Panoramic pictures from Lombok Island

Our virtual tour continues to the Indonesia Lombok Island. Lombok island belongs to the Lesser Sunda Islands. If someone does not know where they are able to clarify that these are small areas arranged next to each other volcanic islands from east to west, which are north of Australia.

Interesting is that the beauty of Lombok Island is the same as in Bali, but the lack of advertising and foreign investment in the sphere of tourism make this place unknown. To the east is the neighboring island of Sumbawa, which is separate from the Strait Alas. On an area of 4514 square kilometers live more than 3 million people, which is a lot for this area.

The largest city is Mataram, which is located in the eastern part of Lombok Island. Lack of drinking water on the island is a serious problem that in 2010 led to serious problems in the population. Bookmark and Share

Natural attractions in Lombok Island

The most important tourist attraction on Lombok Island is Mount Rinjani. Located in the northern part of the island in National Park Gunung Rinjani.

Mount Rinjani rises to a height of 3726 m, and below it is the volcanic lake Segara Anak. Statistics can specify that the volcano Rinjani is the second largest volcano in Indonesia.

The last eruption was in 2010. What is the difference between Lombok Island and Bali. First in best conditions for surfing, then we can add lush equatorial jungle through which pass trails and white sandy beaches in the east. Most important for tourism are Gili Islands.

These are three islands in the northwest of Lombok Island (Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air). On each of the islands have resorts mostly composed of one-storey houses with thatched roofs, and between them there is a small pool and restaurant.

Usually tourists have fun at the nearby coral reefs, dive and enjoy the marine life. Road transport is prohibited on Gili Islands, but the problem of criminality and drugs is not solved. For lovers of waterfalls offer natural destination waterfall Tiu Kelep.

Located in the northern part of the island near the village of Senaru. There are well-made path to the waterfall, but as the gorge to the waterfall is very close, it is quite difficult to make panoramic photos of a waterfall Tiu Kelep, unless you have a Dron. If you are able and have the time necessary, you can go to Bali island, where you expect many beautiful places to visit.
