Sesaot forest is a protected forest area about 5 km to the north of Suranadi Park or 25 km from the city of Mataram which in certain days is visited by many people of Lombok to enjoy the atmosphere of the forests and cold mountain water sources.
The air temperature here is cold because it is located below the foothills adjacent to Mount Rinjani in this area there are several houses and rambutan gardens that are very fertile too, there is a pool where you maintain advertisements in the Sesaot forest tourist area, there are tarpaulin huts that are are canned drink traders and some kind of bread.

Besides that, there is also a typical culinary sale of Lombok, namely “Bulayak” satay which is a snack of satay which is packaged like a stick but not cone coated with palm sugar so it is not too hard when weaving or not like coconut palm will be harder when weaved because Lontong or so-called bulayak is spun smaller, because the people here are still as flowing as the Narmada community.
At present the Sesaot forest has become increasingly crowded with visitors because it has been greatly renovated and specifically at this location has been packaged into a “Aik Nyet” tourist park, which means that the newly built Air Dingin tourism park began in 2015 by the West Lombok district government, the city community Mataram also came to greet him.
The infrastructure has been laid out beforehand, it had to cross a small river, but now a concrete-constructed bridge has been built and given the security of this bridge it is only for people to cross while the motorbike will not be able to this location because this location is below the cliff but not high.
Besides that, the available infrastructure has already been built by many gazebos made of concrete construction on the edge of a rocky river which is drained with very clean water but the color is a little whitish, because this water comes out from the cracks of mountain rocks.
The old nuance has changed a lot, which used to be only a protected forest area, but now there are many people living in freeing tens of hectares of forest area, the air temperature is not as it used to be when it was cold now, a little hot, only at the Aik Nyet tourist park as before, also now the empowerment of local communities already exists with the management of the Aik Nyet tourism park.
The community can sell culinary on location and every vehicle that enters must park and pay Rp 2,000 / motorcycle and for cars to be charged a parking fee of Rp 5,000 not only culinary Bulayak here there are some who sell light snacks, bottled drinks, local coffee.
Many traders who sell their produce are mainly rambutan because in this location it is very fertile with rambutan, it is also the result of Sesaot forest fruit, namely durian, but I do not excel for durian here because several times I bought it turned out to be less sweet and the bones were large.
After seeing its progress continuously through posting on Facebook Sesaot forest it turns out that it stores many beautiful objects to display as if there were some waterfall slides that were not too high decorated with clear puddles below which looked beautiful for photography.
There is also a large rock from the top of the waterfall that is very good for photography objects towards the bottom of the waterfall, and not far from this location there is a mosque that resembles a Chinese Buddhist temple painted with contrasting red characters prepared for visitors to the want to pray.
In this location, the dominant local tourists from the city visit this location. They rejoice in bare-chested baths while women bathe in covered clothes, which means wearing shorts and T-shirts because this is a pattern from the people of Lombok, who have never bathed in a bikini. See, there are a few showerheads around for those who want to sort their backs with water slides.
