Then, the final destination of the day will be Air Terjun Sendang Gila and Air Terjun Tiu Kelep. Lombok people believe these two waterfalls able to bring peace to our mind. And the natives believe that, by having a shower one time in the waterfall, it will let us feel one year younger. Let’s go for it! ~ We will have our lunch at a nearby restaurant in between destinations and back to hotel after that. At night, we will have our dinner at the local restaurant.
