Waterfall In Rinjani slope, Benang Stokel Waterfall is located in Central Lombok Regency, North Batu Keliang District is part of a waterfall that surrounds the southern slopes of Mount Rinjani, if you want to visit this place coming from the direction of Mataram city there are two choice routes through Sayang-sayang – Suranadi-Sesaot and coming out at Kekeru market.
I recommend this route besides being quiet, there are also many beautiful views of rice fields and gardens, but this route is far more than the main route. Through the path of Mataram – Narmada – Mantang traffic is very crowded besides that some of the scenery is blocked by shopping buildings.
Direction to Waterfall In Rinjani slope
Before Mantang there were 2 right turning lanes namely the main route to Labuhan Lombok and a straight lane with narrower roads leading to Aik Bukak after about 7 km to the traditional market Tratak.
There was a direction to the left BENANG STOKEL after entering the 300 m you will be presented with a view beautiful and wide rice fields to penetrate the slopes of Mount Rinjani, here you can stop off the vehicle to take photos along the way to the parking lot in the waterfall area.
Arriving at the location of the parking area each visitor must come to the reservation counter for the purposes of registration and administration and pay for the entrance ticket, there are selected packages involving local guides with the intention of empowering local residents.
Around the area there is Benang Stokel Waterfall (10 minutes walk) and Benang Kelambu waterfall (30 minutes on foot) usually people come to visit this place to visit both waterfalls namely Stokel Yarn and Mosquito Net Yarn.
Judging from the two names, this waterfall is an illustration of the shape of the two waterfalls “Stokel, in Lombok language means a piece or bundle like the two braids.
Whereas this Mosquito Net yarn illustrates the shape of a waterfall like resembling a thread that falls in the shape of a mosquito net, maybe this is just a name there is no other reason than this name apart from the illustration of the conditions and appearance of the two waterfalls.
What more in this Waterfall, “Benang stokel”
The core of tourism to this location is actually not only presenting the second form of waterfall, but besides that, this location also provides a very beautiful village and rice fields, especially when the sunny weather of Mount Rinjani in the north will color this location.
