The Ultimate Mount Rinjani Trekking Guide (2024 Update)

Picture of Jane And Stephen

  • Last Updated: December 12, 2023

A Mount Rinjani trekking tour is not for novice hikers or casual travellers. But if you’re ready for an epic 3-day journey to the summit of the second highest volcano in Indonesia, here’s everything you need to know before you go in our guide.

At 3,726 metres above sea level, Mount Rinjani looms large over the entire island of Lombok in Indonesia.

Of the 130 volcanoes in the country, Rinjani is the second-highest (topped only by Mount Kerinci on Sumatra).

Rinjani’s ominous silhouette is a constant reminder of the powerful forces rumbling just beneath the surface of the earth.

That power is what draws hundreds of intrepid hikers to Rinjani every day.

Why Do a Rinjani Trek?

Could you handle a rinjani trek, sembalun or senaru: where to start, how many nights on rinjani, what’s the food like on a rinjani trek, where do you sleep on rinjani, what does a rinjani trekking tour cost, how to choose the best rinjani trekking service, what’s included on a mount rinjani tour, tips for trekking mount rinjani, rinjani trekking packing list, save this pin for later.

The tough hike to the crater rim is rewarded by absolutely magnificent views.

Rocky black soil at the summit drops off into a lush valley filled with purples so deep and greens so bright they don’t look like they should exist in nature.

Lake Segara Anak, nestled in the bottom of the gaping crater, is a deep turquoise, echoing the spectacular colour of Lombok’s seas.

On the edge of the lake sits an active volcano, Mount Barujari, which steadily spews threatening clouds of smoke into the air.

Mount Rinjani Trekking

And at night, the sky is blanketed with stars so thick they look painted on.

While the views inspire awe, the most compelling reason to trek Mount Rinjani is to challenge your body and your mind, leap firmly out of your comfort zone, and be able to shout “Hell yes, I did it!”

If that sounds good to you, read on for everything you need about…

How to Plan Your Epic Mount Rinjani Trekking Adventure

I’ll admit, we went into the Mount Rinjani trek with a bit of a cavalier attitude. Sure, we’d read the stories about how hard it was supposed to be, but we’re experienced trekkers with decades of challenging mountain hikes behind us.

We’ve trekked all over Canada, Europe, and even in Vietnam .

How much harder could trekking Mount Rinjani possibly be?

As it turns out, trekking Rinjani is hard. Really freaking hard.

The Rinjani trek starts with a climb of 1500 m over 8 km. Most of that elevation change takes place during in the final 4 km, which take about 4 hours.

Yep, that’s just one measly kilometre an hour.

To make matters more difficult, there is next to no trail maintenance, so the route is sandy, slippery, and ridiculously steep.

Unless you’re a trail running hero or an actual superhero, be prepared to have your will and your body pushed to their limits on your way up Mount Rinjani.

And that’s just the first day.

The second day starts in the middle of the night, so hikers can summit for sunrise. To get the summit, there’s another 1000 m of elevation gain, along a narrow trail of slippery loose scree.

It’s cold up there, too. Even in August, the temperature hovers around freezing.

After all the climbing, the descent should be a relief. Instead, it seems to go on for days, requiring every ounce of hamstring strength you can muster, plus knees of steel, and an excellent sense of humour.

Trekking Mount Rinjani

If you come away without any scraped knees or sore muscles, you’re definitely part mountain goat!

So, could you handle trekking Rinjani?

If you’ve read all of this and you’re thinking “Hell, yeah! Bring it on!” then keep reading.

If you’re still not sure, check out my 7 Essential Tips For Surviving A Mount Rinjani Trek →

What Are The Options For a Rinjani Trekking Tour?

There are two main points of entry to Rinjani National Park.

You can ascend from the village of Sembalun or from Senaru. On three- and four-day hikes, you depart from one village and descend to the other.

We highly recommend starting in Sembalun because of the way the trails are configured.

The first day of ascent from Sembalun is steep and sandy. It looks like it would be absolutely brutal going in the opposite direction.

Likewise, the descent to the crater lake is so steep and rugged, that it would be a real leg-breaker going the other way.

If you want a more off-the-beaten track experience, book a private tour and ask about one of the less-used routes, like the trails from Aik Berik or Torean. We wish we had known about them before our trek!

Three Days, Two Nights

The most popular option (and the one we recommend) is the 3-day, 2-night trek . This gives you just enough time to climb to the summit and also visit the crater lake and hot springs.

If you’re in no rush, consider the 4-day, 3-night option , which goes to the same locations but provides a little more free time to relax and enjoy Mount Rinjani.

Two Days, One Night

The 2-day, 1-night tour from Sembalun includes the option to summit at sunrise. If you’re in amazing shape and love to punish your machine, go for it!

Otherwise, take pity on your poor body and give yourself more time on the mountain.

The 2-day, 1-night trek from Senbaru takes trekkers to the crater rim opposite the summit. This is the easiest (not to say that it’s easy) of the Mount Rinjani trekking options.

You don’t get near the summit or the lake but it does provide incredible views of the crater. If you think you can’t handle a longer trek but still want to experience Rinjani, this is probably the best option.

If you book the full 2-day, 1-night tour on Klook they will pick you up from anywhere in Lombok and provide everything for you.

BONUS –  Booking ahead of time ensures you won’t miss out on the tour, and get the best price too! And just for NOMADasaurus readers, if you use the Klook discount code  “NOMADS10”  on the website when checking out, you’ll get $10 off your first booking!

Mount Rinjani Trekking

Be aware that “one night” or “two nights” refers to number of nights on the mountain. Most Rinjani trekking companies encourage you to spend a night in Senbaru before the tour to get an early start. This hotel is often included in the price, but be sure to check!

Private Tours and Hiking Rinjani Without A Guide

While it is technically possible to trek Mount Rinjani without a tour or a guide, it is actively discouraged both by the government and the community. Unless you are an extremely experienced hiker and have hiked in the tropics before, don’t even consider it. If you’re injured on the mountain without a guide or porters, you’ll be in some serious trouble.

If you do decide to trek Rinjani independently, please sign in at the park office and pay the entrance fee. Though it’s questionable whether the fees are used to maintain Rinjani, signing in is for your own safety.

On our day-one lunch break, we were astonished to see full-on camp kitchens being set up by all the guides and porters on the mountain.

In Canada, you’re lucky to get a squashed peanut butter sandwich for lunch on a long hike.

On Rinjani, you get a heaping plate of fried vegetables, tofu and tempeh, a pile of freshly cooked rice crackers, all the rice you can eat, plus a massive fruit plate for dessert. And that’s just the vegetarian option!

Mount Rinjani Trekking Meals

This meal was not unusual. Everything we ate on Rinjani, and everything we saw being served to fellow trekkers, was freshly cooked and plentiful. There was so much food, we were rarely able to finish our meals.

You’ll sleep snuggled in a tent at a campsite on the crater rim or by the lake.

Our tent was clean and modern, if a little bit short for our long bodies! The sleeping bags had been freshly laundered and the camp pillows were also clean.

You won’t find much solitude at your campsite though, since hundreds of other trekkers will be camping right alongside you.

There’s a huge range of prices for trekking Rinjani, depending on which company you go with, where and when you book, and which tour option you choose. I saw prices quoted anywhere between $80 and $450 US for similar tours.

Avoid the cheapest companies, as many don’t provide essential services like an experienced guide, good sleeping bags, garbage pack-out, and a toilet tent.

You can save money by booking once you’re already on Lombok. Just make sure you know which Rinjani trekking company you’re going with so you can ask the essential questions and check their reviews.

If you don’t have time to wait around on Lombok looking for a tour with availability, it is best to book ahead . Check out some of the tours I’ve linked to on this page.

Rinjani Trekking Porters

Budget a little extra for tipping. After you see how hard your porters and guide work, you will be happy to supplement their incomes.

A minimum of 100,000 IDR (around $8 US) per guide/porter from each hiker is a good guideline.

Choose your Mount Rinjani trekking package carefully. Yes, you can pick up el cheapo tours after you arrive in Lombok but you tend to get what you pay for on Mount Rinjani.

I recommend ignoring the cheapest options and spending a little more to ensure you are comfortable and safe on the mountain.

Hajar Trekking took excellent care of us during our Mount Rinjani tour. We can enthusiastically recommend them.*

Hajar grew up in Senbaru and he cares deeply about the mountain and the future of tourism there. Our guide, Adi, was funny, informative, and always put our safety first.

He has been up the mountain hundreds of times, knows every rock and tree root on the trail, and was patient with our endless stops for photos and videos.

Mount Rinjani Trekking

The two porters who took care of us were just amazing, too, working their butts off to lug our camping gear and food up the mountain and to get our campsite set up and perfect before we arrived.

These are the things that should be included in your Rinjani trekking package. If they aren’t, look for another company.

