Sindang Gila waterfall and Tiu Kelep waterfalls
Two waterfalls are located in Senaru Village, the area of the National Park of Mount Rinjani. The second waterfall location adjacent to each other. Every day especially on weekends many tourists who visit these attractions. From the ticket sales counter, visitors must enter on foot down the hundreds of stairs to visit the waterfall Sindang Gila in Lombok island Indonesia
The origin of the name Sindang Gila i.e. when there are mad lion or animal in the local language is referred to in your spare time making crazy disorders in village. The citizens of rollicking chasing Lions until into the forest, eventually discovering waterfalls. At first glance these two-storey waterfall. However, if we observe carefully, encouragement of water plunging down an indirect but rather little survives on a cliff that is somewhat indented like shaped pond shelter temporarily. The tourists are usually directly in the body itself, so they feel the urge fresh water from the waterfall from the source direction from Lake Segara Anak, that distance is far enough in the area of Mount Rinjani.
Not far from the waterfall Sindang Gila, there are waterfalls not less beautiful Waterfall, Tiu Kelep. Journey to the waterfall takes about 40 minutes walk from the waterfall Sindang Gila. The tourists have to down the stairs, and passed the trail follow the flow irrigation, then crossed the river the Rocky then proceeded across the footpath on the right left many leafy trees. When compared to the Waterfall Sindang Gila and waterfalls Tiu Kelep nicer and encouragement of its stronger and bigger. There are myths surrounding communities, the water in the vicinity of the Tiu Kelep can make someone more ageless one year of age in fact.
Once satisfied the natural enchantment to two waterfalls, the tourists can try a more exciting challenge again. On the side of the bridge there is irrigation water tunnel. Looks like ordinary tunnel, the challenge is down the tunnel with water flow is quite heavy and very strong. If not careful, the water will push our body. If not satisfied, you can return to the tunnel down to the opposite direction. Preparing the one down the tunnel against the heavy water flow.
Tourism object that is almost similar to the waterfall Sindang Gila and Tiu Kelep is Benang Stokel waterfall and Benang Kelambu waterfall. Two waterfalls are located in the village of Aik Berik, district Batu Kliang North, Central Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara. In addition to a pair of these because of the waterfall is located adjacent to each other, the four aforementioned waterfall at its source Lake Segara Anak. on Mount Rinjani.
The difference of the two pairs of this waterfall is the access road to the tourist. In contrast to the access road to the waterfall Sindang Gila and waterfalls Tiu Kelep already paved smooth and reached by public transportation, the access road leading to the waterfall, Benang Stokel Waterfall and Benang Kelambu Waterfall not too smooth.
The street is not very wide, car-carrying vehicle was dominated by the results of the Earth from “Kawasan Hutan Kemasyarakatan (HKM)” we mean “The Civic Forest” around the site of the waterfall. But the scenery along the way is very indulgent eye. The paddy harvest as the giant tapestry ready. The farmers are planting rice Schoolhouse-brewers. Young children playing in the yard of the House. Not only that, the cattle like cows and buffaloes freely in search of food comfortably
Location of Waterfalls Benang Stokel a closer entrance ticket sales counters of the tourism objects. Just walk about 15 minutes, the tourists are treated to scenic waterfalls that are shaped like Stokel (roll of yarn). Waterfall Benang Kelambu located above the Waterfall Benang Stokel, it takes about 30 minutes walk down a path that is wide enough.
Landscape in the Benang Kelambu Waterfall is more beautiful and mesmerizing. As the name implies, gust waterfalls form such as nets or curtains. Some people believe that the water around the waterfall Benang Kelambu can cure diseases.
Waterfall tourism potential, unfortunately it is not balanced with adequate facilities. Toilets around the sights there are mostly less manicured. Lack of awareness of tourists to keep clean, and also became a separate issue. It would be wonderful if the community and local Government jointly develop potential regions. The expectation, in addition to keeping nature also giving welfare to the people around.
