Senaru Village and Waterfall Tour
The village of Senaru, an easy 2.5 hours drive from Mataram or Senggigi, is the main access to the National Park Gunung Rinjani. The village has a range of accommodation in simple home stays (losmen), and a number of cafes serving delicious local specialties. The Rinjani Trek Center at the trail-head offers displays, ecotourism activities, and visitor information.
Village guides escort visits to the adjacent traditional village, three waterfalls, and a number of Village Walks. Circuits include the one hour Rice Terraces and Waterfall Walk, or discover the highlights of Senaru in a lovely half-day Senaru Panorama
Senaru Waterfalls Sight-Seeing
This easy half – day walk explores the foothills of spectacular Rinjani volcano in Lombok’s northern district of Bayan.
Starting near the border of Gunung Rinjani National Park, your route follow old pathways amongst shady bamboo groves and village gardens before entering a wide, open landscape of rice terraces and palms. Following a winding irrigation channel you reach the lush rainforest of the famous Sendang Gila Waterfall Reserve. Along the way, discover tropical plants as your guide explains how the local people make practical use of them.
You came across the cheeky long tailed monkeys and, with a bit of luck, may even spot the rare ebony leaf monkey. Passing small hamlets where age-old traditions are practiced, you will gain insight into the colorful village life of the Sasak.
There is always something interesting happening here as you meet local people and admire traditional houses along the way. Make sure you bring your camera-the views are simply spectacular!
Each turn of the track offers new vistas as finally Rinjani-the sacred mountain of the Sasak people-emerges majestically above rice terraces and rainforest. This natural and cultural diversity makes the Panorama Walk an unforgettable Lombok experience.