  • One English-speaking, licensed, experienced guide
  • One porter per person in your group
  • Meals, snacks, soft drinks and water
  • Tent and sleeping bag
  • Transportation to and from any town on Lombok
  • Transportation between Senbaru and Sembalun
  • Hotel stay in Senbaru the night before the trek

Some companies provide a few nice-to-have extras. This is what we got:

A toilet tent allowed us to do our business in private and to bury our waste. Without a toilet tent, you take your chances in the bushes where privacy is very hard to come by.

A camping pillow which helped us get a better night’s sleep.

Two camping chairs that kept us out of the thick Rinjani dust at mealtimes.

Winter jackets to keep us warm at the top of the mountain. Even in August, the summit was around 5 degrees celsius! Brrrr.

We recommend having a good backpack for hiking as well .

Rinjani Trekking

Headlamps to make the ascent to the Rinjani summit possible. A headlamp leaves your hands free to carry trekking poles or help you scramble up the steepest sections.

Trekking poles to save your knees on the steep descents and give you extra ability to balance on the often treacherous trails.

Other Essential Questions To Ask About Your Rinjani Trekking Package

What do the porters carry? Usually, hikers carry all their personal items (clothes, toiletries etc) and the porters carry food, water and camping equipment.

What is the group size? We were on a private tour, but if you go with a group, be sure to ask about the group size. The larger groups on the trail tended to be noisy and experience more delays.

What do they do with garbage? You are going to go through a lot of food and water on the trail. Make sure your tour company pays their porters to carry your garbage out, instead of dumping it or burning it on the mountain. There is a lot of garbage on Rinjani – please don’t add to it!

Who runs the company? What is their story? We love to travel with private companies run by local people. They tend to care deeply about the environment and the longevity of their business and less about earning a quick buck.

Request trekking poles. We had never trekked with poles before but they were indispensable for this trip. They’ll help keep you upright through the sandy, slippery slopes and will save your knees after hours of steep descents.

Be prepared. The trail will probably be harder than you think. Take your time, stopping every few steps to catch your breath if you need to. If you just keeping taking the next step and then the next, you will eventually make it to the top. Read up on our top hiking tips for beginners for more help.

Be OK with not summiting. Don’t be ashamed to say “no” to the sunrise summit trek. Plenty of people don’t go up! If the first day nearly killed you, stay in your tent and rest. There is plenty of exciting hiking to come without risking injury or exhaustion just to see the summit.

Don’t get too cocky on the descent. The trail down is steep and precarious. It’s easy to slip and fall and even easier to injure your knees. Just because the porters are running down the trail in flip-flops doesn’t mean you have to do it too!

Be respectful. Try to stay aware on the trail, even when you’re exhausted. Let faster hikers go by you and always move over for porters. Remember, they are working while you are there for fun!

Don’t add to the Rinjani litter problem. It’s no secret that there is a lot of garbage on Mount Rinjani. Bring a ziplock bag with you and please pack out your own toilet paper, baby wipes, cigarette butts and other personal garbage. If you want to do more, bring a garbage bag and pick up rubbish along the trail.

Bring as little as possible. If you think you’ll survive without something, leave it behind! You’ll regret the extra weight when you’re on your 1200th metre of ascent for the day!

  • Hat, gloves & scarf (it’s very cold at the top)
  • Good hiking shoes (running shoes are not grippy enough)
  • Headlamp (for the night hike to the summit)
  • One/two sweat-wicking t-shirts
  • One pair of shorts
  • One pair of long pants
  • Toothbrush & toothpaste
  • Sun hat (if you don’t have one make this easy DIY hat )
  • Lip sunscreen (our lips got burned – not a good look)
  • Socks & undies
  • ID and cash for tipping

Optional items:

  • Base layer (it gets freaking cold at the summit)
  • Baby wipes (if you pack them in, pack them out)
  • Soap or hand sanitizer

That’s everything you need to know before you book your Rinjani trekking tour. If we missed something or if you have questions, ask away in the comments section below!

Disclaimer: We were guests of Hajar Trekking for our Rinjani trip. But we would never recommend something we didn’t love ourselves and you know Jarryd and Alesha wouldn’t let us get away with it either!

Wow, this guide is incredibly detailed and informative! I’m planning to tackle Mount Rinjani in 2024 and this guide has already helped me so much in planning my trip. The route descriptions and tips on acclimatization are especially useful. Thank you for sharing your expertise!

The track to Rinjani is getting more and more difficult, bro, after a fairly large earthquake in Lombok, several trekking routes, especially from the lake to the Senaru Crater, were damaged and you need to be careful when climbing because rocks often fall.

thank you for promotion mount rinjani in lombok we hope many hiker come to rinjani.

We are currently in Lombok to do the hike. We went to the park office without guide, they refused to sell tickets. At least now you have to book a guide to enter.

Great post! I did the 27K race of the Rinjani 100 a few months ago. It’s pretty much the same thing only that you race up from Sembalun all the way to the crater rim and back with a cut-off time of 9 hours. It was one tough but incredible adventure! Love the blog, keep it up, guys.

Great article. Having hiked Gunung Rinjani back in my twenties (late 1990’s) with 4 experienced local friends it was interesting to read this report. Back then , we did not encounter a single “western” tourist (only 3 or 4 groups of religious pilgrims) or a single piece of rubbish throughout the 4 days (it was probably off season). We carried all the cooking gear and basic fishing equipment ourselves and had to rely on our most experienced group member to find the few scatterered water holes for our drinking water. Most of us were wearing flipflops though I think – and yes it was pretty hard, but youthful enthousiasm and maybe some guardian angels, made that everything went well and the sore muscles just ignored. With one of the guys I even made the sunrise summit hike, barefoot – too slippery for anything else. We spent a day or two resting and fishing carp until we couldn’t eat any more. The lake is considered sacred and so is a nearby mystic cave – I dearly hope they are still being taken care of….and it has not drowned in rubbish and disrespect. On the end of the last day, we did get a big scare: one of our friends had disappeared – with the owner of the very first and lonely litlle warung, I headed straight back to look for him as it was getting dark. Luckily we found him after about half an our, resting next to the path and suffering from exhaustion. In the end everything turned out fine. I have not been since, but reading this article, I would strongly recommend sticking to the recommendations of the article and please be respectful of this place – it is still considered a sacred place by many and who knows, leaving a silent private little prayer just for yourself will pay off more than leaving rubbish or nad vibes.

P.S. Unfortunately I have lost contact with my Chinese/Indonesian friends from Mataram – IF you are reading this by some huge coincidence, PLEASE contact me by email….

This article very helping. Thank you very much for share

We as Lombok people are very grateful for your advice to give tips to the porters. Their task is very heavy not comparable to their daily wages.

Mount rinjani Reopen Again Sice Mart In Same Time With Event Motogp In Lombok Indonesia, In This April are Many Trekker Do. Just We Share The Tips For You. If you would like To Hike You Have To Book Your Trip In Advance. Cause This yeas used Quota.

Where does your luggage stay during the hike, at the hotel you stayed at the night before the hike or?

Hi JP, thanks for your comment. This is a guest post from our friends over at My Five Acres.

I am gathering that is what happens. You can arrange for you luggage to be stored there as long as you book a night there when you return from the hike. This is what has happened with other hikes we have done in other places. Sorry we can not help you more. Please let us know what your outcome is.

All the best.

I hope I will be there some day.

We hope so too. 🙂

This is Really Help full for me thanks A million

Glad the article was helpful. 🙂

Hi, any idea if mt rinjani is open to climb this year particularly in june?

Hi Joven, we are not too sure. Please contact the tour companies. They will be able to assist you. All the best

hi, have you got the certain information for rinjani open day, our schedule is June 1

Hi Sky, we are not too sure. Please contact the tour companies. They will be able to assist you. All the best

Wow, I did not know this place until I read this article. It makes me want to try.

Glad Jane and Stephen could help. 🙂

I plan to climb Rinjani this April, but I check the National Park website, they say they are still closing the climb until the time that has not been determined, I think this has something to do with the earthquake last July.

Maybe it might be or for the rainy season. Hope you get to climb Rinjani another time. 🙂

THANKS TO THIS POST I was able to do my hike to Mount Rinjani, I recently did a 2 days 1-night hike from the aik berik route(1 of the 4 legal routes), it was only a crater rim trek but its worth every second of it. it was a really spectacular experience!

We got the track and cloud forest waterfalls for ourselves because everyone still doesn’t know about it! the Aik Berik route is still ‘virgin’, clean, and not crowded.

Note: Aik Berik Village is the only available route until 2020, and the route will be closed from January to March, so you only have ONE MONTH to go before the mountain closed due to heavy rains.

FYI Aik berik is the only route you can enjoy on mount Rinjani, it’s not possible to reach the summit and the lake but still, you can enjoy Rinjani from a completely different angle. it is already opened on 19th November 2018 and I suggest you go trekking with an eco-friendly company such as RinjaniFoundation.com since this new company has a mission to alleviate poverty around mount Rinjani. They took care of me and my friends from start to finish, they cook the most delicious Indonesian food! check them out.

Thank you so much for sharing. It sounds like you have a blast. Thanks for all the information.

