If you want to climb Mount Rinjani you can do it through several climbing accesses, including entrance access; Senaru Village, Torean Village, Sembalun Lawang Village, Sajang Village, Timbanuh Village and Aik Berik Village (North Batukliang)

In general, most climbers climb through access to Senaru village or Rinjani Via Sembalun Lawang village.

Especially for climbers who just want to conquer the peak of Rinjani which has a height of 3,726 m above sea level, the closest access is through Rinjani Via Sembalun Lawang.

This Beautiful Mountain Was Deadly

RINJANI MOUNTAIN TREKKING PACKAGE VIA SENARU

 

Via Aik Berik
Hiking route via Aik Berik district. central Lombok

In the near future, the Central Lombok district government has a discourse to take part, to be involved in organizing the climbing of Mount Rinjani through the Central Lombok district in a practical way.

Previously, it was already there but not as noisy as through the Senaru and Sembalun climbing routes which are geographically located in the North Lombok (Senaru) and East Lombok (Sembalun) districts.

It seems that Central Lombok Regency also doesn’t want to be a constant spectator, so this plan will be pursued with an innovative concept, by planning the construction of roads or the opening of new lanes.

So that climbers as far as possible can drive as close as possible to the mouth of the Segara Anak crater, because this is part of the alternative for those who are physically no longer strong enough to climb with terrain such as the Senaru route and the Rinjani via Sembalun route.

Via Aik Berik
Lake Segara Anak through Pelawangan Aik Berik (south side of the crater) district. central Lombok

Rinjani via Sembalun is the closest access to the journey to the summit. because it means you will start climbing from a height of 1,156 m above sea level.

While climbing through the village access “Senaru” starts from a height of 601 m above sea level.

Mount Rinjani is the second highest volcanic mountain in Indonesia after Mount Kerinci in Jambi (Sumatra) 3,805 m above sea level.

Mount Rinjani has erupted several times and volcano experts think that before it erupted, its height was estimated at about 5,000 meters in the shape of a cone, but after two major eruptions, this mountain formed a crater in the middle of its former eruption.

Like a bowl, it accommodates rainwater in its crater which is in the middle of a rainwater lake called the ‘Segara Anak’ lake which is at an elevation of 2008 m above sea level which has an overflow in the north.

The overflowing water from Segara Anak lake forms a small river, the water is white so the local people gave the name this time as “kokok Putek.”

In the Sasak language which means Kali Putih, where the flow of water from the overflowing Lake Segara Anak raises many waterfalls in its flow. Among them, there are several popular ones to visit, namely: Mangku Sakti Waterfall and Mayung Putek Waterfall (white deer) and Umar Maya waterfall. Mount Rinjani National Park began to be developed into a tourism industry since 1999 and was followed by the formation of the RTMB (Rinjani Trekking Management Board) institution which trains and educates all components involved in organizing Mount Rinjani climbing.

Mount Rinjani erupted for the umpteenth time in 2004, due to this eruption there was no effect caused only a small boom was heard as far as the city of Mataram and centered on a volcanic cone enclosed by high cliffs of the crater walls.

The last time it erupted was on November 3, 2015 for 2 weeks which resulted in disruption of flight traffic.

Especially at Ngurah Rai international airport in Bali and Lombok international airport (BIL) because of the effects of volcanic ash rain that was blown into the air to block visibility for flights.

Ironically, those who live around the slopes of Mount Rinjani do not get the effects of the dust rain at all, only those who can clearly hear every boom when an eruption occurs.

The impact of the eruption of Mount Rinjani had quite an effect on tourism actors who really felt the impact of the volcanic ash disaster of the eruption of Mount Baru Jari.

Many travel agent guests and hotel guests canceled their arrival because flights for the Ngurah Rai International Airport Denpasar (Bali) and Lombok International Airport (BIL) were temporarily closed.

Including the business people climbing Mount Rinjani, of course also the tourists who have already paid an advance for hotel accommodations located in Lombok.

Mount Rinjani from Senaru village, you can see the trekking organizers’ buildings.
Mount Rinjani area is part of a national park which consists of 40 national parks in the archipelago which covers an area of 41,330 ha and is also incorporated in protected forests with an area of 66,000 ha.

The preservation of the forest and the animals contained in it is protected by the state, around the slopes of Mount Rinjani there are 20 traditional villages that surround it.

The crater of Mount Rinjani is so beautiful that many mountain lovers come to visit it, apart from seeing the stunning nature, climbers can also do fishing in Segara Anak lake.

These fish used to come from seeds sown by the second president of the Republic of Indonesia, President Suharto

 

Fishing in the Lake

Slightly different from the fish commonly found in freshwater below, these fish have a slightly larger head.

Maybe due to lack of food intake, the fish in the lake are very hungry. Anglers are very easy to get and certainly these fish when cooked or when served a little smell of sulfur.

This lake is called Lake Segara Anak by the Lombok people, it can be guessed from the naming of this lake that the local people (Lombok people) gave the name.

In ancient times the people of Lombok when they saw water that was inundated widely as when they saw the ocean they called it “segara” as well as the Segara Anak lake whose water resembled a small ocean.

Lombok people call it immediately, it could be that the Lombok people when they first saw the lake in the crater of Mount Rinjani resembled a child from the ocean so it was named the child of the ocean or “Segara Anak.”

Likewise with the volcanic cone whose peak is 2,351 m above sea level on the edge of the lake, which is named Mount Baru Jari or Mount Baru Jadi, because the Lombok people used to think that the volcanic cone was an incipient mountain or had just emerged without them knowing. that it is a geological effect.

