We stayed in Kuta and initially plan to go to the more famous waterfall that is 3 hours away but we glad we didn’t as sitting on a scooter for 3 hours one way is no joke. Hence, we go to the nearest waterfall. We ride our scooters for about 2 hours and visited 4 waterfalls. Remember to wear a hiking shoes as it was a short slippery slopes in the first waterfall. We truly enjoyed it. Paid IDR 80K per person for an entrance to all waterfalls included a guide. Amazing! But is quieter in the first two waterfalls and you can dip your self there! You can ride your scooter in to!

Firstly let me say all the fuss in earlier reviews about entrance fees were unreasonable. These waterfalls are a community based project providing much needed livelihood to the very friendly locals. The entrance fee is set at rp70k per person for 2 waterfalls and rp90k for 4 falls and includes a guide. Tickets can be purchased at the office in the entrance. For foreigners I recommend just pay the fee and help out. Its a price of a beer back where you're from so why fuss. We had the most friendliest and helpful guide with us who helped us on the track and took great photos for us. Benang Stokel is a 10 minute easy walk from the entrance and has 2 falls. No swimming here as its just a fall. The furthest fall is Kelambu and that's a bit of a hike on clear paths with steps up and down. At the end is a 175 steep steps to reach the falls but boy is it worth it. Simply stunning through lovely green canopy. There are pools to swim in but not sure about the hygiene so we gave it a miss but the view more than made up for it. The idea of tracking back didn't appeal so we took a bike ride back that is available at the top for rp20k one way. You can buy a return bike trip to Kelambu if you want to save time and not work a sweat for rp35k at the ticket office. Advisable if not reasonably fit or with knee issues. All in a very worthwhile and amazing experience.

Breathtaking waterfalls and quite the cool trek through the jungle! We hired a cab from our resort (Qunci Villas) to take us there and back for 550K IDR and it was well worth it! The entrance fee was 100K per person ($10 CAD) which included a guide who took us to 4 different falls (the 2 main ones, and 2 secret falls) within the park. Our guide Addy was amazing and quite the talented photographer! He carried our backpack and snapped countless photos of us posing in front of and right in the falls themselves! The whole trek took us 90 minutes and was a total of almost 4km. Definitely we’ll worth it and the most beautiful thing we’ve seen in Lombok to date!! Other reviews indicated the guide wasn’t required or necessary but we really found it to be worthwhile as some of the terrain was quite treacherous! We’re two young able bodied travellers and still got a pretty good workout seeing all the sights! Thanks Addy for being an amazing guide!

Benang Klambu waterfall for me was a very worth visit destination, even it was very far from the downtown / central of Mataram. It took 1,5 hours to go there, but the quality of the view was 5 stars. It was trully like world class destination. Advice: bring your change clothes there, because you definetely had to shower down from waterfall

When we arrived at the entrance we went to the small concrete building to pay the fee, they had a price sheet and happily gave us a receipt for the payment. We paid 150,000Rup for 2 people (we were only going to the first 2 falls) with out the guide. We should have paid the extra 30,000Rup and had guides with bikes take us. We were told just head up the path and keep going left and you will see them and at each fall the locals will direct you to the next fall. Well we kept on the path and going to the left until we eventually found the 2nd waterfall Benang Kelambu after a 45 min walk (somehow we completely missed the first waterfall Benang Stokal). It was beautiful and very clean. They have made 2 deep pools for swimming and the water still flows over each side and then continues down the hillside. The water was cold and crystal clear. There where local kids having a great time in the pools. You can stand under the falls in a couple of places and get wet to. Unfortunately we had to get back to our driver otherwise we would have stayed longer. Once we got back to the top of the stairs we paid 50,000Rup to have 2 locals take us back on their bikes, well worth it as it only took 5 minutes to get back to the entrance.
If we ever do this again I will happily pay for the guide & bikes so that I get to appreciate the waterfalls properly instead of just walking all day.

After 1+ hour of bumpy ride from Bangsal harbour, we arrived at this waterfall. It requires minimal trekking (5 mins to the first waterfall, another 20 mins to the second one), basic shoes (even slippers) to view these waterfalls of different style. The second waterfall is the most unique comparing to other falls, as it is a tiered fall that indeed looks like a net. This is NOT for adventurous people though.

However, please beware of hidden cost. We engaged a tour guide to pick us up at the bangsal harbour at pre-agreed price of 550,000 for the waterfall tour. The guide only started talking about entrance fee of 150,000 per person and local guide fee of 50,000 per person at half way. It appeared that those 550,000 were essentially transportation cost, i.e. 4-wheel drive taxi. We were really caught by surprise by these hidden cost and ridiculously expensive fees.

After arriving at the entrance, there is no gate nor guard house collecting the entrance fees. We followed two local guide from the village to enter the waterfall. We were told these guides are necessary because they will lead us through the jungles. The 'jungle' turned out to be paved road, where school kids play around. The latter half was unpaved, but I am sure you do not need a guide to show you how to walk, as it is just one straight road leading to the waterfall.

By any chance, please avoid our guide Owen D'gilis and the Tour operator Dharma Lestari.

The place is great, first waterfall (Stokal) is just 5 min away from entrance. Kelambu is 30 min walk or 5 mins with the motorbike, just take the trail uphill and turn left every time it splits.

There is a big scam at the entrance where you will be requested to pay 150k IDR entrance fee and hire a "mandatory"guide for another 50k IDR. Indonesians pay 5k IDR and really no guide is requested so bargain, if they don't want just go and bargain again !

I paid 15k +5k IDR for the motorbike parking.

We travelled a long distance to see these waterfalls. At the parking area, locals wanted ys to pay 190k each for a guide. When we told them we dont want a guide, they said the entrancee fee is 80k per person. We decided not to pay and leave immediately. Not because we didnt have the money but because we dont finance criminal people. We asked the police later and they told us these guys do not belong to the park but if we dont want problems is better to follow their rules. What a shame. Better to visit the waterfalls that do Appear in the guides.

The national park has five waterfalls its up to you how's my you choose to see, you pay only for what you want to see. We just visited the Benang Setokel due to time which is the double waterfall and only a short hike (10 mins if reasonably fit), mostly flat but some steep uneven stairs to get down to the waterfall and obviously back up to the path after visiting them. Waterfalls are pretty and you can both dip your feet or actually walk through/under the waterfall although it was freezing. We had a guide not sure if maps are available instead of guide, if so you can probably do it without although the guides aren't expensive.

They ask 70k rp per person for 7 minutes of walking with a local guide. when we told them we do not want local guide and asked how much for the entrance only they became very aggressive and told us we cannot go inside. Once we decided to leave they came after us and said 50k rp person without a guide. They were very aggressive and more like local thugs. So we left without entering.
