Almost 700 trekkers headed down Mount Rinjani on Indonesia's tourist island of Lombok on Monday, a day after a powerful natural disaster of magnitude 6.4 terrified the climbers as boulders tumbled down the slopes of the volcano.
The electricity supply was cut in Sembalun, a sparsely populated area on the northern side of the island.
The quake damaged dozens of houses and continued to send a wave of aftershocks.
Tourist Jean-Paul Volckaert was woken in his hotel by the quake and said: "We jumped out of our bed to avoid anything falling on our heads".
"Luckily there was no damage to our building, our neighborhood was relatively untouched, but I know there have been casualties and a lot of damage in the north of the island", Volchaert said.
He said: "The water in the pools was swaying like a wild sea", as tremors shook the island for between "20 to 30 seconds".
And more than 1,000 homes were damaged by the natural disaster, said Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, a spokesman for the agency.
Indonesia's geophysics and meteorology agency said that at least 11 aftershocks were recorded after the quake.
