walking through open grassland used as cattle grazing by
Resting at Pos 1 Pemantauan (1,300), after about three hours

the beautiful views of Mount Rinjani summit (3,726 m). After
another hours ascent to Pos 3 Pada Balong (1,800 m), we

wild pigs and the long-tailed grey macaque monkeys to the

views across the Wallace Line to Bali, Mount Agung and Sumbawa,

Rinjani crater. Mt. Baru is an island in the lake and an
active volcano, last erupting dramatically in 1994.

bunga abadi to the crater rim camp for a well-deserved
breakfast. It takes two to three hours down the steep trail

and pilgrimage hot springs, believed to have healing powers.

to Plawangan 1 senaru Crater Rim (2,461 m). After lunch
enjoy the views of the lake from the other side, relax,
explore and await the sunset. If the wind is cold, you may

in the more sheltered forest.

village (601 m), through thick tropical forests rich in
flora, bird life and a variety of butterflies. You might see
orchid and, if lucky, the rare black ebony leaf monkey,
known locally as lutung. Rest stop are taken along the way,
with village stories and local legends related by your
guide. Features include the Batu Penyesalan stone and banyan
tree Bunut Ngengkang that looks like someone standing with
