1. Climb Mount Rinjani
You will experience various terrains, from hot flat fields to dense rain forest and cold temperatures.
Getting to 2,700m is a feat in itself and you'll be greeted by beautiful views of the crater lake (Segara Anak), which is exceptional during sunset and sunrise. Concurring the peak would require extra mental and physical strength, and rewarded with fantastic views of Bali, Java and the Gili islands on a clear day.
2. Island hopping
Gili Trawangan: Largest of the 3 islands, its usually bustling with people and nightlife. Popular with the backpacking crowd, this island offers a lot in terms of nightlife and activities.
Gili Air: If you're looking for both a relaxing spot and some nightlife, this island has a good balance of both!
Gili Meno: Smallest of the islands and a honeymooners dream. Parties are definitely non-existant on the island but you can always take a long tail boat to Gili Trawangan next door (15-20minutes away). But for come quality time with your other half, this place is perfect. Plus it has some of the best snorkelling spots right by your doorstep.
3. Scuba diving
4. Surf in Kuta (Lombok)
5. Sample the local cuisine
Their Fish Satay accompanied by spicy peanut sauce is not to be missed together with the all famous Gado-Gado (blanched vegetables in peanuts sauce), and Ayam Bakar Taliwang (BBQ chicken covered in spices) to name a few.
