We did do a bit of research on conditions before doing the trek but it did not relate to the sheer awesomeness of this!!! It is a hard trek and do not let anyone else tell you otherwise ! As other reviewers have mentioned there is a massive problem with rubbish on the mountain but we found that it was... More

I wish I'd read other reviews on Trip Advisor before embarking on a trek up Mt Rinjani. First of all, the trekking company: we booked a 3d/2n trek with John's Adventures. I've read mixed reviews of their company, but we had no real problem. 300 000 rupiah per person including accommodation in Senaru the night before the trek and transfers... More

Amazing company, had an amazing few days on our 3D/2N trek. We rare with Antonio. He was great. Nothing was too much to ask. You pay more for Rudy but I would 100% recommend doing that. You get amazing food (if you get Antonio make sure you ask for the spring rolls) , great equipment and staff that go that... More

I walked this mountain and survived.... I went with John's Adventure's which I will discuss more later. Day 1 - Walk from visitors centre to the top of the rim and camped. Very busy campsite. No functioning toilets so lots of unpleasant surprises everywhere. Lots and lots of rubbish as people don't seem interested in carrying it down again. Mice... More

We booked a 2D/1N with Mr. John's adventures after they featured in the Lonely Planet guide. After agreeing a price before we arrived in Bali, we were disappointed to realise that we were paying a lot more than other people were for the 3day trek. We asked John why this was, but he avoided the question. As it was the... More

We decided to do the 2D1N trek with Galangijo expeditions. This trek takes you to the crater rim and back. You get amazing views of the lake, the volcanic mountain near the crater rim and amazing views of the sunset. Although many people have mentioned that this climb can be easily done by beginners, don't be fooled, as it's quite... More

I read other reviews on here about the trash and feces everywhere, and decided to ignore it and do the trek anyways. I just got back from 3d/2n of being disgusted and appalled at the amount of trash, holes of uncovered toilet paper and feces, and piles of burning garbage that litter the mountain. It was so disgusting in some... More

We were doing a whirlwind Southeast Asian tour and managed to squeeze in a 2day/1night trek to the summit of Rinjani with Rudy Trekker. They arranged all the logistics, pick up, hotel and by far the best service while on the mountain. It was evident from our interaction with other trekkers that we had chosen the right company - professional,... More

Mt. Rinjani is in overall a good experience. Stunning view with a great landscape. You need to be fit for a 3days/2 night package. When the time allow you I recommend the 4 days/3night tour which gives you one more night at the lake. The first day is already hard, we hiked up from around 700m up to 2.600m for... More
