Mt. Rinjani 3,726 Meters Hiking

Mount Rinjani is an active volcano in Indonesia on the island of Lombok, It rises to 3,726 metres (12,224 ft), making it the second highest volcano in Indonesia, the third highest mountain of the Indonesian archipelago.

We started from Sembalun at 1156 meters, which is a nice warm-up as it has plenty of switch-backs and gradually climbs through the beautiful and HOT lowlands before ascending vertically to the Sembalun Gate / Pelawangan.

Day 1 was certainly long! We started at 9:30 am and hiked through posts 1 and 2 before finally stopping for lunch at post 3. The porters and guides made us a delicious lunch of noodle soup to warm our bones as it was drizzling and quite cold. From Post 3 to the crater rim the hike was very challenging 3.5 hour hike which took us from 1800m to 2639m, but we were shocked and surprised to see that we were able to pass university students along the way!

We settled in for the night and as it was cold and damp, we all opted for tent service dinner, enjoying another wonderful meal full of fresh veggies before falling asleep.
