Among all the other activities happening during this festival, two big traditional events will take place during this festival. “Presean” and “Rebo Bontong” ceremonies worth a look!

“Presean” tradition is a dexterity fighting tradition for Sasak communities. It’s a form of traditional martial art from Lombok, a combination of an agility test and stick fighting.

“Rebo Bontong” tradition is a shared bathing ritual carried out by the Sasak people. This unique tradition, which has been around for hundreds of years, is believed by the community to be able to purify the body and eliminate pain. When Rebo Bontong arrives, the Sasak people will come in droves to the nearest river or coast and take a shower. Some villages also carry out ritual bathing together in a sacred village well.
