Depart from Curup, the capital city of Rejang Lebong Regency. Make your way up the magestic hills, passing rich vegetable plantations to the trailhead. Beginning as a small dirt road, the trail eventually becomes a small path winding through coffee and palm sugar plantations. After an easy walk, arrive at your campsite for lunch and a much deserved rest. After lunch (or during), enjoying soaking yourself in a warm hotspring-fed swimming hole next to the campsite.
After a bite to eat and a rest, you will continue on to Beringin Tiga waterfall, about 250m from your campsite. Almost always damp due to springs coming out of the walls, you descend down a steep embankment and enjoy the beautiful scenery before returning to the campsite to rest or soak again in the natural “hot tub” close by.
Once you’ve had a fulfillling breakfast, it’s time to explore the second waterfall, called Curug Air Terjun. While not more than 500m from your campsite, this waterfall lies at the base of a steep ravine, requiring safety ropes to assist in descent as well as ascent. Your heart will race as you experience the adventure of exploring the Sumatran jungle, including the exhilaration when you view the awe-inspiring waterfall at the base of the ravine. Two separate waterfalls are here, one hot and one cold, falling next to one another and mixing at the bottom to form a delightfully-warm pool. Rest here for lunch, taking in the amazing views afforded by the Curug Embun waterfalls. Spend some time bathing in the warm pools and exploring your surroundings, including a cave close to the waterfalls.
After soaking up the warm waters and beauty around you, begin the ascent to our campground and then back up to the trailhead. Wash off in the local bathing area and then return to Curup to prepare for your next adventure in with us in Bengkulu.
