CLASSIC LOMBOK ROUNDTRIp
We begin by travelling up the west coast to see the fabulous views from Malimbu viewpoint, Nipah and other beautiful beaches which fringe the west coast. We then head inland, uphill through jungle, forest and stunning gorges to Pusuk Pass, with a stop to see monkeys in the Monkey Forest. From there we proceed to historic Suranadi, nestled in the cool foothills above the city. Suranadi is famous for its complex of three temples, built in the 16th century by a Javanese priest, which are the oldest and holiest Hindu temples in Lombok. As we head into town, there are many choices of cuisine available for lunch. Next we head on to see how tahu (tofu) is produced and visit a local high school to learn about traditional Sasak batik. From here, we drive to an area just north of Cakranegara to browse some of Lombok’s famous handicrafts and cultured pearls. On our return journey, we visit Pura Batu Bolong, a Balinese Hindu temple built on an outcrop of black volcanic rock, facing Bali across the Lombok strait.
