In the beginning, Broga hill (400m a.m.s.l elevation) was not that popular… Surrounded by palm oil estates and forest. Known probably only to the locals and the first climbers who explored the area or summit probably wasn’t even a little bit keen updating their selfies in insta.
At 3,726 m, Rinjani is the second highest volcano in Indonesia
Landed at Lombok international airport in the morning and from the airport, the drive took about 5 hour drive to Sembalun village, with stops and lunch along the way.
19/4. First camp, first light.
6:00pm Start from village to first camp site to avoid the heat and sun. This part of trek is through open space all the way. Arrived our campsite for the day after three hours walk, 6.5 KM. Had our first dinner at camp site that night, which will be mainly rice and soup, veggie or instant noodles. Tonight camp site is an open space in the fields.
