HOW TO GET TO SENDANG GILE AND TIU KELEP WATERFALL

Sendang Gile and Tiu Kelep Waterfall are located in the mountainside village of Senaru, North Lombok. I arrived by boat from Bali to the harbour or Bangsal, North Lombok and after some haggling to score a good price for a taxi, we were on our way to Senaru. The taxi costs around 400,000 rupiah for a 2-hour drive to Senaru.

It is very easy to find a private taxi or a motorbike to rent at Bangsal Harbour. Expect to pay around 400,000 rupiah for a private taxi to Senaru. You can also rent motorbikes/scooters in Bangsal for approximately 60,000 rupiah per day.

The distance from Bangsal Harbour to Senaru is 60km and it is approximately a 2-hour drive.

BEST TIME TO VISIT SENDANG GILE AND TIU KELEP WATERFALL

It is best to visit Sendang Gile and Tiu Kelep waterfalls in the early morning before the crowds and you can potentially avoid the entrance fee the earlier you go. Although, the entrance fee is only 20,000 rupiah so it’s not a big bite out of the wallet if you end up having to pay. We decided to watch the sunrise over the rice field valley before taking the path down towards the falls.

SENDANG GILE WATERFALL (AIR TERJUN SENDANG GILE)

Sendang Gile waterfall is the first waterfall along the way to Tiu Kelep. Sendang Gile is a two-tiered cascading waterfall that spits out of the rock face high above. We were so early here that we only had to share this waterfall with the local monkeys!

You can also go swimming in the rock pools and get right beneath the falls at Air Terjun Sendang Gile.

From here head back up the track and to the left to continue on to Tiu Kelep waterfall. It is a moderate 30-minute walk through the jungle and manageable without the use of a guide.

RAINFOREST HIKE TO AIR TERJUN TIU KELEP

There is a couple of river crossings no more than knee deep and a muddy trail that leads through the jungle to the jaw-dropping sight of Air Terjun Tiu Kelep. There is no waterfall that I have seen that can compare to this. And even though this isn’t my first time here, Tiu Kelep waterfall never ceases to amaze me.

The water flows out of the walls and into a crystal clear pool below. There is a strong vortex like current directly beneath the main water flow so be careful not to get sucked in! The rocks are also super slippery, so if you are excited as I was when visiting Tiu Kelep waterfall, take care and watch your step!

WHERE TO STAY WHEN VISITING SENDANG GILE AND TIU KELEP WATERFALL

Blue Mountain Cottage is a small homestay in Senaru village within walking distance to Tiu Kelep and Sendang Gile waterfalls. The a/c rooms are only 100,000 rupiah per night. With two people to a room that’s the same price as a coffee where I am from! The owner of the homestay was rather humorous and tremendously helpful in organizing our trek to Mt. Rinjani.

SENDANG GILE AND TIU KELEP WATERFALL – THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO 

To get the best shots of Tiu Kelep waterfall you will need to stand a good 30m away from the pool due to the constant clouds of mist that will instantly wet your lens. The weather patterns around the base of Mt. Rinjani are very unpredictable so be prepared for a sudden downpour of rain. As soon as we got back to the homestay a storm rolled in for the good part of the afternoon.

There is not much in the way of snacks and water once you hit the trail to Sendang Gile and Tiu Kelep waterfalls, so be sure to pack something before you take the trek in.

This waterfall is hands down mother nature at its finest and I strongly recommend that you add it to your Lombok Itinerary!
