We are a group of 8 trekkers ascending Mt Rinjani with Lombok Adventure Club. The pickup at the airport was swift and on schedule. We made our way to Sembalun Camp Hotel for our first night stay before our trek the next morning. Bathing is a pain as no heater is available and the temperature is freezing at night. Do... More

This is an absolutely beautiful mountain. It is a pity that the locals and hikers (to a lesser extent) have ruined it by turning it into a garbage dump. It seems like a lot of people are saying that on here, I just want you to know to expect worse than what you've read. My wife and I played an... More

My partner and I completed the two day/one night crater rim trek luxury option with Green Rinjani last week. It was an amazing experience that we will never forget! We chose Green Rinjani because the reviews were good and they are one of the few trek operators who carry their own rubbish down the mountain. They also plant a tree... More

In July 2014, my wife and I hiked to the summit of Mt. Rinjani. After much research, we decided to use John's Adventure because it was recommended in a couple of travel books and on several web sights. Our trip included airport pickup from the Lombok international airport, an overnight stay at John's hotel in Senaru before our hike, 4... More

We opted to go with a company called 'Green Rinjani' they offered different packages basic , medium and luxury. We opted for the middle package which meant we had porters to carry our tents and sleeping bags, they also cooked our food for us and generally looked after us very well. These men work very hard and risk their lives... More

I read a lot of information and comments about the trekking route and company before going to Lombok alone. I did the 3D2N program finally, it's hard to me especially the 2nd day, as it was needed to climb up to the summit from 2am, then down to the lake for lunch and hot spring relax, afterwards, climb up again...

The hike (and views) was amazing, and yes, you need to be of a certain level of physical fitness as the climb can be quite torturous at some points. Met so many trekkers who were unprepared for the hike (wrong shoes, insufficient warm clothing, etc) and a number of them did not manage to make it to the summit. You... More

I embarked on the nightmare called Mount Rinjani despite all the reviews on tripadvisor warning me about how strenuous it was. However, without knowing the physical fitness of the reviewers & the steepness of the trek, it was hard to judge accurately... thus I will write this very thorough review to disclose the truth about trekking Rinjani. Trek programme we... More

I visited Mount Rinjani last week. The first thing is that I must express is that I was very impressed with the team of people from Galang Ijo. I decided to go with Galang Ijo because I always had the prompt and clear response to the questions that I had. Some company responded with the info from the web page,... More

I had read posts on tripadvisor about the garbage on mount rinjani, but it wasn't prepared for how much was there. Literally the entire mountain is covered with rubbish, and since there are no proper toilets, people just go anywhere they want. So there is also the smell of human waste in many places along the trek. It is really... More
