Sendang Gile and Tiu Kelep Waterfall, Senaru

(650+ reviews on the web)
Waterfall Nature / Park
At Sendang Gile and Tiu Kelep Waterfall, white water plunges down bright green cliffs, thick with tropical vegetation. Reach the first waterfall via a short, simple hike through lush forest. You won't need a guide to find it, as the path is easy and straightforward (nor is a guide mandatory, despite what various people hanging around may tell you). The second fall requires more effort to reach, though the spectacular sight makes it worthwhile. Follow the trail onwards from the first waterfall, up a steep hill climb, across a creek, and past several other obstacles. Due to the increased difficulty of this part, many visitors recommend a guide for this fall--and you will find plenty on site offering their service. Wear clothes you don't mind getting wet, and bring as few belongings as you can (the guide will help you carry things). Once you arrive at the second fall, reward yourself with a dip in the invigorating, cold plunge pool. Make Sendang Gile and Tiu Kelep Waterfall a part of your Senaru vacation plans using our Senaru vacation generator.

  • Watch out for the scammers at the entrance. We didn't go unfortunatly after being to it was 400000 each for entry. Then they changed the price to 400000 for both. We road a scooter and left, not trust...  more »

  • Great waterfalls. No need to take a guide. Just follow the footpath. 15 minutes to first waterfall, then walk back up 30 seconds and turn left for the second water fall. Shoes recommended though they'll get wet.
  • Important Tip: Don't stand right under the waterfall, you might get clapped and totally blacked out. The whole place has steps built in for both waterfalls, and at the end of the second waterfall, it's all crossing rivers, and a lot of stones are really slippery. If you are not experience, better hire a local guide and tip him 50k IDR for the service.
  • You will be told its a long and dangerous hike- that you NEED a guide to show you the way, and protect you from danger. However there is a paved path to the first waterfall. It would be impossible to get lost. The first fall is about 10 minutes walk from the main road. The second is a additional 15 minutes. Do NOT expect an untouched natural wonder. The first fall is filled with tourists, some food vendors, and of course, lots of litter. The second fall is nicer, but still very busy. You can swim at the second fall. There are also monkeys on the way. Don't be fooled into paying for a guide.
  • Beautiful waterfall on the foothill of Rinjani Mountain (Senaru Village). The best one is Tiu Kelep. Don't miss Tiu Kelep.
  • This place is so far from mataram. If you stay there dont go here, it will take a half day just for the journey. I made a mistake by going here instead of spending time in kuta beach instead. The waterfall itself is nice, the journey to go there is like an adventure through the jungle (with clear path). Be careful with the monkeys. Decent hiking distance.
