How Difficult Climbing Rinjani ?
My Best Friend story: Mount Rinjani, the second highest volcano in Indonesia, is notoriously challenging to climb. The one concern I had in mind was whether I was fit enough to Climb Mount Rinjani. Having done the trek myself, I think the crater rim trek is still doable for a person with average fitness level.
Here is a background on her own fitness level – she would never say is a super fit person but she is not totally sedentary either. she usually able to complete a 5 to 10K run and I had been doing Barre Method (which consists of cardio and strength training) twice a week for about six months prior to the climb.
It was not by any means an easy climb but most of the struggle for me was actually a mental struggle. she had never done a long climb before and she doesn’t know what to expect. Think about it this way – a half marathon is definitely taxing, but it still ends in three hours or less. Climbing Mount Rinjani takes 2-3 times that and you get progressively exhausted with each stop. Thankfully to Guide and my teammates were very encouraging and this was what kept me going all the way to the top.
Keep in mind that you also have to bring your own bag which usually meant an extra 5-10kg of weight depending on how good of a packer you are. And this can feel very very heavy when you are tired!
