Looking for a Bali-like destination that is not Bali? Look no further than Lombok and the Gili Islands – the idyllic, untouched sister islands of Bali. Lombok is what you would image an unspoiled Bali to be before the advent of tourism boom. Lombok has thousand miles of unspoilt beaches, endless stretches of green rice paddies and lush mountainous landscape with cascading waterfalls. The Sasak – the indigenous people of Lombok are also incredibly hospitable and excited to share their culture with visitors, which is an enriching experience for someone who has never strayed beyond the hustle and bustle of Bali.

It has been a fulfilling trip from the start to the end. Ying has been very meticulous from the beginning; paying great attention to our dietary requirement, rooming arrangement etc. Thanks Abdul, our guide, for the encouraging gestures to keep us going especially during the summit push. Fond memories for years to come!

Thanks to our guide Arief for making my life so much bearable during the 3d2n trek. It was a tough trek especially for someone like me who’s not so fit but the scenery was really worth the sweat. Looking back it’s a trip well planned and executed. Thanks for making this happen.

We are very happy with the overall arrangement of everything from the choice of trekking company, the transportation and the accommodations. We were very well taken care of on the trek. The foods on our camping trip was really great. Beyond our expectation actually. =) Thanks you Bob for the patience to answer to all our queries and giving us advises that helps us greatly to planned out our extension stay after the climb. Will definitely join their other climbs or engage them to plan another trip again. =)
