Rinjani Trekking 4 Days 3 Nights Summit & Segara Anak Lake 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 two 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.
The trek continues for two hours descending down to the lakeside. This is where we can camp for the second night so plenty of time for relaxing, swimming and perhaps a little fishing in the lake. Not to be missed is a visit to the hot springs nearby where you can ease your weary muscles in the warm soothing water. We also visit two incredible caves, the first having hot water where you can swim and the second where you can have a refreshing cold shower! Camping over night by the lake.
Time to relax in the morning after breakfast and then a two hour ascent to Senaru crater rim. Magnificent views from here so time to take some stunning photos. Dinner whilst watching the sunset and time to contemplate your trip whilst chilling under the stars. Camping overnight.
The last day it’s all downhill for around six hours to Senaru. This journey takes you through coffee plantations and beautiful tropical rain forest where you may catch glimpses of black Macaque monkeys in the trees. Trek finishes around 1-2pm.
Time to leave Senaru taking with you some amazing memories of the mighty Gunung Rinjani volcano.
