Mount Rinjani is the second highest volcano in Indonesia and is an excellent trip for the more adventurous and active traveller to Lombok.
Standing at 3,726 metres (12,224 feet) high, a trek to the summit is not for the faint hearted, or the unfit, and will generally be at least 3 days, with two nights camping.
The route up the mountain includes some wonderful flora and fauna and keep your eyes out for the wildlife which includes spectacular parrots and long-tailed grey macaques.
Narmada Water Palace
Built in 1727 the Narmada Water Palace is an important Hindu religious and spiritual retreat.
The grounds include some wonderful gardens as well as the spring, which is said to bless anyone who swims in it. Please remember this is a religious site when visiting.
The incredible Gili Islands are made up of Gili Air, Gili Meno and Gili Trawangan which offer beach paradises with world renowned scuba diving and snorkelling. Motor vehicles are banned on all three islands which help to make them a true paradise.
There is so much to do here we have a dedicated page on the top things to do in the Gili Islands.
Lombok has a number of excellent beaches with white, black and even pink sand on the shores of wonderful crystal clear seas, coral reefs and some excellent surfing locations.
Tiu Kelep Waterfall
Located in the north of Lombok among wonderful jungle, it is well worth the 45 minute walk from Senaru Village.
There is a wonderful pool for swimming at the base of the 50 metre falls.
There is also another waterfall nearby, Sindang Gila, which can easily be visited on the same day.
Home to the local textile industry and here you can watch the beautiful cloth, often inlaid with silver or gold, being woven. You can even take part in a workshop and learn the basics of the craft.
There are a number of small islands around the Lombok coastline many of which offer stunning white sand beach and scenery that most postcard photographers would be envious of.
Many also have excellent coral reef that are perfect for snorkelling.
Set among the rice paddies, Tetebatu Village offers an escape from beach life and an opportunity to learn more about the history and culture of Lombok.
The area is also a good starting point to hire a local guide and trek in the local hills which are home to beautiful waterfalls and swimming pools.
