Activity Description

Rinjani, the second-highest volcano in Indonesia after Mount Kerinci in Sumatra, is one of the most beautiful mountains in Indonesia and a favorite hiking destination for international tourists. In addition to hiking, Mount Rinjani also offers paragliding, an amazing experience from a height of 3,726 meters above sea level.

We offer paragliding activities from the summit of Mount Rinjani, which presents spectacular natural scenery with the backdrop of the towering mountain and the vast savanna forest on the eastern side of Mount Rinjani. Enjoying the view from the mountain summit is common among Rinjani hikers. However, experiencing the beauty of a paragliding parachute will provide a different and unforgettable sensation.

This new package of hiking and paragliding is a breakthrough on Mount Rinjani. This activity can only be done by professionals with an intermediate license due to the challenging terrain and the take-off location, which differ from typical paragliding sites.

For those who enjoy high-altitude sports, paragliding from such a height with beautiful views is a dream come true. Especially flying over Mount Rinjani, known for its stunning beauty, with exotic views ranging from the summit of Rinjani, Segara Anak Lake, to the savanna forest.

We invite you to experience this extraordinary adventure and enjoy the natural beauty of Indonesia from a different perspective. Don't miss the opportunity to paraglide from the summit of Mount Rinjani and create unforgettable memories.

Requirements for Pilots to Fly from the Summit of Mount Rinjani:

  • Hold a Pilot License Level 2
  • Have more than 120 flight hours.
  • Have been actively flying for at least the past 2 months.
  • No history of heart disease or high blood pressure
  • Sign the flight declaration form.

These requirements ensure the safety and preparedness of pilots due to the challenging terrain and unique conditions of the take-off location at Mount Rinjani.


Arrival Day

Our team will pick you up at your arrival point and transfer you to Sembalun Village. Upon arrival in Sembalun, you will check in at the hotel and rest. If you arrive early, there will be an afternoon briefing about the landing site by the local pilot team. If you arrive in the evening, the briefing will take place the next morning before the hike begins.

Day Two

Wake up in the morning, have breakfast, and get ready to start the hike. Before the hike, participants will undergo a medical check at the National Park Resort Office. After that, the journey continues in an open-top vehicle. If you use a motorcycle taxi (ojek), you will be dropped off at Bukit Telu, and if not, you will be taken to the ojek station in Sajang Village. Using an ojek will save you around 4 hours of walking.

Meet the team at Post 2, and then continue the hike to Pelawangan Sembalun. The hike from Post 2 to Pelawangan takes about 5 hours. You are expected to arrive between 2 and 3 p.m.

Upon arrival at Pelawangan, enjoy hot coffee or tea with fried bananas. Afterward, rest while enjoying the view from Pelawangan Sembalun.

Dinner will be served between 6-7 PM. After dinner, rest to recover energy for the climb to the summit of Mount Rinjani the next day.

Day Three

Wake up around 2 AM, have breakfast, and start the climb to the summit of Mount Rinjani. The normal time to reach the summit is 2.5–3 hours, but it can take 3.5–5 hours if you are slow.

Parachutes and other equipment will be carried by porters, so you won't be burdened during the climb. Paragliding is not done directly from the summit of Mount Rinjani but from a location called Letter E, a point before reaching the summit. This location was chosen because it is the safest for paragliding take-off.

If the weather is favorable, meaning it is not foggy, and the wind direction and speed are suitable, paragliding takeoff can proceed. However, if the weather is unfavorable, the team and pilots will return to the campsite at Pelawangan Sembalun. The flight will then be rescheduled for day three.

Day Four

Wake up in the morning, have breakfast, and start the hike to the summit of Mount Rinjani. Once at the take-off location, preparations will be made, and paragliding take-off will commence.

If the weather is not supportive and it is not possible to fly, the team and pilots will return to the campsite. Upon arrival at Pelawangan, have breakfast and prepare to descend to Sembalun. You are expected to arrive in Sembalun around 3 PM, where a driver will pick you up at Bukit 3 or Kandang Sapi Trail. Afterward, you will be transferred to your next destination around Lombok.

Clients Love!

One of the best experiences in Lombok was to feel Kuta from above. If you're lucky, you might try sunset fly. It was all incredible and unforgettable. Mas Dodi as the leader and Mas Tomi as a pilot were so informative, friendly, and reliable. A recommended team to guide you in Kuta Lombok and a must-try experience. Would like to try it again someday!
