The trek climbing from Sembalun to Post III is not too hard because there are still many flat paths that started from an altitude 1200 – 1800 meters above sea level. From post III to the Crater Rim ( 2676m) is the hardest trip because the route is steep. All along the trekking Rinjani via Sembalun dominated by Savana and some endemic pine forest of Mount Rinjani.
Like Sembalun trekking trails, trekking from Senaru Village more challenging and taring where start trekking from 600 meters to 2626 meters above sea level ( Senaru Crater Rim ). If we count Senaru route is steeper than Sembalun trails. Different from Sembalun, trekking from Senaru we will pass beautiful dense forest until Post III.
