Lombok is a hidden gem of Indonesia, less visited than its neighbouring island Bali with next to no tourist crowds, so you can enjoy an authentic travel experience here. The gorgeous, laid-back island offers beautiful beaches, colourful marine species, a melting pot of cultures, natural wonders, year-round festivals, and incredible surfing opportunities, to name a few. Brightsun Travel offers great value luxury holidays to Lombok, allowing you to experience all of this and more.
Trekking is a popular activity in Lombok; Gunung Rinjani, the second-highest volcano in Indonesia dominates the island with scenic slopes amidst tropical settings, offering various trekking options. The stunning Segara Anak crater lake is located at the volcano’s summit. You can also trek to the Tiu Kelep Waterfall in Lombok which is surrounded by tropical jungle, flora and fauna and has a natural pool at its base - perfect for a refreshing dip after a hike in the heat.
Lombok is a cultural island with lots of traditional villages, many of which are home to the native Sasak tribe. Tetebatu Village is worth exploring; it’s set amongst forests and rice paddies, similar to Ubud in Bali and has been inhabited by the Sasak for a long period of time, so is an ideal place to learn about this traditional culture and witness locals conducting daily activities. Finally, Lombok’s daytrip opportunities are immense; the Gili Islands are a popular daytrip option which boast some impressive diving and snorkelling sites.
