Mount Rinjani Trekking Lombok Guides
The park is popular for trekking activity and represents an important nature reserve and water catchement area. The park is officially 41,330 hectares within the park boundaries and includes a further 66,000 hectares of protected forest outside the mountain and its satellites form the Mount Rinjani National Park.
In 2008, the Indonesian government proposed to UNESCO that mountain be one of the world’s official geoparks. If this was approved by UNESCO, Mount Rinjani would become the first such geological park in Indonesia.
Mount Lombok or Rinjani volcano has obtained the World Legacy Award from Conservation International and Traveller (2004), and was a finalist for Tourism for Tomorrow Awards (2005 and 2008) from the World Travel Tourism Council (WTTC).
Mount Rinjani is an active volcano in Indonesia on the Lombok island Indonesia. Administratively the mountain is in the Regency of North Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara Indonesian It rises to 3,726 metres (12,224 ft), making it the second highest volcano in Indonesia.
On the top of the volcano is a 6-by-8.5-kilometre caldera, which is filled partially by the crater lake known as Segara Anak or Anak Laut (Child of the Sea) due to blue color of water lake as Laut (Sea). This lake is approximately 2,000 metres (6,600 ft) above sea level and estimated to be about 200 metres (660 ft) deep, the caldera also contains hot springs.

The Best Trek on Mount Rinjani 2020 – Open Now for Adventurer
Best Time to Climb Mount Rinjani
The best time for hiking Mt Rinjani Indonesia during the April-November dry season. The trekking trails are generally closed during the rainy season. In recent years the early months of the ‘dry season’ have become more prone to rain and you should be prepared to encounter heavy rain and low visibility with slippery tracks underfoot at any time, particularly in the afternoon.
It gets very cold on the mountain above 2,000 m and nears freezing at the summit. Warm clothing is an absolute must.
The Ascent Routes Rinjani Mountain.
If you want to the peak, then you will go through Sembalun, equipped with climbing easier (mostly flat) through the meadows to the base of the peak. The down side is that you will walk in the sun all the time. However, if you are absolutely sure you will not attempt the summit, you have to go through Senaru, which will take you through the non-stop steep ascent through the rain forest and rocky climb is quite difficult in the last leg. This is the route that is more beautiful and shaded from Sembalun, but you can not reach the top in two days.
If you travel, you do not have to worry about choosing because you will hit both sides. However, if you are wondering whether to start from Sembalun or Senaru, may come to when you want to the peak. If you want to the peak earlier in the trip, and then select Sembalun.
