Pergasingan Hill Deluxe
Our Pergasingan Hill Deluxe package involves camping on one of Lombok’s most iconic viewpoints – Bukit Pergasingan. The day will involve travelling north to Senaru, then on to Sembalun, the start point of the trek. The Pergasingan Hill Deluxe package is suited for people wishing to do something active but not exhausting. It is far less arduous than our Mount Rinani packages, but offers outstanding panoramic views and a pleasant camping experience. Should you wish to do some sightseeing on top of this trek, we suggest checking-our our Lombok Explorer package.
Bukit Pergasingan, or Pergasingan Hill in English, is a famed viewpoint overlooking the Sembalun valley in East Lombok. Sembalun village sits in a flat-bottomed valley, surrounded by mountains. What makes this location even more beautiful is the multi-coloured fields, which spread out across the valley-floor like an intricate patchwork quilt.
Driving to Sembalun takes some time if you are coming from Sengiggi or Bangsal Harbour (even longer if you are coming from South Lombok). For this reason, we usually stop in Senaru on the way, so you can stretch your legs and have lunch. Time permitting, we will take you to Sendang Gile waterfall in Senaru, before heading on to Sembalun (another hour’s drive).
There are two options for climbing Pergasingan Hill. The longer option follows a back trail and takes approximately 4 hours. The more direct route is far quicker, taking between 1.5-2 hours, depending on how often you stop to take photographs! We always aim to arrive at Pergasingan Hill campsite before sunset, so you can admire the view, make use of the “golden hour” to take photos and selfies, and relax with a cup of tea or coffee. Your guide and porters will set-up camp, make a campfire, and start cooking a delicious meal for you and your friends. The evenings are usually spent talking by the fire, stargazing, or listening to music if someone has brought a guitar or small speaker. Should you wish to have some local rice wine in the evening we can arrange at extra cost (but prior notice must be given when you book the package).

Pergasingan HillPergasingan Hill or “Bukit Pergasingan” in Bahasar Indonesia is one Lombok’s finest viewpoints. This majestic hill sits high above the mountain village of Sembalun, East Lombok. The valley in which Sembalun lies is flat and fertile, with a tapestry of fields stretching to the foot of the enclosing hills. Pergasingan Hill is an excellent viewing point and accessible to all levels of fitness (unlike Mt. Rinjani, which is considerably more arduous). It takes approximately 4 hours to climb, via a trail that Rinjani Dawn Adventures has pioneered. We aim to get you up to your campsite by 4.30pm, with ample time to relax and have a coffee before sunset. Camping on Pergasingan Hill is an experience you’ll never forget. As the sun sets, you’ll be able to soak up magnificent views and take wonderful panoramic photos of the valley below. If you’re an Instagram enthusiast or travel blogger this is selfie heaven! A delicious hot meal will be cooked by your guide and porters, and tent/s will be set-up for you (so you’ll be free to wander around or relax). If it’s a clear night you can take your sleeping bags outside and gaze upon Lombok’s spectacular night sky. The following morning you’ll have a leisurely breakfast, watching pockets of mist rise off the beautiful fields below. Walking back down the hill you might see an eagle hunting for prey, or other exotic birds flying high. When you finish your trek, we’ll drive you back to our office in Senaru, or to an onward destination you’ve pre-arranged. Climbing Pergasingan Hill will be a highlight of your Lombok experience. We’ll ensure you have a wonderful time, and that you leave with a smile on your face! If you think this package is the Lombok adventure for you, book this tour now! Our team looks forward to meeting and creating some wonderful memories with you.
