Mount Rinjani, Lombok

4.1
#4 of 12 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.

  • For someone who's not very athletic like me, climbing the Rinjani was a rash but unregrettable experience. The moment when I reached the summit, I felt I have achieved the impossible. From my experien...  more »

  • One of the most challenging treks you will do. Training is definitely required if you want to enjoy the few days up there. Recommended to take the 4D3N trip. Do not be misled by the short time, coz it is the intensity and steepness of the trek that will tax you. But the view up at the summit is well worth it.
  • One of the most picturesque mountain scenery in Indonesia. Tough and long hike, but my five days trekking was fully rewarded by the hot spring in the lake, thousand of beautiful memories stored safely on my compact flash, spending one peaceful night at the edge of the lake and summit the Rinjani peak.
  • What a nice place for wasting time. I wanna stay here for a week but I have my limit. Enchanting scenery by it's savana, dessert, lake in the middle, and summit. I need 2 days for summit. Natural water provided till 4 hours before summit. Many foreign and local tourist here. You need many needs for survive, so you must bring heavy load. If you can't bring heavy load, you can use local guide for bringing it. You won't be dissapointed here. I promise.
  • Tough hiking but stunning views. I would recommend doing the 3 day trek that passes the lake and hot springs as this was my favourite part of the hike. It's a real shame that there is so much trash everywhere. It takes away a lot of the whole experience.
  • Beautiful mountain, every day of the hike was a different view and atmosphere. Adi Trekker, gave some top notch services. Glad to have done this 2 night 3 days Hike.
