FAQ (Frequency Asked Questions)

A good fitness is needed to complete this climbing program, a beginner with above average fitness is usually able to climb up to the edge of the crater (camp area), but in addition to excellent stamina to get to the top in need also the spirit and a strong desire, as the 1000m rise from the Sembalun crater is so challenging, steep, and loose, the past climbing experience is very important.

Hiking in the mountain Rinjani will start from the village of Sembalun with an altitude of 1110m or from the village of Senaru 600 m above sea level. The Sembalun route with large and long grasslands, with relatively hot temperatures because it is under blistering sun (30-40 degrees Celsius). So you will need a sun block and a headgear, you will also go through steep, slippery, sandy, rocky and tropical jungle and some even have slopes up to 50 degrees, which makes your journey more challenging. Not only that, climb from Sembalun crater to summit other than cold, the path is also sandy with an extreme slope that makes two steps up one step down, in certain seasons sometimes the wind is also strong that makes the temperature closer to the freezing point. But along the way you will be spoiled with incredible scenery and the sound of birds singing, monkeys that seemed to wait in some places down from the summits and lakes.

The Senaru route is a climbing route starting at 600m and going through tropical rain forest, which is certainly not hot, but it will do a 2000m high rise. This route is usually used for Senaru crater hot spring and lake program without climbing the summit. While the Sembalun route is an irregular route that starts at an altitude of 1.100m through a vast meadow and nice scenery along the way, and if you want to get to the summit, this road is the choice because on the second day you can climb the summit of Rinjani mountain, but this route is a little hot because it has to cross the meadow.

What's the weather like? The weather on the island of Lombok is very different from the others, especially the mountain area of Rinjani, where our location is in the village of Senaru {office and hotel in where you will stay}. In the Senaru area the temperature ranges between 28 degrees - 32 degrees Celsius during the day and 22-24 degrees at night. While the temperature on the mountain is colder even closer to the freezing point at night, so you need a thick and warm jacket, and a windproof jacket while climbing the summit of Mount Rinjani (3.726 m). The island of Lombok includes tropical areas that have two seasons: rainy and dry season, Rinjani volcano will usually be available for climbing from April 1st to December 31st, while in January, February and March are rainy season which are not allowed to climb because it can endanger everyone’s safety. In April, May, October and December sometimes it rains and fogs but not too often, while June to early November is dry where there is no rain or fog.

For your arrival to Lombok you can use airplanes, fast boats and ferries. For arrival from Bali to Lombok and vice versa, we suggest you use fast boats because if you use an airplane you must be on time at the airport and of course it is very risky, in addition to the distance from Senaru village and the airport will also affect your time on the climb because it must be on time. We have a solution for you to use the fast boats where we can arrange for you without you having to book long before, so you will not be afraid to lose the ticket.

BALI TO LOMBOK

To go to Lombok when you come from Bali island, we recommend you to use the fast boat to Lombok with departure schedule at 9:00 am from Bali and will be arrived around 11:00 am in Bangsal port or Kodek Bay, and you will arrive in Senaru village around 12:30 or 13:00, so you will receive bonus we offered. Additionally, you will save time compared to using a ferry which can take 4-5 hours the from Lembar to Senaru can take 3-4 hours, or flight from Bali to Lombok which you will arrive around 11:25, while from the airport to Senaru will take about 3-4 hours.

To climb the Rinjani mountain, we recommend you to arrive the day before because all departure for Rinjani mountain climbing is started in the morning. Additionally, you are fresher and not in a hurry to prepare any equipment you forgot, and if you climb in the morning from the Sembalun village, it will not felt too hot in the vast meadow.