Thank you very much for share the great article for Mount rinjani Trekking Information, Is very helpful and informative.

Glad the article was helpful. Thank you. 🙂

is the trek open at the begining of october?

Sorry not too sure Alina. You will have to contact the companies. This is a review on a tour one of our writers went on. All the best

Hi there, thanks for the informative article! I’m thinking of doing the Mt Rinjani hike in late October, would it be too cold up there? Also, I’m arriving in Bali on a Wednesday and leaving again on a Sunday. Would that be too little time to get to Lombok, do the trek and get back to Denpasar? Cheers, Angie

Hi Angie, That is exciting for your up coming trip. We are not to sure as we have not done this hike. Please contact Jane over at My Five Acres and she’ll be able to help. Thanks. https://www.myfiveacres.com/

I appreciate your post – it really helped me prepare for doing it. I just got back, and while this is fresh in my mind, here are a few things you left out/glimpsed past that may help others:

-Bring a gaiter/handkerchief/face mask if you can – its lightweight but will protect against the insane amount of dust that will get into your mouth/eyes. I had black boogers every night, someone in my group got a piece of debris in her eye, and my throat was perpetually dry from all of the dust. I’d recommend the gaiter+handkerchief combo to battle sweat and dust. -The porters work so hard. I only know the figure for the guides – 35€/trip (3D/2N). The porters definitely make less. TIP YOUR PORTERS AND GUIDES. Yes, I get it, “well, I paid 1.X million and that should be enough”, and “well, they’re used to this”, is bullshit. The money means so much more to them than it does to you – back at home you’d not flinch at the idea of ordering a cup of coffee for 5€, so why not help a human being who is keeping you safe? -Bring a plastic bag to carry your/other rubbish with you. Especially the last day of the 3D/2B you’re only going down and it’s relatively easy (after your legs are jelly, granted) – if we all pitched in and helped pick up stuff and bring it down, the mountain would be so much cleaner. -Take your time and POUND water. For altitude poisoning, you usually take acetazilomide (diamox) to combat it (that’s what I did for my salkantay trek to machu picchu) but the Indonesians are not as aware – I couldn’t find it anywhere in the country. A natural way to help is to breathe deeply, take your time, and drink water like there’s no tomorrow. It’s not a race – it’s a test of will power!

Thank you so much for your tips and advice for future trekkers. 🙂

hi, thanks for the blog, loved to read it 🙂 I did the 4 day/3 night in 2006, just me and a guide plus a porter, starting from senaru going up the rain forest and coming down again through the savana to sembalun. It was an absolute awesome experience but I wish I had prepared better lol It was early in may and def the wrong time as the nights were brutally cold and the sleeping bag to thin to sleep on the bare ground of the tent. Luckily, I had brought some small heating pads which I put on my belly at night and a survival silver foil, otherwise I would not have made it. Another thing I didn’t know was the heavy rainfall up there at that time of the year, meaning being soaked was the norm starting on day 2 on the climb down the crater… it was always a big challenge to get my sneakers dry again and on the final descent on day 4, I simply gave up and did it in my flip flops like the guys. It rained and I had walk very carefully on the slippery grass that’s why it took us 7 hours to get down! Anyhow, it was a worthwhile experience and I hope to do it again, only this time better prepared. What worries me a bit is that there seems to be a run on rinjani in these days… that’s really bad news, when I went there were hardly any other people… so maybe the wrong time was the right time in the end 🙂

So glad you had a great time. Sounds like you had a great adventure. 🙂

I am going to this Mt. Rinjani trekking on this Saturday, 7th July 18 and this is my first time on trekking. Thanks for your useful information and would prepare for it. Anybody can advice, is there any telecom service provider (mobile phone line) during the journey to the summit?

Glad we could help. Jane wrote a great article for us. Not too sure about the telecom service. Maybe drop Jane any email over at My Five Acres. All the best https://www.facebook.com/myfiveacres https://www.myfiveacres.com/

Extremely helpful article, many thanks guys.

I am traveling in August to Lombok and for sure will try with Mt Rinjani, and will definitely contact Hajar.

The only thing we’ve been told it’s full of trash….such a pity

Hi Alvin, could you please let us know how it was at this time of the year? I like to know about temperatures at night and how many people there were. Thanks in advance

Thanks for the information! I am traveling through Indonesia for two months (so my bagpack is VERY big!). Do you know if it is possible to leave some things at the hostel in Sembalun or I will have to carry my entire bagpack to Mt Rinjani?!?!

There definitely would be Maria. If not at your accommodation, I am sure you will be able to leave it at the tour company’s shop.

KINGS of the MOUNTAIN! Rinjani Trekking Club recently experienced the challenging climb to the top of the Rinjani mountain and would like to salute the fantastic supports extended by porter who help tourist and visitor achieve new heights.

Their incredible fitness allows them to climb, bare feet or with flip flops, and even sometimes run, with heavy loads of equipment and food to ensure the best comfort for visitors. When in difficulty in the last few hundred meters to the top, they patiently wait for you; when hungry, they cook for you; when tired they prepare your camp so that you can rest.

When you came across some groups of courageous climbers not using the support of the porter, you can be assured that their experience of the Mount Rinjani is much more demanding and somehow less enjoyable, since they do not have the comfort of climbing unloaded nor the company of truly warm and welcoming sasak people.

Hello, I’m Jamal

Thank you so much for your information for the trekking , its was helpful article for other climbers ,

Thanks again hope you’re well and good day

Glad we could help. Thanks

Very helpful article. Thank you so much Alesha & Jarryd 🙂 I’m going on 23-28 JUNE 2018. Coming sooooon~so nervous and excited now!!

So awesome. Have a great time. 🙂

Nice information on Rinjani. I don’t think you can get 80 USD for a 3D2N trek in Rinjani, maybe 2D1N to crater rim or something is possible.

Lovely article, very helpful!!

I’m dying to this hike; hopefully I’ll get to it this spring.

What do you reckon is the earliest the hike can be done after the rainy season?

Thanks so much for ready Ester. Our friend Jane wrote this article for us. It does sound like a wonderful hike. Your best option is to message her on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/myfiveacres/ . She’ll be happy to answer you questions. Happy travels. 🙂

Hi I’m Ronie From Rinjani – Lombok Mount Rinjani, Lombok’s highest peak ( 3726 m asl or 12,200 ft. ), draws religious pilgrim and adventure tourist alike. its crater frames a lake, which is 5 miles wide and known as segara anak, which means the lake of child. this crater also contains an active volcano, Gunung Baru.

Thank you for the information Ronie. 🙂

I was lucky enough to hike it in 1997 before the hoards of tourists discovered it. Spent one night in Senaru and went up from there. With no previous hiking experience, just a friend and one guide that we hired, it was physically challenging but SO worth it! I was lucky enough to hardly see many people on the mountain. I don’t think I’d like to do it now.

Wow Julie, what an experience. So happy you got there in the early years. Thank you for your comment. 🙂

Thanks you for sharing your experience. One day I will hike mount rinjani too.

Us too Mickel. It looks amazing. Jane and Stephen wrote a great article for us.

wooow….!That is a wonderfull experienced trek in rinjani Mountain and is a perfect information about All of Rinjani Trekking activity.

I’ve read all the climbers blogs that have been to Rinjani but the most complete info I’ve seen is on this blog. congratulations and success for you.

Thank you so much. Glad this post could help Herman. Jane and Stephen had a great time. Happy travels

Waow really nice article and good experienced. Thank you for your sharing

This looks like a great hike. I recently did a fantastic hike around the crater lake of Quitaloa in Ecuador; an exhilarating adventure in which I also had the chance to soak up plenty of local culture and knowledge.

It does doesn’t it. Jane and Stephen had a blast. We can not wait to trek it now. Your hike in Ecuador sounds amazing. We were in South America for most of the year but unfortunately didn’t see anything of Ecuador. We will have to go back. Happy travels Mark.

This was a brutal hike, but definitely worth it. I actually got a black eye on the hike down. 🙁 It was also before a 3-day music festival, so not a good look! haha

Oh no. How did you get a black eye? We are looking forward to trekking Mt Rinjani one day. Hope you had a blast at the music festival. Lest the trek wasn’t after the festival. 🙂

It’s very easy to find a private taxi or a motorbike to rent at Bangsal Harbour.

Expect to pay around 400,000 IDR total for a private taxi to Senaru. You can also rent motorbikes/scooters in Bangsal for approximately 60,000 IDR per day.

The distance from Bangsal Harbour to Mount Rinjani jump-off point in Senaru is 60km and it’s approximately a 2-hour drive.

WHERE TO STAY BEFORE & AFTER THE TREK

Blue Mountain Cottage is a small homestay in Senaru village which is the beginning point of the Rinjani trekking tour.

The a/c rooms are only 100,000 IDR per night. With two people to a room that’s the same price as a coffee where I am from!

The owner of the homestay was rather humorous and was tremendously helpful in organizing our Mount Rinjani trekking. At this point, I was super excited about our incoming adventure!

