Mount Rinjani, Lombok

4.1
#2 of 23 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.

  • Rinjani 3.676 meters above sea level. One of the best view volcano I've ever seen. Pros: Relatively easy to climb (no need any special equipment - just good shoes and hiking stick). Really, really beautiful view of sunrise or sunset or even the day it self. There are lot source of water. Lot of cheap porter. There are hot spring as well. Good food and lot of package option if you hire travel package. I will be there again this year. Cons: From airport took 3-4 hours to Sembalun or Senaru the starting hiking spot. No bath room at the top so you have to bring your own wet tissue or build your temporary bathroom. Cold and windy (sometimes), off course it is a mountain dude.
  • Wow what a place. Advice is to not underestimate the trek. It is tough and you will get little sleep on the mountain. The worst bit is when you are nearly on your knees and a porter comes strolling past in flip flops carrying 30kg. Those guys are superhuman. The views are amazing. From the crater to the lake to the hot springs and the morning glimpse of the gillis. Only one issue and it has been said by many, trash at all the rest stops. Indonesian attitudes need to change and infrastructures should be put in place to deal with waste disposal.
  • Amazing BuT please CLEAN IT! Use the fees we pay to educate people and not to throw litter and 💩 everywhere... other than that amazing view from the top. DIFFICULT hike ;-) Paid 1,2M for 2 people including the night before starting the trek (that was just a few years ago)
  • Amazing view! one of the best hiking I had. We chose to hike for 3day2night. Set camp at the ridge for the first night, hoist before dawn, climb down and set camp at lakeside for the second night. You can enjoy the hot spring on the way too. And then for the 3rd day, climb over the ridge and head back. The hoisting was exhausting but totally worth it
  • One of the most challenging treks you will be embarking on. Training is definitely required if you want to enjoy the few days up there. You would be staying in tents, and truly experiencing true outdoor hiking and trekking. The guides and porters are a must. The porters not only help you setup the tents and cook delicious food throughout the whole hike, but they also can help you carry your belongings for a small fee. They have the 3D2N trek, but it might be a little rushed and taxing on your legs, so I would recommend to take the 4D3N trip. Plus you get an extra night camp out at the crater camp site. Expect strong winds and absolutely mind blowing number of stars. Do not be like most hikers, misled by the short time, coz it is the intensity and steepness of the trek that will tax you. The last stretch (1km or so) would really be a true test of your grit. Push on and stick with your guide. The view up at the summit is well worth it.
