We have heard mixed experiences from the few tourists who have visited Tukad Cepung. Since the waterfall remains a relative secret, there is no official entry. However, on the recent expeditions, travelers were asked to pay Rp. 10,000 ($ 0.75) to enter the area.

However, be very careful, it is important to know the river's water level before heading to the falls. Rapid flooding can occur when the water table begins to rise in the rain. Check this before going down the stairs!
