Lombok it's include to the West-Nusa tenggara province.

Even there, the people has a same line culture with Bali.


The Wallace Line,

named after the 19th century naturalist,

Alfred Russell Wallace,

marks a point of transition between

the flora and fauna of

Western and Eastern Indonesia

and acts as the western boundary

of West Nusa Tenggara,

which includes

the islands of Lombok and Sumbawa.

Lombok is noticeably

different to its close neighbour,


Even there Lombok and Bali

has the same line on the Culture.


The islands of East Nusa Tenggara

have been shaped by the power and force of

an enormous chain of mountains and volcanoes

which begins in the north of Sumatera and stretches east across Java.

The province consists of over 550 islands but is dominated by the three main islands of Flores, Sumba, and Timor.

Occupying a unique position at the junction of

Australian and Asian submarine ridges marked by

the Wallace Line,

it is one the world's most dynamic and exotic marine environments

with nearly every species of coral and tropical fish represented.

The arid landscape of Eastern and Southeastern Nusa Tenggara is

the result of hot,

dry winds blasting in from the Australian continent.

In fact, many coastal areas experience not a drop of rainfall during most of the year.
