Let’s start your journey by choosing a suitable package below.

Trekking via Sembalun

Trekking via Senaru

Best time for Trekking Rinjani Mountain

The best time to go hiking Mount Rinjani is between April and October, because the weather is usually a lot better during this time. The most busy time at Rinjani is during July and August, so if you’re looking a more quiet visit, a good time to go hiking with us is between April and June or September and October. The Rinjani national park always closes between the beginning of January and end of March because of Indonesian rainy-season, so we cannot offer any trekking tours during this time. However, north of Lombok is definitely worth a visit even in rainy-season, as we offer camping tours and day trips around Senaru all year round.

Sembalun or Senaru Trekking Route?

If your goal is to reach the summit as fast as possible, then the route via Sembalun is your best choice. If not, the Senaru route offers more beautiful scenery and a more shaded path than Sembalun, but takes a minimum of 3 days to reach the summit.

The lake of Mount Rinjani

Mount Rinjani is – with its 3.726 meters above sea level – the second highest volcano in Indonesia. The crater rim offers a fantastic panorama view of the Segara Anak Lake and the volcano. From the summit of Mount Rinjani, you can see half of Lombok as well as Gili Meno, Gili Air and Gili Trawangan and even Bali. Depending on how long you want to spend on the mountain there is also the opportunity to bath in the hot springs, visit the caves, camp on the lake or climb Mount Baru, the new smaller volcano that is growing out of the crater.

What to See?

A wide variety of flora and fauna emblazoned as far as eyes can see.

Crater rim

From the rim of the Volcano, you can catch enchanting views stretching from east to west. In the west, the Gili Islands can be seen like three small drops in the vast ocean, with Bali’s volcano Mount Agung is towering in the distance with stunning sunsets. 

In the east, we have a perfect vantage point of the inside of the Volcano crater, with Mount Baru Jari and the lake of Rinjani which offers an amazing view.

Lake

The crecent-shaped Segara Anak is one of the most beautiful points of interest on Mount Rinjani. It lies at a whopping 2008 meters above sea level and has an area of 11.126 hA. It is said to have a depth of up to 230 meters, but data measurements made in 1925 says it even yields a depth of +250 meters. However, after the explosion in 1994, the lake’s depth, measured in 1951 was changed to a depth of 200 meters, with the area shrinking to an area of 11.000 hA.

Hot spring

The hot springs of Mount Rinjani is another attraction worth visiting when trekking the Volcano. With water flowing through the deeper, hotter layers of the earth, it comes in contact with magma and comes rising to the surface in forms of hot springs. This phenomenon is rarely encountered in the world which makes this a highly recommended stop on your trekking adventure on Mount Rinjani. 

On the summit

With a height of 3.726 meters above sea level, the top of Mount Rinjani soars above everything else. From here you can see all the way to Sumbawa in the east, and Bali with Mount Agung in the west. Looking south, you can also see almost all of Lombok, with all its cities glowing in the night like fireflies in the night.
