Might To See On Rinjani Over the +-20 villages surround Rinjani Mount and there are many routes up the mountain, but the main access is from Senaru, Torean in the North and Sembalun Lawang to the East  West Nusa Tenggara.

Gunung Rinjani national park lies with in the major transition zone (Wallace) where the flora and fauna of south East Asia makes a dramatic transition into that which is typical of Australia. The park has a rich variety of plants and animals, although they can be hard to spot due to the terrain and rainforest cover.

Some times seen early in the morning is the rare black Ebony leaf monkey, know locally as lutung/kepitu) The long tailed gray macaque of kera is common in Lombok and order males are seen on the crater rim, Rusa deer are forest dwellers and are occasionally seen a long the Rinjani trek train.

The smaller barking deer or kijang has an alarm call with a distinct dog like bark. Look for the disturbed ground where the wild pig or babi hutan has been foraging. Also found in the jungle is the leopard cat or bodok alas, palm civet or ujat and porcupine or landak.

A variety of colorful birds live in the jungle of the park. Perhaps the best know iconof the park is the crested cocka too that is not found any further west of Lombok. Many of the forest-dwelling animals, insects, birds, civets, and monkeys owe their survival to the wild fig tree or beringin as a provider of food and shelter.

The pine-like casuarinas species, Cemara, are a feature of the grassy higher slopes. Orchids or anggrek are also a feature of the grassland areas, as is edelweiss or bunga abadi growing above the tree line, it is a beautiful icon of the park and one of the park and one of our best-know sub-alvine plants.

Local mountain Strawberry 
This plant grows along the route to Mt. Rinjani. It has thorns like the rose and the fruit is red like strawberry. It has a sweet and slightly sour taste and is good to eat when trekkers are hungry and thirsty.

Eternal Flower/Bunga Abadi (Edelweis)
The plant or the flowers should not be taken because it grows in the park and in the mysterious world of the spirit kingdom. In the past, someone who wanted this flower must be brave enough to fight and gamble his soul. That is why the flower is called Sandar Nyawa. The flower has never wilted and is as old as the mysterious spirits.

The following stories are a selection taken from a booklet for village guides containing a collection of traditional stories that have been related for generations by the native people living of (Senaru hamlet).

Gunung Baru Jari 2.376m asl (New Volcano Mountain) Gunung Baru is the name of the new volcano which emergedin the center of Segara Anak Lake. People believe that Gunung Baru is the navel of Mount Rinjani That is why if Gunung Baru erupted it will not harm to the people of Lombok unless the eruption is from the Peak of Mt. Rinjani. Some people said that the 1994 Gunung Baru eruption was caused by siprits who were building something because the stones that erupted were arranged in an orderly and attractive way at the foot of New Volcano Mountain and the last eruption of black lava occurred in 2016.

Segara Anak Crater Lake Segara Anak Lake is so wide it appears like the sea with it’s blue water. The name Segara Anak mean schild of the sea. The Lake Segara Anak with a lake are covers an of ​​1,100 ha with a depth of 230 meters, the caldera also contains hot springs Sasak tribe and Hindu people assume the lake and the mount are sacred and some religious activities are occasionally done in the two areas.

Segara Anak Lake (2000m asl) holds various mysteries and invisible power. People feel content to stay a long time in this place because of the large community of mysterious spirits which live arround the lake.The local people believe that if the lake looks wide when seen at a distance it is a sign they will live to an old age or if the lake seems narrow it is a sign of a short age. So in order not to be pessimistic, people quickly purify themselves by lifting up their spirits and calm soul and look at the lake contentedly.In the area of the lake it is forbidden to have sexual intercourse, to complain or say dirty things. we must be patient when facing problems.

Caves (Goa) One of the three famous caves in Mount Rinjani National Park (Goa Susu, Goa Payung, dan Goa Manik), Susu Cave is a good place for self reflection and is often used as a place to meditate. The people with unclean and envious mind will have difficulty entering Susu cave which has a narrow entrance, but people with noble and pure mind will easily enter the cave. Inside the cave water drips from the tip of a stone which looks like a nipple, so people say the water in Goa Susu tastes different. Inside Goa Susu is hot and there is a lot of smoke which looks like cooking steam so people call this Mengukus (hot house) and sometimes people call it Rontgen (X-Ray).

Healing Hot Springs Aiq Kalak means hot water and it is used to cure various deseases. One of the hot springs is named Pangkereman Jembangan which is meant a place for dipping. The water which spurts out of the spring is very hot. Weapons such as keris, swords, big knives, and lances are dipped in the spring to test their magic power. If the weapon become sticky it means that the weapon is bad and has no magical power. However if the weapon remain unchanged it means that the weapon has supernatural power and the power and the strength will be increased.

The People also use the hotspring to make medicine from coconut cream. After dipping a bottle of coconut cream in the hot spring if the liquid becomes clear oily it can be used a smedicinal oil, Then the medicinaloil is used for good things and is called Siu Satus Tunggal or in Bayan language Siu Satunggal which means that it can be used to cure a thousand kinds of desease.

Another interesting fact is that such comforting water is able to eradicate stresses and rejuvenate energy. The locals even believe it is able to overcome some diseases such as stroke, high blood pressure, skin issues, make you live long and stay young if you believe when pray to god in this place.

Summit Rinjani 3.726m asl The people of Lombok believe that the peak of Mt. Rinjani is where Dewi Anjani, the queen spirit and ruler of Mt. Rinjani lives. To the south-east from the peak in a sea of dust called Segara Muncar is the invisible palace of the queen Dewi Anjani and her followers. They are good spirits. According to a story about the Queen Spirit Dewi Anjani she was the daugther of a King Named (Jabal Markiu) who would not allow her to marry her boyfriend. At a spring called Mandala, she dissappeared and changed from the real world to the spirit world.
