The mountain itself is amazing. It isn't worth though it if you don't make it to the top and that is hard! This is an advanced hike, good fitness good shoes and good determination are a must. If you think it's going to be a leisurely walk in the park you are wrong and will slow down your group and... More

Started our climb from Senaru and ended off to Sembalun on a 4 days 3 nights hike up the mountain. Along the way, witnessed many awesome views around the vicinity! The Segara Anak Lake is a must go too. Fresh air, breathtaking views and chill weather conditions, what more can I say. Before going for this trip, it's best to... More

Pay more and get a good organisation. You need a least 2 porters and a guide if have a group of 2 tot 3 people. I you have a larger group, at least 1 guide per 5 people, not everyone has the same pace. Start early, in the late afternoon mist sets in and then you don't see anything anymore

Once the peak is reached, it's breathtaking. Meanwhile, the trek is difficult. It is a live vulcano, as such there is not much shaded areas and trees, to make the trek enjoyable. It hot, ultra violet rays are high, it's humid and dry, the trails are sandy and very dusty. However, it extremely cold and windy at above 3000 meters.... More

The trek up Rinjani was one of the physically hardest things I've done, but it's a once-in-a-lifetime experience I would recommend! Fortunately, we were well taken care of by our guide, Agus, and his team. From cooking and setting up camp, to making sure we got up and down safely, even putting a sheet over the tent to shield us... More
