Mount Rinjani Lombok, one of the most famous volcanoes in Indonesia. The mighty Rinjani mountain of Gunung Rinjani is a massive volcano which towers over the island of Lombok. A climb to the top is one of the most exhilarating experiences you can have in Indonesia. With its 3,726 meters, Gunung Rinjani is the second highest mountain in Indonesia. The climb to the top may not be easy but it’s worth it and is widely regarded as one of the best views in the country.
Part of the famous ‘ring of fire’ this mountain also holds spiritual significance for the local people. It’s thought that the name Rinjani comes from an old Javanese term for ‘God’.
Around the slopes of Rinjani there are lush forests sprinkled with waterfalls and surrounded by stunning scenery.
Within the mountain is a crescent shaped lake, the breathtaking Segara Anak which is about 6km wide at its widest point. This lake of sulfur is located 600 meters below the crater rim. In the lake rises another volcano, Mt. Baru, which is a result of a series of eruptions during the 1990’s. Segara Anak is a spiritual place. The Balinese come here each year and perform a ceremony called pekelan where jewelry is placed in the lake as an offering to the mountain spirit. The Wetu Telu people also regard the lake as holy and come here to pray on full moon nights.
Mt Rinjani lies within the Gunung Rinjani National Park. The park covers 41,330 hectares and sits inside a major bio-geographical transition zone (Wallacea). This is where the tropical flora and fauna of South East Asia meets that of Australia. This National Park was established in 1997 and is one of over 40 national parks throughout Indonesia.
For visitors, the three-day Rinjani trekking route from Senaru to the crater rim, down to the Crater Lake then on to sembalun Lawang, is considered as one of the best trekking in South East Asia. More adventurous trekkers may want to head all the way to the summit of the volcano. This is reached best from Sembalun Lawang and takes four days, finishing up in Senaru.
To ensure that local communities benefit from tourism revenue, the Rinjani Trek is managed by a partnership of National Park officials, the public and private sector of the Lombok tourism industry and community representatives. Community run cooperatives coordinate the Trek at the Rinjani Trek Center (RTC) in Senaru and the Rinjani Information Center (RIC) in Sembalun Lawang.
Revenue from tourism activities and entry fees is used for conservation, management and assists the National Park officials in the maintenance of the Rinjani Trekking route, thus ensuring its sustainability. This management model is unique in Indonesia and considered as an example of best practice for ecotourism in IndonesiaRead more!