WHERE TO BOOK YOUR MOUNT RINJANI TOUR

There are dozens of tour companies that can organize the Mount Rinjani trekking located in the main towns on Lombok including Sengiggi, Mataram, Senaru, and Kuta Lombok.

However, from my experience, it’s best to organize your trip well in advance and the best option is to book online with a professional and experienced tour operator and guarantee a fixed price for your trek.

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE TOUR:

  • Return transfers by air-conditioned coach
  • Entrance fee to Gunung Rinjani National Park
  • Licensed English-speaking mountain guide
  • Local porters
  • 3 meals a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner), snacks, fruits, and unlimited water
  • All camping equipment (double size tent, sleeping bag, air bed mattress, etc.)

WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED IN THE TOUR:

  • Personal expenses
  • Domestic/international flights
  • Meals before and after the trek departure
  • Helicopter in case of an accident
  • Tips and gratuities

The Mt. Rinjani trek requires you to have a good level of fitness and the ability to walk long distances. It’s also strongly recommended to have travel insurance that covers high-altitude hiking.

MOUNT RINJANI TREKKING – DAY 1

The Mount Rinjani adventure began early morning when a driver and our guide met us at the homestay in Senaru to take us to the starting point.

We piled into the back of his ute and drove through some villages for around an hour before arriving at the official entrance office of Mount Rinjani National Park.

We had to provide our names and passport number as a safety requirement so everyone was accounted for at the end of the trek. And then we were off. With a clear view of the volcano in the distance, I was anxious to see what surreal landscapes lay ahead.

The first three hours of the trek were quite mellow, and some thick fog made its way up the mountainside, cooling us down with its breeze. We stopped to rest for an hour while the porters were quick to whip up a big serving of nasi goreng for lunch!

HIKING TO THE MOUNT RINJANI CRATER RIM

It was a further three hours of trekking through some slightly harder terrain before reaching the Mount Rinjani crater rim. This is where we set up camp for one night. Well, by we I mean the porters since they insisted on setting up our tents and preparing dinner for us!

We wandered down a ridge trail to find a good viewpoint for sunset overlooking Mount Rinjani and we were spoilt with an incredible view of the lake and another volcano inside the lake – volcano inception!

The sun was setting behind the opposite ridge from where we were standing, saturating the sky with bright reds and warm, delicate oranges.

Looking back at the campsite was an unreal sight of colorful tents perched on the Mount Rinjani Crater Rim. Talk about a room with a view!

Our guide informed us that we were to start the trek to the summit of Mt Rinjani at 2:30 am the next morning. So, we enjoyed the meal the porters prepared for us and then made our way to the tents to rest up for the big finale.

MOUNT RINJANI TREKKING – DAY 2

Before I knew it I was being woken up by our guide, handing me a banana pancake through the zipper of my tent. It was 2 am and time to start the hike to the summit for sunrise.

One hour in and the five of us had already managed to split up. I must admit, it was not an easy climb. The temperature was below freezing and the wind was howling across the narrow ridge that we had to walk across.

There were lava tubes and large rocks to take cover out of the wind to warm up. The last kilometer to the summit of Mount Rinjani was the most challenging as the ground surface was covered in loose rocks… I was literally taking one step forward, then sliding back down two steps.

The sun was just poking up over the horizon as I reached the summit three hours later. My fingers were frozen and I was struggling to take photos, hoping for the sun to warm me up soon. The five of us regrouped at the summit and we climbed down into the Mount Rinjani crater to get some shots.

It seemed the majority of other trekkers had already started to descend as the cold temperatures and strong winds were almost unbearable. We were the last group to descend from the summit of Mount Rinjani… but it was definitely worth spending more time at the top to witness the sheer beauty as the sun lit up the inside of the volcano.

MOUNT RINJANI CRATER

We arrived back down at our campsite on the crater rim at around 9 am. We had to eat breakfast quickly before making our way down into the crater towards the lake.

At this point, my leg muscles were tightening up, which was not a good feeling knowing we had another full day’s hike ahead.

2 to 3 hours later we made it down to Mount Rinjani Lake where there is a natural volcanic hot spring. We spent some time here to recharge our batteries and to shower off the sweat!

Our porters once again prepared us some mie goreng noddles for lunch and then we set off to climb to the crater rim on the opposite side of Mount Rinjani lake.

The views on this side of the crater were spectacular. The blue lake was glowing and the dense jungle created a naturally moody scene. It’s hard to believe there was another volcano… growing inside a larger volcano… which was then surrounded by a lake. I felt like I was on a Jurassic Park movie set!

HIKING OUT OF THE CRATER

We made it to the top of the Mount Rinjani crater rim 2 to 3 hours later, which is where we thought we were camping for the night… but it so happened our porters had continued on walking down to another campsite to set up.

We were pretty disappointed because we wanted to see the sunset from the Mount Rinjani crater rim, but we didn’t have much choice but to follow our guides to the next camp.

We trekked down for another 1.5 hours before reaching the campsite. Upon arrival, I was absolutely exhausted, so I skipped dinner and went straight to bed.

MOUNT RINJANI TREK – DAY 3

The following morning was the last day of the trek and it was a beautiful walk down through the shaded forest. I spotted lots of monkeys swinging around impressively from tree to tree, wishing I could swing around with them!

The end of the trek ended at the road that lead us down to our homestay. We were all so hyped to have accomplished the 3-day Mount Rinjani trek and we tipped our guide and porters for their efforts!

Trekking Mt. Rinjani is one of the hardest but best adventures I have been on to date and it was a truly unforgettable experience!

mt rinjani crater rim trek

Girl Eat World

A girl's adventure in food and travel around the world, mount rinjani trekking guide: how-to with photos and detailed information.

Reading “Into Thin Air” by Jon Krakauer piqued my curiosity about mountain climbing. A few years later, though it is in no way comparable to climbing Everest in Krakauer’s book, I finally went on my first-ever mountain climb!

We trekked to the Crater Rim of Mount Rinjani in Lombok, Indonesia as part of a 2D1N trip. Below you will find a detailed log of my trip – what to expect, how the trek was, and what you need to pack and prepare for the trip.

Mount Rinjani Trekking

Getting to Mount Rinjani

Mount Rinjani is an active volcano located on a small island in Indonesia called Lombok . The easiest way to reach the mountain is to fly directly to Lombok International Airport (Airport Code: LOP) and then taking a long drive to the foot of Mount Rinjani. This drive takes about 2.5 – 3 hours, going through Mataram and circling half the island before finally getting to Rinjani. It features long windy roads on cliffs with tons of wild monkeys on the side of the road.

If you can’t fly directly to Lombok, the best way is to transit through Jakarta or fly into Bali and take a boat or short flight out to Lombok. However, this would take more travel time and you might have to stay extra overnight in Bali or Jakarta.

When is the best time to trek Mount Rinjani?

Mount Rinjani Hiking trails are closed from 1 January to 31 March every year due to monsoon season, which tends to bring heavy rain and renders the trails dangerous. I did my trek at the end of April when the weather was great! There was no rain and the sun was not too hot either.

Can I climb Mount Rinjani without a guide?

Officially, no. You aren’t supposed to climb Mount Rinjani without a certified guide. I know some people would attempt to circumvent this, but I personally don’t recommend it. It’s one of the few ways locals are making a living, especially after a difficult few years they’ve been facing – in 2018, Lombok was hit by a large earthquake which damaged the area greatly and dwindled tourism down to a fraction of what it used to be. Then, obviously in 2020 the pandemic hit them hard too.

Deciding on the Trek Route: Should I start from Senaru or Sembalun?

How do you choose between Senaru and Sembalun? This was the first question I had in mind while planning the trip, and I couldn’t seem to find any good answer for.

It’s actually very simple – if you only have three days to spare, you can only go for a 2D1N trip and you have to choose between Sembalun and Senaru since they are located on different sides of the mountain. So here are the pro and cons:

  • If you want to summit in the 2D1N trip , then you should be going via Sembalun, which features an easier climb (mostly flat) through the grasslands to the base of the summit. The downside is that you would be walking under the sun the entire time. Your trek would cover Sembalun > Summit > back down to Sembalun.
  • If you are absolutely sure you WILL NOT attempt to summit in 2D1N , you should go through Senaru, and your trek would then cover Senaru > Crater Rim > back down to Senaru. The hike will take you through a steeper, non-stop climb through the rainforest, and a fairly difficult rocky climb in the last leg. But it’s a more beautiful and shaded route than Sembalun. You cannot reach the summit in two days if you go through Senaru though.

However, if you have time to do a 3D2N trip – and this is what most people choose, then you don’t have to worry about choosing as you would be hitting both sides anyway. The popular route is to go from Sembalun > Summit > Crater Rim > Senaru. However, if you have the option to choose and are still wondering whether to start from Sembalun or Senaru for the 3D2N trip, it comes down to when you want to summit. If you want to summit earlier in the trip, then choose Sembalun. If not, then choose Senaru.

