A drive along the quiet picturesque coastal roads bring you to the north of Lombok. Here we stop at Segentar traditional village where little has changed for generations and also a visit to Bayan to see the oldest mosque on Lombok. Set amidst stunning sloping rice paddies this area is where the original religion in Lombok first began, Wektu Telu. It is still practiced today and the locals still uphold animist beliefs and ceremonies are given to honor local spirits, give thanks for the harvest and to ensure rain.
Onward to Senaru, a sleepy village nestled in the foothills of the mighty Rinjani volcano. An area of outstanding beauty, this is where we do our soft trekking to the waterfalls. Descend the ancient stairway to the magnificent Sindang Gila waterfall, the water cascading down for a dizzying height of 50 metres. Then follow the track through the rain forest,over an antiquated bridge eventually coming to Tiu Kelep waterfall, a magical place where you can bathe in the pool below the falls.
Stay overnight at an organic farm home-stay near Senaru. Here you will receive a wonderful welcome & your evening meal will be cooked using produce freshly picked directly from the garden.
After a good healthy breakfast we make our way up into the mountains & down into Sembalun village. Sembalun has some of the best scenery in Lombok. Its renowned for the spectacular vistas of its patchwork fields spread across the valley. Rice & strawberry fields abound & apple tree orchards.
We then follow the pass down to the east coast to Sambelia.
Stay overnight at a lovely family owned hotel right on the beach.
If you awake early be sure to catch the awesome sunrise over the ocean from your terrace.
A private snorkeling boat trip today to a beautiful string of uninhabited islands just off the coast. Pristine white beaches set in warm turquoise waters. The snorkeling here is the best on Lombok. The corals are alive & beautiful! You are bound to encounter Nemo amongst the dazzling array of tropical fish. The highlight is perhaps the tiny islet of Gili Kapal,simply a white sand bar in the midst of the blue ocean.
