Lombok Travel Guide

Situated just east from Bali, the island of Lombok is often referred to as “Bali 30 years ago” as it yields an untouched charm. Also known as the famed “Island of the Gods”, travelers can expect a varied landscape of rugged mountains, sweeping coastlines, sandy beaches and barren volcanic hillsides, all enhanced with a rich and diverse culture.

Lombok is also home to the second highest mountain in Indonesia, Mount Rinjani, at 3,726 meters, which is in the center of the island and many overnight trips can be arranged to the rim of the volcano. The island is widely recognized for its exquisite handicrafts such as handmade pottery and traditional songket weaving at the village of Sukarara. The village is known for its producing in hand woven silk or cotton that is intricately patterned with gold or silver threads. Lombok may not have the spit and polish of Bali, but certainly does offer a tropical paradise atmosphere where travelers can appreciate pristine beaches lined with palm trees and nature lovers that can engage in the many scenic hikes and treks available. Water-enthusiasts can also enjoy some of the best surf spots in the world in South Lombok.
