Lombok provides a variety of attractions to explore across the island. Whether it's a trek up to Mount Rinjani to witness views from the summit, a swim in the many gushing waterfalls or wandering through the local handicraft villages. The vast nature and wildlife available to explore come as a refreshing experience for travellers.
To learn about local wildlife, visit the Lombok Wildlife Park for an opportunity to bathe with elephants and meet the resident orangutan. Continuing with wildlife conservation, take a boat across to the Gili Islands and experience the Gili Meno Turtle Sanctuary. While the sanctuary is only small, it makes a big difference to the turtle population. It is an incredible and unique initiative with a focus on conserving the island's turtles.
Take a day trip and explore the waterfalls throughout Rinjani National Park, with Sendang Gile, Tiu Kelep, Benang Stokal and Benang Kelambu to explore. For a unique and spiritual experience, Pura Agung Narmada was once a temple belonging to a king and now offers a three-hectare park to explore, a very sacred site for Hindus. The park holds freshwater flowing from Mount Rinjani, and it is said to be the water of immortality.
Take on Mount Rinjani and endure a three-day hike up to the summit, passing by Lake Segara Anak and sweeping views across the valley. This hike is for experienced trekkers due to its challenging nature.
Lombok has many attractions to immerse yourself amongst the vast nature and wildlife surrounding. Plan your trip ahead to book a tour and learn about its cultural significance, or explore waterfalls and parks on your own for some time out in nature.
