Sembalun Alternative trekking

Sembalun East Lombok, located  on the foot of mountain rinjani. Sembalun is excellent route for domestic and international trekkers because Sembalun is the nearest point to get to the Rinjani summit. Starting in June until October usually Mountain rinjani started to open, and for some reason like eruption and bad weather sometimes rinjani closed until condition is permitted. rinjani closure resulted in drastically reduced foreign tourists until percent. but now many alternative trekking packages offered by local organizers like maria guest house trekking organizer and  rinjani explore. Several alternative packages offered by most local trekking organizer are:


This is only 2 hours program walking around the village, down to the paddy field where you can hale the fresh smell of our famous garlic plantation, various kinds of vegetables and of course rice and red rice, small chat with the farmers to practice your bahasa maybe, then we continue walking to the old village Desa Beleq where you can witness the old architecture of our ancestors, we walk back to village trough the thick bamboo garden and the last destination is the traditional hand weaving. There, our Mothers will happily let you to try their tools and show you how to do it, patiently try to explain the very complicated equipment until you can make one `tone` or two (it is sounds like music tones when the lady hit the tools). After experiencing the process, maybe then you will be interested to get yourself a Sarong, or small scarf as a gift for your family and friends back home.


The most attractive alternative trek we can offer you. Pergasingan is one of the steepest hills which require you to be very well prepared. This is two days and one night program, start at 08.00, lunch break at Sempronan (3/4 way up) and continue walking for another 2 hours until we reach Dandulang where we camp. After dinner, our guide will go to the stream to set the fish catcher (Kodong in local term) and you are welcome to join him. On the second day morning, after breakfast our guide will take you to take the Kodong up from the stream, there will be some fish waiting to company the white rice by lunchtime. Walking down to Obel-obel beach is really tiring yet fascinating, 8 hours walking with a short stop for lunch will drain your energy, we will walk trough the thick rain forest, stiff and slippery. But as you get to Obel-obel, you will think that it is worth it. Beautiful beach and young coconut will refresh your body and mind; we will spend few hours there before we drive back to Sembalun.


Another hills called Kanji and Dendaun, closer yet as beautiful as Propok. This is only one day program unless you want us to arrange your one night stay there which is also not a bad choice.
