About Trekking Mount Rinjani
Every year, over 20,000 people just like you come in Lombok island to climb Mount Rinjani 3.726 m above sea level, the 2nd highest volcano in Indonesia.
On the top of the volcano is a 6-by-8.5-kilometre caldera, which is filled partially by the crater lake known as Segara Anak or Anak Laut (Child of the Sea) due to blue color of water lake as Laut (Sea). This lake is approximately 2,000 metres above sea level and estimated to be about 200 metres deep; the caldera also contains hot springs. Sasak tribe and Hindu people assume the lake and the mount are sacred and some religion activities are occasionally done in the two areas.
Climbing Mount Rinjani does not require any technical skills or special equipment. However, the challenge is not to be taken lightly. You need to understand what lies ahead. You have a seemingly endless number of questions. Rest assured, you will find the answers to all your questions here – at Rinjani Trek Company, your Mount Rinjani trekking specialist.
What We Offer You
Rinjani Trek Company can help you plan every aspect of your climb, providing everything you need for a successful Rinjani summit and enjoyable experience.
Trekking Packages via Senaru Ascent Route
This is by far the most used route as it allows the (relatively) less strenuous trek to the crater rim only. You start at an elevation of 600 m in Senaru village, normally in the late morning or early afternoon and make the 6 hour ascent to the crater rim before dark.
First part of the trek is through tropical rainforest. Look and listen out for the lutung, or black monkey, swinging through the trees in the late morning. They are extremely shy, unlike for the common macaques which may gather near rest stops waiting for scraps. The route passes through POST II at 1,500 m, breaches the treeline at 2,000 m (POST III) and then it is a bit of slog up gravel paths to the camp site just below the crater rim at 2,600 m.
There is no clear path at the last section nearing crater rim, at an incline of 45 degrees. There is a POST Extra after POS 3, but it is pretty much gone, and the remaining bits have been chopped up by porters as firewood.
Trekking Packages via Sembalun Ascent Route
Starting in the morning from the Rinjani Trek Centre in the village, the climb to Pelawangan II at 2,638 m will take about 8 hr via POST I (1,300 m), POST II (1,500 m) and POST III (1,800 m). Starting altitude is1100 m, so there are no humid conditions to deal with. First half or more of the trek is literally a breeze. The trek through savannah grassland is windy and easygoing, with gentle ups and downs, and the only obstacle to look out for are the “cow pats” deposited by the villagers’ cows along the way. Rolling hills and amazing scenery help to ease the tiredness, unlike the enclosed tropical rainforest of Senaru route.
Soft Trek and Senaru Panorama Walk
Led by local women guides, this easy half-day walk explores the foothills of spectacular Rinjani volcano in Lombok’s northern district of Bayan.
Starting near the border of Gunung Rinjani National Park, your route follows old pathways among shady bamboo groves and village gardens before entering a wide, open landscape of rice terraces and palms.
