Senaru Crater Rim 2 Day / 1 Night

There are countless reasons to love Lombok. From the perfect waves and serene beaches in the South, to the coral waters and laid-back vibe of the Gili Islands. Wherever you are on the island, Mt. Rinjani dominates the skyline.

Our Senaru Crater Rim 2 day / 1 night trek is suitable for people wishing to experience a challenging two-day adventure on Lombok, climbing to one of the finest viewpoints the island has to offer. Starting and finishing in Senaru Village in North Lombok, this 2 day / 1 night package will take you into the heart of Gunung Rinjani National Park (a UNESCO geopark). On day one, you will ascend through thick virgin rainforest that blankets the lower slopes of Mt Rinjani. Breaking the tree line in the afternoon, you will follow grassy ridgelines up to Senaru Crater Rim. The campsite at Senaru Crater Rim (also known as Plawangan Senaru) is unique in its location and aspect. To the North East is Mount Rinjani’s imposing summit, whilst below the graduated colours of lake Segara Anak & Mt Barujari (an active volcano) rouse the imagination. On a clear day it’s possible to see the three famous Gili Isles to the West – Gili Trawangan, Meno and Air, dotted on the glistening water of the Lombok Strait. Behind these three tiny islands, Bali’s Mt Agung sits high above the horizon. If you’re seeking an adventure brimming with stunning locations and panoramic views then our Senaru Crater Rim 2 day / 1-night trek is the package for you!

Why trek to Senaru Crater Rim?

Trekking to Senaru Crater Rim allows travellers to experience the dramatic landscapes and beautiful scenery of Gunung Rinjani National Park in a short 2 day / 1 night timeframe. Unlike our Mt Rinjani summit packages this trek is achievable for most fitness levels, but still represents a genuine challenge requiring some endurance and determination! The trek is a total of 21km in distance, with a 2000m elevation gain on day one, including some prolonged ascents. The Senaru Crater Rim package will leave you feeling exhilarated! Spending time in nature can be excellent for de-stressing and “re-charging the soul”. This wonderful tour may leave you feeling tired and a little sore by the end of day two, but we hope you’ll feel rejuvenated on a deeper level, with a rekindled sense of adventure and zest for life.

Environmental & Social Responsibility

Rinjani Dawn Adventures is committed to protecting the environment and promoting sustainable travel. We do our best minimise the usage of packaged foods, and remove all our waste from the mountain. We also ask our porters and guides to go the extra mile by removing pre-existing waste left by other companies where possible. Rinjani Dawn Adventures has forged strong ties with the local community in Senaru, especially during the 2018 earthquakes. Through our “Sasak Warriors” program, we have helped provide Senaru with fresh drinking water, medical aid, and materials for re-building houses. This is an on-going commitment, which we hope to expand over the coming years.

Safety

Rinjani Dawn Adventures was founded on a partnership between western and local owners. This has brought a greater depth of knowledge, experience, and higher standards of safety and customer service. Although the odds of serious injury whilst trekking to Senaru Crater Rim are relatively low, we have a thorough risk assessment and rescue plan in place.

Getting to Senaru

We recommend an early start for all our trekking packages. Starting early allows for longer rest breaks, and more time to enjoy the surrounding flora and fauna. We recommend starting this trek no later than 9am. If you’re staying on mainland Lombok the night before your trek, we can arrange our driver to collect you from your hotel early. Transport from Mataram, Sengiggi, Bangsal Harbour and other “Zone 1” locations are included in the price of the package. Transport from greater distances incurs an additional charge (please refer to our travel zone map in the booking portal). Should you wish to travel to Senaru the day before the trek to explore some of the beautiful waterfalls and surroundings, we can arrange this at no extra charge. We can also assist with Senaru accommodation recommendations, and bookings.

Day 1

Climbing to Senaru Crater Rim

Approximately 7 hours trekking, 10.5km distance, 2040m elevation gain (Timing is approximate and can vary greatly with group fitness levels)
  • 7:30 am – Briefing and issuing of equipment at Rinjani Dawn Adventures office, Senaru. You will have been provided an equipment list and packing guide when you booked your adventure with us. At our office you will be able to borrow trekking poles, poncho, and warm items of clothing (subject to availability). Please note we have a limited range of sizes, so it is always better to bring your own warm items of clothing.
  • 8 am – Registration at the Rinjani Trek Centre (RTC). Your national park entrance fee is included in the total cost of your package, but you will still need to sign the registration book before commencing the trek.
  • 8:15 am – Commence 2 day / 1 night Senaru Crater Rim trek (600m elevation). Walk for approximately 1 hour.
  • 9:15 am – Rest-stop at Pos 1 “Bunut Ngengkang” (750m elevation). Short re-hydration and stretching break for approx. 10-15 minutes.
  • Walk for approximately 2 hours.
  • 11:30 am – Rest-stop at Pos 2 “Montong Satas” (1500m elevation). We can take a lunch break either at this rest-stop or the next one, depending on how the group is feeling. Lunch breaks are usually 1-1.5 hours and involve the porters and guide cooking a nutritious hot meal. During this time, you are able to lie-down, stretch, take photographs and drink some tea or coffee.
  • Walk for approximately 2 hours.
  • 3 pm – Rest at Pos 3 “Mondokan Lokak” (2000m elevation). 10-15 minutes rest, before continuing onto the crater rim.
  • Approximately 2 hours walking from Pos 3 to the crater rim.
  • 5 pm – Arrive at Senaru Crater Rim (2641m elevation)
  • 5:15 pm – Porters and guide/s set-up camp and prepare dinner. Trekkers are free to wander around the crater rim and take some photos of the spectacular view! We suggest you change into warm clothes before sunset, as temperatures drop significantly at night. After dinner you are free to stargaze or go to bed. Sleep will seem like an appealing option after a hard day trekking!

Day 2

Climbing down the mountain

Approximately 7 hours trekking, 10.5km distance, 2040m descent (Timing is approximate and can vary greatly with group fitness levels)
  • 7:30 am – Wake-up, have a leisurely breakfast with your porters and guide whilst watching the sun come up. There will be time to take photographs and have a hot drink whilst the porters and guide are packing-up tents in preparation to walk-off the mountain.
  • 9 am – Leave Senaru Crater Rim campsite and commence the walk down off the mountain to Senaru village.
  • Rest and re-hydration breaks will be taken at regular intervals, but as you will be going predominantly downhill, this will be determined by the group (rather than scheduled). In saying that, it is likely you will stop at the same rest-stops as day 1, except in reverse!
  • 11:30 am – Lunch stop. Your lunch location on day 2 will be determined by the speed and progress your group is making. It will likely be Pos 2 “Montong Satas” (1500m elevation).

During this time, you are able to lie-down, stretch, take photographs and drink some tea or coffee.
  • Walk for approximately 2 hours.
  • 3 pm – Rest at Pos 3 “Mondokan Lokak” (2000m elevation). 10-15 minutes rest, before continuing onto the crater rim.
  • 3:15 pm – De-briefing back at Rinjani Dawn Adventures office. Return of any borrowed equipment, and retrieval of luggage left in our secure room.
  • 3:30 pm – Departure from Rinjani Dawn Adventures office to onward location. If catching boats to the Gili Isles we aim to have you in Bangsal Harbour before the departure of the last boat (usually before 5pm).
