Lombok, Indonesia on 24/12/17 to 30/12/17

Hi All,
I had planned a getaway trip with my wife to Lombok during the Christmas Season . But we are no sure how is the situation affected by the Valcano incident at Bali. Can anyone tell us that current situation at Lombok are all back to normal ?

TQ

The volcano is still active and might erupt again at any time. If it does, Lombok will be as affected as Bali.

Be aware that December is rainy season in Bali and Lombok. I wouldn't let that stop me from boing, but be prepared for thunderstorms every afternoon.

Experts predict that Mt Agung will erupt again but no one knows when or on what level of intensity. Right now it’s calm and airports are mostly operating normally.

It unlikely that an eruption would affect your time in Lombok. However there’s a possibility of flight delay so you need to factor that into your decision. Generally if Lombok airport is closed due to ash clouds, Bali airport will be open and vice versa.
