Your 2-night tour begins with pickup from Lombok Airport or your central Lombok hotel (pickup times are flexible and will be confirmed on booking), and a transfer to your first night’s accommodation in Senaru or Sembalun. On arrival, you will meet your guide and be given a rundown of the tour itinerary, before being left to enjoy your first evening independently.
Day 1: Senaru village (601m) - Crater Rim Senaru (2641m)
Wake up at 6:30am and have breakfast at your hotel, before walking to the Rinjani Trek Centre (around 10 minutes walk from the hotel) to register. Start your guided trek at 8am and begin by walking through dense tropical rainforest, stopping along the way to admire exotic birds and butterflies. Stop for a break at the Montong Satas shelter (4,921 feet/1,500m) and refuel with a cup of tea with some biscuits, then continue the ascent for another 2 hours up to Mondokan Lolak (6,562 feet/2,000m), where you'll have lunch.
After lunch, continue for another 2 hours to the Senaru crater rim (8,665 feet/2,641m). The Senaru crater offers a spectacular viewpoint from which you can watch the sunset over Mt Agung and the rest of Bali. You will camp here for the night.
Day 2: Crater Rim Senaru (2641m) - Senaru village (601m)
After breakfast and watching the sunrise, leave Mt Rinjani and hike back down to Senaru village through the rainforest, keeping a look out for rare black monkeys. The return trek takes around 5 hours and you will stop for lunch along the way.
On return to Senaru Village in the mid afternoon, your tour ends with a transfer to Lombok airport or your hotel.
