Lombok is often an overlooked island in many tourists’ itineraries, even though the Lombok tour is an activity that is a pity to miss because this island is an Indonesian paradise that is no less beautiful than Bali.
Lombok has lush green forests, towering waterfalls, epic views over the rice fields, and beaches with the best waves for surfing. If you are an adventurous type of person, then you should explore this beautiful island of Lombok.
4 Fun Activities in Lombok
- Climbing Mount Rinjani
Climbing Rinjani is one of the exciting tourist activities to try. The trip to Rinjani can take 2 or 3 days, with trekking for 7 to 8 hours a day. Although this mountain is tough to climb, a two-day trip will take you to the top of the rim of the crater with epic and stunning views. During the hike to the top, spend your time by enjoying the lakes and hot springs at Rinjani.
- Playing at Sendang Gile Waterfall
Waterfalls are some of the best Lombok attractions to explore. One of the waterfalls in Lombok that is very nice to explore is Sendang Gile. Its towering location gives you stunning natural views. The locals will help you if you are having a hard time finding this waterfall from the entrance. The entrance fee to the Sendang Gile waterfall is only 10,000 IDR including the entrance fee to the Tiu Kelep waterfall.
- Visiting Tiu Kelep Waterfall
Close to Sendang Gile, Tiu Kelep Waterfall is relatively easy to reach on foot because it is easily accessible. Tiu Kelep is a waterfall that is no less impressive than Sendang Gile, and you must explore it too. A path at the bottom of the stairs makes it easy for you to get to Tiu Kelep from Sendang Gile. If you like to play in the water or swim, Tiu Kelep is very safe to use as a bathing place.
- Watching the Sunset on Penggabungan Hills
For those who want to watch the beautiful sunset in Lombok, visit Penggabungan Hill. Its location on a hill makes it the best place to watch the sunset. To climb Penggabungan Hill, you only need less than 10 minutes. The location of Penggabungan Hill is also right beside Tanjung Aan beach, so you can explore these two tours on the same day because they can be reached in just 20 minutes by motorbike.
