DETAILED DESCRIPTION

This 4-day itinerary offers experienced trekkers an unforgettable journey through the spectacular landscapes of Mount Rinjani and Segara Anak crater lake. This challenging expedition involves camping, steep ascents and descents, and early mornings and is most suited to adventurous travelers with several mountain hikes already under their belt. The trek is bookended by visits to quiet mountain villages, where you’ll travel through fertile plains and get an up-close look at rural life in the highlands of Lombok. 

DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Sembalun Village

To begin your four-day journey, you’ll be picked up at your hotel in Mataram or at Lombok Airport and be transferred to Sembalun Village. Here, you will camp for the night or enjoy a homestay with one of the local families. Sembalun Village is a picturesque rural outpost in the fertile foothills of Rinjani Mountain, located 5,600 feet above sea level. The valley comprises lush green rice terraces and a patchwork of crops, and it is the perfect launch point for treks to the peak of Mount Rinjani. The traditional village here has been restored, offering travelers a glimpse into local history.

DAY 2: Plawangan Sembalun

You’ll start early today and set off straight after breakfast, trekking to the Plawangan Sembalun campsite. You’ll first pass through flat grasslands of grazing cattle, with the landscape growing more hilly and challenging as the day progresses. It’s a picturesque journey that holds the peak of Mount Rinjani constantly in view - a motivating sight, considering the day’s hike will take from eight to ten hours. The Plawangan Sembalun campsite is located on a ridge that offers a spectacular view of Rinjani peak when the clouds dissipate. You’ll camp here overnight. 

DAY 3: Segara Anak Lake

You’ll get up in the predawn hours today in order to reach Mount Rinjani peak by sunrise. At your destination, you’ll relax with hot tea and snacks as you watch the sun rise over Segara Anak crater lake and Gunung Baru peak in its center. After relaxing with this remarkable view, you’ll hike to the base camp for brunch then make your way to the Segara Anak Lake campsite, located inside the caldera. Mount Rinjani crater is more than six kilometers in diameter, a landscape of steep scrub-covered slopes and lush vegetation. The campsite is located right next to the lake, a tranquil spot where you can swim, explore caves or take a therapeutic dip in hot springs. 

DAY 4: Departure

This morning, you’ll depart the campsite and hike to the west rim of Mount Rinjani, where you can take a final glimpse of the crater lake. From here, you’ll descend to Senaru Village. Senaru is a beautiful town with thick rainforest and waterfalls - well worth exploring for travelers who wish to extend their stay. From Senaru, you’ll be transferred to the airport.
