Zero Waste Rinjani Trek
In the beginning of 2019, the stunning Mount Rinjani finally opened up again, after being closed from the events in 2018. This majestic volcano is rising 3,726 metres from the ground, making it the second highest volcano in Indonesia. Mount Rinjani hides a beautiful landscape and mind blowing trekking routes, that will take you through stunning scenery, jungle routes, rock climbing and ending up with a mind blowing view of the volcano crater.

Start your trekking from Senaru, from where you will quickly enter the jungle and walk in green and beautiful surroundings. Monkeys will follow you along the way, jumping from tree to tree, while you make your way up through natural stairs made by roots from the trees. Porters will carry all your equipment along the way, and you will be impressed how quickly and easily they move in their flip flops, while carrying between 30-40 kilos on their backs.
It’s our wish to take care of the nature and mother earth, while exploring the beautiful nature we are surrounded by. This is why we focus our Rinjani Trek on sustainability and recycle in collaboration with Gili Eco Trust. We always do our trekking with Green Rinjani, a trekking company in Senaru with a high focus on sustainability. Along the way, we will clean the trash of other hikers, we will plant trees on the mountain, and we will not use any single-use plastic.
Camping at the rim
After 6-8 hours of hiking, you will finally make it to the rim. It will be an exhausting journey to get there, but it is definitely worth it. The view waiting for you at the rim is truly spectacular. The enormous Mount Rinjani Crater hides the beauty of a stunning lake, breathtaking mountains and a “baby-volcano” inside the bigger crater. It’s a view that can’t be found anywhere else. This breathtaking viewing spot is where we will camp over for the night.
Things to know before hiking
Our Mount Rinjani Trek is a 2DAY/1NIGHT hike, which is a challenge to even a skilled hiker. It’s possible to do the trek with kids, but we recommend kids to be above 13 years and ready for an exhausting trip. The route through the forest is steep and the last part of the trek is rock climbing (not dangerous).
We recommend everyone to bring hiking shoes, as the route will be steep and slippery in the sand from the mountain. It’s cold on the top, which means everyone should bring long pants, jackets and something to cover the ears. You will sleep over in tents and sleeping bags carried by the porters, and food will be cooked for you along the way. It’s a magical journey, and we wish everyone a lovely trip!
