Bali & Lombok travel guide

Bali & Lombok - Lombok (PDF Chapter)

16th Edition Jul 2017

This is the Lombok chapter from Lonely Planet’s Bali & Lombok guidebook.

Blessed with exquisite white-sand beaches, epic surf, a lush forested interior, and hiking trails through tobacco and rice fields, Lombok is fully loaded with equitorial allure. Mighty Gunung Rinjani, Indonesia’s second-highest volcano, comes with hot springs and dazzling crater lake.

If you’re going to the Gilis, a Lombok stopover is a must. It’s easy to get around the Lombok–Gilis–Bali triangle.

When to Go

Lombok is hot, sticky and tropical, with a marked rainy season (roughly late October and April). Climbing Gunung Rinjani can be more difficult than usual at this time.

The driest months coincide with the peak tourist period in July and August. You’ll need to balance crowds versus ideal weather.

The rainy season offers an excellent time to catch a local festival, such as the spectacular rice-throwing event called Perang Topat (held at Pura Lingsar in November or December), Pere-sean stick-fighting competitions (in December) or the Narmada buffalo races (in April).
