Located: Lombok, West Nusa Tenggar, Indonesia

Pergasingan Hill Lombok is the caldera wall of an old mount volcano in Sembalun that erupted around 450,000 years ago, making it the first geo-site of Rinjani Geo-Park in Lombok. This designation followed an extensive six-year research process by geologists and scientists. The local people gave the hill its name, referencing the history of Sembalun residents playing the local sport “GASING,” which involved spinning tops on the hill in the past. Gasingan is one of the local sports entertainments that you can still observe every afternoon in Sembalun village.

This location is one of the most popular soft trekking destinations on the beautiful Lombok island, rising to 1808 m above sea level.

It is accessible via Sembalun Village, situated at 1200 m above sea level in the highlands of Lombok. A visit to Pergasingan Hill will amaze you with the beautiful panorama of Sembalun Valley, a colorful rice carpet, incredible views of Mount Rinjani Volcano, stunning sunrises and sunsets, and the chance to witness thousands of stars during your visit.


We designed this soft trekking destination as an optional alternative to the challenging trek to Mount Rinjani Volcano, which may require a longer trekking program and a good level of fitness. This light hiking activity is accessible for kids, beginners, or even older individuals who want to enjoy the beautiful nature around Mount Rinjani volcano.

This trip entails a 3-hour hike up to the hill’s peak and a 2.5-hour walk down to Sembalun Village. You can include it in a single Lombok tour, which may also feature visits to interesting places in Sembalun or a waterfall tour in Senaru village, making it worthwhile to complete your best vacation experience in Lombok.


This alternative hiking activities can be done in one day Sunrise Trip or 2 days 1 night hiking & camping
