Travling on LombokHello!
I'm looking for some advice for traveling in Lombok.
The plan is to spend there 4 nights. 2 nights in Senaru for some hiking and 2 nights south in Kuta for relaxing and then head back to Bali.
Looking at the distances, how long would it take to get from Senaru to Kuta in Lombok? It might take a while so maybe 4 days won't be very reasonable? I dont want this trip to be too much a hassle, but if getting around on Lombok can be tricky, then hassle might be unavoidable?
And appx. how long does a boat from Padangbai go to Lombok?
Thank you! Any information might be helpful as I can't imagine what it would be like.

1From Padangbai to Lembar in Lombok with the ferry it takes approx 4-5 hours. The fast boat to Senggigi takes 1 1/2 hour.
From Lembar to Senaru , 2 1/2 - 3 hours. From Senggigi to Senaru 1 1/2 - 2 hours
From Senaru to Kuta 3 1/2 - 4 hours.
All above is by car, either taxi or hired car with driver.
If you fly over it's only a 1/2 hour ride from the airport to Kuta. From Kuta you can arrange transport to Senaru. I can give you name and contact details for a driver as well as for good cheap accomodation in Kuta.
It is possible to use public transport, Bemo, but it will eat up most of your time just for travelling. Also possible to use Perama Tours for bus-boat-bus transport. www.permatours.com
The best options is going with the fast boat or to fly.

If you book a Rinjani trek, the transport from your hotel on Lombok / harbour / airport and the transport to your next destination after the trek is normally included. After coming back from the mountain in the early afternoon, you can go to Kuta or you should also get the fast boat to Bali in the afternoon, if you travel in high season.
