Benang Kelambu WaterfallMount Rinjani National Park, Lombok
If there is one thing everyone must do in the Indonesian island of Lombok, it's go chasing waterfalls, none more spectacular than the natural curtain of Benang Kelambu Waterfall in Mount Rinjani National Park.
Trecking around half a kilometre up the mountainous landscape, past Benang Setokel Waterfall (which translates to bundle of thread and is three waterfalls cascading into a pond) and Tiara Dewi Anjani waterfall, and up a steep 100-metre staircase, you'll arrive at Kelambu.
The word itself means curtain, which makes total sense when you see the crystal waters flowing through a wall of greenery. Multiple waterfalls merge together to create a curtain-like view of around 40-metres, where you can walk beneath the cool water or bathe in a nearby pool.
The entrance to the park is located approximated 1.5 hours from Mataram by vehicle. There are also tours which run to the area.
