Lombok in West Nusa Tenggara has many stunning, captivating places. Here are six of them!
Rising to 3,726m above sea level, Mt Rinjani is the second highest volcano in Indonesia. The mountain, part of the UNESCO Global Geoparks network, is a popular destination for trekking and climbing.
Lombok is blessed with amazingly beautiful beaches. One must-visit beach is Tebing: surrounded by cliffs that are the result of the eruption of Mt Samalas in 1257, this beach has wonderful views.
Danau Segara Anak
Segara Anak is a lake with a name that means ‘child of the sea’, a reference to the blue sea-like colour of its water. It is a volcanic lake about 2,000m above sea level.
Trawangan, Meno and Air are the most famous gilis, or small islands, outside Lombok. Expect to see colourful coral, turtles and many different kinds of fish when snorkelling in the water of the gilis.
The dazzling rays of sunlight shining down through a hole make this cave special. Aside from the attractive scenery, the cave is also home to more than a thousand bats.
Mangku Sakti waterfall
Lombok has many waterfalls, including the famous Sindang Gila and Tiu Kelep falls, but the one that shouldn’t be missed is Mangku Sakti, situated at the foot of Mt Rinjani.
