"Selanca is a joint initiative of the Forest Farmer Group in Lubuk Bendahara Ujung Batu, aimed at preserving and managing the former Perhutani forest area for tourism purposes," said Irwan.

He further explained that they opened up a portion of the previously palm oil plantation-covered forest and transformed it into a waterfall tourist destination.

Irwan emphasized that Air Terjun Selanca still prioritizes the natural beauty of the surroundings without excessive exploitation.

"Selanca is not yet fully developed. Currently, we only have one attraction, which is a gentle waterfall and a pool where visitors can swim and enjoy nature," he elaborated.

To enter Air Terjun Selanca, visitors are required to pay a parking fee of IDR 5,000 for motorcycles and IDR 10,000 for cars. The entrance ticket prices are affordable, starting from IDR 20,000 for adults and IDR 10,000 for children.
