People have lots of places to visit in Lombok, an island in Indonesia, My friend shared some more tips here. They are as follows. Mount Rinjani is one of the highlights of Lombok is a hike up to Mount Rinjani. If you are visiting Lombok, you can’t skip this! Mt Rinjani is the second biggest volcanic peak in the whole of Indonesia. It has a lake called Segara Anak, which is actually a lake formed in a crater. The lake also has a hot water spring, formed naturally. Rinjani is sacred for both the local people (Sasaks) and the Hindus of the region. Senggigi beach is another destination you wouldn’t want to miss; it is a tourist hub, and has a beautiful beach, coconut trees swaying in the background and green jungles as the setting. The Senggigi Beach is a popular destination for those who love surfing. A majority of the hotels in Lombok are located here.
