All about Rinjani-Sangkareang mountain hiking and what make unique
- The highest place in Lombok to enjoy the sunset with a warm drink. We are not camping at the top of Rinjani (3,726 meters above sea level) which is terrible, but we are sitting at 2,639 meters above sea level. It’s the best place to watch the sunset. If you like the orange color hanging in the sky and the reflection of the sea when the sun sets, don’t stress yourself trying to find a place for it. The Rinjani 2-day 1-night trekking route via Senaru is the best option for sunset lovers.
The situation in the camping area is relatively quiet and quiet compared to the camping spots in Rinjani Crater Rim at Senaru is quieter, quieter and cleaner.
Why is it quiet, it doesn’t mean that this place is not liked by climbers, but we are grateful that this place is protected from crowds, most of the climbers take the east route and get off the torean route
