Day 1 – Lombok / Sembalun Village
Be picked up from the airport at Lombok or from the hotel in Mataram or Senggigi by our tour guide. After being picked up you’ll be brought to Sembalun village which is approximately four hours away. The village is one of two key gateways and starting points when trekking to Mount Rinjani and upon arrival at the village, you’ll be brought to your hotel for the night to get a good night’s rest.
Day 2 – Sembalun / Plawangan Sembalun
Have a delicious breakfast before beginning your climb to Mount Rinjani peak! You’ll be walking through the Gunung Rinjani National Park which is around 41,330 hectares and is abundant in tropical flora and fauna. You’ll get to be surrounded by nature as you hike two hours to Shelter 1 before continuing to Shelter 2 after another couple of hours. Once you arrive at Shelter 2, you’ll break for lunch to refill your energy and strength.
Head towards Shelter 3 which will be where the challenge truly starts as this path is going to be steeper, making it a bit harder for you to trek through leisurely. After 3 hours you will have reached Plawangan Sembalun where you’ll set up camp and spend the night sleeping under the twinkling stars. Your campsite is situated on the rime of a crater and is 2639 meters above sea level making the temperatures to get as low as 7 degrees. So prepare yourself for a chilly night. At this location, you’ll be a wide view of the gorgeous Segara Anak Lake which is a crater.
Day 3 – Plawangan Sembalun / Rinjani Peak / Segara Anak Lake
At 3 am you’ll have a small breakfast with a hot coffee or tea before starting the last stretch of your climb to the summit. Mount Rinjani is the second highest mountain Indonesia, standing at 3,726 meters tall and is definitely an exciting climb. This mountain is also part of the famous ‘ring of fire’ which holds spiritual significance for the local people which are evident in the name ‘Rinjani’ meaning ‘God’ in old Javanese. As you make your way to the mountain you’ll pass through a steep ridge covered with sand and small rocks so tread carefully. The weather will also get significantly colder as get closer to the summit so be prepared to feel chilly and cold.
After 3 hours, you’ll have arrived at Mount Rinjani’s summit! Feel accomplished as you arrive at your destination and savour the beautiful view of the ocean as it stretches out to Bali Island. Watch as the first ray of light of the day touches the Segara Anak Lake, creating the most breathtaking sight that you’ll want to capture with your camera. Then head back to the campsite for a more filling breakfast as a reward for achieving your goal of completing the three days hike to the summit. After breakfast, you’ll go down to Segara Anak Lake which should take around 3 hours where you’ll be surrounded by the towering mountains and verdant greenery as you overlook a gorgeous lake. Soothe your aching muscles at the hot springs and relax your body in the soothing warm waters after a tiring day before sleeping at the campsite set up at the lake.
Day 4 – Segara Anak Lake / Senaru Village / Mataram or Senggigi
