Tetebatu : This small town is about 2km from the southern boundary of Mount Rinjani National Park. It is a quaint and scenic rural area some 400-500 metres above see level, and gives visitors the chance to experience real, traditional village life in Lombok. This is as far removed from drunken beer boy scene in Senggigi as you could possibly imagine.
The Tetebatu area is perhaps best known for for its cultural attractions. Traditional Sasak handicraft artisans are spread throughout the villages in this area and products include black terracotta and basketry. The nearby town of Kotaraja is the best known location in Lombok to witness traditional Sasak stick fighting and the village has a long tradition of producing forged blacksmith tools.
WHAT YOU WILL SEE :
* Air Terjun Jukut. These falls are not as spectacular as those in the north of the national park around Senaru, but still very much worth the effort to see. You will need a guide to find Jukut and your hotel will certainly help with this. Expect to pay about Rp 100,000-150,000. The falls are reached via a really pleasant two hour walk from Tetebatu through charming rice paddies. Less recommended is to drive to the main car park, from where the falls are 2km down a well trodden walking track. Local Sasak lore has it that the waters here are a cure for baldness. Rp 50,000.
* Taman Wisata Tetebatu (Tetebatu Monkey Forest). This park is a gentle 4km walk north of the town. Expect lots of macaques and some pleasant enough scenery and waterfalls. Again, ask at your hotel about a guide, and avoid any offers of motorised transport.
* Loyok Village is about 5km south of Tetebatu and is famous for the local form of stick fighting – peresehan. Regular events are held in which young Sasak men ceremonially fight each other with a rattan stick and a buffalo skin shield. Enquire locally in Tetebatu to see if any fights are scheduled.
