Rinjani is Indonesia’s second highest volcano (after Mt. Kerinci in Sumatra), standing as tall as 3.726m asl. It is located in East Lombok regency, and is close to the popular Gili islands. Rinjani is easily one of the most popular mountains in Asia, thanks to the easy transportation infrastructures and its spectacular view. The volcano complex, Samalas, was once known to have one of the biggest eruptions on earth, leaving a big caldera that we know nowadays. Climbing Rinjani is definitely one rewarding experience for you. As the saying goes ; the hardest mountain always gives the best view.
