This 3-day Rinjani trekking is a amazing experience if you like mountains. Mount Rinjani rises 3,726 m above sea level and is Indonesia’s second highest and most beautiful volcano. Climbing Mount Rinjani and camping on the crater rim with its beautiful sunset and sunrise is an experience you will never forget. I – one of the Mundooz owners – did this climb 20 years ago and it still feels like yesterday. For security reasons, this trip is not available from January until the end of March. Please note that you need to be fit and in good health for climbing Mount Rinjani.

The volcano is a world-class tourism destination and has been nominated for a number of international awards, as well as being granted the World Geopark status by UNESCO. In 2004, Mount Rinjani won the World Legacy Award and in 2005 and 2008 the volcano was a finalist for the tourism in the Tomorrow Awards from the World Travel Tourism Council (WTTC).

Most tourists climb Rinjani from July to September (during the European summer holidays and Lombok’s high season), but the season already starts in April.


Day 1: hotel – Sembalun – rim 

  • Around 5 am, you are picked up from your hotel and head east to Sembalun Lawang, the departure point of the climb.
  • You prepare for the trip, leave Sembalun Lawang for Tengengean and rest at an open stilted house – the native people call it Berugak. Afterwards, you continue to Pade Balong for lunch.

Day 3: Segara Anak Lake – Senaru – hotel

Memorable climb

We had a great time hiking Mt Rinjani last summer. Mundooz did a great job organizing everything we needed.

The team was very impressive and made sure this trek was one of the best experiences in our lives. They took great care of our safety and well being. I definitely recommend this trek and this tour company.
