North Lombok is home to Indonesia’s second-highest volcano, Mount Rinjani. The fertile, volcanic soil makes the region lush and filled with wildlife, and agriculture is an integral part with crops like rice, cotton, cacao, corn, and tobacco growing. Unlike other areas of the island, North Lombok towns are not centred around tourists therefore some will have limited facilities available. Mount Rinjani National Park covers most of the region, making it is easy to explore the many waterfalls and walking tracks throughout.
When planning your trip to North Lombok, Senaru has some restaurants and small hotels to stay in for a night or two. However, consider residing in West Lombok and taking a day trip to the region for more accommodation options and a more comfortable stay. Public buses and bemo can be accessed to reach North Lombok; otherwise, there are many hire car and motorbike options to utilise.
