East of Bali, and the first island of the Nusa Tenggara archipelago, Lombok is rugged and green and dominated by the 3727 metre, semi-active Rinjani - one of Indonesia's highest volcanoes. The smaller islands off Lombok are called Gilis, and are known for their white sand beaches and diving. The most popular Gilis are Trawangan, Air, and Meno, off the north west coast.
