TRADITIONAL VILLAGES

The Village of Senaru is the main gateway to Gunung Rinjani National Park, the most popular start point for the three days Rinjani Trek up Indonesia's second highest Peak (3,726 m). For he People of Lombok, Sasak and Balinese alike, the Volcano is revered as a sacred place and the adobe of Gods. Within the Spectacular Crater, the Lake Segara Anak is the destination of many pilgrims who place offering in the water and bathe away disease in the nearby Hot Springs.

The cool, Flower-filled Mountain Village of Senaru on the slopes of Mt. Rinjani stretches up a hillside spur along a winding road above Bayan. It is a scenic 2,5 hours drive from Mataram or Senggigi to Senaru. The Desa includes the hamlets of Senaru, Batu Koq and Tumpang Sari, and all offer accommodation in simple but pretty homestays (Losmen) with lovely views.

National park and village entry fees are paid here. Village guides, including several local women, have been specially trained to escort visitors around the sights. Arrange a guided excursion through Lombok Network Outdoor & Adventure.

 
WATERFALLS

Senaru’s best known attraction is the Sendang Gila waterfall which attracts many thousands of Indonesian and foreign visitors annually. Located at about 600m above sea level, the waterfall is an easy 20 minute walk down a graded trail and steps from Senaru Village, a pleasant alternative return route winds along the edge of the steep valley, following the irrigation canal. For the more adventurous, Senaru’s “second waterfall” Tiu Kelep is another hour’s walk upriver from Sendang Gila. The scramble over rocks through the tropical forest is rewarded by the beauty of the waterfall and a swim in its deep pool. It is said locally that every time you swim behind the main waterfall of Tiu Kelep you become a year younger!

With access from the main road, Senaru’s “third waterfall” Betara Lenjang is a true rainforest adventure strictly for rock climbers with local guide and equipment.
