Sendang Gile and Tiu Kelep Waterfall, Senaru

4.5
#1 of 62 in Parks in Lombok
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. Our Senaru vacation planner makes visiting Sendang Gile and Tiu Kelep Waterfall and other Senaru attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Falling Falls is a cement ladder, not a difficult one. There are many cars parked on the road, and if you get tired of coming back, you can pay them to return to the restaurant. On the side of the path, there is a diversion road, which leads the water of the two waterfalls to a nearby paddy field, which can be said to be the life of this mountain farmer. After walking for about a minute, the trio came to the first waterfall "tiu kelep", this waterfall is shallow water, not swimming, but can be soaked. The waterfall originally has two layers, because the drop is big, the water power is very strong juice, even if leaves the waterfall more than 20 meters to be able to feel the waterfall Splash. Only a short walk from the river, there is a shadow of the horror of the changing room, the more spread out in the face of the stink, the thick eyebrows are really doubtful whether someone will use. The second waterfall, called "sendang gile", hears the surging water of its male voice. The air is the water of the waterfall, so the nearby stone has become very wet, the line is really very careful, if you fall in this hurt, may really depend on the wizard to save. Since the water from the waterfall comes from the volcanic lake, the water contains abundant mines material, which is good for the skin, while the coarse eyebrow is not afraid to swim here, and still washes the hands with the waterfall. In particular, although this waterfall can swim, but Sharman thousand bites Testament, said not to go under the waterfall, because this waterfall is too powerful, strong juice water will knock people dizzy, previously had a visitor because of too close to the waterfall of life.

  • This is a most enjoyable walk through the forest with a spectacular ending. You must however get here early before the crowds arrive. We met lots of people on the return and it deserves an early start...  more »

  • Totally awesome! The trek to the Tiu Kelep is a must! The first waterfall is easy to get to, and where most will head to. But if you really want to experience a REAL waterfall, take a short hike to the second waterfall, that is about 20 minutes away. The hike is not that challenging, but just make sure you are wearing appropriate gear, like shoes and swim gear. The waters in the second waterfall is quite cold. The sheer sight of it will just make you go WOW!
  • Plastic waterfalls. So many very old plastic bottles and rubbish everywhere. No one feels responsible for cleaning. Everyone just doing "their" business. They told me it's cleaned every day. Hahaha... Come and enjoy the beauty of plastic and rubbish.
  • Wonderful place. Don’t take a guide. 90% of the road is made of concrete and it’s super easy to get there. I consider it a local scam when they offer you a guide.
  • Lovely valley and waterfalls but be prepared for the trek. As you can see in the photo we were not prepared for the knee deep river crossings and slippery rocks that we'd have to scramble over to get to the large waterfall. Still really lovely and a story to tell!!
  • Important Tip: Don't stand right under the waterfall, you might get clapped and totally lose consciousness. The whole place has steps built in for both waterfalls, and at the end of the second waterfall, it's all about crossing rivers, and a lot of stones are really slippery. If you are not experience, better hire a local guide and tip him 20k IDR for the service. By 《黑象》《边旅行边拯救世界》作者 CHAO 发现世界 了解世界 改变世界 微博:Superboy超 公众号:Glimpse魔眼
