Indonesia

( CNN) More than 600 stranded hikers have been successfully rescued from Mount Rinjani on Indonesia’s Lombok Island, two days after a powerful 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck the popular tourist destination.

The hikers had become trapped on the mountain’s numerous hiking routes after the earthquake, which struck early Sunday, unleashed a series of landslides blocking their path back down to safety.

Hundreds of foreign hikers were among the 600 rescued from the 3,726 meter( 12,224 ft) mountain, said Nugroho.
