Summit vs. Second Summit: Trekking Mount Rinjani in 2 Days

Rinjani summit

Mount rinjani trekking 2 day 1 night to summit and 2 day 1 night to second summit what different between!

In this article I will bring you in to deep the most significant differences between the two trekking programs, namely 2 days 1 night summit and 2 days 1 night second summit in terms of route, trek difficulty, scenic situation and my personal opinion while climbing for 9 years.

1. Climbing Gate Route

    • 2 day 1 night to summit

The main aim of this climb is to climb to the real peak of Mount Rinjani, starting from Sembalun Lawang, namely village on east Lombok and very famous trekking route to as starting point to Mount Rinjani National Park. Located on the east side of Mount Rinjani, most of the area is barren and sandy, and much of it is covered by mountain grass vegetation.

    • 2 day 1 night to second summit

Climbing to the second summit of Rinjani, local people know it better as Mount Stampol, it is part of Mount Rinjani which extends from the north to the west side of Mount Rinjani, this route is relatively greener because it is covered with rainforest vegetation, if you like walking in the forest this route is suitable For you to choose, climbing to the second summit of Rinjani must pass through Senaru village as the gateway village to the crater rim for overnight stay.
Because these two paths are separated by a natural landscape in the form of a valley from this mountain, this path becomes separate, as if Mount Rinjani was split into two.

2. .  2 Day 1 night Trek difficulty

Because trek 2 day 1 night to summit ascent involves difficult climbs and exposure to high elevations, it requires a higher level of fitness and climbing experience.

Even though it’s still difficult, the 2 day 1 night to second summit hike is usually easier, allowing people a slower pace and more time to enjoy the views.

3.  2 Day 1 night Situation and scene

The most significant thing about these two trekking programs is the camping situation, in the 2 days 1 night to second summit program the camping situation is very busy and to be honest I as a guide don’t like that kind of situation, while in the 2 days 1 night to second summit program the camping ground situation is relatively quiet and quiet, apart from that, if you really want to enjoy the view on Mount Rinjani more peacefully, I recommend taking the 2 day 1 night to second summit program
