We had an amazing experience, one of the highlights of our trip in Indonesia! The Rudy Trekker team was highly professional. They brought food for an army, and we were just two. It's always better to have more they said :) the views were amazing. We did the trek in 3 days instead of 4. We worked hard, but it... More

After reading good reviews over this network called World Heritage Network who is also highly recommended by our colleagues who had been with them, we decided to engage their services. After a few exchange of emails with them: worldheritage101@yahoo.com we were all set up . They also have a website with further information on the type of treks and tours... More

Did a 4d/3n trek with Rinjani Trekking Club and it was a great experience. It was well organised from pickup to drop off, you dont have to worry about anything just bring your best fitness level. This is not a walk in the park. It is bloody hard, 5-7 hrs daily trek, 40% elevation and the summit on lava rock... More

We loved it! Very hard second day but worth it. The company we went with was so well organized, guide was very friendly and had lots of good food and plenty of water for everyone. Just make sure you bring lots of warm clothes for the summit and good shoes.

We made the right choice to go with Rudy Trekker. Service was excellent, food was very good and the porters made sure they arrive at the camp sites early enough to secure the best location to set up our tents. They set up fire and were always waiting for us ready to whip up a drink and meal unlike a... More

Me and my friend did the trek 3 days/2 nights up to summit. We decided to book our trek with Full Rinjani because he has good reviews online on tripadvisor. He picked up us in Lombok airport and drive us to Senaru village for the night before we started our trek. Full invited us to had dinner in his house... More

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
