Alternative Trek 3D2N to Rinjani Summit & Lake (via Sembalun – Ends in Sembalun)

Sembalun Village
3 Days 2 Nights

Lake Segara Anak has been indefinitely closed for hikers since July 29th, 2018. 2 days camping at the crater rim was the only one activity allowed to do during hiking season 2019.

Learning from the recent survey – there is a big possibility to have a chance to climb Rinjani summit and descend to the crater lake to visit the hot springs.

However, this is only doable from Sembalun village and return to Sembalun village; cracks are said to have been found in some locations along the trail up from Lake Segara Anak to Senaru Crtaer Rim, which is also deemed to be prone to landslides.