Where to stay in Senaru

Before the trek, we stayed in Senaru village at a lodge called Pondok Senaru . It was included in the tour package with the trekking company we booked with. This lodge is very convenient as it’s located right next to the entrance to the waterfalls (which I will write about below), but the rooms are VERY basic and there was no A/C, though we did not need it since the weather was quite mild in the mountains.

Review of our Mount Rinjani Trek Guide

Mount Rinjani Trekking - With Hallo Trekker at the top of Crater Rim

We booked our trip with Hallo Trekker  and I have nothing but praises for them. They arranged everything for us from airport transport to accommodation, meals, and porters.

Our guide’s name is Mr. Sap aka Kecap, nicknamed for his love of the Indonesian sweet soy condiment. We were also joined by Hans from Hallo Trekker as he wanted to take pictures of the climb. Both Kecap and Hans were amazing on the trip. Kecap is extremely experienced and helped one of my teammates who needed more assistance to climb and descend. He even carried her backpack which was a huge help for us. Hans helped to guide us on the way down and sorted out logistics of our trip. I loved how they cared about the mountain too, making sure we didn’t leave any trash behind.

On our last day, they ensured we descended punctually as we had a 7:30 pm flight back to Singapore on the same day, and the journey from Senaru to the airport takes 3 hours. We were pressed for time on the descent so they picked us up by scooter on the last 500m and had the car ready to take us to the airport. Thanks to their excellent planning, we got to the airport with ample time for our flight.

How much does it cost to climb Mount Rinjani with Hallo Trekker?

A lot of people asked me how much the climb costs, so here is the breakdown of costs per person in Singapore Dollars . Keep in mind that back then, Hallo Trekker had just started and they may have adjusted their prices since then.

  • SGD $250 (US$180) – 2D1N Tour Package including night-before hotel stay.
  • SGD $30 (US$22) – Tips for the guide and porters. If you are going for a longer trip you may want to give more.
  • SGD $16 – Travel Insurance, which you need to buy yourselves.

Where can I book Mount Rinjani Trek online?

If you want to know where else you can book a Mount Rinjani guide online directly, you can book through Klook:

How Difficult is Climbing Mount Rinjani?

Mount Rinjani, the second-highest volcano in Indonesia, is notoriously challenging to climb . The one concern I had in mind was whether I was fit enough to climb Mount Rinjani. Having done the trek myself, I think the crater rim trek is still doable for a person with an average fitness level.

Here is a background on my own fitness level – I would never say I am a super fit person but I’m not totally sedentary either. I’m usually able to complete a 5 to 10K run and I had been doing the Barre Method (which consists of cardio and strength training) twice a week for about six months prior to the climb. I think this gave me just enough strength to complete the trip with no assistance from others aside from directional guidance from Kecap.

It was not by any means an easy climb but most of the struggle for me was actually a mental struggle . I had never done a long climb before and I didn’t know what to expect. Think about it this way – a half marathon is definitely taxing, but it still ends in three hours or less. Climbing Mount Rinjani takes 2-3 times as long and you get progressively exhausted with each stop. Thankfully Kecap and my teammates were very encouraging and this was what kept me going all the way to the top.

Keep in mind that you also have to bring your own bag which usually means an extra 5-10kg of weight depending on how good of a packer you are. And this can feel very very heavy when you are tired!

Which brings me to my next point.

What should I bring to the Rinjani trek? The Rinjani Packing List

Some points to note: This trip happened at the end of April when the weather was great (no rain) and I was able to pack very lightly. Also, it was a 2D1N trip and we did not summit . If you plan to summit or plan on going on a longer trip then you need to adjust accordingly by bringing more layers, a thicker jacket, etc.

The Essential, Must-have Gears

  • A good backpack is a must , so you don’t hurt your back. I used a 35L North Face backpack with a lumbar pad and support. With all the items listed below the bag weighed around 6kg. Add two 1.5L water bottles and it ended up being about 7-8kg.
  • Hiking Shoes – I used my 3-year-old running shoes, which is a Nike Lunarglide , and I could have done with more tread. It got slippery in some parts of the trail and I actually fell flat on my butt TWICE. Since this trek, I’ve gotten myself a pair of trusty hiking boots Columbia Newton Ridge Plus II, which I used for my New Zealand trip and I highly recommend!
  • Walking Pole / Stick – This is important, do NOT underestimate the power of a walking stick. I’ve never thought about using it before but now I  know I would not have lasted without the walking stick. It only costs $20 on average and really comes in handy for balance and support. You could also check if your guide is able to supply you with a pair.
  • Socks – Well-fitting socks are so essential. I wore a thicker pair of socks from Adidas that did not slip around inside my shoes, so it does not cause blisters later on. Make sure yours fits well too!
  • Clothes for the climb – It’s going to be hot and humid so I recommend wearing something thin. I wore a loose tank top, a light sports bra, and leggings. Any additional layers got too hot during the climb.
  • Clothes for night/sleeping time – I packed a fleece pajama similar to this and a basic cotton shirt to sleep in.
  • A very light, water-resistant jacket to fend off the cold mist once you’ve reached higher altitude. You have to remember that Rinjani is located in Indonesia, which a tropical country not far below the equator and this means it will be humid and hot. I recommend not to bring a thick jacket. You can just bring a thinner jacket and layer as needed. I used Uniqlo Light Pocketable Parka  and found them sufficient for the climb.

Additional Clothing

  • An extra jacket for nighttime. My roommate Jessica kindly lent me her Denali North Face Jacket, which is an excellent fleece jacket. It might actually be too warm for the Crater Rim though. I get cold easily but I was able to sleep with just this jacket and a thin cotton t-shirt underneath.
  • A spare set of clothes for the next day. For me, this just meant another set of cotton shirt, leggings, and sports bra.
  • Small towel to use throughout the climb because you will sweat.
  • Extra socks in case your previous day’s socks got wet.
  • Fresh underwear , because of course, you need them.
  • Flip flops to change into once you are at the campsite if you can’t be bothered to lace up your shoes each time you get out of your tent. This also came in handy for our Lombok waterfall side quest! I just brought along my go-to pair of slim Havaianas.
  • Sun Block with SPF50.  You will be high up on the mountain where the sun will be extra strong, so you need to protect your skin especially your face. My favorite face sunblock is this water-based sun lotion by Innisfree.
  • Insect Repellent . I didn’t have problems with insects, but this is always good just in case.
  • Hand Sanitizer Wipe . There will be  no running water once you get up there so being diligent about hygiene is important.
  • Biodegradable Wet tissue for wiping hands and cleaning your body. There are no shower facilities either so this is your only way of cleaning yourself!
  • Biodegradable toilet paper aka Camper’s Toilet Paper for your toilet business. Our tour did provide toilet paper but it was not biodegradable.
  • Medicine  like Aspirin and Activated Charcoal in case of food poisoning – also good to have when traveling around South East Asia in general.
  • Plaster / Band Aids for any small wounds or to protect your toes from blistering.

Other Stuff

  • High calorie and high protein snacks like chocolate, nuts, and cookies. During the trek, you will be served Indonesian food which I love (I’m Indonesian btw) but consist mostly of fried carbs.
  • A powerbank in case your phone runs out of battery. I brought my trusty 10,000 mAh Mi powerbank, which I highly recommend. I even use it for regular non-travel use.
  • A plastic trash bag to store your trash in. The trash situation in Mount Rinjani is bad. Don’t contribute to it.
  • A 1 – 1.5L Water bottle  – it is hot and humid in this part of the world, so yes you will sweat and you will need to hydrate.
  • Torch for night time , or any source of light for your tent. I just used my iPhone Torch and found it sufficient.

More Trekking Tips & Tricks!

  • Before the hike, put a plaster/band-aid on your big toes and small/pinky toes  since these are the parts that are prone to blisters. By putting a plaster over it, you’re protecting it from developing blisters later on. You’ll thank me later.
  • Bring sufficient high-calorie snacks . I cannot stress this more. You will get more hungry than usual. And eat a good breakfast before each trek.
  • Last but not least, pack SUPER lightly! A 7kg bag may not seem very heavy to you now, but they would be when you are six hours into the climb, on all fours scaling slippery rocks. Don’t bring ANYTHING extra.

Mount Rinjani Trek Detailed Guide and Time Milestones

Start: Senaru (600m elevation) End: Crater Rim (2600m elevation)

Day 0 – Lombok Waterfalls in Senaru

If you arrive in Lombok with at least 2-3 hours to spare before sunset, you might want to visit the waterfalls. We stayed overnight at Pondok Senaru which is a very basic room accommodation with no A/C, but it’s right next door to the waterfall entrance!

Mount Rinjani Trekking - Walking to Tiu Kelep

This is quite an easy walk with paved paths. There are two waterfalls to visit, Air Terjun Sindang Gila (Slightly Crazy Waterfalls) and Air Terjun Tiu Kelep (Tiu Kelep Waterfalls). Many seem to prefer the first one, which is quite close to the entrance of the park, but I think the second and further one is way more beautiful.

