Sendang Gile and Tiu Kelep Waterfall, Senaru

(4.5/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Good place to see a nice waterfall. First a small waterfall after a 10 minute walk. Then a longer walk through the woods and crossing the small river a couple of times, seeing some monkeys and the water irrigation system. Finally you will get to the big waterfall... Be sure you go there in your swimwear and take watershoes with you.
  • Great place to enjoy the mesmerising view or Indonesia's waterfall. The step through the second waterfall (tiu kelep) is fairly steep and require extra energy (for me anyway). However, it was worth it!! I enjoyed every second that I spent at this waterfall. Definitely a recommended place to visit while you are in Lombok !
  • Very majestic waterfall, especially Tiu Kelep which has a big pool around it that is very nice to swim in (cold, though). People said swimming there would make you younger, and counting by how many times I've been there I should've been back around my teen now.
  • A lot of tourists but a nice waterfall though. Especially the second one. You can reach it on your own and you don't need a guide!
  • It took long walk to go to the site down there, but it's worth to walk through. The waterfall is magical. If you're there you will feel like you wanna stay there as long as you can, amazing place....
