This long journey really allows you to get up close and personal with Mount Rinjani. You start by trekking through a rainforest past lush greenery and gnarled tree roots and branches. Then you make your way higher to rockier and cooler climes until you reach the crater rim where you will camp for the night.
As the sun rises early the next morning you will be treated to views out over Lombok’s coastline and beyond to the Gili islands and Mount Agung rising above Bali in the distance. After breakfast it’s onwards to the stunning aquamarine lake in the crater, and then to the hot springs where you can soak your tired muscles in the heated natural spring pools.
The third day is probably the most challenging, but also the most rewarding, as you will finally make your way to the summit of the volcano. From the top you can watch the sun rise over the entire island of Lombok lighting up the gorgeous crater lake below, as well as the neighboring islands scattered along Indonesia’s Ring of Fire. This is definitely a trek and a half, but also an unforgettable experience like no other.
