Climbing to the top of Lombok volcano, 3726 meters above sea level, and Lake Segara Anak can start from Sembalun, Senaru, or Torean villages. For climbers or adventurers who want to climb to the top of Rinjani first before going down to Lake Segara Anak or just climb to the top, they can only go through the Sembalun trekking gate in East Lombok.

For adventurers who want to go to the lake before climbing the summit of the mountain, the best alternative is to start the hiking trail from Senaru or Torean villages in northern Lombok.

Meanwhile, via the Tetebatu and Aik Berik hiking trails, you cannot climb to the top, only get to the edge of the crater of volcanoi with a maximum altitude of 3200 meters above sea level, and via the Timbanuh hiking trail in East Lombok, you can reach the second peak or the southern peak of Mount Rinjani with an altitude of 3500 meters above sea level.
