Lombok is an island located in West Nusa Tenggara province, Indonesia. It forms part of a chain of the Lesser Sunda Islands, with the Lombok Strait separating it from Bali to the west and the Alas Strait and Sumbawa to the east. The provincial capital and largest city on the island is Mataram. It is surrounded by a number of smaller islands locally called Gili. Beautiful beaches, enchanting waterfalls, large, looming volcano of Mount Rinjani, combined with relatively few tourists make Lombok a small tropical haven.
