Becoming a diver in Gili Meno

Life of C

Gili Meno is the calmest Island among 3 Gili Islands (Trawangan, Air and Meno) near Bali and Lombok. If you like simple, minimal and silence, Gili Meno is just for you.

The Elephant Cave is actually a large rock with an opening and an interconnected small chamber. (T shaped pathway) There are some beautiful carvings on the exterior; part of the original temple walls have collapsed, but the interior of this sacred cave is still intact. It can gets quite smoky from all the offerings…
