Mount Rinjani early morning

A view of Mt Rinjani early in the morning...the lava flowing out of Mt Baru is quite visible at night and early morning.

 

When we arrived in POS III the day before, our mountain guide asked us to make a decision if we wanted to camp in the Senaru crater rim or at the campsite below the crater rim. Our mountain guide informed us that we may not me able to sleep well with the sound of Mt Baru erupting at night. Everyone in our group was unanimous in saying to camp and sleep in the crater rim. We have walked so much so why not camp in the crater rim to have a great view of the crater lake, Mt Baru and the summit of Mt Rinjani.

 

During the night we can hear Mt Baru making all the sounds which I didn't really mind. I was more bothered with the coldness that night.
