This 3-day Rinjani trekking adventure is an amazing experience if you like mountains. Mount Rinjani is Indonesia’s second highest and most beautiful volcano and has a lot to offer. 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.
If you arrive the day before the climb, you are picked up from the airport. If you are already in Lombok, we pick you up from the place where you are staying and drive you to the hotel in Senaru or Sembalun.
Here, you meet your trekking guide. We believe it is important to meet your guide before starting the climb. He explains you everything you need to know to safely climb Mount Rinjani.
You wake up at 6 am and have breakfast. After breakfast, you drive to Sembalun (1,100 m ASL) and register at the Rinjani information center.
The trekking starts from the village of Sembalun around 8 am. You start with a gentle climb through an open meadow. After about 2 hours of walking, you reach post 1 (1,300 m ASL). After another 40 minutes, you arrive at post 2 (1,500 m ASL). You continue your climb to post 3 (1,800 m ASL) where you have lunch.After lunch and some rest, you continue your climb to the Sembalun crater rim (2,639 m ASL). This takes around 3 hours, including a long steep climb.
You set up camp on the rim where you can enjoy the beautiful sunset and sunrise.
Day 3: Pelawangan Sembalun – summit – Sembalun – departure
You wake up around 2 am and enjoy a hot drink and a light breakfast.
Around 3 am you start your climb to the summit of Mount Rinjani at 3,726 m ASL. The first part is a moderate climb, followed by an easier but longer part. The final climb is pretty heavy.
At 6 am, you reach the summit and enjoy the beautiful sunrise and the panoramic views of Lombok island, the island of Bali, the island of Sumbawa and the Segara Anak Lake.
From the top, you make your descend to the crater rim for about 2 hours and have breakfast there.
After breakfast, you continue the descent to the village of Sembalun, which takes approximately 5 hours. A car takes you to the village of Senaru, from where you are transferred to your next Lombok location or to the airport.

Unfortunately I've made a mistake, thinking I could do this climb in 3 days. They're not lying when they say you need a good physical condition - mine obviously wasn't, I had to give up. Nothing wrong with the organizational part of the trip, quite the opposite as I was looked after really well, even after quitting. Will have to train and come back some day...

I finally managed to conquer Rinjani - I'd tried a few years ago, but got really sick the day before so had to cancel. Feeling extremely happy and grateful to have been given another chance, it was so worth it. Don't forget to enjoy every second of this great climb, you'll love it!!!

Ce fut une superbe expérience! Nous étions TRES fière d'avoir le privilège d'observer une telle vue. Les organisateurs ont vraiment tout simplifié et rendu ce treck accessible à n'importe qui de motivé. Foncez, même si vous pensez de ne pas y arriver, l'expérience vaut vraiment la peine.
