Today you have a brisk but fun and educational walk ahead. One of the female guides from the village who has been trained by a New Zealand project is ready to take you and talk about everyday life in the villages on the north flank of the Rinjani.

Day 6 Snorkelling and to the southern flank of the volcano, Tetebatu

After a simple breakfast in the guesthouse, go to the beach and board a wooden motor boat. Your captain sails in just over half an hour to one of the Gili's (Gili is the Lombok name of an island) off the coast. Everything here is simple and the snorkeling unique. Enjoy the blue coral, which you hardly see in Indonesia. You will have until after lunch (packed lunch from the guesthouse) to swim, snorkel and relax before sailing back to the 'mainland' of Lombok.

Ice cold but very refreshing after the fatigues. After lunch you drive via Mataram to Narmada. Here you will visit the summer palace of Ngurah Asem, the king of Karangasem (Bali), built in 1727. Your driver will then drive you to the harbor town of Bangsal where you will board a small winged praw. This will take you to Gili Meno in just 45 minutes just off the coast of Lombok. This is really a coral island from an advertising brochure: snow-white beaches overgrown with palm trees and an azure blue sea. Gili Meno is by far the quietest of the three Gili islands. The coral reef starts just off the coast so all you have to do is step into the sea from the hotel. The rest of the days are free for snorkeling, swimming and sunbathing! 3 nights at Gili Meno.

Praya

Praya

Praya is the capital of West Lombok. Since 2011, the international airport Praya (LOP) has been established here. Praya International Airport has several daily flights to Bali, Jakarta and other Indonesian cities and several times a week to international destinations such as Singapore.

Senggigi

Senggigi

Senggigi is Lombok's best-equipped coastal town.

The beach just south of Senggigi is great for swimming and not far from the beach is a reef where you can snorkel. Senggigi has a pleasant center with delicious restaurants and nice shops.

Most public transport is done with the Cidomo (horse and carriage), also known as the Mercedes Lombok.
From Senggigi you can take day trips to the Gili islands, the capital Mataram, a day trip to the north or south flank of the Rinjani volcano or to the unspoilt interior.

Favourite restaurants

From the luxury Spice you have a beautiful sea view. The restaurant serves many fusion dishes, but also the traditional saté pusut ayam (which is on the menu here as sate ayam lilit). Asmara has more traditional Sasak dishes. If you take the Sasak Rice Table you will taste the whole island.

Senaru

Senaru

Senaru is a tiny mountain village on the northern flank of the Rinjani volcano. It is also the end of our three-day Rinjani expedition.
Walking in and around Senaru is beautiful. The walk that we have included in our Pure Lombok tour has a mix of nature, traditional Sasak villages, rice fields and a waterfall.
Pondok Senaru is a simple hotel, with typical non-western conveniences: In our bungalow the toilet roll hung at a height of 2 meters and the mirror above the sink was also made at a height for basketball players. You can expect more luxury in the Rinjani lodge.

Labuan Pandan

Labuan Pandan

This small fishing village in the northeast of Lombok is the base for a visit to the eastern Gili's Lawang, Sulat, Pentangan and especially Gili Pasaran and Lampu, where it is great snorkeling.

Tetebatu

Tetebatu


The mountain village of Tetebatu is located on the southern flank of the Rinjani volcano. Many local cottage industries can be visited in the area. In the village of Loyok, wicker baskets are woven, baked in Masabagik pots and woven in Pringgasela ikat rugs.

Gili Air

Gili Air

Gili Air is the closest of the three Gili islands to the mainland of Lombok. By boat you can sail from Lombok to the island in about 20 minutes. If you come from Bali, you will sail in about an hour and a half first to Gili Trawangan and then on to Gili Air.

As on the other Gili's, diving and snorkeling are the favorite pastimes. There are plenty of PADI certified dive schools to learn to scuba dive or book dive trips. Chilling is of course also a popular activity. At the beach, swimming pool or at one of the many lounges and beach clubs.

There is not yet a large choice of hotels on Gili Air, but that has the advantage that the island is not yet overrun by mass tourism. The Mola-Mola resort on the sunrise side of the island is our favorite (Deluxe suite is recommended). Divers with a limited budget go into the sea with the Two Fish dive center in Villa Karang, the divers with a sufficient budget in the Oceans 5 Dive resort (Pool or Garden bungalow).

Things to see

Different shops, excursion offices and restaurants.
At the excursion offices you could for example rent a bike to discover the island, book a day tour to Lombok or book a snorkelling or diving excursion.
A trip with a Cidomo (horse-drawn carriage) around the island is also quite an experience, There are fixed tariffs which are indicated on the board at the harbour.
In about one hour and a half you can walk around the island, if you go by bike it’s sometimes not so easy to ride through the sand.
If you want to go Island hopping you can easily rent a small charter boat to bypass the low frequency of the Public boat.

Good to know

On none of the Gili islands are motor vehicles, everything is done on foot, by bike or by Cidomo.
If you want to go into the sea, be careful. There are sharp little stones and pieces of coral in the shallow water and you have to walk a bit to reach deeper water.
There is only 1 ATM on the island, frequent electricity failures and often very bad Wifi coverage.
There’s no fresh water for swimming pools and bathrooms on the island. There’s only brackish water.
