Welcome to Mount Rinjani volcano, Lombok

Trekking Mount Rinjani volcano… everything you need to know and more

Mount Rinjani volcano is Indonesia’s second highest volcano, and is renowned as a “must do” trekking location for both beginner and experienced trekkers. 

Trekking Mount Rinjani volcano is not as easy as many other volcanoes due to the steep sides of the caldera (especially when approached from the side of

Sembalun Village) but the views from Rinjani summit are some of the most spectacular.  Considering trekking Rinjani volcano?  Rinjani volcano treks are

fantastic!

The volcano dominates the entire landscape of Lombok, and lies within the Mount Rinjani National Park, a protected area where all development has been prevented ensuring the area if kept as natural as possible. Mount Rinjani’s impressive form at 3,726 metre high, is visible from almost anywhere on the island of Lombok, and is so high it’s summit is above the cloud line, often even when all other areas of Lombok are cloud free. Indonesia sits atop “The Ring of Fire”, a meeting of the massive tectonic plates below the surface of the earth, and whose movements create violent, but often beautiful events, such as volcanic eruptions.  It is believed that a massive eruption in 1257 may have been the cause for numerous failed crop harvests in a widespread area of the earth, and possibly a period of global cooling due to the volcanic ash released into the atmosphere. Mount Rinjani volcano lies in what is known as “The Sunda Arc”, a region containing some of the most dangerous and explosive volcanoes in the world. The crater located at the top of Mount Rinjani, measuring 8km by 5km,  is partially filled with water of a deep blue in colour, forming a “crater lake”  The volcano is held in mystical belief that it is the residence of gods, and has become an integral part of the local culture.  The rich volcanic ash which has settled on the steep slopes provides a rich growing area for rice terraces, and at the lower slopes a large variety of fruits and vegetables are cultivated for local consumption. The lower slopes have evolved into lush tropical jungle, intermingled with fast-flowing streams and streams that form some beautiful waterfalls as the volume and speed of the water increases… this is the stunning Sendang Gile and Tiu Kelep waterfalls. Climbing Rinjani is not for the faint hearted as a reasonable level of fitness is required, especially on the upper slopes where the air thins and the temperatures drop to as low as 4 degrees Celsius. Our teams of professional mountain guides and porters have taken more of our guests to the summit of Mount Rinjani than any other trekking company, and we are proud of our 100% safety record… no guest has ever been injured.  All of our guides are licensed by the Mount Rinjani National Park Authority, which ensures compliance with all park rules and requirements at all times.  Not only do we comply with the park authority requirements, we go beyond.  Mount Rinjani Volcano Treks has a company policy of “What you take in, you take out”…. we leave nothing but footprints and take nothing buy photographs, thereby protecting the mountain for future visitors.
