Oenesu Waterfall FAQs

Will I have time?

A short 45 minute car ride from most hotels in Kupang will get you there... Normally we spend at least one hour and I can understand it when some people spend many hours there just swimming and relaxing... Total time give yourselves around 3-4 hours minimal...

Located in a westerly direction 17km from Kupang following main roads through some hilly villages with some final road sections quite bad but still passable for normal cars even during the wet/monsoon season... Known as Air Terjun Oenesu...

Anything to remember?

Climbing and jumping can always be hazardous so proceed with caution... If you're unsure then DO NOT JUMP!!! People (young local boys mainly) have misjudged the landing and it has been fatal... I have jumped about a dozen times before with no problems...

How do I get there?

It may be possible to catch a village bound bemo or bus towards the general direction but none will pass directly in front of the entrance... Your best chance to get there is by either local taxi or by yourself with rental motorbikes...

How much will it cost?

The rental taxi will be the most expensive of the transport options at IDR250k - 300k for the round trip including waiting while you enjoy the falls... There is a parking fee of IDR10k - 20k/car and entrance fee IDR5k - 10k/person and you can pay less if you're in a group...

What can I do there?

Some light trekking around the falls is possible and try to visit the tops and bottoms of each level to fully enjoy the experience... Swimming or laying in the dozens of pool sections is great... It's quite invigorating and do some climbing and jumping in the safe areas only...

Best season and best time of day

Oenesu Waterfall can be visited all year and is never closed to the public...

Expect more water flowing over the falls during the monsoon season which unofficially is from mid-December until mid-March...

The falls are in the middle of the jungle so if you have mosquito repellent, use it and bring it with you...

So more water flowing during the rainy season but this also means that the water (although still clean) will be a milky brown color due to the natural runoff into the stream...

Into the Dry season means less water flow but clearer water flow and clearer ponds and pools...

The entrance gate opens early in the morning until after dark so no restrictions there...

If you're wanting to go when there is almost no-one there you should avoid Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays as it can be quite busy on those days...
