Time schedule

1. Day: Senggigi-Sembalun-Sembalun Plawangan Rim

You will leave your hotel at 6 am from Sembalun village to fetch porter and at 9.30 am you will start the trek to base camp 2 ( two ) from here. On the way you won’t find any trees or any other sources of shade, so it will be very hot when you are walking. At base camp 2 ( two ) you stop for about 1 hour to enjoy some lunch and have some cakes. Then you continue the trip towards the rim in Sembalun. Around 5 pm you will arrive at the rim, have dinner with special mountain food and stay there the first night.

2. Day: Plawangan Rim-Summit-Lake-Cave-Hotspring-Senaru Rim

At 3 am you will start the trek to the top of mountain Rinjani. The icy wind blowing across the exposed slopes of the summit make the climb exceedingly difficult! There is very little to hold on to, so for every two or three feet up you’ll slip back at about a foot. You will make it to the top in the nick of time, even in your frozen and exhausted state, as you will be very much inspired by the beauty of the surroundings. At 6 am you will arrive at the summit and enjoy the rest for about an hour. After that, you will start to go down towards the rim of Sembalun to have breakfast. After breakfast time you’ll continue the trip to Segara Anak Lake, where you will arrive at 12 noon. You can swim in the lake and the hot springs which are 10 minutes away from the lake. At 3 pm you climb to the rim of Senaru which will take about 2,5 hours. This is where you will spend the second night.

3. Day: Senaru Rim-Senaru-Senggigi

You’ll have breakfast in the morning and enjoy sunrise eating special mountain jaffles or pancake, then you walk back to Senaru village. You’ll arrive there around 12 am, and before 3 p.m. you will arrive back to the hotel.
