Beringin Tiga / Curug Embun
These breathtaking waterfalls are located near a small village in the Rejang Lebong Regency in Bengkulu province. This location includes a naturally fed hot water pool that you can relax in.
Day 1 – Relax in Nature’s Hot Tub
Make your way up the majestic 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. After lunch, enjoy taking a dip in a warm hot spring-fed swimming hole next to the campsite.
After a bite to eat and some rest, you will continue on to Beringin Tiga waterfall, about 250m from your campsite. The hike has springs coming out of the walls as 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.
Optional Day 2 – Majestic Curug Embun Falls
Once you’ve had a fulfilling breakfast, it’s time to explore the main waterfall, called Curug Air Terjun. While not more than 500m from your campsite, this waterfall lies at the base of a steep ravine, requiring a safety rope to assist in some spots. Your heart will race as you experience the adventure of 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. Rinse off in the local bathing area and then return to Curup to prepare for your next adventure in with us.
