An adventure to cascading waterfalls and lush rainforest is a beautiful way to spend the day exploring Lombok. Begin by exploring the waterfalls in the north of Lombok, Sendang Gile and Tiu Kelep Waterfall. Sitting at the foot of Mount Rinjani, they are on the trek to reach the summit. Whether you take a taxi, hire a driver or ride a scooter, there are clear signs from the main road directing you to the waterfalls.
As one of the main attractions in Senaru, plan your journey to catch the sunrise, which is one of the most spectacular ways to encounter the site. On your visit, the same trail will lead you to both Sendang Gile waterfall and Tiu Kelep waterfall. The first waterfall awaiting is Sendang Gile, a two-tiered waterfall that drops into a shallow river. Another fifteen minutes down the river will lead you to Tiu Kelep, which is the most well known waterfall in Lombok. On arrival, you’ll feel the fresh mist from the waterfall lightly spray your skin as canopying trees sway above you.
With one steady stream of water flowing, and many lighter falls rushing underneath, it is quite the spectacle. Due to the vigorous pour of water, swimming under this fall can be quite dangerous, so pay attention. During your stay in Lombok, take some time out to explore the glistening waterfalls, Sendang Gile and Tiu Kelep.
