Overview

Mount Rinjani Tour

If you are looking for a sense of achievement then look no further than a trek to the top of Mount Rinjani. This is not a challenge for the faint hearted as getting to the top will definitely test your resolve and requires some grit and determination. At an elevation of 3,726 metres Mount Rinjani is the second highest mountain in Indonesia outside Papua. Many people that undertake the trek do not make it all the way and stop when they are greeted by the beautiful views of the crater lake at 2,639 metres. To make the extra climb it takes a higher level of fitness and inner strength. but the achievement of making it to the top is an incomparable feeling.

 

You will get to witness the wonderful scenery, take some incredible photos and return home with many magical memories. If you want to feel invigorated and are keen for a challenge this tour is definitely for you.
