Rinjani Trekking Map & Routes
Which Route Is Recommend?
There are five official routes to climb Rinjani by the government and Mount Rinjani National Park officer, but the most recommended is Sembalun, Senaru and Torean Route. You can choose one between of those three routes if you want to explore all the spots on Rinjani, such as Senaru and Sembalun crater rim, Summit/Top, Segara Anak Lake and the Hot Spring. To reach all those point, minimum you should choose the 3 Days trek which you can starting from Sembalun or Senaru.
Basically, both of the routes is through the same path, so the view is mostly same if you do the 3 Days trek from Sembalun and finish in Senaru (vice versa). The difference is when you start the hike from Sembalun, you will fight up to the Summit on the second day. And if you start from Senaru, you should take minimum the 3D2N trip to reach the summit on the last day of hike.
For a trekker who has a limited time, but would like to reach the top of Rinjani, they can start the hike from Sembalun as it only needs minimum a 2D1N to catch the top. but this program requires a good level of fitness or an advanced trekker. you can check the itinerary of 2D1N Summit here which is start from Sembalun and finish in Sembalun as well.
For a beginner or who is not a good level of fitness, they can do the 2D1N Crater which is started via Senaru and ending in Senaru. why is it recommended to visit the Senaru crater rim? as it is popular with the views, it is also called as the second summit of Rinjani, you can see the three Gilis and the best point to see the Segara Anak Lake.
