What you might see
What you might see around
surrounded over than 20 villagers and there are many trails
to go up the mountain. But there are only two main access to
go up to National Park Gunung Rinjani as the legal entrance
gate, Senaru Village and Sembalun Lawang Village.
Gunun Rinjani National Park lies within the major transition
zone (Wallaceae) where the flora and fauna of South East
Asia makes a dramatic transition into that which is typical
of Australasia. The Park has a rich variety of plants and
animals, although they can be hard to spot due to the
terrain and rainforest cover.
Sometimes seen early in the mornings is the rare black Ebony
leaf monkey, known locally as Lutung.
The Long tailed grey macaque or Kera is common in Lombok and
older males are seen on the crater rim. Rusa deer are forest
dwellers and are occasionally seen along the Rinjani trek
trail. 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 forest is the Leopard cat or Bodok alas, Palm
civet or Ujat and Porcupine or Landak.
A variety of colorful birds live in the forests of the
Park. Perhaps the best-known icon of the Park is the Sulfur,
Crested Cockatoo 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
Casuarina 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 our best-known sub-alpine plants.
One of the three famous caves (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
Healing Hot Springs
Aiq Kalak means hot water and it is used to cure various
diseases. 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.
People also use the hot spring 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 as
medicinal oil. Then the medicinal oil 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 disease.
Segara Anak Crater Lake
Segara Anak Lake is so wide it appears like the sea with its
blue water. The name Segara Anak means child of the sea.
Segara Anak Lake holds various mysteries and invisible
People feel content to stay a long time in this place
because of the large community of mysterious spirits which
live around 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.
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 or Edelweiss
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 Peak of Rinjani
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 daughter of a King who would not allow her to marry
her boyfriend. At a spring called Mandala she disappeared
and changed from the real world to the spirit world.
Mount Baru Jari (Gunung Baru)
Gunung Baru is the name of the new volcano which emerged in
the center of Segara Anak Lake. People believe that Gunung
Baru is the navel of Mt. Rinjani. That is why if Gunung Baru
erupted it will not harm 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
RINJANI MULANG PAKELEM CEREMONY
THE annual Hindu ceremony of Mulang Pekelem, a heritage
event in Lombok that dates from the 18th century invasion
and subsequent settlement of the island by Balinese from the
kingdom of Karangasem, always attracts hundreds of
Mulang Pekelem is a ceremony in which prayers and offerings
are made for the safety and prosperity of the people. It
dates from a time shortly after the Hindu settlement in west
Lombok in which the population was afflicted by prolonged
drought and an epidemic.
According to tradition, the king had an apocalyptic vision
and instituted a series of ceremonies in which gifts of
gold, silver and copper, in the shape of fish and prawns,
were offered to the gods at the lake, one of Indonesian
Hinduism's most sacred places, before each rainy season
(December to March). The offerings and prayers request peace
and prosperity for all.
This year's ceremony attracted followers from Bali and Java
as well as Lombok.
