Mount Rinjani's foothills,
Info : Mount Rinjani's foothills
Explore the foothills of the spectacular Mount Rinjani, taking in waterfalls, indigenous villages and breathtaking views of the volcano.
At over 3,500 metres above sea level Mount Rinjani is the third highest mountain in Indonesia. An active volcano, it dominates the Lombok skyline and provides a dramatic backdrop to the picturesque white sand beaches below. The forest clad mountain and surrounding hills hide remote Sasak villages, waterfalls and lakes and vantage points of the mountain, nearby Sumbawa island and Lombokâs southern plains. This tour will take you around the mountain to experience this landscape and its people.
Starting from your hotel, you will be driven along Lombokâs remote northern coastline, travelling through and over headlands and valleys with stunning coastal views. You will stop at the Sasak village of Segenter on the north slope of Mount Rinjani, where you will be able to observe and experience the traditional way of life. After a walk amongst the forest clad hills you will have a chance to stop and bathe under a waterfall. After lunch in a local restaurant you will travel to Sembalun and one of the best vantage points of Mount Rinjani. You will have the chance to walk amongst these lush and fertile hills 1000m above sea level, before heading back down the eastern slope of the mountain with views over southern Lombok and nearby Sumbawa Island. You will drive down via various vantage points and local villages before re-joining the main road to Mataram and returning to your hotel.

Six great and amazingly different hotels - we would happily recommend any of them. We had three excellent guides as well. And we lost track of the number of "Wow" moments. In addition to the obvious, including Paramban, Borobodur and Bromo, we would add our tour of the markets + rickshaw ride in Malang, and having coffee with Mr Rai at the Agung Rai Gallery in Bali. Our guide in Bali, Otok (?) was excellent at explaining local culture, and we left an offering at his family shrine.
