A flight time of just over an hour from Yogyakarta and I am in Lombok. Lombok is an island in the eastern part of Indonesia, located between Bali and Sumbawa island, it has a population of around 3.5 million, of which approximately 90% are Muslim. Lombok has the second highest mountain in Indonesia, Gunung Rinjani, 3726 meters high. The island is very green and mountainous.
My hotel is situated on a hill and from my breakfast table I can see Mount Agung, an active volcano, on the island of Bali. I also have views of the lush hillside surrounding where I am staying. I arrived here two days ago and it has rained for almost the whole time.
The morning mist, dancing around the tree tops, in the brief respite from the rain.
Lombok has many beautiful beaches, however my guide books suggest that the Gili islands just off the coast of Lombok are worth a visit, this is the main reason I came to the island.
Finally I saw the sun set, this was taken from my balcony, previous evenings have been overcast due to the rain. Once the rain stops I plan a trip to the Gili Islands.
