This trek is a fantastic 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.
You are picked up at 6 am at your hotel in the Senggigi area and driven to Sembalun. Upon arrival, you have breakfast while arranging final preparations. You leave around 9.30 am and start with a 2-hour walk to post 1. After a rest, you start your climb to post 3 around 1 pm where you have lunch before the day’s final climb to the rim of Plawangan Sembalun. Here you will set up camp and have dinner. You can enjoy a stunning view and a spectacular sunset on the rim.
After a short night (you get up at 3 am…) you have a cup of coffee or tea before climbing to Rinjani’s summit at 3.726 meters ASL. You should arrive at the summit around 6 am, just in time to see the beautiful sunrise. You have an excellent view from the summit; you can see the whole island of Lombok and even Mount Tambora on Bali. After sunrise, you start descending again to your camp on the rim, where you have breakfast before descending towards the lake. You should arrive at the lake around 12 pm. There is a hot water spring close to the lake, where you can relax and loosen any tight muscles. The water from the hot water spring is believed to heal all kinds of diseases, such as rheuma and skin diseases. Lunch is served close to the lake and you can even try fishing if you want. Around 3 pm, you start your 2-hour journey towards Senaru Plawangan hill, where you set up camp, have dinner and gaze at yet another fascinating sunset.
After a well-deserved rest, you get up at 8 am for the last part of your Rinjani trekking adventure. After breakfast, you hike to Senaru for 5 to 6 hours. You have lunch at post 2. The last part of the trip is through tropical rain forest. In Senaru, cars are waiting for you to bring you back to Senggigi and drop you off at your hotel.
The minimum group size for this activity is 2 people.
