Jeruk Manis, Lombok Overview

For one who loves nature and visits the Indonesian Island of Lombok, Jeruk Manis is paradise for them. It is an enchanting waterfall that trickles down the southern slopes of Mount Rinjani. The literal meaning of the word 'Jeruk Manis', is 'Sweet Lime' in Indonesian language. Reflecting it's apt name, Jeruk Manis is a cool, calm and green place - in fact one may even call it secluded, to extents that even the sun’s rays don’t reach here. It indeed is an escape into the beautiful nuances of nature, away from the bustling cities. The sweet relief that it provides for a change is quite the reason why Jeruk Manis is called the sweet place.

The captivating 40 metre high waterfall flows into a rocky river. In 1983, the people, Pak Muis, belonging to a nearby village, discovered the Jeruk Manis waterfall. On either sides it, lies a thick growth of rainforest vegetation. An extremely calm place to hang around for the day, Jeruk Manis Waterfall is not only a must visit for all nature lovers but others as well who look forward to some peace and solace, away from their monotonous and fast paced lives

Jeruk Manis Trek

To reach the Jeruk Manis Waterfall, you can walk through the sweet rice paddies around Tete Batu. However, the journey does not end at the entrance gate of the waterfall as it located further 1.5 km inside, which is again a fifteen-minute walk. However, the walk to Jeruk Manis is an extremely serene one. There are a number of trees of extremely special kinds along the entire road - Lemuru, Durian, Liuh-Liluh, Bajur, Randu and Lixoura. The flora and fauna of the place are indeed captivating for tourists.

There are three gazebos placed at different distances for people to rest while they walk their way up to the waterfall. From the third gazebo, the entire rainforest can be seen spread out like a green mattress across the entire stretch of land around Jeruk Manis. Once you have reached the waterfall, you can either swim in the small pond right next to it or decide to sit on the rocks that line both the pond and the waterfall, with the relaxing spray of water.
