The trek will start from the Sembalun village at an altitude of 1100 m. We will then drive to Sembalun village. This route will be pampered with a vast landscape, a slim, long path. It will be a bit hot while crossing the meadow to get to the edge of the crater, at an altitude of 2600 m. You will climb five hills, which are very high and challenging. On the second day you will reach the summit, with a height of 3.726m. We will start at 3 a.m in order to see the sunrise from the summit.
In addition to the summit, you will also be visiting and bathing in the lake and hot spring. You will also be camping in the second crater, which has an incredible view. You will descend through tropical rainforest.
This is a very impressive trek. Don’t forget your camera when you conquer the second highest mountain in Indonesia.
*A deluxe package is also availiable for this trek. The deluxe version costs USD 340,-/ EUR 302,- for 1 person and includes hot water, Wi -Fi, and AC at the hotel.
What’s the plan?
The day you arrive to Lombok you will be picked up by our staff at Lombok Airport or at any of Lombok ports such as Lembar/Bangsal, Teluk Kodek or from any main touristic attraction in Senggigi, Kuta Lombok, 3 (Gilis Trawangan, Meno, Air). We will then drive you to your hotel in Senaru. Once in Senaru, you will meet us and we will enjoy some welcoming drinks. You will meet your trekking guide who will then explain the trek. If you arrive at least 1 hour before the sunset, you can go to see the Sindang Gile and Tiu Kelap Waterfalls. Note: you can arrive at the same day of the trekking, but we recommend you to get to Senaru the day before and spend the night. That way there will be no delays.

Frequently Asked Questions
The best months for a trekking on Mount Rinjani are from April to December. In fact, officially you can only book your trekking for these months. This has everything to do with the fact that Mount Rinjani National Park is closed in the rainy season, which lasts from January to March. Although there are providers who nevertheless have access, we recommend avoiding the mountain in the rainy season.
Do you make it to your destinations as planned? Often this depends on the unpredictable weather in the mountains. However, it can also depend on your own physical condition.
Mount Rinjani is principally for everyone, but some physical condition can make trekking lot easier and more enjoyable. One sure way to get fit for trekking and hiking in Indonesia is to, you could have guessed it: hike more. Do you like walking, have you done trekking at an altitude before and do you sport twice a week on average? With a little extra training, you’ll soon be ready for this beautiful trekking in Lombok Island.
Another good idea is to walk a lot of stairs. This will especially help for the first day, when you conquer 1500 meters of elevation. Make sure you are well prepared. This is important for your safety, but also for that of your team. Make sure you start six months in advance with an hour’s hike twice a week.
It is normal to tip porters, guides and chefs. Opinions on how many are divided. We recommend reserving an amount of IDR 200K for porters. A guide will often get a little more and will expect about IDR 300K. Converted this is an amount of approximately USD 20. Be generous. It will be appreciated.
The treks always include entrance to Mount Rinjani National Park. This means that permits are also inclusive. The fee for permits consists of 13% for the National Park, 62% for the Rinjani Ecotourism Program and 25% for the maintenance of the trails.
On your trek to Mount Rinjani packing the right equipment is essential. Make sure you have clothes with you for both rain and sunshine. Wear proper hiking shoes and try to keep your backpack as light as possible. Consider bringing walking sticks with you. Don’t forget to bring warm clothing for the top.
