    The continent which means 'Chilli Pepper'

    Padi field nearby Pura Lingsar by ukirsari

    Favorite thing: I read the same perception about the meaning of Pulau Lombok, which is ... lombok means 'chilli'. But for myself, this island is beautiful indeed, doesn't 'taste hot' as chilli :) Coconut trees are waving meanwhile the white foams along the shorelines of the island appears continuosly. So lush and green and blue. I am proudly addressed Lombok as 'One of the Jewel in Indonesia Archipelago' :)

    Fondest memory: Tranquil and calm, trully different comparing Bali, which can be reached within 20 minutes from I Gusti Ngurah Rai Airport [DPS] to Selaparang Airport [AMI]. Or about 4 hours using ferry from Benoa [Bali] to Lembar [Lombok].

    Muslim,Hindu and other religions living in harmony

    Favorite thing: Population in Lombok is about 750,000 people in various religions. Muslim Sasak [the origin tribe of Lombok], Hindu Bali [Balinese] and several tribes like Mandar, Selayar and Bugis.

    Fondest memory: Visit the old city of Cakranegara, I found this place as "small Bali" in Lombok. Many centuries ago, King of Karangasem [rock and tamarind tree] reigned here. Meanwhile, Mataram [a.k.a Selaparang and Selapawit based on the book Negarakertagama] is the provincional city of Nusa Tenggara Barat and Ampenan is the port city of Lombok Strait [another one is Labuhan to direction Alas Strait in the east of the island].

    Mount Rinjani welcoming scenic route

    Mount Rinjani range by ukirsari

    Favorite thing: How beautiful Lombok can be described as simple words like this; a land which have mountain [sacred Mountain Rinjani], sea [Lombok and Alas Straits], padi fields and lake [Segara Anak Lake] in one package.

    Fondest memory: After landed at Selaparang Airport, you will welcomed by Mount Rinjani in front of you. This is 'only' the beginning, since you can see the beautiful beaches after.
    Mount Rinjani [3,745 m] is the one of the highest volcanic mountains in Indonesia mountaineous range.
