What’s the plan?
Day 1: Your Hotel – Sembalun Village – Pergasingan
Our driver will pick you up at your hotel by 12:00 at noon (After lunch), and will drive to Sembalun Village. This will be a 3-hour drive trough the north coast. When you arrive at Sembalun Village, you will meet the guide and porter, and will have a trekking briefing. We will start the trek by 3 pm. You need extra energy for the first hour of trekking. The first half of the trek is quite steep. Take it slow while enjoying the beautiful rice-fields at the bottom of the valley and the Great Rinjani Mountain at the West. The 2nd half is not too hard as the 1st half. The nice view will distract you.
After 2 – 2,5 Hours trekking, you will arrive at the base camp. The porter will prepare your tent and dinner while you enjoy the sunset just beside Mountain Rinjani, with a hot coffee and tea in your hand. Dinner will be served after sunset. Then you will have time to rest/free time (Milky way photo shoot is perfect from here on a clear night).
Day 2: Pergasingan – Sembalun Village – Your Hotel
The next morning, by 5:30 am, the guide will wake you up and you willget ready to walk to the east side of the hill for the sunrise. The sunrise point is just about 30 minutes walk from the base camp. From there you can see the beautiful sunrise with beautiful views of Gili Lampu & Gili Sulat at the shore of East Lombok. You will also see the other hill at the opposite valley and the east site of Sembalun Valley rice-field. A Panoramic Photo is perfect to be taken from here. After the sunrise, we will go back to the base camp for breakfast. Take some more photos and then we leave the base camp back to Sembalun by 9:30 am.

Frequently Asked Questions
