This is the shortest trek you can choose if you want to reach the Summit of Rinjani Mountain. With this package you will start and finish the trek in Sembalun Village and you will visit the Crater RIM Sembalum and Mount Rinjani’s Summit. You will be able to see the lake inside the caldera but you won’t visit the lake or the hot springs.

With this package, we will pick you up in the morning (around 4 am, depending on you hotel location). This means that you have to be in Lombok at least the day before the trek. On request we can also pick you up at Gili island ( on the same day) or in Bali Island (the day before the trek) at an additional cost.

*This trek is available from April 1st to December 31st due to climatic reasons.
