// Nusa Tenggara Barat

West Nusa Tenggara is chiefly comprised of the islands of Lombok and Sumbawa. It lies between the provinces of Bali and East Nusa Tenggara. The provincial capital is Mataram (in Lombok) and a new international airport was opened in 2012 in the southern part of Lombok.

The province is home to the magnificent Mount Rinjani National Park and the enormous volcanic crater of Tambora. Sangeang is a large volcanic island and the remaining peaks are all infrequently hiked forested mountains in Sumbawa.
