Where to Go on a Tour of Lombok?

Mount Rinjani

Among the main attractions on Lombok are Mount Rinjani and Gunung Rinjani National Park. Rinjani is the second largest volcano in Indonesia at more than 3,700 meters and a pilgrimage site for Hindus and Sasak. A 3-day trekking tour is the best way to experience the natural phenomenon. However, the way up to the summit brings even experienced hikers to their limits and is extremely demanding.

Tanjung Aan

With its crystal clear water and powder sugar fine sandy beach, Tanjung Aan Beach gives you that Caribbean feeling. You're guaranteed to find a quiet spot in the two-kilometer-long bay, and the nearest fresh coconut isn't far away, either.

Tetebatu

Tetebatu, in the heart of the island, is often called the "Ubud of Lombok". Indeed, the lush green rice terraces are reminiscent of the popular tourist attraction in Bali. What's more, at Tetebatu you'll experience a phenomenal view of Mount Rinjani.

Pura Lingsar Temple

On the outskirts of the island's capital Mataram, near Narmada Park, lies the magnificent Pura Lingsar Temple, one of the most beautiful Hindu temples in Lombok. What is special about this place of worship is that besides Hindus, Christians and Buddhists also come to Pura Lingsar to pray and make offerings. Less
