from village trekking to wave surfing.
Our guides can take you to remote traditional villages that can only be accessed by trekking. The area offers fabulous beaches and beautiful plains for horse riding.

According to Sumbanese men , chewing betel nuts is a full time activity! If you want to try, Mr. Ali is an usual consommateur and will teach you the right dose of each ingredient to get a nice taste. You need a kind of green asparagus which lives as a parasite creeper on trees, a nut from a special palm tree and lime, all having symbolic meaning. Offering "sirih pinang" when you enter a village will be the key to introduction.
