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.

  • I love coming back on this volcano I'm as magnetized, as a call of Rinjani in this magic place. My 1st trek was in 2010 and have been 3 other times income. It is in 2010 that I've known a great guide and didn't look forward to find him each time. Since then he has his own agency and reviews "authentic are ecstatic!" This tough trek in class 3J/2N can be 2 peaks, the descent to the Lake and the Summit. The views are breathtaking beauty. The 2D/1N allows access to one of the 2 ridges and the sublime view of the son of Rinjani on the Lake which has lost a piece of its Summit cone in 2016 without disgrace the incredible vision of the site also in the background the Summit of Rinjani. Really a great volcano trek. For those looking to contact M Zack, it has 2 websites: Em Adventure and trekkingsembalum.com

  • I was hiked this with a guide and a porter. They were really nice! Although this was my first hike, the guide was patiently waiting for me to catch up. We hike from Sembalun - Plawangan Sembalun - Sum...  more »

  • 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. 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.
  • Amazing place and most difficult trek I have every attempted to conquer without any doubt. But if you are not able to do the whole summit and lake still decent fitness person would able to reach crater and enjoy the breath taking views of the lake. The sad thing is people throw litter everywhere and it make bit unpleasant specially around the camping site at crater. Night time can be cold and windy so better prepare for that. Another important thing, if you are trekking on dry season better bring mask as it is very dusty most of the trail. Anyone who haven't done any difficult treks, please do enough training before attempt this.
  • This is one of the go-to destinations in Indonesia. Very beautiful. The porters are good cooks, they're so friendly and honest. Let's support locals! And stay clean please!
  • A fantastic trek for all ability levels. We did the trek to the summit in 2 days; first day upto the rim of the crater and the following morning upto the summit. Summit climb is really tough but so worth it when you get there. Amazing trip. You can also walk the crater; you don’t have to do the summit!
  • So far the most memorable trekking experience I ever had. Unbelievable and magnificent views. It was very tough but worth every single step. Some advice to those who contemplate this "journey", be fit physically and strong mentally. We did the 3D2N trip from Sembalun to Senaru Village. My rough estimate we travers around 35km in total. Good to bring extra trekking sandals especially after using your shoes for quite sometime.
