Less spectaculer but still very much worth it, continue on uphill from waterfall sendang gila about 40-1 hours ( depend on your fittness  this will involve a steep uphill climb & creek crossing others onstacle, Tiu Kelep has a nice bathing pool below the falls with very cool invosgatoring water

 

Guide trip to waterfall

Access to the primary waterfall of Sendang Gila is by way of an established pathway and steps and requires no special skills or knowledge as this pathway leads directly and quite unambiguously to the primary waterfall destination. The fixed price entrance fee is posted at the ticket booth at the top of the steps leading down to the waterfall site. If unsuccessful in gaining direct payment from a visitor the local touts and informal guides often demand a payment from the driver or guide who brought the visitor to the site.

The extraction of this payment may be done in a manner that is not immediately apparent to the visitor. Some of the accompanying guides and drivers who escort visitors to the Senaru area may explain this to the visitor, others may not. A reputable and suitably experienced guide is recommended to walk to the second waterfall. The use of a local guide is not required as most of the established and reputable Lombok tourism guides who take visitors to Senaru know this area well. It is essential to have a guide for Tiu Kelep as this third and more distant waterfall has a requirement for suitable climbing skills.
