A 2 days 1 night scenic and Wildflowers hike to Propok

in Gunung Rinjani National Park

 

We invite you to join our two day walk through the grassland and tropical forests that clothe the ancient Sembalun Caldera and to camp the night in a hidden valley on the lower slopes of Mt. Rinjani. The second highest volcanic peak in Indonesia, Mt. Rinjani is sacred to Sasak and Balinese people and renowned for the challenging Rinjani trek. This beautiful nature hike wanders through the hills, providing an unforgettable Rinjani experience for the less ambitious walker.

 

Led by local guides, the first day starts early from the Rinjani information centre in east Lombok village of Sembalun Lawang(1,156m) and eastern gateway into Gunung Rinjani National park. Winding through agricultural fields belonging to the community, the walk climbs gently up 100m. climb to the undulating caldera rim from where there are sweeping views of Sembalun Lawang and Sembalun Bumbung villages. Formerly Sembalun was known for coffee production until the crop was changed to garlic to take advantage of the garlic boom in the early 1990s. On clear days many Lombok villages can be seen to the north with the ocean beyond. To the west is the soaring summit of mount Rinjani (3,72m).

 

After a couple of hours walk from Sembalun, reach the grassland area of Dandaun, home of wild animals particularly groups of wild pig. October is their breeding season. After another hour the walk arrives at the open grassland at Kanji where various species of orchid flourish in the trees and the ground is carpeted in wild flowers. Along the way the guide explains local agricultural activities, such as the traditional of owners calling their cows using only salt. After about there hours the trail reaches our camp site at propok(1,600), a beautiful flat valley with beautiful views of the topical forest. At sunset and early morning, wild animals such as pigs, deer, various bird and, if you are fortunate, even the rare black ebony leaf monkey may be observed here.

 

Next day the walk returns through the forest using a different route. Arrive in the afternoon at the Rinjani information centre at Sembalun Lawang. A special feature of this hike is to be accompanied by the local Pemangku (Traditional Spiritual Leader) and on the way blessings are made in sacred places to celebrate the creation of nature and ensure a safe journey.
