An ascent to the rim of the Mount Rinjani volcano on the island of Lombok is a challenging but spectacular trek. From a base at Senaru, the trek takes you through mountain forest and then up the barren slopes of the volcanic cone. The rim at 2,600 metres offers spectacular views into the crater as well as of Rinjani's peak and the Segara Anak crater lake.

The archipelago of Indonesia is rugged and exotic. A land of impressive volcanoes and the great Komodo Dragon, this section of the island chain from East Java, Bali, Lombok to Rinca is stunningly diverse. From lush tea plantations to barren volcanic summits, from the gentle Balinese culture of Ubud to the wilds of Rinca, the home of the world's largest lizard. Our trekking adventure kicks off in the beautiful forests of Eastern Java, as we ascend to climb the active Mount Welirang and Mount Arjuna before heading to Mount Bromo for an impressive sunrise hike. Heading east we revitalise at Ubud and head to Rinca Island, the home of the fearsome Komodo Dragon. For many the highlight of this region is an ascent of spectacular Mount Rinjani (3726m), Indonesia's second highest volcano, semi active and held in awe by the islanders who regularly ascend the steep trail to the crater rim. We follow in their footsteps and explore the bright emerald green waters of Lake Segara Anak and attempt an early morning summit attempt to this impressive peak for fabulous views. What better way than to end this adventure than on the island of Bali.
