View of low tide and sunset at Gili T (small islands off Lombok) the last stop in Lombok. The shores are so shallow that when tide is low it can be 1/2 a Km away! At night you'll see hundreds of lights on the ocean from fishermen out in their boats.
View of the lake from our camping spot. Locals hike down here
all the time to go fishing for a day or 2.This water fall is coming from the lake... if you look in the bottom right corner you'll see the hot springs that we relaxed in. The hot water was coming from inside the rock and the pools were built by locals. They were pretty clean and didn't have that typical sulfur smell. Needless to stay they did little to ease our pain/soreness despite the local belief that they have healing power. I still don't know how I had the leg strength to hike 8 hours out of there the following day... maybe they do have power ; )
On the second day of the trek we hit the rim of the active volcano which last erupted 100 years ago and now a lake inside thousands of feet deep. It took my breath away it was so beautiful. This picture hardly does it justice. The second volcano you see steaming inside formed in 1994 and a third smaller one is beginning just below that.
Mount Rinjani Trek
This is our favorite beach break for surfing - while you can't see in the pic I just finished surfing a massive wave!! haha, no this is actually a great beginner beach about a 45 min scooter ride from where we stayed. We actually hit some nice waves here, good size for us. (and bigger then this white water I swear!)
