Tetebatu Ricefield Walks
Tetebatu is a lovely mountain village, 700m above sea level on the south slopes of Mount Rinjani, in East Lombok. It boasts breathtaking views of beautiful, rural scenery; friendly, welcoming villagers and its fresh, cooler climate is refreshing. When we arrive in Tetebatu, we head out on a rice-field walk with a local guide to see gorgeous rice paddies, tobacco fields and to explore the small neighbouring villages and find out about the daily life of the indigenous Sasak mountain people. By arrangement, we can continue along other great trails which lead us up to the stunning Jeruk Manis Waterfalls. After our walk, we return to Wisma Soejono for a delicious lunch. In the afternoon we travel to the colourful fruit and pineapple market of Masbagik and then visit Pringgasela village to see how the fabulous ‘tenun’ cloth, which the village is famous for, is woven.
