Lombok: 3-Day Mount Rinjani Summit Trek

4. Lombok: 3-Day Mount Rinjani Summit Trek

Experience an unforgettable journey to Mount Rinjani on the Indonesian island of Lombok. For the Sasak and Balinese people of Lombok, the volcano is revered as a sacred place and they believe the gods live at the summit of the mountain. This 3-day trekking package designed for advance trekkers takes you to the summit of Mount Rinjani. You will start in Sembalun and encounter steep ascents and descents on a fairly good system of tracks before ending in Senaru. Detailed Itinerary Day 1: Your guide will pick you up at your hotel in the morning and then you will transfer to Sembalun. You will register at the Rinjani Information Center (RIC) in Sembalun Lawang, meet your guide, and arrange the national park entry tickets. Your guide will give you a briefing with information on the route, local cultural traditions, and what you might see, as well as rubbish management and safety procedures. The trek starts from Sembalun Lawang with a walk up a gentle ascent through open grassland used by the local people for cattle grazing. You will take a short rest at Pemantauan (1,300 meters) before reaching Tengengean (1,500 meters) after 3 hours, where you can enjoy the beautiful views of Mount Rinjani summit. After a 1-hour ascent to Pada Balong (1,800 meters) you will start to climb amidst the pine-like casuarinas species, locally known as “cemara”. You may see wild pigs and the long-tailed grey macaque monkeys on the way to the campsite at the Plawangan II Sembalun crater rim (2,639 meters). Day 2: An early start at 03:00 is necessary for the hard 3-hour climb to the summit (3,726 meters). Once there, you can enjoy the proud feelings of satisfaction and the amazing views of the sunrise across the Wallace Line to Bali, Mount Agung, and Sumbawa. You will then return down the ridge passing numerous Bunga Abadi edelweiss plants to the crater rim camp for a well-deserved breakfast. After breakfast you will walk 2-3 hours down the steep trail to the crater lake. At the lake you can enjoy swimming or exploring the caves and hot springs, which are believed to have healing powers, while the porters prepare your lunch. After the lunch break, you will leave the lake and climb for 2.5 hours up to the campsite at the Plawangan I Senaru crater rim (2,461 meters). Enjoy dinner and stay overnight at the crater rim. Day 3: After breakfast you will descend down the long trail to Senaru village (601 meters), through thick tropical forests rich in flora, birdlife, and a variety of butterflies. You might see orchid and, if lucky, the rare black ebony leaf monkey known locally as “lutung”. You will take rest stops along the way, with village stories and local legends from your guide. Features include the Batu Penyesalan stone and Bunut Ngengkang banyan tree that looks like someone standing with their legs apart. After a 7-hour walk from the rim the trek ends at the Rinjani Trek Center on the road heading to Senaru, where a car is waiting to transfer you to the airport, Senggigi, or Gili Island harbor.

What people are saying about Mount Rinjani

Driver was good and fast in his driving. The guide was patient with us and helped us along the way. Definitely worth going but bring your poncho and slippers. No one told us about crossing over the river but it all worked well paying $1.50 SGD for a pair of flip flops near by before entering.

We had a great experience of this tour and came back delighted. We enjoyed both the taxi driver and the guide who shared their experiences and made us visit their island with anecdotes. Do not forget his swimsuit because unforgettable experience than to bathe at the foot of the waterfalls.

we had a very good day, our guide Uji was super friendly, knew very much about lombok & the culture and was happy to answer all our questions. He also asked if there was anything specific we wanted to see and was happy to customise the tour. Also great music on the drive!

We departed from the Sheraton in Senggigi, the drive was about 2.5hrs. Both waterfalls were beautiful and the walks easy

Action packed tour

Super tour to the waterfall through the river, despite changeable rainy weather!
