Half Day Senaru Waterfalls
Senaru Water falls
In order to get to Senaru Water falls, there are three routes that visitors commonly take, both domestic and international visitors. The first is irrigation track, main track and local government track. Each of the routes has their own advantages. From the irrigation track, we only need 20 minutes to get to the destination through a flat and long road which has amazing view of bangket bayan and sea view as a whole and also a half part of the villages at Kecamatan Bayan at the north side. Meanwhile, the main track is located between the irrigation track and local government track. The view along this track is as equally pretty as the view from irrigation track. We can see the top of Rinjani Mountain and a half of bangket uban (traditional bangket uban). The road in this main track is in a very good condition, using permanent road shaped like 600-step stairs. The amount of time needed to get to Sindang Gila Waterfall is much shorter compared to the other tracks, but the road is slightly sliding down and will be a bit ascending when we go back. Meanwhile, local government track has a more beautiful view compared to the others since the road is located higher than the other two. Moreover, there is a specific area provided for the visitors to enjoy the view before they continue the rip to the water fall. This road is a bit descending compared to the other two roads.
The trip from hotel where you stay to Sindang Gila Water Fall will take 30 minutes long. Sindang Gila Waterfall is the most visited tourism object. Not only it is easy to reach, but it also has special charm of natural water which falls down from 35 m height on a hill shaped like stairs. There are various kinds of facilities such as small mosque, photo corners and bathing clothes rental every Sunday. After 30 minutes grasping the marvelous beauty of Sindang Gila waterfall, we will continue our trip to TIU KELEP Waterfall, the second waterfall, through a bit challenging track –a bridge and irrigation canal and crossing rivers twice to see the monkeys inhabiting the tall trees along the road. There are many kinds of tall trees and fruit trees of which becoming their food, whether they are black monkeys or brown monkeys. In about 30 minutes you will get to the Tiu Kelep Waterfall which is also known as air terbang (water fly). In this area, your sight will be satisfied with a well-formed waterfall of which naturally shaped like a pond (tiu). Moreover, there is a huge waterfall coming from the highest land surrounded with another waterfall on the second level spreading downhill, forming an extremely marvelous waterfall. Furthermore, the reflection of light to the water-fly forming a breathtaking rainbow that you will never see in other places. Around the waterfall, there is a green wall covered in moss and in the East part of the waterfall you will find a small blurry cave. This is the place for the visitors to take a bath. However, you are prohibited to swim straight to the water fall due to the heavy torrents of water that leads to fatal risk. After about an hour enjoying the beauty of the waterfall, we will go back to hotel through the previous route but we need to take the 600-step stairs first.
