Island Chillies and Tobacco
- Full Day
In the morning, be picked up from the hotel and drive towards Tetebatu on the southern slopes of Rinjani National Park. Before setting off for the trek, learn how fried coffee is roasted the traditional way in a wok over the fire. Enjoy a glass of freshly brewed coffee and head across the rice fields, plantations and fruit gardens. Depending on the season, different crops are grown such as chilies, tobacco, and fruits like rambutan, jackfruit or durian and guavas. Farmers are busy with seeding, ploughing or harvesting and a trek through the fields and forests gives a great impression of the everyday life in rural communities in Lombok. Pass a monkey forest where, with a bit of luck, one can see primates jumping from tree to tree. Then, head to the scenic Tibu Topat Waterfall.

Continue by car to Tetebatu Village and enjoy lunch at local restaurant.

In the afternoon, continue to Loyok and meet a basket-making family for an introduction into the techniques of making bamboo thread and weaving of baskets, bags and boxes the traditional style. The family is a typical example of Lombok’s residents stemming from diverse backgrounds all over Indonesia. Try to produce some of the different patterns that are possible when weaving with bamboo thread.

Then, continue to a village where roof tiles are produced from clay and get familiar with the different steps of producing a tile, from bringing the clay to the right consistency to burning it in the impressive kilns that every homestead in the village has.

En route to the hotel, stop by at some of the many roadside markets and taste some tropical fruit of the season.

Return to the hotel in the late afternoon. (L)
