BUKIT SELONG SUNRISE VIEWPOINT – LOMBOK

Bukit Selong Sunrise Viewpoint is one of my favorite locations in Lombok! Here is an easy guide for all you need to know including how to get there and what to expect.

 

Have you got travel insurance for Lombok? I know that nobody likes to talk about this stuff but accidents happen all the time and having World Nomads Travel Insurance can save you thousands of dollars if something goes wrong. 

 

HOW TO GET TO BUKIT SELONG

Bukit Selong is in the North West region of Lombok. If you are arriving in Lombok via Bangsal Harbour in Lombok’s North, it is very easy to find a private taxi or a motorbike to rent at the port.

Expect to pay around 700,000 rupiah for a driver for the day. You can also rent motorbikes/scooters in Bangsal for approximately 60,000 rupiah per day.

The distance from Bangsal Harbour to Bukit Selong is 80km and it is approximately a 2.5 hours drive.

THE WAY I TRAVELED TO BUKIT SELONG

My friends and I visited Bukit Selong as we made our way from the north of Lombok to the south. We had just finished a 3-day hike to the summit of Mount Rinjani and were staying in Senaru, a village in North Lombok.

The owner of our homestay at Blue Mountain Cottage organised a private taxi and driver to take my friends and I from Senaru to the Bukit Selong Viewpoint.

We managed to get the price of the van and driver for 700,000 rupiah to drive us all the way from the north of Lombok to South Lombok, stopping at Bukit Selong on the way through.

Our driver picked us up at 4am and the five of us piled into the minivan for what was to be a 1-hour drive from Senaru to the Bukit Selong sunrise viewpoint.

The distance from Bangsal Harbour to Bukit Selong is 80km and it is approximately a 2.5 hours drive.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT BUKIT SELONG LOMBOK

It is a short 2-minute walk from the carpark to the Bukit Selong viewpoint. The sound of the morning roosters and the prayers from the mosques fill the air.

There are two viewpoints that overlook the fields at Bukit Selong – one is a dirt mound at a lower level and the other is further up the hill where you’ll see a handcrafted wooden star on bamboo stilts that makes for a great photo.

Continue the walk over to the other side of the hill, there is a cool little treehouse structure with a rickety boardwalk that leads out over the edge. Around every corner is a new epic landscape waiting to be discovered!
