Indonesia has a lot to offer to travellers who visit the island with a hope of experiencing something exciting and thrilling. It is a land with huge potential for adventures centred on its pristine beaches, quasi-active volcanoes etc.
Gili Islands, Lombok

Kelimutu Lake, Nusa Tenggara Timur
One of the most visited spots in Indonesia, Kelimutu is a collective term given to three crater lakes in three different colours – red, blue and white.

Visitors can enjoy trekking while exploring the wonders of the surrounding and taking in the beauty of the landscape. Most tourists visit here to enjoy the fabulous sunsets and sunrises.
