This itinerary is suitable for people who are short of time or those who wish to enjoy the beautiful sunrise view over the crater lake but not to exert themselves over the full length of the Rinajni trek. You will skip the hike to the lake and proceed back to Sembalun village after your summit climb. As part of Lombok reforestation effort, each hiker will also get a chance to plant a new tree on the slope of Mount Rinjani!
SINGAPORE – LOMBOK – SENARU/SEMBALUN VILLAGE
Upon arrival at the Lombok International Airport, you will be greeted by our friendly local representative who will bring you directly to a lodge in Senaru/Sembalun village via our private transportation.
Overnight: Lodge (1156m)
SENARU/SEMBALUN VILLAGE – PLAWANGAN 2 (CRATER RIM 2)
After an early breakfast at the lodge, you will first proceed to the Rinjani Information Center at Sembalun Village for mandatory registration and briefing on the route details, local traditions, safety procedures and rubbish management details. You will then start off the 6 hrs trek passing checkpoints- Pemantuan (1300m), Tengengean (1500m), Pada Balong (1800m) and to Plawangan 2 (2639m). The first part of the trail is a breeze walk through a vast grassland, where you will see cattles grazing and an unobstructed view of Gunung Rinjani. After Pada Balong, the trail ascends steeply for 3 hrs to Plawangan 2 where you will be greeted with sweeping views of the crater lake Segara Anak (2000m) and Rinjani Summit (3726m). Over here, our local porters will setup the tent for you to rest, and you can also enjoy a warmth of a glowing campfire under the stars.
Overnight: Tents with sleeping bags (2639m)
PLAWANGAN 2 – SUMMIT – PLAWANGAN 2 – SEMBALUN VILLAGE – SENGGIGI
You will be given an early morning wake up call for the summit trek at 3am. The terrain of the 3 hrs hike up to the summit is steep with loose volcanic soil, also the most challenging part of the Rinjani trek. After the workout, you will be rewarded with amazing sunrise views above the clouds at the summit. If the visibility is good, you can even see Bali and Mount Agung to the west and Sumbawa to the east. You will then descend back to Plawangan 2 to recharge with a quick rest and lunch before carrying on for a 5 hours descend to Sembalun where you will be transferred to your hotel in Senggigi.
*Summit climb is entirely optional, climbers who would like to conserve their energy instead could choose to have a longer rest and wait for the summitters at the campsite.

The whole arrangement from the start to the end was smooth. The support of the guide was immense and we enjoyed ourselves all the way through. But kudos to the guide who made this experience a beautiful one.

It has been a fulfilling trip from the start to the end. Ying has been very meticulous from the beginning; paying great attention to our dietary requirement, rooming arrangement etc. Thanks Abdul, our guide, for the encouraging gestures to keep us going especially during the summit push. Fond memories for years to come!

Thanks to our guide Arief for making my life so much bearable during the 3d2n trek. It was a tough trek especially for someone like me who’s not so fit but the scenery was really worth the sweat. Looking back it’s a trip well planned and executed. Thanks for making this happen.
– Jiahui (Group of 5 on a Mt Rinjani trip in May 2016)
We are very happy with the overall arrangement of everything from the choice of trekking company, the transportation and the accommodations. We were very well taken care of on the trek. The foods on our camping trip was really great. Beyond our expectation actually. =) Thanks you Bob for the patience to answer to all our queries and giving us advises that helps us greatly to planned out our extension stay after the climb. Will definitely join their other climbs or engage them to plan another trip again. =)
