Challenge yourself with a 2 day hike to the Mount Rinjani.
The incomparable appearance of the volcano Rinjani with the surrounding rice fields make Lombok a sensational destination for trekking, climbing and cycling.

But not only the volcano itself is fascinating: the mesmerizing surroundings, stretching from jungle to heath and rocks, and the view to Bali, Sumbawa and the Gili Islands, make this hiking trip unforgettable. The challenge of climbing the mount Rinjani takes around 2 days to the top and one day back. There are different entrances to the Rinjani national park and various options can be booked according to your wishes and fitness. The hiking season to climb the mount Rinjani is between April and September.
Enter the magical world of the Lombok Waterfalls.
Each of the several waterfalls in Lombok is unique and worth visiting. Head to Senaru in the North of Lombok to enjoy the waterfalls Tiu Kelep and Sendang Gile, the most famous waterfalls of Lombok. The Aik Berik village at the southern foothills of the Rinjani is the gateway to Lombok’s most beautiful waterfalls: Benang Stokel and Benang Kelambu. The waterfall Benang Stokel on is one of the highest in Lombok and perfect for a natural neck and shoulder massage. The water comes directly from the Mount Rinjani and is therefore clean, cool and fresh. The pool underneath it is ideal for a refreshing swim. A few kilometers further is the Benang Kelambu waterfall that flows through a curtain of plants which is were its name comes from. It is said that once a princess of Lombok came to that waterfall on her horse to recover. Since then the Benang Kelambu waterfall is famous for its healing power. Take a dip by yourself and feel the magic of this beautiful place on earth. The tour to the waterfalls can be a bit challenging but the environment compensates for the effort: banana and jackfruit trees, coffee and cacao beans, the spectacular mahogany forest and hauntingly beautiful orchids make the nature here a celebration for your senses. Listen to the sound of exotic birds and catch a glimpse of black macaque monkeys hiding in the treetops.