Mount Rinjani Trekking

Be sure to wear flip flops since you will be crossing some streams on foot. The streams are quite shallow – at the deepest it reached just below my knees. The current isn’t very strong but you still need to be careful not to lose your flip flops while crossing! It happened to us a few times.

Mount Rinjani Trekking

On the way back, the boys opted to walk into a dark tunnel between the two waterfalls. Kyle and I noped out of this and chose to do the normal walk instead, but it seems pretty exciting from what they told me.

Day 1 – The Rinjani climb (9.5 hours)

We (or I) took our sweet time to go up since I was super excited and was taking tons of pictures.

Mount Rinjani Trekking

The walk was nice and easy from Senaru through the park entrance and all the way to Pos Extra. We were lucky to spot a few black monkeys high up in the trees, though only for a split second so I had no time to take pictures of them. Between Pos Extra and Pos 2 though, it started getting very steep. I also got super hungry (my stomach were rumbling) and regretted not eating enough for breakfast. Be sure to load up for breakfast!

Mount Rinjani Trekking

We stopped for lunch at Pos 2. This is also the point where we started noticing mist / cloud looming above us. It was getting pretty cold after resting for over an hour, and we all put on our light jackets before resuming our climb, but that was a mistake as our bodies quickly warmed up again while going up. We all took off our jackets within 15 minutes.

Mount Rinjani Trekking

Not long before Pos 3, the mist were getting thicker and thicker. We noticed the trees surrounding us are getting shorter, which typically signals the end of the forest is to come shortly. Sure enough, we soon found ourselves walking in the open air among bushes and tall grass.

Mount Rinjani Trekking

Kecap warned us that the climb would get even steeper and rockier after Pos 3. Already pretty tired by then, this was not something I wanted to hear. It was hard to imagine anything harder than the climb we just did. We stayed at Pos 3 for about 20 minutes and was visited by a hungry grey monkey, whom we shared our snacks with, before finally getting off our butts and making the strenuous climb up to Camp Site.

Mount Rinjani Trekking

And.. it turns out Kecap wasn’t kidding when he said climb would not be easy. The first half of this leg was muddy, wet, and surrounded by tall grass and shrubberies that are about waist to shoulder high. We got to another Pos Extra and had to take shelter there for a few minutes since it started raining.

As soon as the rain stopped, we continued our way to the second half of the climb, which is a steep and intimidating path made of rocks, which I will from now on refer to as the “Rock Wall”.

Mount Rinjani Trekking

It got so steep that I ditched the walking stick and started climbing the rocks on all fours. Not going to lie, this was the hardest part of the climb for me. I definitely had thoughts about quitting but I also realized that we are so far up the mountain that I had no exit plan except to keep on pushing through. So push through I did.

Finally, after what seemed like a never ending rocks after rocks, we reached a flat area and the camp sites started peeking through the mountains. We’ve finally arrived at Crater Rim!

Mount Rinjani Trekking

We found our tents already set up, complete with a makeshift toilet! The porters had also prepared a warm snack of banana fritters for us.

Mount Rinjani Trekking

It was quite foggy so we couldn’t see much of the lake but we expected this, seeing how thick the fog was during the climb. After cleaning myself with wet tissues (there are no shower facilities here) and changing into Pajamas, dinner was served and we went to bed soon after.

Day 2 – The descent (6.5 hours)

We woke up bright and early at 6:00AM, in time for the sunrise at 6:15AM. The valley was still foggy though, so we didn’t get as clear of a view of the lakes as I would have wanted, but it was still beautiful.

Mount Rinjani Trekking

We were served breakfast with hot tea and quickly packed up to begin our descent since we had a 7:30pm flight to catch. Thankfully, the weather gods were on our side – it was much much nicer than the climb yesterday!

It might be a little unintuitive but the descent for me was actually a lot harder than climbing up. We basically just followed the exact same route back. Though it took us three hours less than the way up, I was completely drained by the end of the trip and my knees, calves and thigh were so sore.

Mount Rinjani Trekking

Descending the rocky path down was not easy and could be dangerous. We saw a group of four porters rushing past us and going up while carrying nothing, which was unusual since porters usually carry a lot of stuff with them. That’s when we learned through Kecap that someone behind us had slipped and broken their legs on the rocky path. The porters were going up to rescue him/her!

Due to morning dew, the ground inside the forest was soft and wet. Not only do you need to think about each of your next steps but also execute quickly and confidently to prevent slipping. I definitely landed on my butt several times while descending but thankfully we were already inside the jungle where the ground is soft and nothing was sharp, so I wasn’t hurt aside of my bruised ego 😛

The Amazing Mount Rinjani Porters

During the trek, we were constantly skipped by porters carrying heavy weights on their shoulder. Moreover, these porters were wearing simple blue and white flip-flops that are commonly found throughout Indonesia. Hans informed me that these porters usually carry 40kg of weight, 30kg if they are an apprentice porter.

For the apprentice porters in training, their shoulder would bleed before they develop hard skin to sustain the weight. The more experienced porters can even run down the mountain with ease in their flip flops! Just amazing. And there I was struggling in my cushy Nike shoes and 7kg backpack…

Dogs in Mount Rinjani

Dogs in Rinjani - Mount Rinjani Trekking

Around Lombok, I kept seeing tons of stray dogs living alongside villagers. The dogs seem to also branch out all the way to the mountain. We were joined by a few dogs hiking with us, and we saw a few strays at our lunch spots begging for scraps. I gave in and fed them food of course… I can’t say no to those cute eyes!

We even saw a dog at the crater rim (the one pictured in the top two pictures above) and she definitely hiked with way more ease than me…

My thoughts after the trip

I have to admit, climbing Mount Rinjani was a very difficult trek for me. I was completely drained by the end of the trip. On a scale of 0 to 100% energy level, I was probably down to 5% during the last hour of descent. We were all super sore the next day and can barely walk. I think this is the sorest I have ever been in my entire life!

However, definitely no regrets. The feeling of finally reaching our campsite after a long climb was unbelievable. Not to mention the lifetime memories made with my Team Rinjani friends: Kyle, Shekhar, Abhilash, and Seba.

I would love to come back here someday and attempt summit once I am more fit.

Alright, let’s wrap up this blog with an amazing video made by my friend and teammate Kyle Francia from our trek, filmed using our iPhones. I still watch this video every few months and it makes me very happy and nostalgic.

… and precious illustration my manager Rohan drew for us while we were out of office climbing.

If you are considering climbing Mount Rinjani – I really hope this post helped you. Feel free to reach out and ask me questions in the comments section below!

Still have time (and energy) after conquering Mount Rinjani?

If you are in Lombok for an extended period of time, I recommend checking out the Gilis as well for some island getaway! It’s only a short ferry ride away from Lombok.  You can read all about Gili Trawangan here  – how to get there and what you can do.

Incredible Sunset from Gili Trawangan

Or, if you’re still hungry for another active volcano, you can head over to Bali and trek Mount Batur. It’s a much easier climb than Rinjani! You can read my experience of trekking Mount Batur here .

  • May 12, 2022

Wow…!!!! That An Amazing Storry and memorable Experience you Went Do it.thank For Share.

  • February 12, 2020

Hello Melissa! Thankyou for your sharing your incredible experience on Mount Rinjani! it helped me went through the decision making! It was really a hard hike! I ended up trekking with Rinjani Foundation if you happens to know them, they gave me the link of this page as I asked them about where I should read the detailed requirement to do the hike, I ended up loving your content!

hey Cindy, thanks for the kind words 🙂 did you do the summit or the crater rim? I am wondering if the summit is open yet.

  • August 28, 2019

Will be gg Lombok next month. Did a climb at mt kk 3 yrs back. Really interested in this but I haven’t been doing this for 3 yrs.. 3d2n seems just right for a return climber who’s out for a 40 plus solo traveller? Anyway Pls intro who to ctc

  • August 30, 2019

Hi Anthony, I described in detail in the post above what you can expect from the hike. I’ve also left a contact of my Rinjani guide.

  • August 15, 2019

I liked how you describe the climb in details. Thanks for sharing your gearlist.

  • July 12, 2019

Best article about trekking Rinjani mountain in Lombok island and amazing pictures, thank you for sharing and have good journey

  • April 28, 2019

Melissa, hi, is the trail always visible? In other words, is it always clear where to go, or in some places the trail is hidden under grass/bushes?

I am an experienced hiker, and I want to do it alone, without a guide, will I be able to find trail?

  • April 29, 2019

hi, I did the old track which is no longer open since the big earthquake, so I can’t speak for the new Air Berik track. For the old track, it was a mix of very obvious tracks to bushes but if you are an experienced hiker, you probably can do it yourself. You still need to pay the national park fee entrance though.

  • March 14, 2019

Hi I’m a fairly experienced backpacker, I live at 7,000 ft elevation and I am just trying to get a solid gauge of how challenging this trek actually is. I know everyone has different fitness levels, and not many people are used to trekking with heavy packs but it sounds like it might not actually be that bad especially considering that a lot of the supplies are carried for you by others? Do you know if they set up groups based on fitness ability or anything like this?

