Trekking on Mount Rinjani was a great experience. You can not go to Bali without a small detour from Lombok and the volcano. It's a great opportunity to exceed your limits and discover a breathtaking landscape! Thanks to odenticktrekking.com (Especially to Mr. Ogut as the boss) for Good organization, good equipment, delicious food, great team . Our guide has always... More

Climbing mount Rinjani is one of the most amazing things I have ever done BUT also the HARDEST! We had absolutely NO idea what we were letting ourselves into (myself and my MOTHER). Luckily my mother is really fit and I was at the time, but we still found it such a challenge. We decided to climb mount Rinjani on... More

Firstly if you want to climb the volcano, be prepared it is key!! Don't go up with-out a water proofs, warm clothes for when you get higher up and a head torch. You need to bring these yourself. I would class myself as fairly physically fit. I trekked in Sapa, go to the gym 4 times a week etc. this... More

First thing first, the scenery of the mountain is fabulously wonderful. Just look at my display picture. But like every thing pretty either woman or place, you have to suffer before you can enjoy. This is a hell of a hike. Very difficult and need both mental and physical strength to make it. Luckily I did make it to the... More

It's hard not to see the amount of rubbish on this mountain. A great trek if you can stomach eating beside rotting rubbish and rats coming up to your tent. We camped at base camp 2,600m up and a rat came right up to our tent as we were eating our dinner. You eat lunch at various spots that are... More

The travel agencies all around Bali and Lombok will not tell you this, they will say it's fine for everyone. But from our experience, please consider the following: If you are recreational trekker, opt for 2 days/1 night option from Senaru to the crater rim. Very stunning and rewarding views!!! But still very hard job! If you are experienced and... More

I was concerned after booking given the cost of the trip but the staff and the guides was exceptional. They were very organized, professional and accommodating of... More

Mt. Rinjani was an amazing experience all around, but it was definitely due to the amazing tour company I booked with. I read through many tour groups, but Rudy Trekkers stood out. They were a little pricer compared to the other groups, but after comparing experiences with other trekkers on the mountain, I definitely got my money's worth. We were... More

I am a 40 year old inflicted with asthma since childhood but neither age nor health were what prevented me from reaching the summit. I should have been more warmly dressed and I should have wolfed down the breakfast laced with sugar prepared by the porters, even if it meant washing it all down with water. I also should have...

I am a Singaporean female who recently climbed Mount RInjani with my sister. As a nature lover, I was very impressed with the awesome views right from the ground of the mountain all the way to the summit. The climb was tedious, steep and challenging, but the natural scenes of Mount Rinjani and the breathtaking summit views made the climb... More
