around the waterfall, there is a pool that is clean and can be used for bathing, swimming, or bathing.

Don’t worry, if you get confused, the staff will show you where to park.After that, you’ll pass some souvenir shops and restaurants before arriving at a large sign that says “WELCOME TO TEGENUNGAN WATERFALL,” and from there it’s about a 5-minute walk down about 100 stairs.
There’s a great viewpoint to the left as soon as you pass the entrance sign, though it’s usually quite crowded! After a few steps, you will be greeted by a viewpoint from which you can see the waterfall from a distance.

Tegenungan Waterfall has been a destination for attractions created by other travelers. Some visitors to this waterfall often bravely jump from the top of the waterfall. The action is carried out by the daring fellow, who succeeds in astounded other visitors. However, we do not recommend it.
From that height, the water is insufficiently deep, and you will almost certainly injure yourself.
