This is an easy 2 hours walk through one of Lombok’s most spectacular nature settings. Leave the road behind for a short while and enter the magic world of our beautiful rainforest reserve. Here, the sound of tropical forest birds soon give way to the thunder of the towering Sindang Gila waterfall. The brave may even venture for an exhilarating bath behind the white water curtain – the local people believe this to be a cure for disease. Alternatively, just relax in the cool shade of a rainforest giant and take in the magic scenery around you. Maybe the long tailed monkey will entertain you with its cheekiness.
From the waterfall, your guided walk continues along the slopes of Mount Rinjani to several beautiful viewpoints high above the river. As you leave the lush green rainforest behind, artistically terraced rice fields seem to stretch forever towards the blue waters of the Flores Sea. To the north towers the sharp volcanic peak of Lombok’s sacred Gunung Rinjani. Take time to enjoy this fantastic landscape.
Departs from Rinjani Base Camp cottage through the main entrance gate of waterfall and finish at irrigation panel at Batu Koq village.
Bring a sun hat, water and plenty of film
