Mt. Rinjani forms the second highest volcanic peak in
Indonesia, part of celebrated “Ring of Fire”. The dramatic
landscape has been created over millions of year of cone -
building, violent explosions, and erosion. Forested slopes

and act as water - collectors for the hole of Lombok.
Mount Rinjani is an active volcano in Indonesia on the island
of Lombok. It rises to 3,726 m (12,224 ft), making it the
third-largest volcano in Indonesia. The first historical
eruption occurred in September of 1847. The volcano, and its
sacred, and spectacular Segara anak crater lake, are protected
by a national park established in 1997. The 6 km by 8.5 km
oval-shaped caldera is filled partially by a lake known as
Segara Anak. The eruptions of 1994, 1995, and 1996 have formed
a small cone in the center of the caldera and lava flows from
these eruptions have entered the lake.
The highlands are forest clad and mostly underdeveloped. The
lowlands are highly cultivated. Rice, soybeans, coffee,
tobacco, cotton, cinnamon, and vanilla are the major crops
grown in the fertile soils of the island.
For the people of Lombok, Sasak and Balinese alike, the
volcano is revered as a sacred place and abode of deities.

pilgrims who place offerings in the water and bathe away
disease in the hot springs.
duck Belibis is found here and several species of fish are
recorded. Mt. Rinjani, one of the over 40 National Parks
throughout Indonesia, was established in 1997.

and Sembalun Lawang to the east.
The challenging three-days or four-days Rinjani Trek route
from Senaru to the stunning crater rim (Plawangan), down to
