Welcome to Senaru


Senaru derives its name from sinaru, which means light. As you ascend the hill towards the sky and clouds, you'll see just why this makes sense.

Senaru was particularly hard hit by a string of high magnitude earthquakes that struck Lombok between July and August 2018. The recuperation process was expected to last several years and returning tourists will be a vital part of it, putting trekking guides back to work and funnelling much needed cash into the rebuilding of area homes.
