Day 2: Sembalun Crater Rim – Enjoy Sembalun Crater Rim – Segara Anak Lake to Crater Rim Senaru
Morning wake up to enjoy proud feelings of satisfaction and the amazing sunrise views across the Wallace Line to Bali, Mt. Agung, and Sumbawa, enjoying the spectacular views at the campsite, walking around the ridge passing numerous edelweiss plants Bunga Abadi at around the crater rim camp after enjoying the surrounding time for a well-deserved breakfast. After breakfast, proceed to go down to the lake. It takes two to three hours down the steep trail to the crater lake. Enjoy the lake, swim, or explore the caves and pilgrimage hot springs, believed to have healing powers, while our porters prepare your lunch. After the lunch break, leave the lake and climb for two and half hours up to Plawangan 1 Senaru Crater Rim (2,461 m) for day 2’s camp. Dinner and overnight at crater rim if weather permitted or another hour down to Cemara Lima.
Day 3: Crater Rim Senaru – Batu Penyesalan – Senaru Village to Senggigi
After breakfast, descend down the long trail to Senaru village (601 m), through thick tropical forests rich in flora, bird life, and a variety of butterflies. You might see orchids and, if lucky, the rare black ebony leaf monkey, known locally as lutung. Rest stops are taken along the way, with village stories and local legends related by your guide. Features include the Batu Penyesalan stone and banyan tree Bunut Ngengkang which looks like someone standing with their legs apart. After seven hour walk from the rim, (or five hours from Pos 3 Mondokon Lolak), the trek ends at Rinjani Trek Center at the road head in Senaru, where the car is waiting to transfer you to Senggigi.
