Hiking The Tete Batu
Trails on Lombok
A full-day where some good walking shoes are essential; a leisurely hike around Tete Batu and Loyok
has all the ingredients in it when seeking peaceful villages surrounded by farmland,
a well-maintained park and religious landmarks and temples on Lombok.
WHY THIS TOUR?
Unspoilt regions of Lombok are more common than those regions where slightly more visitors can be found. The island’s inland provides a superb collection of hidden trails, green forests and tranquil villages that often have not been influenced by western civilization.
When such ideas are just what you want to add to your Indonesia experience, and what makes you want to visit Lombok especially, then this tour around Tete Batu and Loyok will fulfil your wishes from beginning to end.
08:00 - 17:00
Your guide and driver for the day will pick you up from your hotel on Lombok (selected regions/beaches only). We are certain that you wear some comfortable clothing and good walking shoes as part of this tour will include some hiking through and along Lombok’s still pristine landscape.
The towns of Tete Batu and Loyok are among the most tranquil villages around, and getting a taste of the laid-back atmosphere will be quickly felt. Your trekking guide for the day will venture into the local forest, where you may see black monkeys (called ‘Pitu’) lingering in the treetops. The area has some arid patches which make great agricultural land, ranging from mahogany trees to clove plantations. You may witness seeing hospitable residents working tirelessly in these plantations, only using traditional farming tools. Lunch will be included at a local restaurant.
Part of the tour includes a stop at the Lingsar Temple, a representation of harmonious living between Muslims and the Hindu. Indonesia always has been tolerant of accepting various religions that have to coincide together for generations. Also included is a stop at the Taman Narmada, an amazingly well-laid out park. Just 10 kilometres outside the centre of Mataram, Narmada always has been one with great spiritual significance as it has replicas of the Lake Segara Anak at Mount Rinjani, one of Lombok’s most recognizable landmarks.
We slowly follow our trail back to our car, bringing you back to your resort along either Senggigi & Mataram only. Expect to be back at your hotel at around 5 pm with wonderful memories and, hopefully, a memory card filled with photos.
