This is a must see destination. Go for the day so you can thoroughly enjoy the park. Eat lunch at the restaurant near the entrance. Get a massage under the pounding water of Sindang Gila and then hike to the other falls where you can swim. I recommend sturdy water shoes because you have to wade across river to get... More

There are total 3 waterfalls in the area. However, we only had time for 2 of them as the third waterfall will take almost a day to reach. The 1st waterfall was a quick walk down some stairs... this is like a mini waterfall but it was jammed packed with people - it was a holiday when we were there.... More

A nice little walk with a friendly guide. Excellent food at the local restaurant after swimming in the clear waters beneath the waterfall. Much less crowded than Bali. I prefer Lombok any time.

Many reviews talk about a short walk and not expending energy. I am not sure why they spent hours to get there and then not visit properly.The first waterfall is a simple level walk them down some steps. Good fun watching people getting wet, very pretty. Where the challenge and fun is, is the walk to the second waterfall. You... More

Beautiful scenery with black monkeys in the palms on they way which was great to see wild and free. We didn't start from the car park, but on a dirt track starting behind the ticket office where you can get a guide. ( strongly recommend for second falls). Yes at times a narrow track and a little narrow so take... More

The waterfalls are a great visit and walk however when we went they were very, very busy with tourists. Too much so for us.

We did not need to maximize our energy to find this waterfall. It took only about 15 minutes to get there. We just went down a few stairs. The water was cool. We could get closed to the waterfall. Moreover, the ticket is only IDR 2.500, very cheap!
