Enrich yourself with what Lombok has to offer as you embark on this day trip. You'll appreciate the beauty and scenic views of nature that are tucked away from more tourists. So bring your explorers' pants for this adventure and gear up for a ride to the waterfalls. These beautiful waterfalls are hidden in the rice fields and hills at the foot of Rinjani volcano - that simply translates to a fantastic time here.
Your destination is 15km east of Mataram and 1.5 hours from Senggigi. A guide shall pick you up from Senggigi, and drive past the city of Mataram and ever-crowded Cakranegara. Just half an hour into your 1.5 hour drive, you will leave the hustle and bustle of crowds, and enter a serene area with bumpy roads. But it is said that the bumpier the roads, the better your view gets - a great trade-off don't you think!
Just before reaching the waterfalls, you're due to arrive at an area that isn't accessible by vehicles during rainy season, so you'll have to walk from here on. But don't worry your walk shall be worth your while as you're headed towards a tropical jungle with an array of trees and plants.
Within a mere 10-minutes of walking you will reach the first waterfall - Benang Stokel. And simply continue walking another 30-minutes and you're at the second waterfall - Benang Klambu. Don't let the word "walk" intimidate you, for both waterfalls are easy to reach, and can be booked as a day trip or an activity en route Rinjani.
By the way, your walk to Benang Klambu, is accessible via a walk through a banana plantation. You'll also have to get up small hills, but the longer you take to get to your destination, the more rewarding your trip.
