Invisible biogeographical border between the fauna of the Indo-Malaysian and Australian eco-regions, portal of the Sunda Islands, Lombok shows throughout a surprising environment.Vast and still little frequented, green up north and almost dry down south, Lombok inspires souls more adventuresses. Land of discoveries where rises the Mount Rinjani peaking in 3 726 meters, it gives way to the improvisation and the adventure in a welcoming nature which does not stop enchanting.Travelers are overjoyed by the island. Accessible and scheming, its rough looking is only appearances and reveals a peaceful lifestyle to the well known rhythm of islands and sun.

From fishermen's villages to villages lost in valleys, Lombok, between ' land and sea ', as meetings go by, marks our spirits and does not leave us unmoved. A day on the sides of the volcano, crossing plantations of coffee, tobacco and cocoa.Another day walking on the white sand of the azure bays of the South.Yesterday penetrating into a dense and wet rain forest cooling in the natural swimming pools of waterfalls. Tomorrow delighted by hot and turquoise waters of Indian Ocean. Later, time of an escapade, the Gili islands will reveal a hidden extravagance. Small atolls of the sea of Bali, in the fine sand and in the full of fish waters where sea turtles are frequent meetings, GiliMeno, Gili Air and GiliTrawangan has each a unique personality that answers different expectations.
