volcanic soil to grow rice. The terraced landscape conjours images of
Sasak life over the millenia. Explore vibrant green rice fields where
villagers have lived and worked for centuries. An ancient irrigation
system nourishes Lombok's most important crop. From June to August there

can sample fresh fruit and local produce. From there we travel to Nyiurbaya

weaving method. This is where your stroll thru the surrounding rice fields
will begin. Discover the rich, lush country side and watch villagers work
the fields before lunch at a traditional Warung
