TREK TIMBANUH ROUTE
or We call the Jati Trek
Trekking Club Conjunction with No Roads Expeditions, In May
2007, we conducted the first ever ascent of Rinjani from the
southern village of Timbanuh. This awesome journey took us
to the never explored southern rim, down to the shores of
the lake, where we used inflatable rafts to take us to
Gunung Baru base camp. We then headed to Rinjani's summit
and ended the expedition in the beautiful Senaru.
This expedition was the first of its kind and should still
be considered by those with an adventurous spirit, a
flexible mind and a strong body.
The expedition will attempt the Rinjani summit from inside
the calderas, up to the final summit ridge that is used
today. We will approach this side of the mountain from the
southern rim via Timbanuh. From there we will head to Segara
Anak and then use inflatable to transport us to the shores
of our first base camp. This camp will be used to explore
the base of the active volcano, Gunung Baru, and then
ultimately climb its 500m slope to its rim. We will peer
into the calderas of a mountain that only erupted last year.
From base camp 1 we will start our push to Rinjani's summit
from inside the calderas, up its western slope to the
present day base camp. We will camp and the following day
summit Rinjani, returning to Senaru via the normal route.
On the southern sections, ropes will be used to assist
trekkers down the steep cliff faces. This is a truly unique
way to climb one of the best volcanoes in the world.
Timbanuh Trek Route 7 days/ 6
Early morning we leave to hotel for Timbanuh village, it
takes around 2 hrs driving.
Then start for the beginning of a challenging 8 hour
day. We head for Timbanuh on Rinjani's southern slope.
From there we will climb to the south rim. Awesome views
over the lake, Bali and Rinjani's summit.
After a delicious breakfast, we head down to the lake
which we believe won't take too long. From there we set
up the inflatable and paddle towards Gunung Baru. Set up
camp at the base of Gunung Baru.
Today we will climb to the summit of Gunung Baru and
look inside an active volcano. The going will be very
tough as the slopes are pure scoria. Back to base camp.
Hot spring baths to sooth our bodies.
Today we climb the inner calderas to the present base
camp. Great views again and anticipation of summit day
Early morning wake up call, 2am. We head off for
Rinjani's summit and hopefully reach it by sun rise. We
will be aided by a full moon. Back down to the lake and
other hot springs.
Trek to the northern rim where we will camp for the
night and see exactly the journey we have just done.
Back down to Senaru for a nice shower, food and a walk
to the local waterfalls. Great little village and a must
see. If we are lucky we may get involved in some local
Sasak stick fighting.
