Snorkelling in Sumbawa

Posted by somtam2000 on 9/6/2016 at 21:22

On my recent trip through Sumbawa I didn't have the time to do any diving, but I did manage to fit in some snorkelling research and here is a quick wrap.

Cleaning up Indonesia's national parks

From this week's soapbox. Don't get our weekly newsletter? Sign up here. I'm just back from climbing one of the tallest volcanoes in Indonesia, spectacular Gunung Rinjani. We'll have a full write-up on Travelfish this week (in the meantime you can see some happy snaps here). The trek took three friends and I three days. We started in Sembalun Lawang and finishing in Senaru, with one night spend camping on the crater rim, and the other lakeside within the crater. It is a truly breathtaking volc ...

Climbing Rinjani on Lombok Indonesia. In photos

Posted by somtam2000 on 9/5/2016 at 22:15

Over the last few days I did a three day two night climb of Gunung Rinjani on Lombok with some friends from Jakarta, and here are a few pics to get your feet itching (or not!) While we'll have a full trip report on Travelfish next week (I only got home last night) my one piece of advice is: Don't do a three day two night trek unless you are in extremely good shape. Do either the one night "summit only" trek or, if you want to see the lake and hotsprings, definitely do the three nig ...
