Mount Rinjani (Gunung Rinjani) is an active volcano on the island of Lombok. It’s Indonesia’s second highest, after Mt. Kerinci on the island of Sumatra.

Rinjani is the most picturesque volcano we’ve ever seen as if taken straight out of a picture book. Its summit reaches 3726 meters above sea level and dominates the landscape of the northern part of the island. The crater rim surrounds a sunken caldera with very steep walls and a crater lake with dark blue water. Out of the water rises a perfectly round volcanic cone formed by the last lava eruption in 1994. Inside the caldera, there are a few cold springs with drinking water and hot springs that you can bathe in.

Rinjani is a sacred mountain for the Hindu and Sasak people who live around the volcano, and several times a year there are religious ceremonies practiced on the crater rim and on the summit

Itinerary

Day 1: Start around 8–8:30 am, then climb 2067 vertical meters to reach the crater rim by 6 pm at the latest. Enjoy an incredible sunset, then sleep in a tent close to the rim at 2641 meters above sea level.

Day 2: Wake up at 5:30 am, enjoy the sunrise, descend 600 vertical meters (in 2–2.5 hours) down to the lake, relax and enjoy the hot springs, then climb 600 vertical meters up to another point on the rim (another 2–2.5 hours). Sleep in a tent on the rim just below the summit.

Day 3: If you want to climb the rim wake up at 2:15 am and start climbing by 2:30. Climb for a maximum of 4 hours, which gives you plenty of time to reach the summit (1050 vertical meters, of which the first third is difficult, the second third is relatively easy and the last third is pretty exhausting). Enjoy a most incredible sunrise, then descend to base camp by 8:30. If you don’t want to climb the summit you can sleep until 8 am, then have breakfast with the entire group at 8:30. At 9 am you will start the long descent and you should reach Sembalun by 1:30 pm. Here you’ll be picked up and transported to Senaru where you reunite with your luggage which you left there 3 days ago.
