After reading all the reviews on Tripadvisor I expected a mountain full of garbage and an awefully heavy track. Both were sort of true, but by far less worse than expected and I would definitely not let this keep you off from doing the trekking. The achievement and experience is just so freaking amazing. And the trekking is beautiful. Yes,... More

We did a 2 day / 1 night crater rim walk with Rudy Trekker and had a excellent experience. Right from when we first contacted Rudy Trekker we were impressed by their speedy and professional communication. They were very flexible with transport arrangements - we were picked up from Senggigi and taken all the way to our hotel door on... More

We did Mt Rinjani with Galang Ijo in July 2014. They have a range of treks available but we did a 3D2N trek from Sembalun - Rim - Summit - Crater Lake - Rim - Senaru. The service from Galang Ijo was exceptional, the package included pick up/drop off from/to anywhere in lombok, accommodation the night before, english speaking guides,... More

We did a 4d3n trek with green rinjani. Apparently it was the high season and they could have ran out of porters and guides. So Ari, the 25 year old owner of green rinjani got his cousin, Macho (a veteran guide) to be our guide. We merge the group with 8 other climbers as they do not have sufficient porters... More

Before starting with the review, two comments upfront: (1) Be prepared for this trek. You will have to climb around 3100 m in height (and if you do the 3D/2N trip, you do this in 30 hours!!) and the total trek is about 30 km (either up or down). (2) I know that Rudy addressed the Indonesian government already, but... More

You want some, it'll give you it. I can't speak. Like walking to hell, but worse... You have to turn around and walk all the way back again. Great views if you have the energy to look at them. Good luck and god speed
