General Rinjani Trekking Package information

In general, trekking to Mount Rinjani usually closes in early January and opens in early April every year. The closure was carried out because the weather was unfriendly, namely, the intensity of the rain was very high and efforts were made to conserve the area.

The best time to climb Mount Rinjani is from April to June. At that time, the weather was still cool and the nature around it was still green even though it usually rains in April.

Meanwhile, starting in July-October the weather began to heat up and along the hiking trail, it started to get dusty.

The peak of the high number of visits to Mount Rinjani both foreign tourists and domestic tourists is also between July, August, September, and October.

Especially for domestic tourists, it is usually crowded in August on the Long holiday to celebrate the independence day of the Republic of Indonesia on August 17.

The center of the event is at several points starting from the Sembalun field, the peak of Mount Rinjani, and at the Segara Anak lake.

Meanwhile, at this time, it is not possible to travel to Segara Anak lake through the Senaru gate because the descending path from Pelawangan experienced a landslide so that it cannot be passed, thus climbing through the Senaru gate can only reach Pelawangan.

For tourists who want to visit Segara Anak lake, they must pass the Sembalun climbing route which is relatively still possible and good to pass.

Then again, you have to go through the same route considering that the path to the Senaru field is completely covered by landslides.
