This fantastic tour takes in the majesty of the mountains as we traverse Lombok from west to east and around the top to return. Out to the east, we visit Pringgasela, a village famous for its skilled ‘back-strap loom’ weavers producing ‘tenunan’ - ‘ikat’ and ‘songket’ textiles. We continue our journey by climbing high into the mountains to the cool village of Sapit to take in the breathtaking views of the south and east. Following the steep road northwards, we pass through the eastern borders of Rinjani National Park up to the historic village of Sembalun, on the shoulder of Mt Rinjani. This is the ‘vegetable basket’ of Lombok, set in a pretty valley of patchwork fields, coffee and cacao trees, chilli and strawberry plantations and orchids, all surrounded by soaring mountains. We drive on to Senaru, where we stop to see Sendang Gile Waterfall plummeting down the slopes of Mt Rinjani. On our return, along the amazing coastal road running down the west coast, we take a break at Nipah and Malimbu viewpoints to enjoy stunning sunset views of Bali and the ‘Gilis’ over the Lombok Strait.
