Many different companies offer rafting tours, starting in Batu Mekar, in the west. The region of Lingsar is filled with tropical hotspots when it comes to rafting. Sitting close to Mount Rinjani brings the area a lot of natural fertility, and surrounding the area is thick rainforest and fresh springs flowing. On the journey, you will hear birds chirping and vast wildlife too. In the springs of Jangkuk River, look out for carp and tilapia swimming along, with grade 3+ rapids, making it a popular destination for rafting.
