Sendang Gile and Tiu Kelep Waterfall, Senaru

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.

  • If you want to see something many don't it's well worth the walk. Two waterfalls for one effort is worthwhile hopefully soon the will clean up the plastic that appears everywhere but for sheer natural...  more »
  • Both waterfalls visited with a guide. Especially the second is very impressive! Climbing/walking is good to do, there are often paved paths/stairs. You have to be 5 min by an ankle-high stream wading. Then soak in the waterfall! Come reasonably on time and preferably not in the weekend. We had the waterfall, on another couple after, for ourselves!

  • It takes about 30 minutes to get to the first waterfall, and another 30 to get to the second. Some waterproof shoes are needed for crossing a stream. Alternatively bring shoes with good grip because the rocks near the second waterfall are very slippery. The valley sides are steep so most of the time you're in the shade, apart from the start of the walk. It also means that you need to be a hardy soul to swim at either fall because the water is cold (we saw one family changing into wet suits!) You don't need a guide to show you the way but they could be useful to help you or young children cross the stream or prevent you from slipping near the second waterfall.
  • So far Sendang gile and Tiu Kelep is my favourite waterfalls in Indonesia.. I enjoy the hiking as well.. Very beautiful place..
  • 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.
  • Both waterfalls are nice. The water around the waterfalls appears clean. It's worth the trip if staying north of Mataram; however if staying south of Mataram maybe not worth the time. Beware Do NOT hire guide if your driver stops at office before going to waterfall. It is unnecessary and a Scam!! It only cost 10,000rp to enter. If you have bags or some problems walking. You can hire a guide at the official entrance counter for 50,000rp. The second wallfalls requires you to cross water below the knees. Thus you might need help.
  • Sendang gile waterfall is about 10 minutes walk from the entrance. As for tiu kelep, need to walk a bit more to get there. Crossing a bridge & a small creek, navigating through big rock formation.. But once you get here, you will immediately forget those hardship.. until you decide to go back.. At the entrance we are REQUIRED/FORCED to use guide service for entry. The fee is ridiculous, even for domestic tourist..!! Have to do big deal of haggling for a more reasonable price. If you have the time & energy, go up to the coffee plantation. From there you can see the top of tiu kelep.
