Lombok Tours

Lombok Island is a tropical paradise with magnificent stretches of natural beach, excellent diving and snorkelling off the three coral-ringed Gili Islands and traditional native villages, ancient temples and palaces. Mount Rinjani dominates Lombok with its high peak and two-mile wide caldera which last erupted in 1901. In the crater is a lake called Segara Anak (Child of the Sea) and a new mountain christened Gunung Baru which appeared in 1942. The people of Lombok are a gentle mix of Hindu-Balinese and native Moslem-Sasaks, each with their own variety of arts, crafts, customs and traditions. Many say that Lombok is like the Bali of long ago. The island lies across the straits from Bali and is quickly reached by ferry or plane.
 

Mt. Rinjani Once in Lombok, you can enjoy the peace and tranquility along its shores, or explore the island's largest towns of Ampenan, Mataram and Cakranegara. If you are fit you can trek up Mount Rinjani through scenic countryside and picturesque traditional villages and treat yourself to the most spectacular panoramic views.
  

The countryside has a number of traditional villages worth visiting, including a blacksmith's village, a native weaving village with dome-shaped thatched huts, and the royal water garden of Narmada in which stands the Pura Lingsar, the oldest and most sacred Hindu temple on the island, thought to be the only Hindu shrine in the world where both Hindus and Moslems come to worship.
 

Famous for its 'ikat' hand-woven textiles, Lombok is relatively undiscovered, except for the town of Senggigi which is now a major resort.

The beautiful Gili islands of Lombok are paradise, with white sand beaches, few people and some great snorkeling and diving spots. Nightlife in this area may be a good alternative or even for a night dive; others are a complete escape from the crowds and offer some fabulous trekking and beautiful panorama for the more adventurous.

As well as scenery, Lombok offers terrific sightseeing and shopping, with some villages producing famous Lombok pottery and silk weaving at reasonable prices. Whether you get the car or motorbike and drive yourself, or arrange for a driver to show you the way, you will find a country with little influence yet from modern development and tourism. Even on the road, the bulk to traffic is the cidomo, or horse and cart.

When there are so much more of everything to see, meanwhile, you have such a limited time, a good planning becomes very essential to help you to make the most of your time away.

Sumbawa once known as 'the sandalwood island' is famous for its horses, beautiful beaches and 2,820 foot tall Mount Tambora, now dormant, which last erupted in 1815 killing 12,000 people. The caldera has two coloured lakes and the rim offers spectacular views as far as the island of Lombok.

The village of Tepas has traditional-style architecture and the former palace in Bima is now being turned into a museum. Sape, where sailboats are still made in the traditional way is a convenient point of departure for Komodo Island. Nearby Moyo Island has a nature reserve with wild oxen, deer, wild boar and spectacular birds.

Rinjani Mountain, the third peak in Indonesia, with its Crater Lake Segara Anak provides an everlasting mountain attraction. The locals of Lombok frequently make rituals visit to Rinjani as it’s considered one of their sacred places. Segara Anak’s hot spring, the steamy Gua Susu, and Pancuran Emas” the golden fountain “ are some of the main spots where the locals perform their rituals. For mountain lovers, Rinjani is one of Lombok’s most beautiful sites.

 


Komodo Island, located between Sumbawa and Flores is quite barren except for its fascinating giant lizard, the Komodo dragon. These monitor lizards are indigenous to the region and grow up to three metres long, feeding on the carrion of goats and deer. The people live in a fishing village and most supplement their income by breeding goats for tourists to feed the lizards. Komodo is now a nature reserve, and is most easily reached by ferry from Flores.
 

 Flores was named by early Portuguese settlers and the island still reflects much of their influence in language, music, cuisine, dress and religion. The mountain of Kalimutu offers spectacular views of its three crater lakes which continually change colour. The town of Ende is where Sukarno resided in exile during the early period of the nationalistic movement in 1936 and his house is now a museum. The town shows a marked Arab influence as a result of traders stopping over in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Yogyakarta was once the seat of the mighty Javanese empire of Mataram Dynasty (1575-1640), Yogyakarta nowadays still enjoys the kingdom life while considered administratively as part of Indonesia. Yogyakarta has numerous thousand-year-old temples, surrounded by an artistic atmosphere, and overwhelmed by typical Javanese hospitality.

Ijen Plateau
Ijen Plateau lies in the centre of Ijen-Merapi Malang Reserve, which extends over much of the mountainous region directly west of Banyuwangi and borders on the Baluran National Park in the northeast. As at Mt. Bromo, the caldera is best viewed from the air. Fortunately, almost all commercial flights operating between Denpasar - Surabaya, Yogyakarta or Jakarta usually fly, if not directly over, then close by Ijen plateau, where the seemingly luminous blue/green crater lake forms an unmistakable landmark. It is beautiful scenery and located about 32 km to the north west of Banyuwangi.

 

Grajagan ( G-land )
Plengkung is known as one of the best surfing beaches in the world. The word of “G” in “G-Land” derives from Grajagan, the name of the bay where the huge waves were found at the south of the Banyuwangi. It is surrounded by virgin tropical land forest. G lad offers the worlds most demanding surfing sport, and recommended for professional surfers only. May to October is the best time for surfing. No doubt it is a world of surfer paradise.

However it is not recommended for novices
