Gunung Baru Jari 2376m asl (New Volcano Mountain)
Gunung Baru is the name of the new volcano which emergedin the center of Segara Anak Lake. People believe that Gunung Baru is the navel of Mount Rinjani That is why if Gunung Baru erupted it will not harm to the people of Lombok unless the eruption is from the Peak of Mt. Rinjani. Some people said that the 1994 Gunung Baru eruption was caused by siprits who were building something because the stones that erupted were arranged in an orderly and attractive way at the foot of New Volcano Mountain

The Lake Segara Anak with a lake are covers an of ​​1,100 ha with a depth of 230 meters, the caldera also contains hot springs Sasak tribe and Hindu people assume the lake and the mount are sacred and some religious activities are occasionally done in the two areas

Segara Anak Lake (2000m asl) holds various mysteries and invisible power.
People feel content to stay a long time in this place because of the large community of mysterious spirits which live arround the lake.The local people believe that if the lake looks wide when seen at a distance it is a sign they will live to an old age or if the lake seems narrow it is a sign of a short age. So in order not to be pessimistic, people quickly purify themselves by lifting up their spirits and calm soul and look at the lake contentedly. In the area of the lake it is forbidden to have sexual intercourse, to complain or say dirty things. we must be patient when facing problems

Caves (Goa Susu)

The people with unclean and envious mind will have difficulty entering Susu cave which has a narrow entrance, but people with noble and pure mind will easily enter the cave. Inside the cave water drips from the tip of a stone which looks like a nipple, so people say the water in Goa Susu tastes different. Inside Goa Susu is hot and there is a lot of smoke which looks like cooking steam so people call this Mengukus (hot house) and sometimes people call it Rontgen (X-Ray).

Healing Hot Springs Aiq Kalak means hot water and it is used to cure various deseases. One of the hot springs is named Pangkereman Jembangan which is meant a place for dipping. The water which spurts out of the spring is very hot. Weapons such as keris, swords, big knives, and lances are dipped in the spring to testtheir magic power. If the weapon become sticky it means that the weapon is bad and has no magical power. However if the weapon remain unchanged it means that the weapon has supernatural power and the power and the strength will be increased

The People also use the hotspring to make medicine from coconut cream. After dipping a bottle of coconut cream in the hot spring if the liquid becomes clear oily it can be used a smedicinal oil, Then the medicinaloil is used for good things and is called Siu Satus Tunggal or in Bayan language Siu Satunggal which means that it can be used to cure a thousand kinds of desease
