We visited when it was torrential rain so not blue water for swimming in. However, it was a great adventure and the waterfall in full spate was something else! Our guide was lovely too. There are a lot of steps to encounter if you are challenged with fitness or mobility.

We rented a bike and headed out for a day trip, the ride was great and the water fall good for a few hours fun including rock jumping, swimming and relaxing. The road is good and the walk in takes 20 minutes, not for the faint hearted.

We were enticed by prospect of waterfalls and swimming in clear water, as break on journey across Flores.

It was disappointing. It was raining the day we went so water was brown (possibly this would be better when dry). Also the set up quite run down - all buildings falling apart, path poorly maintained. Expensive - IDR400k for the family and can’t see the need for the mandatory guide.

We arrived to Warsove village by a motorbike. When we reached the village near the waterfall, we were asked to pay an entrance fee at the ticketing office (small building on the right hand side). We paid 210.000 IDR (for two foreigners) . The amount was high and suspicous to us. According to the ticketing office employee the price includes a local guide, who you have to follow to get to Cunca Wulang Waterfall. Path to the waterfall is so easy that you don’t need any guide. After 1 min of walk our guide told us that he has to go back because he forgot to take a key from his motorbike. He came back and walked with us to the waterfall. He was very nice all the time, offering to to take photos of us. After visiting the waterfall, when we came back to the motorbike I noticed we had a flat tire. Our guide told us that he can take our motorbike to a mechanic and be back within 1 hour (we couldn't take his motorbike and go with him). After 15-20 min he was back and told us: BIG DAMAGE! and showed a tube with 20 cm hole! We thought it was impossible, because when we left our motorbike everything was ok. His price for the new tube was 350.000 IDR!!! It was a shock for us and we started to argue that it is too much. He explained that it is because the tube is from Ruteng city etc. We wanted to go with him to the mechanic to discuss the price in person but suddenly it turned out that our guide's scooter did not want to start. All we had to do is to pay him 350.000 IDR so we paid and we drove away. After 10 min ride we stopped and asked local people what is the price for replacing a tube and they told us about 50.000 IDR and that we got cheated. We decided to go back to the village and find our guide (we had his photo) and confirm the price for replacing a tube (not showing them how much we paid). The people said 60.000 IDR. One guy drove with us to our guide's home. He was very suprised that we showed up. We started a discussion that he had lied to us with the price. After 15 min of arguing he said the price in the village is 100.000 IDR. After another 10 min when we were fed up with this situation we told him that we want our 250.000 IDR back. He said: not 250.000 IDR but 200.000 IDR because 50.000 IDR is for his service!!! Another 10 min discussion… it was getting dark so we took our 200.000 IDR and went away as fast as we could...being so much dissapointed. We told the story at our rental place. The owner took the broken tube and said: IT’S NOT MINE, YOU HAVE BEEN CHEATED! That means, that our “guide” made sabotage on our motorbike and stole our money. Below I attach a photo of this man as a warning to use services of this person.

Pleasant place to spend our last half day before flying out of Labuan Bajo, but overall a little underwhelming. The water, a lovely blue-green in most of the photos we had seen, was yellowish-brown, which our guide attributed to runoff from a light rain the day before. While deep enough in one spot to jump in, it was also very shallow for large stretches, and if there were spots for deeper dives, our guide never showed them to us.

Rented a motorbike in Labuan Bajo for Rp 75K and bought Rp 25K in gas along the way, which was much cheaper than the fees we read people had paid to hire a car and driver (~Rp 600,000). The way to the waterfall is quite straightforward, and took about 1.5 hours each way. The last 4km after you turn off the main road is in very poor repair and would be unsafe after rain. At the ticket office, we paid Rp 210K for two people, which included a guide. Our guide, a young guy named John, led us, on his motorbike, another 500m to the trail head. He was polite and spoke some English, but raced ahead of us on both the drive to the trail head, and then on the 500m trail to the waterfall too. Where he was helpful was in showing us where the water was deep enough to jump in and in taking a few photos of us. It would have been great if he could have told us a little more about the area's flora, fauna, geology, local customs, history, or anything else like that, but I don't think he had been given any training.

We were really looking forward to swimming in the Waterfall but when we arrived there, there was construction going on to dig out the excess sand at the bottom of the Waterfall. It was really loud and noisy. They hadn't told us about this at the entrance which I felt is quite unfair. We essentially hiked there for about half hour then hiked back as there wasn't anything to do at the Waterfall and it was too loud for comfort. The entrance fee was 210k rupiah for two of us which included the guide who essentially didn't do much. He walked way too fast leaving us trailing behind and he didn't even realise when I fell. To be honest the Waterfall wasn't that great that it's worth 210k entrance fee. What was even more annoying was at the end of the trip, they kindly offered us coconuts but later tried to rip us off by quoting a very high price for it. I suggest if you are going there around the October 2019 period, check with them first if the construction is still going on. Don't bother wasting your time and money if it is.

We went there on 17 October 2019. Although it’s not very far from Labuan Bajo it takes about 1 and 1/2 hour to get there by car. Last 5 kms are bumpy as the road is in a very bad condition. Entrance fee is 110.000 idr per person (rebate for groups) which is way more than any other waterfall I have visited in Indonesia. It appears it’s mandatory to have a guide, who will basically just walk with you down a clearly marked although steep path. No fixed prices for guides, we paid ours 60.000. It takes about 10-15 min to walk down to the stream, you have to cross a 50 m suspension bridge to get to the waterfall. There’s a small canyon-like entrance to where the water comes down and you can swim and jump into the water. It’s still dry season so there wasn’t a lot of water, but it was sufficient for some simple swimming. Very few people were there. We were a bit unlucky with the timing as a water pump was operating full steam to remove sand from one area of the stream to another. The whole experience was OK, nothing more. There are certainly many other waterfalls across the country that are more interesting. Although the entrance fee may not seem exorbitant to many foreigners I’m a bit puzzled as to why this was so high (relatively speaking).

Oh this was a fab day out. After walking through the forest and then over a very wobbly bridge you arrive at the waterfall. It is beautiful and well worth a swim. You see the best views of the waterfall from the water. There are shallow areas as well as some deep ones so good for any level of swimmer. Use the loo before you arirve at the waterfall as the loo's here are filthy and unusable.

If I knew road was this steep and half paved bumpy ,I wouldn't go.
Not recommend to older adult.
Not sure why you need a guide since there is no way to get lost ,but he helped me carrying a small bag .
Not sure if you can go on raining day.road will be disaster.
