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.

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!
