Chasing Waterfalls- Sekumpul

Day 3 of our trip we decided to go see Sekumpul Waterfall. Our driver said that a girl who was traveling alone was interested in going so he suggested we all go as a group. It was a 2 hour drive to the waterfall from Seminyak. The drive went by quickly because we talked Carola. She is from Mexico, lives in Paris and was in Bali visiting her uncle. She was very nice. Upon arriving to Sekumpul they sat us down to go over our day. They then took us by scooter to the point where we would start our tour. We had a guide who was only 12 years old. He told us every day he would go to school then come to do Tours. The amount of walking and exercise he probably gets in a day is crazy! Β It was a beautiful walk to the water falls, we got to walk along a ft wide path across the rice terraces. We stopped at a look out point which they gave us some coconut water. There was a lookout you could climb up to take pictures on. Everything was so green. After we continued our walk and eventually stopped for lunch at a little warung looking over the rice terraces. We all got chicken satay with rice. Food was delicious and the view was amazing. There was a little swing we could take pictures or a selfie on. We continued our journey eventually stopping at a natural waterslide. There was tons of local kids riding down the slide. It went pretty fast and was alot of fun. This water slide eventually turned into a water fall. After the slide, we continued our walk to the waterfall. We had to go down a very steep stair case of 280 steps to get to it. We got to the waterfall and it was absolutely breath taking. There was a double rainbow that was among the waterfall. We climbed a large rock so we could get some amazing pictures. Β After seeing the waterfalls we made our way back to our driver Wayan. Our time at Sekumpul waterfall was over 6 hours. We headed back to Seminyak. We stopped along the way to look at some monkeys at the side of the road. I was taking pictures of one and one lunged and started to chase me. I ran away but then it started chasing Kylie who almost ran into the oncoming traffic. Wayan was laughing. It was actually scary!!!! We got back to the hotel and we went out for dinner. We were absolutely exhausted.
