This Rinjani hiking package provides the easiest trekking option, but still gives you some of the best views of the volcano. This is ideal if you’re very short on time, or are only interested in reaching the crater rim for the fantastic views. It only takes you to the crater rim on the Senaru side of the volcano. You still get to see the beautiful view over the lake and the volcano crater, and you will be camping at 2 600+ meters altitude, enjoying a beautiful sunset and sunrise.
If you have enough time, and you have a good fitness level, we recommend the Rinjani 3 Days 2 Nights trekking Package (via Sembalun) or the 4 Days 3 Nights Rinjani Tour Packages instead. They offer the complete package of activities, so you reach the summit, and can bathe in the lake and hot springs.
