Rinjani Trekking 3 Days 2 Night Summit Trek Itinerary :
The day is started by a good breakfast followed by a full briefing of the trek & registration with the Rinjani Trek Center ( RTC. ) Transfer by car to Sembalun where we start our trek around 8.30am. The first leg of our journey takes approx 7 hours to Sembalun Crater Rim. The journey takes us through open meadows where we will rest & stop for lunch. We camp at the rim for the night. Time to relax & have dinner whilst watching an amazing sunset over the Segara Anak Lake. Early to bed.
An early wakeup call at 2.30am to start the ascent to the summit of Gunung Rinjani ( 3726 m) taking approx three hours. The terrain is mostly loose scree or stones and the ascent is steep therefore it can be strenuous. If you wish you can always remain at camp for this part of the trek. However it’s certainly worth the effort as you will be greeted by an awe inspiring sunrise with views of Bali to the west and Sumbawa to the east whilst enjoying a great sense of personal achievement. Arrive back at camp around 8.30am, time for a good breakfast and a rest.
After a hearty breakfast he trek continues for two hours descending down to the lakeside. Here you have time to relax easing your weary muscles in the hot springs, have a swim or even try your hand at a little fishing.
