Best Waterfall Tour Lombok
Sendang Gile and Tiu Kelep Waterfalls
Tucked away in the village of Senaru in the island’s northern Lombok Utara regency are two of Lombok’s finest and most popular cascades, Sendang Gile and Tiu Kelep, located on the foot of the majestic Mount Rinjani. The village is located about a 2 ½ hour drive from Mataram, the capital of West Nusa Tenggara province.
According to local people, the name Tiu Kelep is taken from the Sasak language. “Tiu” meaning pool, and “Kelep” means flying. Meanwhile, Sendang Gile’s name is taken from a legend which tells the story of a prince who was chased by a crazy lion. He ran into the woods and hid behind a waterfall, hence the name Sendang Gile.
It only takes 15 minutes on foot from the entrance to view the marvelous Sendang Gile waterfall, which is a continuation of the Tiu Kelep waterfall. The clear path to the waterfall passes through a lush protected rain forest filled with towering tropical trees. Once you get there, you can enjoy the sight of the water crushing the rocks or swim in its cool crisp pool.
If you crave a more adventurous trek in the woods that will lead to a more satisfying endgame, then venture further to Tiu Kelep waterfall. The journey to the second waterfall in the area takes around 45 minutes trekking through a lush forest. The bridge used to cross the river could also seem quite intimidating for those who are scared of heights.
But the trip would be totally worth it as you come upon the majestic rush of water rushing around 45 meters down the cliff before crashing against the rocks on the bottom.
2 Benang Stokel and Benang Kelambu Waterfalls
This is another cascade pair you must see when you visit Lombok. Situated in Central Lombok regency, just a one and a half hour’s drive from Senggigi beach, Benang Stokel and Benang Kelambu are waterfalls located only around one kilometer apart from each other. The unique must-see quality of these falls is that instead of being greeted by a sight of water pouring from a cliff passing through jagged rocks, you will see fascinating views of water flowing down among lush plants.
The road is paved so this would be a fairly comfortable trek though still exhausting. You can also find some stalls on the sides of the road where you can buy small towels, drinks, snacks or even kaput rice.
The name Benang Setokel means a bundle of thread. This waterfall consists of two levels and each isas high as 20 meters. The water comes from a river upstream on Mount Rinjani. Here, you can play and frolic in the pond that unites the downpour.
Afterwards, journey to the stunning Benang Kelambu waterfall that consists of around two to three levels. The word “Kelambu” means curtain, named after the plants that frame the waterfall just like a window and curtain. Since the water flows directly from a water spring on Mount Rinjani, the water is clean and said to be safe to drink.
3 Mayang Putek Waterfall
Although Lombok has tens of amazing waterfalls, the Mayang Putek waterfall is the most unique one of them all. Why? Because its waters contain sulfur that locals believe to have healing properties because the water comes directly from Mount Rinjani. The 60 meter high waterfall is located in Bilok Petung village in the Sembalun district of Lombok Timur regency.
Like many names of Indonesia’s waterfalls, the name Mayung Putek is tied to a local legend. Long ago at this location, a white stag was often seen bathing or drinking, hence the name Mayung Putek, which literally translates to meaning “White Stag”.
The journey to the waterfall, however, is a trek of around 30 minutes of going down steps, passing through a hill and then across a river. Although the journey heading towards the waterfall seems simpler, the journey back is a bit more difficult. However, it would be totally worth it to feel the benefits of a nice sulfur bath that could supposedly heal your aches and pains and various other illnesses. Not to mention the unique sight of the “white stag”.
4 Jukut / Jeruk Manis (Sweet Orange) Waterfall
Here is another one of Lombok’s waterfalls believed to have special magical properties. Locals believe the cascade located on the foot of Mount Rinjani to the south of the Mount Rinjani National Park can heal various types of diseases and nourish the hair. Yes, locals believe that washing your hair in its waters will cure you from baldness or help you maintain your full lustrous locks.
A haven for nature lovers, the waterfall stands some 30 meters tall and flows down to a narrow river and rocky place. After buying a ticket to enter the waterfall at the entrance gate, you will need to walk around 15 minutes for some 1.5 kilometers in order to get to the location.
On the way to the waterfall, you will pass a path made from flat stones and about 180 stairs. Along the way you will come across many types of interesting plants and an animal or two, like a monkey or a deer.
If you feel tired of walking, you can take a rest at one of the three berugak / gazebos sprawled along the path. However, it’s best if you push through your exhaustion a little longer and rest at the gazebo located nearest to the waterfall. Here, you will be able to see a magnificent view of the protected forest spread across in front of you like a huge green golf course.
