Mount Rinjani, Lombok

4.2
#2 of 33 in Nature in Lombok
Conquer Mount Rinjani, an active volcano. With an attractive lake occupying much of its caldera and hot springs surrounding its rim, the volcano provides expansive sights for those able to hike to the top and extensive views of the surrounding landscape. But this volcano doesn't need to be climbed to be admired--stand at its base and admire the volcano and its dominance over its surroundings and learn about its role in local mythology and religious practices. The volcano has a long history of eruptions great and small, so check with local authorities before heading there.

  • Don’t go in the rainy season! Some operators will still sell you the tour on the streets and say it’s possible, that this is a lie, but please don’t trust them. The weather is far too unpredictable...  more »

  • Mount Rinjani is a beast, but worth it. The views from the campsites and the summit are awesome. This is what makes the hike worth it. The lake looks stunning in the crater below. But be...  more »

  • I never go here before but I just want to let all the tourist know please stop destroy this beautiful place like doing something that shouldn't do at there. Don't wear sexy. Please. This mount being loved and it full of mystery even tho the villagers don't even believe it but I hope y'all believe it before it's too late. I love Indonesia. Peace.
  • This was my first highest trekking in my life and I recommend this place it has the natural beauty.we were not able to reach the summit before 6 am so please start early like 2 am or before that else you may not able to cover another river and hot spring spot if you are late from summit so please plan accordingly. There is beautiful waterfall and recommended to visit once you complete the trek and reach hotel.
  • Took about 6 hours to ascend (3 to descend) with our hired guide and porter. Moderate steepness until the verify end gets a bit more difficult. Was surprisingly not too chilly at the top camping overnight. Views were outstanding. A can’t miss stop on Lombok.
  • Mt. Rinjani provided some of the most beautiful views I have ever seen. Even now, I am in disbelief when I look back at my pictures. It was very difficult, yes, but absolutely worth it. Also, I had no experience with “smell of human excrement” or anything of the sort. Admittedly, there was more litter than I would have liked to see but I only say that because I don’t like to see litter anywhere. My advice: do it with friends, do it with people you’ll be okay with talking to for hours on end, and be prepared to work. It’s a stunning hike and I would definitely recommend it. Also, climbing to the peak is optional with excursions. If your group doesn’t feel like making that trek up there, you don’t have to. I will say, though, it was gorgeous and you’ll get your best photographs up there, because you’ll have your best views up there.
  • Scrambling up to the top of the Rinjani caldera and then down to it's lake was a fantastic experience. Such an Incredible sight, especially when you catch a first glimpse of the newer active cone that sits in the lake.
