The difference of Route between Sembalun Lawang and Senaru

Why Sembalun Lawang :

  1. Trekking point is harder because it is more steeply, hotter (less
  2. shade), and dusty
  3. View point on the way : open view of villages and savana
  4. View point at the rim camp area : apart of the lake view, the new volcano can not be seen clearly
  5. View point at the crater : we couldn't see the pick of Mt Rinjani
  6. temperature at camp area : lower thansenaru(colder)
  7. benefit : we could reach the pick of the mountain on the second day

Why Senaru:

  1. trekking point : rain forest. About 1 hour reach the rim, we will pass the most difficult point (walk through the magma stone and sand dune)
  2. best view point for seeing open view of lake, new volcano from the foot
  3. till the pick,and marvelous sunset.
  4. Needs more energy to reach the pick
