Origins of Northwest Lombok
Visit Gunung Sari Traditional Market, located uphill on Northwest Lombok. Wander around to see locals and variety of vegetables, spices, fruits, local nibbles and accessories. Afterwards, guests will be driven downhill, passing through the village proper, which specialize in bamboo craft. Guests will stop at Lingsar Temple; probably the only place where 3 religions come to pray together in Lombok. A short tour around the temple complex will end with a cidomo (traditional horse cart ride) to visit Traditional House of Karang Bayan, rich of cultural history. Next is the village of Karang Temu, where guests will try creating lepe'an or traditional coaster from ketak branches. Lunch will then be served by the picturesque river near the village.