Hey Katelyna, sounds like you will be ok. Elevation shouldnt be an issue, it just involves some really steep parts just before reaching the rim. But if you are confident of your fitness level then you should be fine. I don’t think they set up groups based on fitness but maybe you can request a private group if you don’t want to be joined by others.

  • March 7, 2019

A very nice post, I hope your post can inspire many people so that Mount Rinjani is getting more visitors in future.

All of team from Dhyns Rinjani Hiking say thanks you so much

  • November 18, 2017

Hi Mellissa, Congratulations for writing a very good detailed blog on your first trekking experience. It was fun reading it. Your description about the itineraries, stuff to carry, and things to take care, added by your personal experience along with trek photographs, made it a vivid blog post with all the possible things one could think while planning for their first trek to Rinjani. I am from India and have never been to Indonesia. Nevertheless, I like trekking. Therefore, I will come back and read your blog again whenever I plan to go to Bali or any other nearby place. Keep writing 🙂 🙂

  • March 27, 2018

Thanks Jyoti! I hope you made it to Rinjani!

  • November 9, 2017

Thanks for the info. The video is breathtaking. I have plan to hike in June for a 4d/3n. Thanks for the info on what to bring along.

  • September 21, 2017

Was great information for other trekker they can improve condition and budget for trip to mount rinjani

  • September 18, 2017

I climbed rinjani in May 2017 (2 days 1 night to the summit) and this guide helped so much! Best advice I have is to wear comfortable but lightweight shoes and if you are doing the summit climb, wear layers! I got super hot while climbing and took off like 3 jackets but then it was freezing at the top. Such an amazing experience, my friend and I even got little tattoos of rinjani afterwards because it was so special.

I am glad you found this guide helpful Margo! and congrats on sumitting!

  • May 21, 2020

Dear friend

Thank you very much for sharing the great information,. This article is very helpful.

  • September 15, 2017

What an amazing blog, thank you. I’m looking to do this thus year.

Thank you 😀 Good luck!

  • September 4, 2017

Hey Melissa, What an awesome article! I am going from Vancouver in Feb. 2018 to meet my buddy in Singapore, then spend 5-6 days on Lombok. Just considering whether to do the same trek you did while there. Were there people trekking on their own or is everyone on a guided trip? Thank you for sharing this experience.

Hey Dan, it seems that most people had a guide and a porter for at least the tents. I didn’t see anyone carrying their own tent. I think it’s possible to climb without a guide, but I discourage it unless you are a very experienced climber.

  • August 31, 2017

This is on my to do list! By the way, Semeru is another fantastic volcano to climb – although very challenging as well!

  • August 18, 2017

Howdy.. Melissa. What a great experience you have! So inspiring.. Do you probably have recommendation of any type of food in Lombok? Thanks

  • August 20, 2017

Hey Anies! I actually did not have time to eat much in Lombok. Food was provided in trek and we were basically just in and out of the mountain, so unfortunately I don’t have much to recommend in this area.

I came across your blog by chance. Thank you for sharing your experience. I am in my 50s and lead a rather sedentary lifestyle. Before reading your blog I was all gung ho to go early thinking it’s a walk in a park. Now i need to reassess and most likely need to put in some training before i attempt the hike. Thanks again.

Hey Audrey, I am glad the post helped. I hope you do decide to climb Rinjani though once you are ready! It is very beautiful and challenging.

This is just info from me, may be useful for all friends who want to climb to Mount Rinjani.

Best regard Guide rinjani

  • June 15, 2017

Hi Melissa, thank you so much for sharing your trekking experience on Rinjani with all of us who aspire to conquer this hike … so happy to stumble across your blog and absolutely informative to my research as we are planning our trip to Lombok. A funny and odd question I have for you is what’s the insect ie. mosquito condition up there like ?? Did you get bitten by anything during the climb ??? Did you bring a head lamp or hand torch for the hike ?? We are trying to minimize the amount of stuff to lug up the mountain since we will be doing the summit hike so the less the better… I’m also debating between a couple trekking agencies not sure which is more reliable since I have nothing to reference to. So you would strongly rooting for Hallo and their service ? Thanks again for the amazing detailed description with images of your adventure !!

Hey Celi – I didn’t encounter any mosquitos up there or any other insects.

I didn’t need a torch since we didn’t climb when the sun wasn’t out but I guess if you do the summit it would come in handy since you’ll be climbing at dawn.

I had great experience with Hallo Trekker when I went, but I have been told recently by a friend that one of their guides was always asking for tips so it could get kind of annoying. But aside of that there was no safety concerns.

Hi I’m from rinjani and I would like to say this’s amazing blog for who want to know about rinjani trekking.. That all you write in the blog is very correct.. And for pleasure if it able I want to joint the disscusion with all of you.. Thanks..

  • June 13, 2017

Thanks for this post I really enjoyed reading this! I have been thinking about doing the trek in October and I think you have sold it to me, everything you have said is exactly how I imagined it would be 🙂 just need to decide if I think I could actually make it to the summit or not…

I’m glad you found it useful! I also recommend checking the weather in October. I did this climb in April.

Hey Melissa .. It’s such a wonderful experience you had. I agree with a quote “It is NOT the mountain we conquer but ourselves”

Too bad I didn’t read your blog before I hike, but to be honest, I think you are 200% right about the trail. I just reached the bottom 4 hours ago. The last rocky part is no kidding but the view at the crater rim is spectacular. Glad you made it, must be an unforgettable memory.

  • April 25, 2017

Hi Melissa, your blog is very insightful, helpful and the photos are just beautiful! I am so tempted. I was considering to go up the rim with my hubby and my children (16 and 12 year olds) this August. But realistically, i doubt we can, at least with the kids; dont think they have the drive for this. Curious… How does the makeshift toilet work? Other blogs that i read made trekking seem a walk in the park. My ‘training’ is just weekly walking uphill of about 5km up and back. I need to reassess the trip again. Probably just take a trekking tour around Senaru. What would you suggest i.e.not to be missed sights and spots in Senaru?

Appreciate your feeback.

  • May 1, 2017

Hi Aida, you can check out the two waterfalls in Senaru (it’s in the post). It’s pretty easy walk to get to both of them. Aside of that, there doesn’t seem to be much else going on though.

  • April 21, 2017

Just want to chime in and say thank you for the post! Was looking for information on crater rim vs summit for Rinjani and I came by your post. Will be doing this in the next few days.

Thanks! Love the blog.

  • April 18, 2017

Hi Melissa Hie! I’m going on a trip to Bali in 2 days, it’s a impromptu, last minute trip. My cousin (male) suggest to climb Mt Rinjani & Mt Batur as we will be at Bali for 8 days. My cousin’s physique is well build, active in sports. As for me, I am obese, not active in sports, my ankle easily sprained & one of my ankle fractured last 2 years. I do want to push myself for this climb, but I am not physically prepared for it. HELP.

  • November 7, 2022

Simple blue and white flip flop is a Rinjani Porter secret to walk fast, strong and comfortable 😁😁💪

  • April 12, 2017

Hello Melissa,

What a lovely surprise to stumble into your blog[post. We met several times (I’m Aishah, friends of Prema). She did tell me about your IG but I didn’t know you write as well! Anyways, thank you for this lovely guide! I am quite anxious for the trek this Easter, but this article is pretty motivating! I hope to see you around in Singapore.

Looking forward for more travel blogs from you! Have a Easter weekend 🙂

hey aishah! you’ll do fine. enjoy the trek 🙂 are you doing the summit?

  • April 9, 2017

You in luck guys, you have good experience with the hallo trekker team.

  • April 3, 2017

Thank you for such a great post! So with Hallo trekkers, the porters are included in the price but the porters will only carry team equipment, correct? Not your personal bag? Or will they still carry your bag if it is under 5 kg but you have to pay additional if your bag is over 5 kg? Thanks!

  • April 4, 2017

only team equipment. you can hire an extra porter if you need someone to carry your bags

Excellent article! I am planning to do the Rinjani trek and this post gave me a fair idea of the 2D1N package. I have done 3 himalayan treks so I think I will be able to do this.

By the way where are you from?

  • March 31, 2017

Thanks for sharing this gurll =) sucha informative blog post you provided. do you mind me asking, how much do you pay for per head?

  • March 28, 2017

Lovely blog and very helping for mountain lovers. Cheers I love it.

  • March 20, 2017

Hi! Really interesting post! May I check, is this a trip where you have to prep before going? Like, do I have to train myself a few mths before the trip or can I just pack and go kind?

hey jia yi, depends on your level of fitness. i think if you are mostly sedentary you might want to get used to walking for long period of time, as well as some cardio training. some paths are quite steep.

  • March 12, 2017

Really helpful, thanks! We are going for our honeymoon in a few months.. would you recommend booking ahead of time or did you meet many people who booked when they got there? I’m nervous about not booking, but have heard it’s cheaper to wait. Can I ask how much yours was through Halo Trekker?

