[Mount Rinjani, 13 – 17 June 2016]
Mount Rinjani is an active stratovolcano, location in the north of Lombok. It is the highest mountain on the island of Lombok and the 3rd highest in Indonesia. What is appealing about hiking up to the peak is the beauty of the scenery in the crater and the spectacular view from the peak. Lava can be seen flowing into the crest-shaped lake and you can also see the trio of volcanoes in the east of Bali, the “Gilis”, and the island of Sumbawa.
Many believe that gods reside at the top of Mount Rinjani and that the water from the hot springs has healing properties. Hence, Mount Rinjani is also a popular pilgrimage site during the full moon where people make offerings and seek for its healing properties.
