Trekking Rinjani Summit

PROGRAM: SEMBALUN RIM – SUMMIT – LAKE – SENARU RIM

 

FIRST DAY: Pick up – Senaru Village

Tiu Kelep Waterfall

The first day of pick-up to be taken to the village of Senaru. Because 1 day before climbing is very good to spend the night in the village of Senaru for preparation.

Senaru village besides starting points, there are also 2 well-known waterfall locations: Sendang Gila Waterfall and Tiu Kelep Waterfall which is the most beautiful waterfall on the island of Lombok.

The location of the Sendang Gila waterfall, which is closer to the entrance to the waterfall, is higher than the Tiu Kelep waterfall. So you can do soft trekking 1 day before to the location of the two waterfalls.

For the initial stage, a stop at post 1. We will take it for 2.5 hours. Here we can relax for a moment to take a breath and to take shelter. Our trip at the beginning of the first day’s climb was not too heavy.

Some terrain conditions are very flat but unfortunately there is no tree where we use to shelter on this track because it is a very wide savanna and is dominated by grass that is green when the rainy season and will appear yellow when the dry season.

Next we proceed to Post 2 with the condition of the road going up a little and some of the flow of the former river flow that there will only be water when it rains or more accurately we might call it not a river but this is the flow of rain water, which is forwarded to the times in the plains low in Sembalun village.
