We will begin the trek to Mount Rinjani at the National Park office in Tetebatu village at 600m above sea level. Here we will register our entrance ticket. Your guide will explain in detail the trek route and safety procedures. We will then begin our climb. Rest stops will be taken along the way and at Post 2 ‘Pengkla’ Mel Shelter, 1,500m above sea level we will have lunch. After lunch we will continue our ascent for another couple of hours through the jungle to Post 3, ‘Pondok Momot Nyamin’ or ‘Penggu’ as some people call it. Here, at 2000m above sea level there are breathtaking views across to the island of Sumbawa (East of Lombok). After enjoying a rest here, we will continue for a couple of hours through grassy meadows to ‘Plawangan Tetabatu’, the crater rim at 2,650m altitude. Below you will see the amazing Segara Anak Lake and the active new volcano, Gunung Baru (or Mount Baru Jari) which last erupted in 1994. Here we will eat dinner, enjoy the impressive beauty of the landscape, and spend the night camping.
After an early coffee or tea and light snack at 3.00 am we will start the trek to the second summit of Rinjani which is 3,500m above sea level. The trek takes about 2.5hours. When we reach the second summit, we will enjoy the sunrise, take in the breathtaking views and drink hot tea or coffee and biscuits, and take some photographs. We will then return to the campsite, where we will take a rest and eat breakfast. We will then begin to climb about 2 hours back down to Post 3, where we will take a rest. The trek then descends for about 6 hours, a picturesque remote trail through the jungle back to Banok village. After lunch at Post 1 ‘Mayung Polak’ we will gently descend for about an hour through Tetebatu Village where the Tetebatu Rinjani trek program will end. We will then take you back to wherever you wish to go in Lombok.
