Had a trip which included a local guide. Be assured they don't get paid very much for their part in your trip so a tip would be nice. Really helpful young man, Anal, was really good for us. He was great guy, look him up.

This is one of the most handsome waterfalls in Lombok with big water volume and fresh clear water. The trails lead to the waterfall are well paved surrounded by tropical dense forest where live dozens of grey long tailed monkeys. Around the waterfall there are lots of food stalls where you can get coffee or tea or cold drinks while... More

This the nicest waterfall in Lombok. After doing trekking program, my guide took me to explore this waterfall. Actually there are 2 waterfalls can be seen in this place, first is Sindanggila and another one is Tiu kelep. We didn't go to the first as what our guide recommended to visit the second one. The trek is not too hard,... More

We arrived in Senaru at Lenk and got a "guide" at their restaurant at IDR100. Not much of a need for a guide since the path is mostly paved and nowhere else to go .... Locals and Indonesians don't need a guide, just hope that the young guides get their fare share of the deal. Both waterfalls ( the2nd is... More

About 2 hours drive from Lomboks harbor to get here unless you stop on the way. On the spot we where introduced to our awesome guide "Mowgli" and led... More

The best waterfall, good for massage before we do hike the day after. Pure water that you can drink it directly without boiled, very fresh and can make you one year younger, surprised.. Thanks

We drove there from Sengiggi which took some time as nothing is sign posted. The falls are actually at the Rinjani base camp at Senaru, you cant go without a guide and we paid 200k for four of us. This turned out not bad as it is a hike to the two falls which are impressive to say the least!

North on the island you will find this waterfalls after walking in the forest for a 45 minutes. The place is really nice but to much garbage is thrown all over, and that drags the total impression "down".. It takes a long walk to get there, and there are a lot of steps so if you have any problems walking,... More

Sendang Gile is the first of the two waterfall at Senaru area. you can get here faster only about 5-10 minutes from the entrance. There were some stalls that sell food and souvenirs as well.
