Access to Lombok Island can be reached by land using the direct bus from Jakarta to Mataram by crossing twice using the ferry (Bali Strait and Lombok Strait), also by using airplanes.

Mount Rinjani has a crater about 10 km wide and there is a crater lake called Segara Anak lake with a depth of about 230 m. With the color of the water that turns blue like a sea child, the water flowing from this lake forms a very beautiful waterfall and flows through a steep gorge. Many climbers are fishing in this lake because there are many carp and tilapia.

There are 2 hiking trails to reach the Rinjani Peak, namely the Sembalun Line and the Senaru Line. The Sembalun Line is a favorite route for climbers because even though the tracks are longer but can save 700 m altitude.

On the Sembalun Line, climbers will go through a vast and beautiful expanse of savanna fields. There are 3 resting posts on this line, and after heading 3 the climbers will face steep slopes with a slope of about 60 degrees. While on the Senaru Line, climbers will pass through tropical forests that are quite thick and steep. Similar to the Sembalun Line, this route also has 3 resting posts before arriving at the pelawangan post which is usually used as a camping area.

The charm of Mount Rinjani is almost perfect, so there is no doubt that Rinjani is an attraction that is able to attract the interest of foreign and domestic tourists to climb it. And climbing Mount Rinjani will certainly be a memory and a life experience that will not be forgotten.
