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.

  • The hike in this natural paradise was really nice and the waterfalls (especially the second) were really impressive. However, small children and older persons should be somewhat careful the hike leads partly through streams with not inconsiderable flow. Security lines are not present, the tour guide provides the only stop. A Swede who made the trek with us, sucks down (even on his expensive camera). So you should be okay to walk and wear sturdy footwear

  • The day of arrival until the sun goes down, we try to visit the waterfall in this sector. The waterfall is really close to our home, walk just approximately 1 hour to the second waterfall. Water and the water is really cool.

  • 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
