The small island of Lombok is dominated by the spectacular Mount Rinjani (3726m), Indonesia's second highest volcano, semi active and held in awe by the islanders who regularly ascend the steep trail to the crater rim. We follow in their footsteps completing an introductory trek and wandering the crater to appreciate the bright emerald green waters of Lake Segara Anak. We then travel by boat to the tranquil Gili Islands where we can indulge in some snorkelling or just relax on its beautiful beaches. We complete this exciting journey with a fascinating cultural tour on Lombok including the traditional weaving in Sukarara, the Pura Kalasa temple in Narmada, Mataram and the beautiful beach at Tanjung Aan.

We descend through thick tropical forests rich in flora and bird and butterfly life. On the descent, if lucky, you may spot the rare black monkey, known locally as lutung.