Due to the pressure of magma that pushes the earth’s surface to form a cone, without ever knowing that the crater was a former eruption in a very powerful past, in general, 20 years ago Indonesians had known Mount Rinjani through pictures on banknotes worth Rp. 10,000.

The Day Third Rinjani Mountain Trekking Package Via Senaru

Rim Senaru – Lake – Rim Sembalun

 

After breakfast then we continue the journey to go down to the lake, through a steep cliff wall.

Rinjani trekking package
The atmosphere of the trip from Rim Senaru (post 3)

Here the climbers are required to be more careful because there are certain parts of the place that appear dangerous, when we walk down a very narrow track, a very steep and high ravine.

However, from the management of the Rinjani Mountain National Park, they have made a safety barrier with iron in certain places to hold on when we cross.

The time we need to go down to the lake is approximately 2.5 – 3 hours but here there is no resting post as we found in the previous track until arriving at Segara Anak Lake, there is only a resting post and you are at an altitude of 2008 m asl.

The guide and porter immediately prepares to cook lunch, but before the guide will take the group to the hot spring for bathing, the location is below the elevation of the lake surface.

Exactly in the overflow area of ​​Segara Anak Lake, from the lake to the location of hot water, it is only a short walk of about 15 minutes from the lake resting place, here are 4 simple plots of ponds to distinguish the level of hot water temperature .

In plots of hot water there is also a flow of pipes to direct warm water to each pool plank. Here you can dip your body or take a dip but beforehand you should ask the guide which levels you should go before.

Must start from the low temperature first to the warmest. We recommend that the body is put into a warm water place then after a while you move to the warmer one again, then to a fairly hot level.

Hot spring water
Soaking atmosphere in Aik Kalak or Aik Bangkal (Lombok) means boiling water or Hot Spring

Approximately after an hour’s soaking, the guide will visit and take the group back to the lake for lunch.

About half an hour after lunch we continue the journey to the crater rim Sembalun.

I was no longer able to bend my legs and surrender on this cliff, Pak Alam, the guide of Rinjani, took the bag that I had brought with me, I could walk again.
From the lake to Rim Sembalun it takes about 3 hours to reach Rim Sembalun at an altitude of 2,639 m above sea level.

This journey Rinjani mountain trekking package begins with a journey that is not so heavy as we occasionally turn towards the right towards the lake as if there will be a feeling we will separate leaving memories, with something that is difficult for us to forget.

Because when walking left the lake little by little Segara Anak lake disappeared from the view behind us.

Then after 1 hour of travel we will feel the terrain getting heavier, while walking occasionally we ask the guide the direction we are going to go, as if it feels impossible through a cliff so steep up like a wall from a distance.

rock and heat, when the sun is leaning westward, it turns out that the route from the distance like a vertical cliff wall turns out there is still a 1.5 meter wide road.

Gerbang Wisata CEO
I was no longer able to bend my legs and surrender on this cliff, Pak Alam, the guide of Rinjani, took the bag that I had brought with me, I could walk again.

On the cliff and when looking down wow … !!! very steep and deep cliffs, I suggest being alert and concentrated, here is not a place to joke.

The closer to the destination the field changes slightly which was our footing the rock ground this time is rather sandy which makes it a little heavier when standing on.

After arriving at Rim Sembalun’s destination here we spent the night for the second time.

On this trip Rinjani mountain trekking package, the porters usually arrive, because they must immediately install tents and immediately prepare evening dishes.

What is certain is that this second day trip is very tiring, especially when crossing a very steep cliff wall, the leg muscles really feel weak and occasionally there is a groan from other participants who are not used to trekking, sometimes there are also climbers who cramped including me at that time I also had foot cramps and the one who groaned was me too, heheheheee … !!! so embarrassed.

Rim Sembalun is not as beautiful as the rim of Senaru because here it appears that the lake Segara Anak only looks half and the cone of volcanic volcano Baru Baru does not look at all.

After the dinner is finished, it will be very beautiful if there is a full moon and the wind does not blow hard.

The Day Fourth Rinjani Mountain Trekking Package Via Senaru

Rim Sembalun – Bawak Nao – Transfer

 

Then after waking up in the morning the guide and porter already get up to prepare breakfast.

Sembalun caldera

Including preparing warm tea, it is advisable to get up early so that you can watch the morning dawn and the sun rise from the east.

The resting post in Sembalun has almost no trees in the middle of the savanna
At around 7 am we continue the journey down to Sembalun village along the savanna, almost no trees and tricks of the sun will be very stinging.

We did not realize that, because of the vast savanna which was formed beautifully by the ridge of the foot of Mount Rinjani, here there were many post-dismissals.

To rest, similar to the gazebo that has been provided by the manager of the Mount Rinjani national park which is intended as a place for resting climbers.

Including the purpose of taking a cooking break for lunch, climbers usually arrived in Sembalun village, targeted at around 2 pm, arrived at Sembalun Lawang, Bawak Nao village on the roadside.

Bawak Nao Village is a closer access to the asphalt road rather than walking towards the Sembalun climbing gate, here there is a pickup car behind without a roof just to pick up the group to return to Senaru village.

Drive about 30 minutes to pick up the safekeeping items and clean the body then the last destination is transport to Senggigi or to 3 Gili, if there are other destinations such as Kuta Lombok, Sheet or Airport will be charged an additional fee.
