Cunca Rami waterfall

Located 25 km from Sten Lodge eco Homestay. This is our favourite waterfall. The first 20 km is fine with scooter or car. Then a 5 km hike to the waterfall. Very quiet and peaceful, without to many tourists.

Cunca Wulang waterfall

Located 15 km from Sten Lodge eco Homestay. Cunca Wulang is the most well known waterfall in the region but in our opinion to touristic and overpriced guides. It’s worth a visit but it is not our first choice.
