[Lombok] - Tanjung Ringgit and Cannon Cave

Tanjung Ringgit.

You can get to this hill by motorbike from Pink Beach.

A short bumpy ride, but it's totally worth to reach this unique and beautiful spot.
 The charm of natural scenery is so eyes' feasting from this height.

Be captivated by the vast high sea overlooking the sea of Australia.

No!!! You're not supposed to jump from here!

 No barrier so do take care of your own safety!

Beware of strong wind too...

 Do you know that this site was used by the Japanese as their army quarter during WWII?

Tanjung Ringgit is strategically located, so it's an advantage to monitor
any strike coming from allies, especially Australia.

Therefore, you can find some remains of buildings, underwater cave at Gili Mangkok and equipment of Japan such as heavy artillery cannon to defend from enemy attacks...

Gua Meriam (Cannon Cave).

This heavy cannon is one of the deadly weapons to attack enemies that come near 
to the coast as it's facing north to south directly facing the beach.

The storage of ammunition located on the rear right side of the cannon that  
make the process of reloading much easier and faster. 

 Let's spread the love and stop the war!