  • March 14, 2017

I paid US$180 for my 2d1n. But this is last year’s rate and if you want to do summit (3d2n) it might cost more 🙂 I did book ahead since I don’t think the savings are that much even if you decide to just book when you get there. The peace of mind is worth it!

  • February 28, 2017

Great articles thanks for sharing

  • February 26, 2017

Hi! I am thinking of doing this trek. It would be my first mountain climb as well. Can I ask what you did with the rest of your stuff while climbing? I pack pretty light, but I can’t imagine carrying all of my stuff that I will have for my 3 week journey across the country on a 1 night trek. Looks like a really good time. Thanks for the info!

Hey Chelsea, some of us in the group had a separate bag for stuff we didnt want to bring on the trek. We asked our trek operator to help store our stuff while we were away. I didn’t bring anything valuable, but if you have any i would recommend to bring them with you! We had no issues though.

  • February 22, 2017

Hey there! Truly informative piece. My friends and I are thinking of attempting the summit this August. As I have senstitive skin I’d like to know if you found the air ‘sulphuric’ or “biting’; the air quality is my paramount concern. Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Hey mark, i don’t have sensitive skin but I think i know what you meant. i thought the air felt normal during the trip. That said, we only did crater rim so we were quite far away from the volcanic part and did not smell / detect any sulphur presence. I think if you did the longer trip that includes the summit, you might get closer to the volcano activity. I suggest checking with your trek operator.

  • March 3, 2017

Thanks for the reply!

  • January 16, 2017

Looks like you had a very challenging and exciting experience!

This brings back great memories from our own trek up Rinjani, we did the 3 night, 4 day trek and the landscapes and views were absolutely incredible! Although we didnt make it to the summit as we were too tired, we sat on the ridge just below the summit and watched the sunrise from there!

Thanks for sharing your experience!

  • January 6, 2017

Definitely helpful! I’m definitely to ready for Rinjani but at least now I have a clearer picture of what I need to do. Thanks for sharing your experience 😀

Hi Melissa Hie,

Can I know what is the dress code that you will suggest for us for a trip on November ?

Hi there, I am not sure how it would be in November, so it’s best to ask your trip operator. We were fine with just light jackets.

Hey Melissa awesome blog! We are planning on spending 2 weeks in Bali and Lombok with the hike halfway through and obviously we dont want to take all our things up the mountain. Do you know if you can leave things at the hotel for the 2/3 days you are hiking. Thanks

Yes! we asked our tour operator to keep some of our luggages that we did not want to take up to the mountains as well. However, I would still exercise basic precautions like not storing large amount of cash or valuables.

The Great Article About Mount Rinjani. The Story Of Experience Really Interesting.

Mount Rinjani 2 Day / 1 Night Summit

There are countless reasons to love lombok. from the perfect waves and serene beaches in the south, to the coral waters and laid-back vibe of the gili islands. wherever you are on the island, mt. rinjani dominates the skyline..

  • INFORMATION

mkdf-tour-info-icon

The Mount Rinjani 2 day / 1 night Summit package is designed for people wanting to climb Lombok’s most epic peak in the shortest time possible, leaving plenty more holiday time to experience all that this extraordinary island has to offer. This Rinjani trekking package starts and finishes in Sembalun village, East Lombok. On day 1 you will trek up to Sembalun Crater Rim, a magical ridgeline campsite that overlooks lake Segara Anak and the active volcano, Mt Barujari. On day 2 you will awake at 2am, have breakfast and commence your trek to the summit of Mount Rinjani. After watching sunrise from 12,224ft / 3726m, you will return to the campsite at Sembalun Crater Rim for brunch and then commence the walk off the mountain back to Sembalun Village.

Why climb Mt Rinjani?

At 12,224ft / 3,726m Mount Rinjani is one of Indonesia’s highest peaks. It is also one of the most beautiful, with panoramic views at many stunning vantage points. Climbing Gunung Rinjani represents a real challenge, one that will leave you with a genuine sense of achievement and fond memories. It is not a technically difficult mountain to climb, the path is well established and no ropes are required. However, the elevation gain over a relatively short distance means a steep gradient and prolonged ascents. With a moderate level of fitness , the right attitude and a willingness to succeed we believe most people can reach the summit of this beautiful mountain. We have the best team of guides and porters to assist you on this journey.

Why choose Rinjani Dawn Adventures?

Rinjani Dawn Adventures has a 100% safety record for Rinjani trekking. We use the best porters and guides and have the best equipment on the mountain. We offer nutritious food, and have strong policies on protecting the environment. We take all of our rubbish off the mountain and remove existing rubbish whenever possible. We’re also a socially conscious operator, working with the community in Senaru to rebuild earthquake damaged houses, provide clean drinking water and food to those most affected (please see our Sasak Warriors page for more information on our community projects initiative).

Travel & Accommodation

Rinjani Dawn Adventures can arrange accommodation in Senaru the night before the trek at additional cost. We offer transport from hotels on North Lombok free of charge (please refer to our travel zone map). Should you be staying on mainland Lombok and do not want to stay in Senaru or Sembalun the night before the trek, we can arrange an early collection from your hotel.

Day 1 – Climbing to Sembalun Crater Rim

  • Travel to Sembalun Village: Start your day by traveling from the Rinjani Dawn Adventures office in Senaru to Sembalun Village. If you're staying in Sembalun, we will collect you from your hotel.
  • Registration: Complete registration at the Rinjani Information Centre.
  • Start-Point in Sembalun Village (969m altitude): Begin your Mount Rinjani Summit trek.
  • First Segment: Trek for approximately 2 hours to reach "Pos 1" or "Pemantuan" (1300m altitude). Rest for 15-20 minutes with refreshments and snacks.
  • Second Segment: Continue trekking for approximately 1 hour to arrive at "Pos 2" or "Tengengean" (1500m altitude). Take another 15-20 minute rest, enjoying more refreshments and snacks.
  • Third Segment: Trek for approximately 1 hour to reach "Pos 3" or "Pada Balong" (1800m altitude). Enjoy a 1-hour lunch break where our porters and guide will prepare a nutritious hot meal, along with tea and coffee.
  • Climb to Sembalun Crater Rim Campsite: Begin the most challenging part of the day with a steep ascent to the Sembalun Crater Rim campsite (also known as Plawangan Sembalun). This climb takes around 3 hours, with impromptu rest-points along the way for hydration and snacks. The campsite is at approximately 2684m elevation, offering spectacular views of Mount Rinjani’s Summit, Lake Segara Anak, and Mt. Barujari.
  • Arrival at Campsite: Upon arrival, your guide and porters will set up tents and start preparing dinner. Enjoy a delicious hot meal, and take time to relax, admire the view with a hot drink, take photos, and explore the ridgeline.
  • Prepare for Early Night: We recommend an early night to rest up for the 2 AM start of the summit trek. Comfortable mattresses and high-quality tents are provided to ensure a good night’s sleep.

Day 2 – Summit Climb & Return

  • Start your day early with a wake-up call at 2 AM. Enjoy a light breakfast and a hot drink to prepare for the trek.
  • Leave the Sembalun Crater Rim campsite and begin your ascent to the summit of Mount Rinjani. The 3-4 hour trek is steep and often consists of gravelly volcanic sand, making it a challenging climb. Temperatures can vary significantly, so dress in layers and bring a warm hat, beanie, and gloves.
  • Aim to reach the summit of Mt. Rinjani between 5:30 and 6:00 AM, just in time to watch the sunrise over Lombok. The summit offers exceptional views, including distant Mt. Agung in Bali, the three Gili Isles, and neighboring Sumbawa. Enjoy hot coffee or tea from a thermos while taking in the breathtaking panorama. Spend about 30-45 minutes at the summit, capturing photos and enjoying the scenery.
  • Begin the 2-hour descent back to the Sembalun Crater Rim campsite. The downhill trek is easier than the ascent, providing opportunities to take photos and admire the views in daylight.
  • Upon returning to the campsite, your porters will have prepared a well-deserved cooked brunch, along with coffee and tea. Spend about an hour relaxing and enjoying breakfast.
  • Start the trek back to Sembalun Village, retracing the route from Day 1 in reverse. Although downhill, the steepness of the path requires caution. The trek takes 5-6 hours, with regular breaks for rest and rehydration. A hot lunch will be provided during the descent.
  • Upon reaching Sembalun Village, transport will be waiting to take you back to the Rinjani Dawn Adventures office in Senaru (approximately 1 hour drive). Recover any luggage left in our care, say your farewells to your guide and porters, and arrange transport to your pre-arranged drop-off point or hotel.

This was an amazing climb for me and much of it due to the patient, clear instruction, leadership and encouragement from our guides.  They were professional in their teaching and serious about our safety, while maintainig a sense of levity that made the experience unforgettable. And I learned a ton!

It was good to hear you all were the best looking team on the hill; since, it is the first rule of mountain climbing, or so I’ve been told.  Glad the team is feeling strong.  Thanks so much for the updates, the best part of my days!  Keep the father/son team in check, they can be a handful.  Praying for safety, good health, and great weather.
