1. Sembalun Route

Reporting from Kompas, Head of Mount Rinjani National Park (TNGR), Sudiyono stated that this tourist hiking trail will open in the beginning of April 2019. But a survey needs to be done first.

After a survey conducted on March 16-18, 2019 by the TNGR team, the climbing path of Mount Rinjani which is dominated by savanna fields still seems difficult to pass.

Even more so when the survey was conducted, there had been an earthquake measuring 5.8 and 5.2 on the Ritcher Scale. This disaster caused the land located 120 meters before Plawangan Sembalung to collapse.

3. Aik Berik Line

The Aik Berik line is still newly opened after other roads have not been accessed due to landslides. This route was actually opened on 19 November to 31 December 2018.

Eventhough, climbing can only be done until Plawangan. Climbers are also not allowed to go down to Segara Anak Lake because it is still too dangerous.
