A hidden gem!. The trek is Not Too steep but since we go under the pouring Rain, Its a bit slippery.

Actually there are 2 waterfalls almost similar, but since we are with kids, Its imposibble to go to the second one which is on top of it. My husband went there with guide and he Said it was as beautiful as the one that we visited.

Among all the waterfall that we visited in Sumba, Waimarang is out favorite one

After The trekking we may Enjoy The hot instant noodle at The stall near The parking lot, if you want to change clothes there is a cubicle that you can use, but if you want to Take shower, you have to pay a small amount of money for the water.

It's located in the middle of jungle. You need to trek about 30-40 minutes from parking area. The trekking area is quite challenging and full of adventures and breathtaking. Once you reach there, you can't resist yourself to not jump and swim to the small lagoon. It's really refreshing.

To get to this waterfall, need some great efforts coz there are lack of infrastructures. You need good mountain shoes for tracking and will be better if you go during weekday, so you can enjoy the waterfall with not many people.
Good to put sign "Do Not Smoking", coz so many local people coming there and smokes.

The last end of the path to Waimarang nature pool need to add stairs. It is very steep and slippery. Difficult for the elders and kids to access. The road need to be fixed too. The entrance and parking fee have to be managed well as there is no official regulation on it. Someone sitting in a hut on the parking area expecting to get payment from visitors

I considered myself very lucky, while visitting this waterfall. Since there are only 2 groups including mine, which falls into total 10 persons.
It makes you can enjoy this secluded natural pond with small waterfall just the 10 of you.
It is very relaxing and soothing.

My driver told me that if it is on a normal touristy days, there could be hundreds of people coming in. Which would not be comfortable and safe enough.
Since, the location is not to big to cater large people. And the path track to reach this location is full of steep hills and lots of steps / stairs.

So timing is very important. I suggest to arrived earlier in the morning, meaning 0800AM arrived at the location. Besides, during the time the sun is still friendly.

If it is on a rainy season, you might want to take a good attention with the rain-cloud movement. Make sure you are out of the location (in the main road) when the rain is about to come. The quite a chance, you've might stucked due to flood river that might blocked the vehicles entrance / exit.

There are no admissions fee to this attraction.

Have ever been to swim in a private swimming pool in a jungle, somewhere down under the hill, walking, hiking, climbing in a rocky narrow path for about 30 minutes long? That's the answer how you can reach Waimarang waterfall. The effort is equal with the best panorama ever! 👍

After a 20 minutes walk down... sometimes a bit steep but not too difficult...Waimarang Waterfall just pays back for the long drive and the short walk....what a stunning place...make sure you have lunch and drinks with you to enjoy the place for a few hours. Come early to be alone...just a couple tourists a day and mostly locals come for a refreshing swim.
Most beautiful waterfall I have seen in Indonesia so fare.

I was hesitated in the beginning because people said it's very hard and a bit dangerous. But at the end I got courage to do this, and it's totally worth it. You need approx 20-30 minute trekking down walk through the forest to the waterfall. Little bit slippery at the end, but good things now they put some bamboo on the side of the dangerous part so you can grab that and hold on it while you trekked down. Don't forget to put some sunblock because the heat sting.
If anyway you wanna swim, you can swim to the waterfall, another option you can jump from 1 rock to another rock and climb the wall (they have some food step on it- but a bit slippery) .. you can walk to the above level.. where you can sit down and enjoy the view, or you can jump to the water (very clear , cold and fresh water)...
the 3rd option, you can go higher level by climbing the waterfall and go to the next area (but I didn't do this)
the trip go back up is a bit tricky when you wet, it will be easier if you dry yourself/ change before hike up

Bring your best sandals as you will have to go through 20-30 minutes steep and slippery trail. But I can tell you it was worth every effort. The lagoon was deeply enchanting with its peaceful surrounding and blue color. Unlike Weekuri, Waimarang has its water from natural spring water.

If you are an adventure-junkie, you can rock/wall-climb to get into the upper lagoon that is said to be even more gorgeous than the lower area.

Let the local kids be your guide, but don't give them money. Give them imported candies or biscuits instead. Or even better you can bring them storybooks to read. Sumba is still underdeveloped and we don't want the nice kids to be materialistic and rude to tourists.
