Lombok Waterfalls

When I originally booked my accommodation for Bali I chose to spend 10 days in Ubud. I was getting my hair cut and my hairdresser who had been backpacking suggested visiting the Gili Islands. I then spoke to my homie Edders and we spent an evening working it all out. It was a tight schedule but luckily we managed to squeeze everything in. 

My first stop was to Lombok where I wanted to visit the famous waterfalls. A quick internet search meant we found Mul who is a tour guide. His reviews were outstanding so I pinged over an email and decided to book him for the day. I was picked up from my hotel at 8am after a lovely breakfast of pancakes. 

We then headed to the first waterfall which was the furthest away and no other tourists were there. I loved the fact that I didn’t have to battle my way for a clear shot or selfie.

We then headed back down and made our way to the next two waterfalls. It was flooded with tourists but was worth the trek. 

We then made our way to a local village where you can see how locals build roofs and how they live. 

After that we were hungry and went to my tour guides home village. The Bungalows are super cool and I felt right at home when I ate there. The family was very welcoming and the food was spot on. I had a great cup of coffee. 

We then entered another village to see the Bamboo Mosque. You can’t pray here anymore but it was really interesting. 

Then it was time to catch the sunset and go back to Senggigi. 

Anyone wanting to do a tour of the waterfalls or Mount Rinjani then I couldn’t recommend Mul enough.
