Day 1: Early flight to Lombok. From the Capital, Mataram, we take a 2 hour bus journey to Senaru, located on the northern slopes of Rinjani. Here we explore magnificent waterfalls, visit Sasak villages and meet and greet our Porters for the trek.
Day 2: Another early start for the beginning of a challenging 8 hour day. We walk through pristine rain forest, with tremendous opportunities for viewing wildlife. Camp is made just below the crater rim.
Day 3: After a delicious breakfast, we head up to the volcano’s rim for a siting of the awesome caldera, its lake and the summit of Rinjani. Camp will be made on the shores of the lake.
Day 4: Today will be spent relaxing in the nearby hot springs and exploring the steaming Milk caves. After a satisfying lunch it’s a grueling trek up the other side of the caldera to base camp. Sunset from here is awesome.
Day 5: Summit day begins at 2.30am. We climb several ridges for 3-4 hours until we reach the true summit of Rinjani. The views across Bali, Lombok and Sumbawa are spectacular. It’s then a long down hill trek to Lawang.
Day 6: The last day of the trek is spent recouping and traveling to the coast for a much deserved massage and rest. The night is spent in one of Lombok’s finest hotels on the famous Sengiggi beach.
Day 7: In complete contrast to the mountain, we head out on a boat to Gili Tranwangan for snorkeling, fishing and relaxing. You can now sit back, reflect and enjoy the feeling of being a Rinjani summitries.
